I finished building my computer yesterday... it took me absolutely ages, and had loads of problems. I have finally got everything working, well kind of. I have XP Pro (legal copy) working on the computer now. I have 3 main problems.
My motherboard is the Dfi Lanparty UT Ultra D (rest of the spec should show below this message)
Firstly I cannot get any of the ports to become USB 2. they all work fine, but only as USB 1.0. I think i am missing a driver or something, but i am guessing windows update will prob fix it.
Secondly, my MAIN problem, is that i cant get the computer to connect to the LAN. We have a firewalled ADSL router in my house, which is attached to a gigabit switch. i am on my laptop at the moment, adn everythink is fine, all i do is plug in the ethernet cable, and everything gets done automatically. NOT the same with my new desktop PC. I have tried to install all kinds of things
thirdly, (which might be related to 2ndly.) i cant get XP firewall to turn off. i tell it to turn off, but it still shows as being on.
WHATS GOING ON!
