Something weird is happening to this machine. Running WinME for the last couple of days (already I hate it. Will be upgrading to Xp pro soon) without any real problems. Until today. Little background. I was running Win98 and Installed WinME on a second partition (I won't get into why, tis' a long, loooonnng story), setup all hardware, software, everything. So I basically cloned my 98 configuration to Me with some major cleanup in between. After I was relatively sure Me was running ok I formatted and merged the 98 partition. All with the use of Partition Magic 7.0 Pro. Worked like a charm. Until I rebooted. Me booted up but with no display adapter, no sound drivers, no cd rom, etc...... No problem. Reinstalled Me. Almost back to normal minus a few tweaks. Well, enough wasting your time, just thought it would make for an interesting story. My problem now is that whenever I access the Device Manger, wether it's right click my computer\properties\device manger... or ctrl panel\system\device manger... My modem dials up. It always dials up just fine, no error, no message. I have a crappy (cheep) usr win modem which there are no driver updates for and I have removed it and reinstalled all to no avail. So now I am pointing the finger at Windows. Just a minor annoyance to me and the rest of the world. However, as you can see, I have nothing better to do today then resolve a minor annoyance. Thanks for any help.
