Your problem isn't your hardware--it's your operating system!!
What are you using? Windows 3.1? I've been using Windows NT
and Windows95 and I've had little to no problem. And I don't
even have a Pentium! I seriously think you need to consider moving
up to a better O/S, or checking out your configuration settings if
you are already using NT.
