After having to format and re-install XP (my fault and not the computer or anything else) have got most things running ok but have 2 minor problems. When scrolling, use Firefox browser, the screen looks sort of wavy which it certainly never used to. The other one is keyboard is set up American way by look of it and I can't remember how to re-configure it. Thanks for any help.
Bukkaz,I have never used firefox so I can't help you there but your keyboard language configuration can be adjusted by going to control panel,date time and regional and language setting,go to regional and language setting and there you willl be able to do the necessary adjustments. Hope this helps.
And you did not take enough notice of the dialogue boxes that were presented to you during the installation. :¬) When the first set of dialogue boxes presented on the setup (Of winxp) there are FOUR actions to carry out to get the regional settings for keyboard and currency etc. set to your location. This is where you can dump the US keyboard settings too. Then, at the end when your OS has been successfully run, you can close down the language bar forever.
As usual come on here after tearing my hair out after having to re-install and reformat a few times, because of my own stupidity and mind going a blank and some helpful people take the time out to quickly resolve problems. One of the best sites on the web. Thanks everybody,
BTW, The 'Sort of wave' you described is not in actuality a 'wave'. it is the result of the Windows generic display driver producing a 'delay' when re-drawing the screen data. This is fixed by using the correct drivers for your graphics adaptor.
