Re: strange error

If it is actually missing you probably need to update the chipset drivers, do you have a motherboard driver disk?
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: strange error

You're probably on the Creators Update version (1703)
Running winver will tell you.
