    2) Install SP2

    - Yeah thats problems 2 and 3 right there. 2000 does not support USB2 or drives larger than 127GB. Upgrade to XP Service Pack 2 and those problems will disappear. It might help with problem 1 too. Upgrade to SP2 and post back your results.
  5. shadowduck would i be able to send you an email about something.

    Thank you very much. i went and bought a REAL version of windows with sp2 and it seemed like sp2 did the trick. everthing is running perfectly. now if i can just find a way to keep my mobo from going up to 70 C and processor to 60 C without opening the case and putting a big fan on it that would be perfect.
  9. That will depend on your case, what type of hsf you have and the ambient air temperature.
