I'm impressed you got XP running on that K6. XP is really next generation and systems will really need to be built to accomodate it rather then vise-versa. My guess is that your issue has to deal with the "C" word - compatibility. If everything else is working ok, get a radio.

I have the same problem on my Compaq Presario 7478 with the ESS Allegro sound drivers/chip. I have not found a fix for that yet, and it is REALLY annoying.

I run WinXP with no noticible slowdown on a 533MHz K6/2, 256MB RAM Desktop and a 333MHz K6/2, 160MB RAM Laptop.

On the Desktop, i have had no problems with drivers, and the comptuer as a whole (Compaq Presario 7478) is listed on Microsoft's HCL for WinXP. The laptop's (Compaq Presario 1260) internal 56K modem does not work because of driver/BIOS conflicts, but i just swiped a 56K PCMCIA modem from work and that one runs fine.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
