W2K STOP error/problems
Posted on 2003-11-11
I have a problem with Windows 2000. Ive installed an old ISA sound card
At first Win2k,didnt find hardisk-"no boot device found"
Changed the jumper settings again and eventually got the PC to boot and I installed the sound card drivers,but no sound would play
After re-booting,I then encounted a STOP error.
I then re-booted in safe mode after trying last good config and manged to boot up and remove the drivers and I removed the sound card
But after this Ive had nothing but problems,W2K is running alot slower and in the task Manager Windows Processor interuppt is almost always at a 100%
The PC is a P2 266 mhz with 256 meg ram.
Is there no option but to re-install W2k. Also can you create an emergency repair disk in setup?
Doesnt W2K like ISA cards,am I better getting a PC card and letting that auto assign an IRQ?
