Logitech Wireless Desktop and Windows 2000

by ronwbonds / January 30, 2006 5:28 AM PST

I have a machine that I just upgraded to Win200pro. After installing all service paks and upgrades, I go to right click on the desktop to create a folder and it refreshes the desktop, if I do it again it makes me restore my active desktop settings. If I open a window and click on File it does the same thing. Anyone seen this or have any ideas?

Something I never install.

Logitech or Microsoft mice/keyboard "drivers" or enhancers. Sorry, but if you find them buggy, all I can do is agree and share I never install such.

found the problem

I discovered what the problem was. I did some research and it turns out that Win2kPro, not logitech, had setup the wrong video driver for my card and it was trying to use memory that it didn't have. So, once I loaded the correct drivers it worked fine.

Microsoft is not your driver supplier.

When we install this old OS, we get a basic set of drivers. It's up to us to find and install proper drivers.

Many are still learning this and XP did no better.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
