chat server in WinXP
bernard delr Aug-12-02 11:37 PM
i re-format my drive and installed WinXP Pro i log on to the internet and went to my favorite site www.linktv.ph to chat. i waited for several minutes but it won't link to the chat server... thinking the problem was in XP, i tried to connect using Win98SE on a different PC and everything was a breeze... what seems to be the problem? are there special settings in XP? i also tried chat servers like Yehey.com but the same bad thing happened... pls. help me...

It might be your Internet Explorer privacy setting. Allow cookies for the web site in question. Larry

I don't have anymore suggestions except if it were me I wouldn't give-up and revert. I would start by e-mailing the site. Larry

Eh, maybe I do have a suggestion--a long shot. I just went to the site and it uses a java appellate. Java was not included with Windows XP like the other versions you have. A court dispute with Sunů You probably already have java installed if you surf the net much, but just in case you opted not to install it, try this: http://java.sun.com/getjava/download.html. Larry

I was about to mention Java also. The chat room you go to is most likely in java. Just download the latest 1.4.1 version and you should be fine. I am almost sure that is the problem.
