I am facing couple of problems with my WINXP.
My system is:-
OS Name:- Microsoft Windows XP Professional (SP-3)
Motherboard Model:- 945GCM-S2L
System Manufacturer:- Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
System Type:- X86-based PC
Processor:- x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 13 GenuineIntel ~2400 Mhz
BIOS Version/Date:- Award . F8b, 9/5/2008
SMBIOS Version: 2.4
CD Rom:- Imation IMWDVRW16LI
Display Name:- Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family
Appeared after a blotched attempt to install Linux on the same hard Disk. WinXP was booting OK after this. But the Display settings changed to some generic one (4X3). Tried several times to uninstall and reinstall the display driver from the Motherboard utility CD without any effect.The driver will install and when restarted, the display will be the generic one.
The monitor is 16X9. So manually I have to select the monitor to show 4X3 otherwise the display will be elongated.
Recently I have noticed that when connected to Internet, there is continous activity on the modem( ADSL & Lan). Checked with TCP view and found the following line repeated over and over many times.:-
explorer.exe:1024 TCP sudharma-y0ot6p:1212 c-69-250-33-97.hsd1.md.comcast.net:11963 ESTABLISHED
these lines begins with explorer.exe:(XXXX) and the TCP address keeps repeating or a new one after a few lines.
What is is the solution to rectify these problems. Any help will be much appreciated.
