    USB Ports Wont Work

    I just installed XP Pro and I can't get the two USB plugs on the front of the PC to work. The two on the back of the PC (built onto the mobo) work fine, but when I plug something into the ones on the front, nothing is detected and nothing happens. They were all working fine before I installed...

    Changing Drive Letters

    This was a reply I got from another group, and it worked fine... "What you need to do so go to Start and right-click My Computer. Choose Manage and then Disk Management. You can change your drive letters there."

    Changing Drive Letters

    I know this is a novice question but because I haven't done it in so long, I can't remember how. How do I change the drive letters in Windows XP? When I stepped up to the new OS, it recognized all my drives except my Zip so I had to reinstall it. Now, instead of my Zip being E, DVD being F...

    Unwanted Login Screen

    I had two different user profiles set up to use one of the PCs on my home ntwk, because I was trying to create separate inboxes for Outlook 2000. Since then, I deleted both profiles because they are no longer needed. However, everytime I start this PC, it goes to the same "select user to...

    Intra-Network Chatting?

    Anyone ever come across a scenario like this? I share a cable modem with two computers. Is there a way I can send non-internet, "Instant Message" type messages between the two PCs? ie, I'm on the upstairs PC, and I want a message to pop up on my wife's PC screen downstairs (something like...

    Outlook 2000

    Will setting up different user profiles/settings prevent me or my wife from accessing eachothers files? For example, if my wife downloads a file and places it on the desktop, will it be there when I logon under my username/profile? As I mentioned in my first post, we run a home-based...

    Outlook 2000

    Is there a way that 2 people (different email accounts) can use the email, calendar and other features of Outlook 2000 without it combining the data? My wife and I both have email through our cable modem provider, but when either of us starts Outlook, it attempts to download all email (from...
