  1. Are you getting the Partition selection screen?
  2. FREE! Try Gadwin PrintScreen Software. http://www.gadwin.com/printscreen/
  3. Just did it on my Laptop running windows 98SE as well. Good tip and thanks for the newsletter...
  4. Oh Boy... that didn't work well at all... For some reason, the operating system can't be found now. I guess it is back to square one and re-install the OS, then all the drivers again. Oh well, life can be like that some times... Thanks to everyone for the help. * editted typo *
  5. Y A H O O !!! The Sound Driver works... That was it. Thanks RAH. And now I am going to try to install the Cable Modem drivers again. I will let you know how it goes... :beer:
  6. Downloaded. Thanks. I will post here later to let you know how it went.
  7. I have a USB connected cable modem that I have tried several times to configure from disk but the laptop will not find the modem. The USB should be okay because it finds the external zip drive, but not the Cable modem. It is late here and I am too tired to attempt it right now, but I will try again in the AM and report the exact wording of the error I receive when I have it on the screen.
  8. Well, I guess the term HUB is situational. This is an older Laptop. There is only one USB connection and the "root hub" is internal.
  9. You might be onto something there. There is no sound driver listed. USB controllers and root hub are listed. A portion of the everest report is here: [ Network adapters / Dial-Up Adapter ] Device Properties: Driver Description Dial-Up Adapter Driver Date 4/23/99 Driver Provider Microsoft INF File NETPPP.INF Hardware ID *PNP8387 PnP Device RNA Point-to-point Protocol Driver [ Network adapters / Dial-Up Adapter #2 (VPN Support) ] Device Properties: Driver Description Dial-Up Adapter Driver Date 4/23/99 Driver Provider Microsoft INF File NETPPP.INF Hardware ID *PNP8387 PnP Device RNA Point-to-point Protocol Driver [ Network adapters / Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter ] Device Properties: Driver Description Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter Driver Date 4/23/99 Driver Provider Microsoft INF File NETPPTP.INF Hardware ID *PNP8386 [ Other devices / Unknown Device ] Device Properties: Driver Description Unknown Device Hardware ID BIOS\*CRX0002, *CRX0002 Device Resources: DMA 00 DMA 00 IRQ 00 Port 0220-022F Port 0330-0331 Port 0388-038B If you need more info, let me know...
  10. Nope... Can't access the pit test... No Internet connection at all on the Laptop. I do have a copy a report from "everest.exe" , a utility which is supposed to analyze the components of the system, but it is a pretty large output for posting here. It shows everything this is on the machine. It lists the "unknown device", but there are no helpful bits of info which I can use to determine the problem. I don't understand the bulk of what it is telling me anyway. Not a techy - type. If it would help, I could submit it via email by transferring it to this machine I am currently on??? Thanks for looking at this problem for me.
  11. I saved my drivers then reformatted the Hard Drive on a Compaq Presario 1230 laptop. Then did a full re-install of Windows 98. As it turns out, the drivers could not be re-installed. I have managed to get them back for the modem, video display, USB port and drives, but there is still one "unknown device". The most noticeable fault is the lack of an internet connection through the USB hub. I connect via a Cable Modem to the USB. I think the settings are okay on the Internet connection ( LAN, automatic detect ). A re-install of the modem drivers fails,too. I have the disk with the drivers from the Manufacturer of the cable modem, but this "unknown device" would most likely be the culprit. What information do you need to assist in diagnosing this situation? I will be able to transfer the information through a second machine as screen prints if neccesary. Thanks in advance.
