When you first start the PC, Sarah, there are a bunch of words and letters on a black screen (called POST - power on self test). Press Pause when you see this. There should be a date near the bottom of the screen. That's the BIOS date. Let us know what it is.
One more thing. Open System Information (MSINFO32.EXE) and navigate to Hardware Resources > IRQs. Click anywhere in the right pane and then press CTRL-A and then CTRL-C. You have copied that data to the clipboard. Paste that data in a reply here.
: I have kind-of an old computer system. I have all parallel ports for my printer and stuff. I have no USB connections. Is there an adaptor for the printer port for my digital camera? If you need more info, please let me know. I am new at some of this stuff. My computer is one that my father built. It runs on windows millenium and has about maybe 8-10 gig. Also the digital camera is a low-end olympus. I cannot remember the model # off the top of my head. Thanks for all your help.
