Question 39

Submitted by ?

I have a Chinese version of Windows ME, and recently I try to install Window 2000 (dual boot). But when I opened the CD, I get the error about c:\windows\UpgDlls\w95upg.dll\WIN9XUPG\W95UPG.DLL

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

WinME cannot be UPGRADED to Win2000. It does not consider Win2000 as a newer version of the OS. I guess you need to read a little more about dual booting the two.

Question 38

Submitted by James

Hello; I am and have been running Windows ME for probably a year now. I JUST RECENTLY HAD TO FORMAT and reinstall Win 98 then, reinstall Windows ME over that.  Ever since the reinstall my Quick Launch Tool Bar instead of being just to the right of the START button, is to the right of the sliding divider. Can you tell me how to get it back just to the right of the start button as it is supposed to be?  Many thanks for your help

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

It can be just dragged by dragging its left border.

 
 

Question 37

Submitted by Richard

I recently bought an ABIT VP6 motherboard with dual 933MHz processors and 2GB PC133 SDRAM. I've tried installing Windows 2000 Server -- I have 3 CD's with this, and also one with Advanced Server. All exhibit the same problem: while copying files during the early stages of installation (the main file copy operation during which the majority of files are copied from CD to hard drive), the computer will occasionally blue screen -- but most of the time it does not. However, it ALWAYS fails anyway -- several files will fail to copy. It says they failed, and I can continue.  Later, during the next phase, it complains that it cannot read files that it DID successfully copy. On each of the install CDs, the files that fail are generally consistent -- that is, one particular CD has a set of files that fail, another CD (of the same software) has a slightly different set that fails (with much in common), etc.  CD problem? Well, I tried two brand new DVD players and a CD player, and all fail the same way.  Media problem?  I took the media to another computer and successfully read every file on it. Sounds like a hard drive problem?  Well, I have 5 brand new IDE drives and have tried several.  Tried different IDE slot on motherboard; tried 3 different sets of IDE cables (ATA100 and standard 40-pin).  The system has nothing but motherboard, memory, 2 CPUs and video. The guy I bought it from then took the machine to a techie, who managed to install Win2K server on it.  He won't say how, and says "it's a secret".  They're now claiming all Win2K installations are like that (which I know is false as I've installed Win2K server, but not on multi-processor machines before).  They say the techie won't say how he did it, but did warn I'd probably still have the problem if I re-install. I don't want this machine in this condition.  The question: IS there some trick in some multi-processor systems for getting the install to work?  Is this an ABIT VP6 thing?  Right now, my plan is to go over there, and re-install Win2K server to a different hard drive.  If it has the same problem, then I am going to have to fight them over their 20% restocking fee, as clearly there IS a problem.  But I want to go armed with some facts. Any ideas?

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

Don't know about Dual processors here but I had an IDENTICAL problem on my single processor P3 1 GHz machine. Turned out it was a faulty RAM chip.

Question 26

Submitted by ?

Dear AskAW, A friend of mine just bought a brand new pc for his daughter (a high school need), and since I'm fairly competent with pc's, I offered to set it all up for him (which saves him some money). The hard disc is partitioned and formatted nicely, no probs there. When I run setup from the WinMe cd (a license he bought with the pc), I keep getting the Su0325 error at around 10% of the installation. Now MS's site says this failure to copy files is caused by dirty of damaged cd. Well, I tried to install WinMe from his cd on my good ol' trial pc, and it did so without a glitch. I've also tried it the other way around: I tried to install my licenses of Win2k and Win98 on his new pc, and again they fail to install. Win2k with a similar message (failure to copy files during install), Win98 crashes immediately when entering the mouse driven setup area ("application error: w98setup caused a general fault"). So of course I've tried the next logical step: copy the Win98/9x dirs to the hard disc, and install from there. Copying the files goes all fine, setup quits with identical errors. Please help me out here, I'm losing my mind :-)

Question 24

Submitted by John

To whom it may concern, First of all I wanted to say that I'm really impressed at you're website. I'm really fund of visiting surfing through your site. I wrote to you guys because i was just wondering if you can give me the step-by-step process of putting password to my PC like for example having my computer ask for the user's user name then following the password to finally have access to my PC. By the way I am using Windows ME as my platform just to let you know. I tried doing it myself by going to control pannel then clicking on the password icon but whenever i put a user name and my password, by the time i try to start up my PC eventhough i dont put my password it will just start up right away just by clicking on the cancel button. I really appreciate if you would give me the right way of setting it up so i can only, myself only can use my own computer. Thank you for sparing time upon reading my letter and i hope i would be receiving the response from you guys soon. Respectfully Yours

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

Unfortunately only the WinNT and Win 2000 systems are fussy about this and will not let you in by pressing the cancel button. In Win98 and WinME security is not so tight. There was a registry hack though where Win9x/ME would shut down if the password was wrong or cancelled. But by default the OS will let you in by clicking cancel.

I recently re-installed Windows98 Second Edition on my laptop. Now, however, when I select Shut Down from the START menu, STANDBY is no longer an option. I can only shut down the computer or restart it. How do i put standby back on the menu? Thank you.

Was the Option there previously. The hardware needs to be ACPI compliant. You might need to install your hardware drivers correctly.

It should detect most hardware itself but if you have the driver disk for the new system ... that would be ideal.
 
 

Question 5

Submitted by Domenico

Hi, I have recently moved from Italy to the UK. In Italy i was using an Italian version of Windows Millenium, but on moving to the UK I decided to upgrade to Windows 2000 professional (English Version). I have encountered a problem. A message appears saying "direct X cannot be installed on the system in use". I am unsure on how to solve this problem or how to proceed. Hope you can help.

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake
I guess it is directx 8 you are trying to set up. The installers for this are different for the Millenium and the 2000 systems.

Question 36

Submitted by Bryan

Good morning, I belong to a small company in which we have only 5 computers, but unfortunaletly we upgrade one computer at a time. Now the newest computer is running 2000 professional and our oldest is running windows 95. All computers except the 95 can network using a LAN, but the 95 can use the network UNTIL the 2000professional logs in and sets up it's network connections, then it doesn't allow communitcation to the 95. I can't figure out how to get all computers on network at once. Please help me.

Solution 1 Answered by Mike Poole

I would reccomend you upgrade any machine that is NOT Windows 98 to at least Windows 98, Second Edition if possible. This will most likely solve your problem.

Solution 1 Answered by Mike Poole

Sounds like a drive controller problem to me.
Make all the ide drive controllers revert back to "normal" or non-ultra ata.
Or when the install asks if you need to install 3rd party drivers, say yes and put the floopy in for the ide controllers when it asks.

 


 

Question 6

Submitted by Mike

Hello, I'm hoping you can help me out and give me a HUGE favor to help me figure out how to fix something. I saved stuff on my C drive, (just saved different emails in a folder in my C drive) and somehow they lost there file type and will not open at all. I think I have to do something by going to "view" in windows explorer and maybe fix something as a file type but I'm not sure and don't have an idea how to do it. Could you PLEASE try to help me out. It would mean a lot. I know that the file type should be "PFC" because I saved some stuff from my "personal file cabinet" in AOL and the file type now under "preferences" just says "file." What I try to open up the files it says "not supported by AOL" when it always was. So I just need to know what I have to do to get it back to where it was originally, and if it's to go under "view" could you please give me detailed instructions how to do that. It would be such a HUGE favor...thank you very very much! thank you 

Solution 1 Answered by Mike Poole

Since I do not have or use AOL, my suggestion would be to re-install AOL and see if it resets the file type for you.

 
 

Question 53

Submitted by Stephen

Help! My daughter uses the internet to help with her homework. She inadvertently stumbled on a pornographic site, so I tried to invoke the Content Advisor settings under Internet Properties. Now every time we try to log on, we get a message saying "Please check your Content Advisor settings for missing information", and we are unable to logon to access any website. The only thing I can see that might cause this is, on the General tab under Settings, the box under user options which allows users to see sites with no rating is not ticked. If I tick this and apply it, I seem to be enabled to log on to the web again. However, this option does not seem to be saved, so once the PC is booted up again, we have the same problem again. The Contents Advisor does not also seem to retain the ratings settings once the PC is powered down (I'm guessing that there must be some sort of automated re-setting involved here). As you can imagine, this is intensely irritating, and means that, unless I am here to input my security password and make this change, no one can access the Internet.

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

Most content advisor problems (except forgotten passwords) are solved by deleting the ratings.pol file from your computer. When you reboot, Internet explorer will ask for the settings and this time the settings should remain this time.
See http://www.rsac.org/

What is the best way to install windows 98 over windows nt? When I try to install windows nt gives me an error. Is there a web site that can give me detailed instructions on this process? I am not computer savvy. Please help.

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

Why not Copy the Win98 setup files to hard disk while in Winnt. Then boot the system with a boot floppy and run the setup program from There. Of course this will not dual boot but Install win98 as a default OS. This is what you were trying right?

 
 

Question 49

Submitted by Manual

Hello! i've got a P3 1000 MHZ, 264 mb ram, 40 giga hard drive. I have installed an IEEE 1394 card and everything is working except i can't shut down my pc. it should shut down completely (with power) but it hang at the window "you may shut down your computer...". i can hear a click like it tries to switch off, but nothing happens and it hangs! when i remove the card it works again. i have windows ME. when i remove the card it works again. i updated drivers (directX 8.0 DV update, chipset (NOT BIOS - the windows drivers)), i tried with windows XP, i tried another pci slot, i tried another ieee 1394 card, i removed all cards except ieee 1349..... nothing works - it still hang at shutdown! do  you know about what i could do else??

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

I would suggest you read your motherboard manual and their website knowledge base to see if they have any issues with this card. And if they have any BIOS updates that address this issue. Does not seem like an operating system issue to me.

Question 46

Submitted by Alex

Dear sir, I really need some advice on my computer which is important to me. When I switch on my computer, everything is fine until just after I enter the password and windows starts. I hear the chime/tune that windows 95 makes as it starts then an error message comes up saying: "error, Explorer has performed an illegal operation and will shut down". After I do this I press the Windows button and the Run Program box comes up. I have tried to use RescueMe but this has not rectified the problem, nor has running through ScanDisk or SafeMode. Anything you could suggest? Would it be wise to re-install Windows? I would very much appreciate it if you could assist me.

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

This could be caused by some program starting up with windows. In the run dialog box type msconfig and see what programs are starting up with windows and disable all the unnecessary ones. Also I would suggest a virus scan. You can get one done for free online too.

 
 

Question 45

Submitted by Bill

I use multiple user profiles. At home, I have a screen that lists each of the users, you select one, type password & continue on to win98. At work, the login screen has just one user listed (the last one to login) and you have to KNOW what to type to login as another user. I really want a list of profile user names to appear on both machines. Do I have two different releases of win 98? Can I set up the work machines to display different users so novice users can login who might not know what user to select? I know they can select cancel and end up as default users. Thanks!

Solution 1 Answered by Mean Drake

Possibly one of the computers is using Win98 SE while the other is using the first release. Right click My Computer And Go to Properties. Here you will be able to see what Operating system is installed and the build number.

Hi I have windows ME and my BIOS does not have an otion to disable NumLock at boot. In Windows 98 I used to add the line numlock=off to my config.sys file and it worked but I cant do this in windows ME. any ideas I also tried editing HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Microsoft Input Devices and adding a Keyboard Key and a value NumLock=Off but that didn't work either. any suggestions?

Solution 1 Answered by Candy Baker

Here is something you can try:
Run regedit and find the key below.
Change the value of 'InitialKeyboardIndicators' to either '0' for off, or '2' for on.
Restart Windows for the change to take effect.
Note: This change will affect all users but value can also be changed on a user-by-user basis by modifying [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard] using the same values

Question 8

Submitted by Dave

I just installed Win2K and everything works fine except my DVD drive (Pioneer DVD-A02) doesn't show up anywhere after Win has loaded. My other drive, a Creative CD-RW 4224, shows up fine. When I run the Hardware Wizard and do the Add/Troubleshoot Device, Win says it's searching for new Plug & Play hardware, then it lists the Pioneer DVD drive (which functions fine thereafter) along with all my other hardware devices. Win NEVER starts up and recognizes the DVD drive automatically; the only way I can get it to recognize is by running the Hardware Wizard. Any suggestions on how I could get the drive to load properly with Win2K?? Thanks in advance!

Windows 2000 is used more for business than personal and multimedia purposes.  Put the pictures you would like in the following path: C:\WINNT\Web\Wallpaper, then in the Control Panel, Display, Background Properties you can set your own wallpaper.

 
 

Question 27

Submitted by Karl

Okay, I just bought a new computer with pre-installed version of WindowsME. Every few minutes it will freeze, but not completely. The whole computer will lock up (mouse et al.) for about 4 seconds, then everything will go back to normal. What's up with that?

Solution 1 Answered by Candy Baker

When you computer freezes, you need to do a shutdown and restart, the a thorough scan disk and disk defragmenter. You can use ScanDisk to check your hard disk for logical and physical errors. ScanDisk can then repair the damaged areas. When you reboot, windows will do a standard scan disk but you need to do a thorough one and read the report and the end. Go to Start Programs, Accessories to System Tools, and then clicking Disk Defragmenter. To change the Disk Defragmenter settings, click Settings. While your disk is being defragmented, you can use your computer for other tasks. However, your computer operates more slowly, and Disk Defragmenter takes longer to finish. To temporarily stop Disk Defragmenter so you can run other programs faster, click Pause. During defragmentation, Disk Defragmenter must restart each time other programs write to the disk. If Disk Defragmenter restarts too often, you may want to close other programs while defragmenting your disk.

Hi guys. Hope you can clue me in here. I have a compaq lte elite 486 notebook running win95. I am having some problems with sound. I can play wav files and sound scemes but I can't play sounds on media player(which I have recently upgraded), winamp, or realplayer. Here's the kicker, like I said, it will play sounds but when check in systems: Devices; it doesn't show a sound card! Also, It tells me that I have no mixer devices. I spoke with a com. tech and he told me it sounded like a software issue and then told me he couldn't help me with it because it's a 486. Please help.

Solution 1 Answered by Candy Baker

When you go to Settings, Control Panel, Sounds, open up the Icon.  Look and see if under Schemes, a Sound name listed.  You can click on each of the tasks and assign a .wav, or .mid file to each action.  It is fun.  Good luck.
