Can you go to the ATI site, look for Radeon XP and get cat uninstaller, download and save it to a folder you create


https://support.ati....amp;folderID=27

Use search and click on the link for catalyst 5.7 and cat uninstaller is clickable for the download

Then download and save the Omega ATI 6.5 drivers from here, top link when you scroll to the download mirrors, 22MB

http://www.omegadriv...ti/win2k_xp.php

Save them to a folder you create

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm

Run cat uninstaller and reboot

Install the Omega drivers

Okay Keith,

All done. I did all you said. I guess the next thing might be to test it overnight again, huh? I do have another question, maybe it's for another forum in your site--I have noticed since I have had this problem the download speed is incredibly slow. The 22MB file was at a snail's pace--about 6.8kb (took a good 20 something minutes for 22megs)

Anyways, I thought maybe you might want to know that too. You have been so patient and helpful. I am sorry it took so long to follow these last steps--I am paranoid I might screw up.

Again, mahalo for all the help and I will await further instructions.

Got it done...thanks for the download.

I guess it's time to turn it off and let you know overnight, or are there any other procedures you want be to follow?

Does it download any quicker, or maybe stream a radio station?

I tried to listen to 92.9 davefm and it streamed at 52 kb/sec. It's been so long with all these problems that I guess I will keep trying (maybe I'll download a file that is similar to the omega drivers)

But I am so optimistic that it is better. Will keep you posted.

Hi Keith,

You are not gonna believe this. Now, it will not boot up. I get various errors for the ten times I tried to start it up. I wrote down all the errors in case you ned the info. I did not go into safe mode and do the prefetch and disc cleaner procedure in case you had other things in mind.

I am using my old laptop for now. I will wait for your response. Thanks.

Can you post the errors

See if you can get anywhere with this

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Start the System Restore Utility at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a Command Prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for the most recent system checkpoint created before the errors to restore from

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click 315222 to see a description of the Safe Mode Boot Options in Windows XP

I could not get into the restore via safe mode with command prompt. It gave me another IRQL error. So I resorted to the prefetch/disc clean up via safe mode. It started up okay, and here is the Everest items. I posted the entire log. I hope that is what you are looking for.

Thanks.

Hi HEENS...

Have you created the recovery cd set since purchasing your machine? HP allows you to create this set only once.

Have you tried booting the machine into Safe Mode?
