    it is a desktop and no i did not add any new hardware or software....just normal use on the last time used and it shut down properly that nite. the next day would not go past that first screen that comes up when powered up. also i suppose i could do the battery thing but i am not very confident about going in to the back or opening up anything of which i am not familiar..i mean of course i know what a battery is and all but am not very familiar with the bios part of things..paranoid i suppose after killing a desktop in the past..thinking i could do things i couldnt. i was hoping that i could somehow make a boot up disk using my laptop somehow and using it on the desktop to make it at least start up inn safe mode..then i could have a better chance of making any changes...is that an option?

    I'm having the same problem on my Toshiba laptop that I bought in Jan 07. As soon as the boot is complete and I try to click on any of applications the screen freezes. I confused on what is causing the problem. I have not added any hardware or any net cards. Any one who can give me suggestions? I clean up my temp file. Thanks

Problem with Olympus AS-2400 PC Transcription Kit


I saw the AS2400 is compatible with Windows XP/2000/Vista.

You can install Windows XP in your computer (I presume you have a 4th Gen Intel processor installed in it) and run this software under Windows XP.

Windows XP System Hardware Minimium Requirements

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP
->PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
->128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended
->1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
->Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
->CD-ROM or DVD drive
->Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
**Note if you are using the minimium hardware configurations your old Laptop will be very slow.

Upgrading your OS ie Win98 -> WinXP
1. You have to check if your old laptop whether it has any additional RAM slot for additional RAM. (Many older Laptops only have intergrated RAM built-in on the the mainboard).
2. Download the necessary XP drivers from the Manufacturer sites or do a search for the devices on the net.

Hope it helps.

PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

I would take a system restore point BEFORE you upgrade and make sure you back up everything BEFORE you attempt an install/upgrade.

Hope this helps.
