I just bought a packard bell pc model no:1404 3 gig 256 mem, although the sis gfx card takes 64 so im left with 192 meg of ram, is that paltry or what!
What keeps on happing is that i keep getting messages popping up saying "ccapp" is ending then i get one saying hpz 1301(printer stuff) is ending task, then the pc tries to close and sticks on the shutdown screen , were upon the usb mouse stops working!
Ive reinstalled the os thru using the supplied restore disk , 3 times , 4 if you count the first pc which i took back with exactly the same issues!
Im using tiscali broadband with a usb adsl modem!
I went into the event veiwer and looking on system the following errors were reported
1, The system restore filter encountererd an error 0x00000d
2, Remote control management has encountererd an error
3, adildr.sys( failed to start!
also a file called click me click me which is a packard bell prog, is listed their!
Pc is very slow, nothing is installed at all except what was on the restore disk!
a wierd thing that happend is that i tried to print off the internet and it printed a inch or two and then stopped, i have turned the pc on and off many times since and nothing and then today i turned it on and it printed the web page from 4 days ago?
I have the impression that the problems are not exactly reclining prostrate at PB's door as you had the same issues with PC#1 and more likely incorrectly installed software. Dump Norton for it is dire, run click here, run Regseeker....click here , delete all they find and also download and scan with click here
I would also give the printer the once over as well.
