Default Display Adapter Problem

Kazaa is Peer to Peer (P2P) software, which is often used to share music on
the internet.

The errors you are receiving indicate that Spyware is on your PC. "Almost
Bob" posted two links to free software that will remove the Spyware for you.
You need to download and run those programs.

Joe,

I never heard of Kazaa. Is it something I should have that would help?

Did you have Kazaa installed?

Thank you very much, Joe. In the "Select Device" table there were
three
choices. I selected "S3 Inc. ViRGE PCI". The other choices were "S3
Inc. ViRGE/DX/GX/ PCI" and "S3 Inc. ViRGE/VX PCI". The display is
working much better now, in 16-bit color at 800x600 resolution.

There are still a few problems.

When the computer starts up, the Desktop wallpaper shows. Then a box
displays reading:

RUNDLL
Error loading C:\WINDOWS\NEWDOT~1.DLL
The system cannot find the file specified.

Then there is another box reading:

Error
Resource file not founded. Program killed.

Near this point the screen goes dark for about 15 seconds. After that
everything seems OK.

Would there be anything else I can try? When my computer was first set
up under Windows 95, it had drivers for Number Nine. Windows 98 has
drivers for that.

Thanks again,
Daniel

They are the latest and last drivers available from S3.

Create a folder on your desktop called Video Drivers.

Download the video drivers to it. Right click and extract the files
to
the
*same folder*, or extract it using one of the free zip utilities from
the
PC
World Magazine website:

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/fil...id,6531,00.asp

**If you already have the drivers extracted in a folder you can find,
then
start here.**

Since the drivers do not have a self-installer so you will have to
follow
these installation instructions for Example 2 or Example 3:

DRIVER INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

Click Start, then Settings, then Control Panel.

Start the "Display" applet program.

Select the "Settings" page, push the "Change Display Type"
button.

Push the "Change" button in the "Adapter Type" area.

Push the "Have Disk" button and press "OK".

Specify the path to the new driver and press the ENTER
key:

Example 2: Type in the name of the directory where you
copied
the drivers, either on your local hard drive or
on a network share.
(***This will be the Video Drivers folder you
created
on your Desktop***)

Example 3: If you're not sure exactly where the drivers are,
choose the "Browse..." button are find them.
(***This will be the Video Drivers folder you
created
on your Desktop***)

The "Select Device" dialog box will appear. Select the adapter
that
corresponds to the one you installed in your machine and click
OK.

Windows 95 (or Windows 98) will copy the display drivers to the
proper
directories
on your system.

Continue choosing Close until asked to restart your machine from
the
"Systems Settings Change" dialog box.

After the system has restarted, you can go back into the Display
applet and select alternate screen resolutions and color depths.

Make sure you *temporarily* disable your anti-virus program since it
can
interfere with the video drivers installation process. Reboot your
computer.

Default Display Adapter Problem

Thank you, Joe and Almost Bob. I ran Ad-Aware and I no longer receive
the NEWDOT~1.DLL error.

However, at startup, I still get a box reading:

"Error
Resource file not founded. Program killed"

It's really no problem. I just click "OK" and everything is fine.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of this error, though? I have
already run System File Checker and Registry Checker.

I don't know what that error message refers to. Maybe someone else will
come along who does.
