Everyone:

I have an IBM/PS1 model# 2155-78C(SL-B). It has 32 MB memory, two hard
drives 253 MB (the original) and the other hard drive 2,555 MB. It has a 486SX2
chip, 50 MHz clock speed, 1,024 KB of video memory, 56K modem, Windows 3.11, and
MS DOS 6.22.

As you can tell I have upgraded it from its original configuration.Before my upgrades it had 4 MB Memory,one hard drive 253 MB,1024 KB of video memory, and 9K modem.

I selected [use 32-Bit Disk Access]checkbox. I entered control + alternate + delete to restart Windows. My problems then began. The computer froze.  I was able to get into Windows and I unselected [use 32-Bit Disk Access] checkbox.

My computer had plenty of problems . . . very few fonts, and colors (only had
gray scale), certain programs (database, spreadsheet, games, etc.) would not
start, date and time would not work, IBM's Configuration Utility screen would
not work, and so on.

I have been able to fix a lot of the problems but some big ones remain. The
computer freezes when accessing the Internet (I have AOL), the printer does not
work (HP DeskJet 540), there is no sound, and the CD ROM does not work.
Everything worked fine before my "D" day. I have attempted to reinstall the HP
printer driver, sound driver, and AOL. Nothing works.

What is my next move?

Sincerely,

Josť C.

IF YOU CAN FIND A WIN 95 OR 98 START UP DISK..START THE COMPUTER AND REFORMAT  or repartition THE DRIVE PREFERABLY WITH WIN 95 OR 98..WHICH WILL
RUN FINE ON 486 & 16MB OF MEMORY. I HAVE A COPY OF  WIN 95 UPGRADE I CAN LET YOU HAVE CHEAP.UPGRADING WIN 3x TO WIN 95.
BUT NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO THE COMPUTER WILL
BE SLOW. YOU NEED AT LEAST A 33K MODEM TO SURF THE INTERNET VERY WELL..BUT 56K ARE CHEAP. SO IS MEMORY IF YOU LOOK IN THE RIGHT PLACE..RESPOND TO mckaigs2002@yahoo.com
