Had big crash & reformatted disk, etc.
Possible crash cause was extra memory now removed back to basics.
Sys runs basically ok but when I try & use my plotter via parallel port I get "win 16 subsystem unstable 16 bit task.." as well my dvd-rw will read dvd's ok but see the DVD-rw as cd-rw when I try to write, Drive problem suspect and tried to use e-machine disk to fix but no luck ( original partition was removed during fixing drive) and xp home edition reinstall ok from emachine disk.
suggestions re fix ??
