I like the idea of offering a no-cost help service for pc users; this is a very noble gesture what you have undertaken. My problem (so it seems) is a system that just doesn't seem to run as fast as I feel it should. The hardware is as follows:

PII 233Mhz
4.3 HD
USR 56K Modem
SiS 6326 Video Card
SB AWE 64 Sound card
Generic CD ROM
Win 95 (OS)

The problem became more tangible when I clicked on properties then device manager then display adapters properties of the SiS 6326 card. The resources tab gave me the following (and I quote):

Conflicting Device List

Memory Range E6000000 - E63FFFFF used by:
Intel 82443LX Pentium(R) II Processor to AGP Controller
Memory Range E5000000 - E500FFFF used by:
Intel 82443LX Pentium(R) II Processor to AGP Controller
Input/Output Range D000 - D07F used by:
Intel 82443LX Pentium(R) II Processor to AGP Controller

Does this have any bearing on my problem of a slow system or is it a problem at all? (I haven't a clue as to what it means either)

Any and all suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards

Usually you can safey ignore shared memory address's under the video card (unless your machine is actually locking up and crashing that is : ). When you say that it is running slow, can you give some examples of the machines behaviour ? Does it take ages to start up ? Or maybe it plays games very slowly ? etc

A 233 is - by todays standards - very slow, but it depends on the kind of problems you are getting. Was the machine ever faster than it is now, has it sudenly slowed down ?

I would like to know how to configure dual modem on win 95 to increase speed with single ISP account
