Good morning!  
Well, here we are again, another week. My weekend was OK. The weather sure was nice. I formatted and reloaded my laptop over the weekend. It was really messed up ever since I tried to install Windows 2000 on it and forgot to do it to a different directory from Windows 98. 2000 didn't like my HP laptop and my windows 98 was never quite the same. Now I've got lots of hard drive space again. :-)

I hope everyone has a good day today. Sure it's Monday, but that doesn't mean you can't have a good day!
Current Mood: hopefulhopeful

Morning Gary! I did very much a similar thing with Windows2000 Pro. I ended up formatting and loading Windows2000 from scratch. It's worked great ever since. It seems that Win2000 doesn't upgrade well. But does work fine as a fresh installation.

Have a good one!

What I found out about Windows 2000 and HP laptops is that HP does not support 2000 on my laptop. In fact, they don't support 2000 on much of anything, if it was not sold with the laptop in the beginning! Therefore, they don't have any drivers for 2000 and those laptops. My modem (an internal) was not detected and I couldn't find a driver for it. I run 2000 on my desktop at home and really like it.

Good Morning Gary. My day started out real cruddy, but God intervened and it has turned out to be a terrific day. Praise God for all of His goodness.

Glad you got your puter to working the way you want it. I messed around and downloaded AOL 7.0 last night and it appears to be doing the samething that 6.0 did, which was to really mess things up. I should know by tonight for sure. Right now the 7.0 is working fine but this morning the computer didn't want to work at all which is what 6.0 would do. Most of the time it didn't work at all but every once in a while it would work perfectly. Me thinks I need a new ISP.....LOL. Or better yet a cable modem.....LOL

I thought you were well on the way to a cable modem. Yeah, the main thing wrong with that AOL stuff is the name AOL. :-) I have tried them myself, but I don't think they give much value for the money they cost. Of course, I am spoiled living in a big metro area with lots of competion.

No, not yet. Have got to be to where someone can be here in the day time to get it all hooked up. May try to see about that next month. Janis is supposed to have a couple of extra days off during November that I don't have off. Maybe I can scheule something then for that cable modem.

I think you are right about the AOL, it's the AOL part causing all the trouble.....LOL
