Problems with itunes

I have a dell dimensions 4550. Recently I have installed a new graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce FX5700LE 256MB ) and a psu to support this graphics card. I did this so my new screan would work to its best settings. But, ever since I installed my new equipment I have had troubles with itunes. Itunes will slow down my computer after 3 songs are played and then I will have to close Itunes. I think it might be my processor, but I don't know why it would start acting up. Please help me know if there is anything that I can do to make my computer run smoothly.

Telephone company installed Comtrend CT-301 modem. Recently having connection issues with computer and noticed RED alert light coming on frequently on modem. What is causing these problems?

I've seen bulging capacitors inside this modem causing me problems. Changed the caps and everything was OK for a couple of years after that. Started to have more problems with this modem recently, called phone company and sent me an new modem. Problem solved.
Also, it seems this old modem does not like the newer routers (D-Link DIR-615). It connected for a while, (30 seconds) then lost connection completely until power was cycled on model. The modem worked OK with older D-Link Router.

Audio Driver Installation Failed.

First guess is you have the wrong driver but I am seeing others having this problem as well. Either that or you post to a ton of boards.

OK first correct chipset drivers.

That would help audio drivers identify your audio card.

Next are the right audio drivers. The list includes other drivers you might need. Do not use the chipset or graphic drivers from this site as they are outdated.

Hope this helps

I can't get my computer on the internet . I am using windows xp and the modem will not get the internet on the dell computer

Hi, This modem can be used via one of two ports: ethernet port (network port) or USB port If your computer has an ethernet port, it is perferable that you connect through this as you will have better performance. If you don't then you can get an ethernet card installed inside the CPU. If it's not possible to connect via this connection and you have to use the USB, then you will need drivers. This website gives you full instructions on how to use this particular modem and also gives you the USB drivers if needed. Good luck! Lolita
