We've received several emails asking us how to remove programs that
aren't listed in the Add/Remove menu. The safest way to remove any

* Adding RAM

Jason from Mansfield, OH has an e-machines with 32
megs of RAM. He wants to upgrade to 128. The key is
to get the right RAM for your machine. I use the RAM
selector at http://www.crucial.com to figure out what
kind to buy. They also make excellent RAM at
competitive prices. You should also make sure to
prevent static electricity from zapping your computer
components. In most cases it's sufficient to touch
the metal casing of the power supply while the
computer is plugged in. In more severe circumstances
you can buy a static discharge strap from your local
computer store. 

* Windows Me and Tomb Raider Chronicles

David from Cleveland, TN has been having trouble
getting Tomb Raider Chronicles working with Windows
Me. We couldn't find a patch, but contact Eidos for
information. Or visit

Meanwhile Shannon has some good suggestions. She

Tell the caller that you have to do a Scandisk and
Disk Defragmentation before running this game.  If
not, your game will freeze as you go to different
levels or the sound will loop until the scene is
done.  And on rare occassions, it will crash, showing
the (gasp!) blue screen of death. 
Also, you need to update your video and audio drivers
from DirectX 7.1 to DirectX 8.0.  The game comes with
DirectX 8.0 that it installs in your pc. 
Thanks, Shannon! 

That's it from the Call for Help crew. Thanks for
watching. I'll be back tomorrow. Meanwhile, remember,
it's not your fault!
