  You  see, we  didn't  really  use it. Only  as  a  pencil. Or  to  scan  
mail. But  when  my  room  mate  used  it to  get the  internet  we  discovered 
 its  problems. However, we  would  have  discovered  sooner  if  we  had  
gotten  it  on  the net. But  back  then  before  dsl  came to  our  town  we  
used  dial up up. That  was  why  we  didn't  get the  internet. We  didn't  
know  windows  well.

      No  she  didn't. but  it  was the  same  name of  computer. But  it  ran  
windows  98. It  was a  bad  computer  from the word  go. We  didn't  discover  
it's  problems  until  we  got it  online. Just  after  the  3  year  warrantee 
 ran out.

        I don't think she had this one, this one has   a quad processor with 
2.4 gigabytes ea. 8 gigabytes of ram.. It is an HP Pavilion, with 8 gigabytes 
of ram and 750 gigabytes of hard drive.. It also has capabilities to play/burn 
DVDs and CDs and can record movies from your TV on to your computer with a 
cable and an antennae that came with it, I doubt that windows 98 had those 
capabilities, because I had 98 myself one time along with M.E. and Windows XP 
also.. I ran 95 a long  time ago and 98 also.. I don't think she had this same 
computer, don't think it was even out then.. This has too much speed and power 
to run Windows 98 for one.. This is really what some poeple run games on like 
Evrquest and such, takes a lot of power..

            I have thought aboutdoing that since my ram is 8 gigabytes and this 
is a brand new computer I just got it last month, it is an HP Pavilion with 
plenty of hard drive and speed and power and quad processor with 2.4 gigabytes 
of processor each.. I was told Real Speak had larger files than Eloquence, I 
ran XP with a little Power Spec computer for 6 and a half years with only 25 
megs of ram and 5.10 Jaws version and hardly ever lost speech with it. It goes 
sometimes with Windows mail which has to have Windows messenger with it, a tech 
support person with HP suggested buying Microsoft Outlook and disabling 
messenger and Windows mail, which Windows mail comes with this computer and it 
like Outlook express.. Thanks for your suggestion.. Pat6

                Thanks, I think I will ask FS about the larger files in Real 
Speak that someone told me about and ask if that is causing the problem.. I 
definitely will not trade in this computer, I will just put Eloquence back on 
if that is speech and it's files that are causing it.

                  Why  not  get  rid of  real speak  that  comes  with Jaws? If 
 you  lose  speech  then  you  might  have to  take  back  your  computer  
trade it for a  different  one.

                    Hi All, Recently I purchased a new computer, with Vista 
Home Premium on it and am running Jaws version 10 with Real Speak instead of 
Eloquence because I like the sound of it better than Eloquence but was told it 
had larger files than Eloquence does. My computer is a HP with 4 quad core AMD 
processors 2.4 gigsbytes a piece. I am using Windows mail which has to have 
Windows Messenger installed to run this mail which comes iwith Vista so 
thoughtI'd try using it since it is similar to Outlook Express which I have 
used before. What it is doing is losing speech sometimes in Windows mail. It is 
set to do Windows automatic updates and this morning instead of it sitting on 
the start menu telling me to press windows key and M to go to the desktop it 
was totally shut down on it's own this morning when I first sat down to the 
computer, I assumed it had done an automatic update since it is set to do them 
every day at 3 a.m. Also Windows Live 1 Care is set to do it's own updates 
around 6 a.m. every day.. Usually though it will restart itself, not totally 
shut down and turn itself off, I hve never had to happen before this morning. 
Also Messenger keeps popping up with a reminder messenge that it is running in 
the background, can't seem to ge tit to stay on the sys tray.. I even called HP 
tech support and they told me I might have to buy Microsoft OUtlook and take 
Messenger off and uninstall Windows Mail and go to using Microsoft OUtlook.. I 
have used it before and it is alright, I used it before I got this computer, in 
fact.. I can't imagine why I keep losing speech in Windows mail or at the time 
when I am trying to close out Windows mail to put it on restart myself for some 
reason.. Sometimes when the messenger reminder messenge comes on, it losses 
speech there. Also in a website with a combo box, I pressed alt down arrow and 
it said open list, but when I down arrowed to choose what I wanted to chooseon 
the list there was no sound, and I lost speech again.. I wonder what is going 
on? I wonder if the larger files of Relal Speak could be causing this? Could 
you advise , if any of you have used Jaws 10 with REal Speak and have a HP 
computer that is using Vista HOme Premium, I don't know if the 4 processors 
make a differenceor not as far as losing speech with Jaws but got this computer 
with the 4 processors and the rest of the package because it was such a good 
deal price wise and it was recommended to me as being a great buy by someone 
who had worked as a system engineer and who also has had a little experience 
with Jaws.. Thank you so much for your heop in advance, any help will be 
appreciated with these problems.. Pat Dallas
