Here is what I have for the computer (or is it a Terminal) I was given for Genealogy Research: A Drive is Floppy disk C Drive is 7 gigabytes D Drive is a Yamaha CRW3200E E Drive is a regular CD-ROM Operating system(s): I was told that it had Windows NT to which was added, Windows 2000 Professional Ed. SP$, or it is totally the latter. The directory for the OS on C drive lists only WINNTcomponents, besides the Program subdirectory, and etc. when I try to use the other 3 drives to read(all 3 of them), copy(ie. the E Drive and D Drive) I get a message that'this disk is not formatted. do you want to format it?) oor the message "there is not disk in the drive. But the D And E Drive will operate okay when I put a program installation disk in them. and a commercially produced Music CD. when it boots up, it shows the C Drive as primary master, the D Drive as Secondary master, and the E Drive as Secondary Salve, and the Floppy Drive. but when i go into Setup and look at the BIOS, it lists: the C Drive as primary master none for Primary Slave None for Secondary Master None for Secondary Slave. It has 2 COM Ports according to Device manager. there is a LAN Modem installed in one of the PCI slots, I think, and there is a US robotics Modem Card in the PCI slot below the LAN Card. I tried to link up to the Net with my ISP instructions and I got the message that the modem was either malfunctioning, damaged or in use by something else(what the something else is I don't know). So I got a new modem, uninstalled the US Robotics modem and for some unknown reason, Windows installed ithe new modem not once, but twice(it ran through the found new device sequence, told me to reboot, and when i rebooted, it wanted to run through the found New hardward Sequence again.). When I dialed up my ISP connection, the computer froze up. At this point, I am wondering if it needs a 'Shrink" or a PC mechanic trained in Computer Psychiatry. I am on limited financial resources,living on disability. i know eough about computers to follow directions when given to resolve a problem. this computer or whatever it is, would enable me to keep all my Genealogy Research separate from what I have on my main computer which was also given to me, and which works great. I would very much appreciate any advice ,asistance you experts out there can give me.
