I've never heard such a claim.
Hello everyone, fingers crossed this is fixable cos i can't even get Windows to load... Here's the background: i followed a tutorial in Computer Music issue 61 (page 62 of the July 2003 ish with Reaktor 4 on the cover) saying that for making music it's better to have your PC running in 'Standard PC' configuration as opposed to the ACPI mode that is the default when you install Win XP. I changed my PC over to Standard mode using the method described in the mag (go through the Control Panel>>System>>Device Manager>>Computer>>then update drivers for ACPI pc) and when i went to restart the pc Windows now wouldn't load up, and instead only showed that screen saying there's been a hardware config change and do i want to load Windows in Safe mode, Last Known Working config, or Load Windows normally. NONE of these options work (even Safe mode?!) and instead my pc just resets and these screens start over again. Is there any way i can fix this (manually changing IRQ settings in the Bios or using the Windows Recovery Console perhaps?) as I dread that i'd have to reinstall Windows cos it'd mean losing a couple of songs i just made (i'm a fool for not backing them up straight away...). Sorry about the huge post y'all but thanks in advance for any help you have for me. Cheers,
