Okay I have everything  repartitioned.  I have Win 98se reinstalled.  I have put the Asus Driver Disc into the cdrom and clicked on the setup.  The install window came up and when I went to Click on the "Install SIS APG Drivers v1.09" . . . I noticed this message that I didn't pay attention to before "Please be sure that you've already installed Display Drivers."  Is this the "Kslockf.ax" problem.  Windows didn't install display drivers?  I can see  the screen just fine.  It doesn't have the Nvidia installed yet so it is low res.

Display drivers means the drivers for your video card (or display adapter).

Sounds like you may want to use the video driver disk, or download and burn the video driver for your video card and install that first then try the motherboard disk if that's what it's wanting.

Yes, it is the Nvidia drivers. What exactly is this Nvidia card?

And I am almost certain "Kslockf.ax" is not part of the Nvidia display driver.

I have a 800x600 in 64 colors, Nvidiia Geforce4 MX 420 ver 4.0 card.  However, I do not see a disk for the drivers.  The only disc I have is for the Asus mother board which also has the C-media Audio Drivers v5.12.01.0635 and Applications.BTW I do have the current drives for the Nvidia card and a driver from july (?) of last year.

Okay adding the Nvidia drivers first made a big difference. I have installed the the SIS from the Asus mother board cd.   I DID NOT get the error message this time.  :'(   Okay I will do some updating of drivers then I will do the c-media section.

Okay, I made a mistake. . . . I am up too late.  I forgot it was the C-media that caused the problems.  I just tried installing that and kept on hitting the the skip button button:These are the files missing from C: windows\system\precopyksdataksinterf.axksproxy.axksvpintf.axmspclock.sysmskssrv.sysand the Kslockf.axIt still says it is waiting for the audio drivers.Where is that hammer?

msi files take advantage of the Windows Installer 2.x. I do believe you will need to install Windows Installer 2.x before you can make use of the msi file.Windows Installer 2.0 Redistributable for Windows 95, 98, and Mehttp://www.microsoft.....isplayLang=en

codecs are the code that allow you to view / listen to different types or versions of media, such as mp3 or divx.downloading the latest divx player will allow you to view many files that media player (as installed) won't.

We all learn and give/get advice from others.  I have been doing this for over 15 years and still learn a lot by joining places like this and participating.  (my first day!)Codec stands for code decode, and you will need a lot of them if you watch videos on your computer.  Try www.codec-download.com and get some of their packs.  New ones come out all the time, so it is something you need to keep up with.  Media player tries to find a codec if it doesn't have the one it needs, but usually fails, so you have to find them yourself.  Keep with it long enough, and you can play 90% of the video you run across.

Okay it turns out I didn't find the problem.  I looked in the c:\windows\dahotfix.log and it says"error MSMXL 2.6 is not installed on the machine."  It can hardly patch something that is not on the machine.  Maybe I need to Install the Windows 98SE Unofficial Service Pack next to see if that doesn't take care of this missing file?  Or is it on the 98SE cdrom and I need to copy it like the Kxxxxxx problems?Thanks fo the tip, Rando.

Looks like you no longer need the 2.6 update to MSXML if you installed the following 3.0 version from your list:

Shouldn't need it now, right? Or am I missing something?Welcome to Scot's Newsletter Forums, Rando!
