I run a Dell Dimension 4100. Operating System Windows ME. Windows ME has always been unstable and running it with IE. It was particularly unstable. On recommendation I loaded and used Netscape. It was more or less very stable. Error messages kept appearing which in effect was telling me that a number of dll files were corrupted. Reloading ME did not correct the problem Eventually I decided to be adventurous and using Partition Magic split my hard drive into two - using XP Pro as the operating system on drive “D” - the new drive. Eventually to delete the old drive “C” - this is still my intention.
I built up my new drive - loading newer programs including Netscape. I found my drive to be very stable and even IE 6 was good. For my email I was setting it up in Outlook Express.
I decided to just keep one Internet program and deleted Netscape.
My problems then started.
I kept getting error messages - cant find this cant find that etc etc. - to the extent that I reloaded XP Pro and lost my Internet connection. It is finding a different modem on both drives. MPD3880-W(B) PCI Modem on “C” and Dell DataFax modem on “D”. I did not check the modem settings on my first loading of XP Pro as it was working perfectly. I use btopenworld as my ISP. It dials and connects but will not open the page - cannot find page it keeps telling me.
I still have access to the Internet via my “C” drive.
Everything else on the drive is perfect - has anyone any suggestions to guide me to the Internet once again on my “D” drive?
