changing the way windows starts up?
MrStroker2 Mar-30-01 10:20 PM
Larry hopefully you can help with this?
(1) when my computer boots , during the boot up I get a message telling me that:"please enter set up menu to set clock ratio" then I can either choose f1 to skip or delete to enter bios?
(2) when I do get my Windows ME to load I'd like to know how to disable the screen "network user password screen" I dont use a network, ? or do I?
I use dsl external modem with a ethernet card.
Is that considered a network since I connect through a phone/dsl (qwest) connection.
(3)
I had windows 98Se with my current monitor
(mitsibushi diamond pro 91TXM/TFW9105)
I had the maxiumn resolution and color options;
BUT here when I go to the display/properties/settings optionalll I see that I have a choice for is 16 colors ans 640/480 pixels....unacceptable for my monitor/settings.

So....I go to Advanced/color/management/add
selection and my monitor is not in there to add?
How can I get the proper drivers/name, whatever I need to make my monitor function properly.

thanks in adavance....Mike

Mike, The clock ratio is probably the multiplier for the processor and probably needs to be set for the correct value. If I knew what motherboard (http://duxcw.com/digest/Fromshop/mb/det.htm) / computer make and model and CPU you had I could probably provide more specific advice.

Yes, you do have a network to the MODEM. See http://duxcw.com/faq/network/logdomain.htm for solving the login nuisance.

The display adapter determines the number of colors and resolution. Right-click the Windows Desktop, choose Properties, Settings, and see if you can change it there. If not, you may not have the correct driver installed for the adapter. Larry

I have the Clock issue resolved it was indeed the cpu multiplier they had it set to 3.0x and it is supposed to be set to 2.0/6.0.........so

The start up problem is also solved .I saw what you were saying only it was slightly different in windows me...I actually changed it from the networking logon menu.


Larry thanks for ...just being there to help novices like me.... thank you.....Mike
