But after rebooting, that 1988x memory range no longer showed a conflict. Give that one a quick try as it was for the adj an earlier version. With enough searching there is always a fix short of a reinstall. Here is a good guide.

I figured that much, as well, by the way. I’m not quite ready to go totally Win7. Easy when you know the limit’s 1: My disc was Win98se so I’m not certain if your version is the same.
