I am in the process of installing win2000 and an upgrade statment came up saying my Cirrus modem and Creative lab accessories may not be compatible, I intalled the new drivers required and the same statment came up, what should I do before actually intalling the whole version of win2000 if this hardware may not be compatible.

Try to get the newest version on the web. Go to your vendor and download the new 2000 driver.

Don't try to install a NT4 or 98 driver, That wont work, trust me. I tryed to do that resulting in a lot of "Blue Screens". Did NT4 have "Blue screens" ?? I suppose so, but they wore never used.

So if you want a lot of STOP erros the use the wrong drivers !

Best of luck !

If you want your cards to work then you have to get the 2K drivers for the cards. If it doesnt excicts drivers for win2Kit wont work. Check if the cards are win2K compliant if they arent they probebly wouldn´t work.

Win9x,NT drivers could work but it´s much better to get a Win2K driver. Cause win9x, NT drivers might hang your computer.

The best way is to try on another computer with your cards (so you dont crash your computer).

I was close to making this answer good, but I already tried updating with the correct drivers and I still had the same message, I was wondering if I got another hard drive and partition them and install win2000 on the other HD would that make a difference.
