tHAT end a busy week
Am I near the happy endding
Not quite ; when I got the disks from my friend . Turn on the machine go to setup change to boot from CD , Insert the win98 starter disk , it run run run and a message that say it found win2000 OS and ask for the disk win2000 . I removed the 98 disk and put in the 2000 disk in , It load quite quick then ask me for the product key. I fill in then every thing go smoothly
Now I can access my old files in drive E:\ and F:\ Every thing is fine .
There is a mixed up :
Old E:\ now becomes D:\
Old F:\ now becomes E:\
And the CD ROM now becomes F:\
I did not change the cable ,I mean swap the IDE cabs
I did not change the disk drive page in BIOS setup
I spend some times muck around without result . OK I am happy with the what I have .It does not matter if you have CD ROM drive designates as F:\ doesn't it . the more important thing you and me should do now is protect what we have after the painful experience .
I connect the internet , download and install ewido , run ... no problem found in c:\D:\ and E:\
I found that the JPG pictures could not be open and paint only work with bitmap . that the graphic on screen was very bad . later i realised that the video card deos not have the driver .More time spend to search for the driver . The card is Winfast Geforce 256 DDR ( it has 32 MB ) download more software then the pictures all fine
I download Yahoo messenger with voice because my sister now crazy because long times no chat with friends . The voice now very good but she could not see what she typing in the dialogue window , it appears in the typing window but after send it disappear
Oh oh later i found that messenger with voice not work with IE5 . Download install IE6 fix that probem
My computer work like a champ until 2 hours ago = 20:00 sat 06may06
