Your error message is most likely due to having a config.sys file or autoexec.bat. Unless you need DOS or legacy support for a CD ROM, you do not need this line at all and can edit the appropriate file or just get rid of both of them. I would start by renaming the above files to somthing like .old. This should clear up the error message. Next, I would not rely on Norton's RAM count. Just do a right click on My Computer and select Properties. Under General, you should see you RAM amount. If it's less than you feel is there and paid someone for installing it, it needs to go back. If you did this yourself, you may have a non working module or one not compatible with the other. You need to test them one at a time in your PC to see if they are recognized. If they work separately but not together, odds are they are not compatible and your MB refuses to use one of them. You mentioned in the start of your message that your system is functioning better but later in your message that it's running slower. What was fixed by pest control and Norton?
First, when I start my system: HP 8750C, PentiumIII, WIN 98 SE, added 129mb to Ram when purch. to go to 256,: I get 2 lines that read as follows:
Missing or corrupted file: C:\CDROM\OAKCDROM.SYS
Error on Config.Sys Line 10
then the system continues to boot up with no delay.
I have run Adaware6 and Spybot S&D and cleaned up all they could find and have recently installed Norton System Works 2004 with Personal Firewall 2004 and run all utilities fixes. All of these have made the sytem function better but still get these messages at boot up. What do they mean and how can I fix?
Also, when I get system information from Norton it is only seeing 128 of RAM and not the 256 that I have installed and is telling me that I am 100% used on RAM. I am worried that the system is not seeing the second 128 memory card. My system is running slower after installing the latest software. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
