    I have a 1998 HP Pavillion. I use Windows 98.
    I just installed Bell Sympatico high speed internet connection.
    I am using the USB modem that Bell sent me. I installed the hardware and software correctly, and I'm able to connect and surf the net just fine. The problem is that when I try to disconnect, the disconnecting window appears but then it just hangs there, it freezes!! The tech support guy at sympatico told me to ask you guys for help.
    While the disconnecting page is hanging and I press ctrl, alt, delete, it tells me that 'winoldap' is not responding. If I end task I am then able to diconnect.
    The tech support guy said it could be the device adapter. Right now I have a Intel(R) 810 Chipset Graphics Driver PV1.1 version 2.
    the date of it is 07/14/1999. I was told that if I upgrade this it should fix my problem. Is this true and how can I upgrade it? What site do I go to, to get the upgrade?
    I checked the Intel site but there are so many things to upgrade I don't know which one I need.

    haven't put on of those for awhile, check this thread and see if it helps with your problem, might not, but the cavalry will be on the way. another method is to use the search function at the top of the forums page and look for "winoldap" seems others have had problems with this also.

    again welcome, have to send those guys at sympatico a thanks

    Hey Jimi,
    I have never run regedit??? So I'm not sure what I am being advise to look for. I know how to get to regedit but once I'm there I'm lost.

    Del,
    You know my situation a bit better then me, perhaps you can explain it to everyone else.

    I tried Del's solution. I went to the site he gave me and downloaded an upgrade. I tested it twice and ut seems to be working. I'll let you guys know if it fails on me again.
    Thanks for the Help!!!!

    That should fix it for you, but if you have any other problems with it, let us know.
    Have a great day.
