With ethernet connections without cables and shares that are offline. The fix is easy if someone tells you. Disable the ports you don't use and disconnect from network shares that are offline.
No fix from Microsoft was ever issued.
I have started having a graphic/video problem with several of the few games I use. These include two "Pac-man type" games and a shooting game, "Placer Racer" by Hoyle.
The problem is that frequently when the Pac-man figure is racing across the screen, or when game balls are being shot at targets, these moving figures will suddenly slow down for two seconds or so, and then rush to resume normal speed. Five-to-ten seconds later, the slowdown cycle occurs again. The condition started several months ago and has remained the same since then.
My computer has the following specs (from Lavalys):
* Microsoft Windows 98SE
* Intel Pentium IIIE, 800 MHz (6 x 133)
* Motherboard: Asus CUV4X-C (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 AMR, 2 DIMM)
* System Memory: 256 MB (PC133 SDRAM)
* BIOS Type: Award Medallion
While the games are still playable, this recurrent "unwanted slow-motion condition" takes the edge off playing them.
What do you suppose is wrong?
