I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

icemoney,
Most of the programs are written in such a way that they are system specific. Even the Norton Antivirus and other such programs are written seperately for Win 9X ver and Win NT based OSes. So try to search for any info at the games's sites you want to play and see if they provide any help.

Hope this helps...

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?

Greetings

Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

Cheers

I checked the windows website and it showed that Windows 2000 Professional is upgradeable to Windows XP Professional, as I am using a work laptop I was wandering does that mean if I were to upgrade to XP then all the previous settings, e.g. the log on profiles, will be maintained and there will be a seamless transition?

Hi All

Am I right in thinking that they are both pretty similar except that server has support for multiple processors and extra network related tools and facilities. The reason I ask is that if a piece of software works on Windows 2000 server, is it extremely likely that it will work on Windows 2000 professional too? As a bit of background information: I work for a small company which supplies temperature monitoring equipment which needs to be networked. I've been told that it has been tested on Windows 2000 server but not on Window 2000 professional.

Thanks
 

A:Windows 2000 professional and Windows 2000 server: same?

Yes, the OS are pretty much the same. The server edition supports more than 10 simultaneous connections (for file and print sharing) and supports network stuff as you said. But those differences could potentially break an application depending on what it does and how it interacts with the OS.

Can Windows 95 handle installing Windows 2000 Office Professional without upgrading?
 

A:windows 2000 professional

it should according to <u>the Microsoft site</u>
-check the RAM requirements tho, pretty hefty in spots for a typical W95 system
- i ran Off2000 w/ W95 with 64Mb - briefly before moving to W98 and it was the usual resource hog - depends on how many apps you have running on the PC at one time

probably get a decent price on it these days as its the XP version that's being flogged now

Am currently running Win98 on two computers wich I plan to network via a Netgear RT314 router. I have been reluctant to install Win 2000 -- understand there are some "can't go back" characteristics with Win 2000. Is Win 2000 Prof worth it, or should I stay with Win98? If you recommend going w/ Win2000, what precautions should be taken?

Any problem with installing the router on Win 2000?

Thanx
 

A:Windows 2000 professional

Win2K ROCKS!

But, you need to make sure you have enough ram to run it.

The best way to install Win2K is on a clean. freshly formatted hard drive.

I had it running quite nicely for many months. I just recently upgraded to WinXP Pro.

2000 works beautifully with a router. I have a home network and had no problems at all.

It is best to have 256 MB ram or better for smooth operation and stability.

Good Luck!

alright heres my dilemma....
I am trying to install windows 2000 onto my hard drive(brand-new, 40GB)
I want two partitions (C: and D: drives)
I want 10 GB on C: where windows is to be installed and 30GB on D:
I have set up the partitions as such.
I then installed windows
Then it says that d: is unformatted so i tried to format it through windows.
I soon after found with a little help from the web you cant format more than 2 GB worth of space
since i have already installed windows on c: is there anyway to format d: without having to do a full reinstall? If i have to do a full reinstall I'm still not sure that i know how to format both partitions. Maybe I'm just missing something I don't Know?
Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you for your Time
 

A:windows 2000 professional

After installing Window on C Drive, you can use Disk Management Utility from Window to format your D drive.

You only can format up to 2GB if you used FAT16 File System. In your case, I don't think there is any problem for you to format the 30GB on drive D

Hello,

I'm trying to setup a 'Broadband Modem' on a Windows 2000 Professional machine in order to use a friend's DSL service which will be switched on in a few days.

The service provider (Alice DSL, www.alice-dsl.de (German)) had sent her a 'broadband modem' called 'Turbolink IAD' from Sphairon Access Systems. An installation CD was provided but it will only install on a German version of Windows - this version is English. The 'modem' is connected via Ethernet to the PC and via a standard phone cable to the phone point.

I understand that what I need to do is set up a network connection using 'Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet'. I've been shown how to do this on Windows XP:

go to Control Panel
Network Connections
Create a new connection
Connect to the internet
Set up my connection manually
Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and a password
Enter an ISP name (eg. Alice DSL)
Enter User Name, Password, Confirm Password

Check
Properties>Networking on resulting connection should show
"Point to Point over Ethernet (PPPoE)"

But can this be done on Windows 2000? (if so, I've not been able to figure out how). Is this PPPoE standard on Win2000 or does in need a separate install from the Windows CD and, if so, how do I do that?

Is there some other way of setting this up?

Any assistance appreciated.

Regards

John

I have following drives spread over two harddisks
c: ntfs
d:, e:, f:. g: All fat32

I installed windows xp professional over it wile selecting only drive C: and that too in upgrade mode.

After installation of windowx xp, , All my drives c,d,e,f,g are showing only the folders and no file is being shown except in few folders a few files are shown.
I have very important data in it, please suggest how to recover the data.

All the drives are showing lot of wpty spaces but I feel the data is still there only thing is that it is not being recognised by windows xp..

Thanks ...Apollo

My first question is, what was the size of the hard drive, and did you install Windows XP with SP1 or higher? If the drive was over 128GB, and XP was without any SP, you'll probably see garbage for anything past the 128GB mark.

Also, what does disk management say? (start, run, diskmgmt.msc)

I'd probably try a hardware diagnostic utility first to rule out any physical malfunction.

After that, I'd probably try testdisk

before you make any changes make sure what it reports is consistent with what you know about the drive (size should match, you should be able to browse your files)

Ok guys, here is the prob....New machine AMD xp 1700, 380 megs of ram, quantum fireball 20 gig HD. Loaded win 2000 professional, no probs during install. Rebooted machine after loading drivers for bios, sound, ect. Ran fine for 2 hours. Took machine down and rebooted now windows won't start. Starts to load then gives me a physical memory dump error. Same thing trying to load last good config. Wiped drive clean and re-installed just win 2000....no drivers. Ran fine for about 45 mins then same thing. Anyone have any idea why? Could this be a HD error as this HD is a reconditioned drive or is their something worse wrong. Help please....this one is driving me nuts. Thanks.

Hi,

I have a question about windows 2000 professional hibernation. when ever i do a hibernate i heard it stores all the data from the ram to the hard drive, and i would lie to know if windows automatically deletes the data next reboot or if it stores it in a folder on the hard drive. If it stores it on the hard drive I would like to know if i could delete it to gain hard drive space, thanks much.

Put in your WIN ME disc, restart computer. Right after POST, when you hear the beeps, hit DEL. This will take you into your system Bios. Find the line that says Boot Sequence. Hit Enter. Change CD-ROM to be first, this is usually done by hitting the - and + keys. Hit the F10 key to save changes and exit. Your computer will restart again, this time it should go into the Windows ME setup screen. Follow the steps to format your hard drive and install Windows.

Your BIOS keys may be different, but the above way of getting into the system BIOS is the most common. Post back if that doesnt work out for you.

At work my computer has windows XP Professional on it and Microsoft Outlook 2000. I can receive emails all day but can only send emails a few hours a day. I have read everything on your site and none of it fits my problem. I turned off our email scanning software, I have tried resetting up my mail account. Our computer tech keeps saying I'm downloading things to my computer but I havent been and he cant show me what I downloaded either. We use Register.com for email and they just say Outlook 2000 is outdated but it worked fine up until about 2 weeks ago. I thought it was an update so I restored my computer to a date where it sent emails. That didnt work either. I repeat I can receive emails 24/7 I can send email only a few hours every day, it works then it doesnt. It doesnt give me any error message. Can you help????

Presently I have windows 98 SE on my system and wish to upgrade to windows 2000 professional.

whenever I try to install win 2k the installation goes through the windows compatability offline search, gives the message "storage adapter bridge module is missing" and then loads some software from the CD, gives the message that "windows 2000 is starting" and then locks up.

Has anyone else had this problem and how did you resolve it?

A:installing windows 2000 professional

You can try it again and before it locks up press the shift as well as f10 keys. This should bring up a command prompt. You should be able to view the " setuplog.txt " file to see exactly what it is..It appears like unsupported hardware..

Please help!
I have an HP desktop that I (stupidly) installed a demo version of MS Windows 2000 Professional. Ever since, I cannot access ANY of the applications (other than MS Office) that I had installed on my pc. Before I installed the demo, I was using Windows 98. I can live w/out having any of the applications, the main problem is that now, I cannot connect to the internet

For some reason, ever since I installed the demo, when I try to connect to the internet, no modem is found. Before installing this I had NO problem connecting to the internet.

Is there ANY way to fix this? Can I either: go back to the previous operating system that I was using, or if I purchase the complete MS Windows 2000 Professional software and install, I should be able to access my modem again?

Please help!
 

A:MS Windows 2000 Professional Problem!

If you have the Win98 recovery/reinstallation disk I would go to the hard drive manufacturers website and download their low level format (zero fill) utility, zero fill the drive and re-install 98. If you don't have the disks then there is probably no possibility of acquiring disks for a system that old from HP.
