Well, my friends, I have come to the conclusion that the problems with my computer are far beyond me. It create problems faster than I can fix them. This morning it is now unable to read from a floppy drive, any of four floppies I tried.

Today's new messages:

205 memory failed configuration
206 memory conflict

So, I'm thinking by the end of this day, to box it up, put it on the closet shelf until I can either take it to someone with alot smarts than me OR just get another Socket 370 board and build a new one. I have learned some worth-knowing stuff from all of you, and I have, without a doubt learned: "Don't fix a system that works!

Thank you all so very much for hanging in with me. Now I'll take my seat and continue to learn and read and when I can help--make comments---upon this superb site. Happy Holidays!

Idle pinkies are the Devil's workshop!

You will probably have to purchase a new copy of Windows XP as I stated before.

XP Home:

XP Pro:

You either have an upgrade version of Windows XP or you have a restore CD which uses a back up image on one of the drives -- both of which do not allow you to reinstall the OS cleanly. Both of the products linked above will allow you to install the OS on a clean drive.
