  1. Anyone still using these? I recently got an used Eten Glofiish x500+ from a friend. Now i find myself messing with this little gadget more than using my PC
  2. Try GPass, UltraSurf or some of the other solutions listed here Trackerless torrents would be cool thou...
  3. Distributed Link Tracking Client service running ?
  4. Or try other driver versions, might be a bug.
  5. Try what happens if you disable the automatic PNP monitor detection in the advanced dialog of the display properties. HTH
  6. To save yourself some time, first delete the C:\Windows\ttfCache file and restart. Then, if it doesn't fix the buttons, proceed as jaclaz said. btw. sometimes just changing the appearance scheme helps, you could try switching to a scheme with different caption buttons size. HTH
  7. Well, thanks for the report.. i needed just this part though: The bold codes (vendor and device IDs) identify this device as Allegro.comm ES1988 Allegro audio + ES56CVM-PI modem. Open this page and get the Win98SE driver for it (it's the first device in the PCI Audio/Modem Combo Device group).Or you could try this direct link to the driver. Unzip it somewhere. Next, check if in Add/Remove Programs applet there are entries containing ESS, Allegro, sp15773 or 211680 in their names (the sound driver you currently have installed) and uninstall them. Reboot in safe mode. Open the Device manager and remove any leftovers from the sound/modem drivers. Search for *.INF files in the C:\Windows\INF folder containing VEN_125D&DEV_198, delete(or move to a folder not in your %PATH% variable) the found files if any. Reboot in normal mode. Now Windows should find new devices and ask for a driver. Just cancel the dialog. Open the folder where you extracted the driver and install it (start the Setup.exe file and follow the instructions there), it'll probably ask to restart, so do it. Do NOT remove new ESS entries from Config.sys and Autoexec.bat if anything got added there by the driver. On the next Windows startup the sound should work. HTH P.S. Just FYI, here's the release note i found in the Compaq driver on this page : #COMPAQ SOFTWARE RELEASE NOTES: ; REVISION 1.64.00 ; ; COMPAQ CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY ; This document and the information it contains is the private ; intellectual property of the Compaq Computer Corporation. ; ; #*RELEASE NOTE PREPARED BY: Greg Young Program Manager Compaq Computer Corporation 281-514-8406 Office Gyoung@compaq.com #*UPDATED: 08/24/00 #*DESCRIPTIVE NAME: ESS Allegro WDM #SHORT DESCRIPTION: Certified ESS Allegro WDM WHQL #UPDATED RELEASE NOTE ONLY (yes/no) no #*BTO/CTO PART NUMBER: 211680-00A-006 #MEDIA/ASSEMBLY PART NUMBER: n/a #*LAST PMR INFORMATION: n/a #Last PMR version: (ex. 1.00 B Pass 3) n/a #PMR date: (ex. 04/09/97) n/a #What Cycle was this deliverable PMR'ed: (ex. 1C99) n/a #Does the Revision letter need to be changed (up from last PMR)?

  8. About PCI slots... you have to open your PC and look inside (some programs might show it, but that's never reliable) VGA - most video cards need an IRQ in order to work optimal/properly. Same with USB. But try to set the VGA to IRQ 10 in BIOS, or if not possible, exchange the VGA and USB IRQs. I usually see VGA cards on IRQ 10 or 11, so i guess it's somewhat semi-standard. Besides, it's better to share USB IRQ with COM ports which are usually sitting on IRQ 3&4 (both USB and COM are serial I/O interfaces) instead of with other kind of hardware. DOS config programs - if you've downloaded the NIC drivers from http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?...p;sec=0#drivers (i posted this link before, have you missed it ?), then you should have the DOS program for the card (i think it was named DIAG.EXE). Write down the path to it, then reboot in DOS mode (restart, F8 before loading Win), type "CD \dlink\dos" (replace "\dlink'dos" with the path you wrote), type DIAG to start the program. As i can't test the program without the proper hardware, i can't tell you what exactly to do there. See what happens when you run it, and if you can't find an IRQ/config related option in there, post the parameters/menu options available within the program. Note that usually you need to power-cycle the PC if you change the settings with such programs. I can't tell you if there is a similar program for the sound card in it's driver package (i don't even know its exact model... you've never posted that Aida info i requested before, heh). Just examine the programs and docs within the package for any clue. MSGSRV32 behavior highly depends on the hardware & drivers installed. If you've forced it to close while installing a driver, the instalation might not be complete. P.S. do you play DOS games? Check if sound works in any of these under pure DOS (not in a DOS window) HTH
  9. Hey RS, the problem is that most of the IRQs say they can't be changed.Also , in checking every one of them, there seems to be no conflicts listed. Use the DOS programs included with the drivers, NOT Device manager. MSGSRV32 problems ?! When did that started, lol ? Probably problem with some device (ESS sound ?) Tell me, which devices are installed as PCI cards (not built-in on the mobo)? Do you have free PCI slots currently? I doubt it that the sound device itself requests this IRQ, i think it's the BIOS or the chipset forcing it to use IRQ5. My system does it too, i've a TV tuner, onboard USB and the IEEE1394 part of my Audigy 2 sound all on IRQ5 (at least the sound subsystem is on IRQ3),this with the COM ports disabled. If i enable the serial ports, the whole group moves to another IRQ. HTH
  10. OK, in summary: Try to change the IRQ using any additional programs included with the drivers for the sound and network card. Try to move the cards to other PCI slots. Don't bother with the BIOS setup, since it affects all these devices at once. HTH
  11. You can get the DLLs in DOS from Win98 install cabfiles using the EXTRACT.EXE program included.
  12. Have you tried the DIAG.EXE program from the D-Link driver package as i told you before? It may have an option to change the IRQ used by your NIC. The drivers for your sound card may include a similar program or optional parameter, can't check this myself though. And last, try what happens if you configure the LPT port to use IRQ 5, it might push some of the other devices to a different IRQ. HTH P.S. you may want to re-read this thread, i already told you all this
  13. Already using NTFS for Win98, all i'd like to have is a way to de/compress files (some Win9x variant of compact.exe from XP would do) and to create/delete hardlinks. This on data partitions of course, no need to use NTFS on the C: drive.
  14. System info still pending... What happened, all fine?
  15. Ahem, about the floppy: Is the floppy controler still disabled? If so, re-enable it.Does the floppy attempt to work when you try to boot from it or open the drive in Explorer/DOS (i.e. floppy light flashing, mechanical noises, spins the diskette) or it remains dead? Could be a cabling problem. Did it ever worked in the past? About the sound, are the ESS-related lines in config.sys and autoexec.bat currently enabled? If not, restore these lines and check the sound in Multimedia control panel applet again. Also, would you start Aida32, open the Information menu > Debug submenu > Devices Dump, copy the contents and post it here. Should help to identify the hardware.
