  1. My Daughter had this trouble last week. I did all the things posted here, change ram etc. I did one extra thing though, I took the battery out of the motherboard, left it for 30 seconds, put it back in, and her computer fired up fine. She has not had any more trouble.
  2. Regarding your floppy disks. I have had the same trouble. The first question I was asked was, "How old is the floppy disk". Mine was created 2 years ago. I was then told that floppy disks do deteriorate fairly quickly, it is better to transfer all data on floppys to cdrom as soon as possible. Hope this helps a bit.

  4. All are very interesting replies, But let us get back to Champion Munch original question. As Champion Munch is in Australia, (Same as I am) there are very limited cable connections. Difference between ADSL and DSL in Australia, none. Some providers promise faster connections than others, in truth, they are almost the same. all of them.

  6. I had this problem last night with my Daughter's computer. It would show COM1, windows reported no conflicts, but the modem would not work. In desperation, in control panel-modems, I removed the modem, In my computer-dial up networking, I removed the connection icon. Rebooted, put modem installation disk in cdrom, clicked start-run-browse, the icons were there (About 6) one was drivers, I clicked that, then a box came up SETUP, clicked that, then followed prompts. Finally, I got "Modem installed" Then, created a new dial-up in my computer. clicked connect, heard dialling, then got "Verifying user name and password", then "Logging onto network" Waited, waited, waited, 3 minutes, so closed. Went into my computer, dial-up network, right clicked the connection icon. A box comes up, select properties, if there is a tick in box which says,log onto network, untick it. Tried connecting again, verifying user name and password, SUCCESS!!! problem solved, now works great. Hope you have the same result kd5. Also, I hope that a few things I have mentioned will be of some benefit. Good luck, Maldwyn, aka (Taffy)
