I've only had this XP setup for less than a year, and I have hardly installed any programs on it (all I use are StreetDeck and Centrafuse). Winamp, a virus scanner/firewall (which I have disabled since I don't have an Internet connection on it), and backup software are about the only other programs I have added.
SD and CF on the same machine are known to play king of the hill and in some cases it disabled the first installed one from running after the latter one installs. Just ask daniel whatever his name is.
Basically you have a system problem. You want help, and the best help is just start fresh. You dont seem like the kind who likes to tinker based off of this thread, all your other threads, and the fact that you bought a G4. That is fine and all, but you may want to listen to advice when you get it from 2 independant sources to just do a reinstall. Or quit complaining.

The issue Daniel had with his screen not working in SD after installing CF 1.2 has absolutely nothing to do with my situation. Quit spouting nonsense you don't understand.
AND "QUIT COMPLAINING"!!! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE ON THE FORUM WHAT TO COMMENT ABOUT?!
Anyway, I did go back to a backup I had made soon after getting the G4, and the problem still occurs whenever the phone is connected. So what is your brilliant advice now, 2K1Toaster? You must have the answer since you are such an expert. (And did I mention you need to stop complaining?)
I am not complaining, my PC works. I am trying to help you.
And a backup is not the same as a reinstall. Start fresh and it will work. I can guarentee it.
Also, the screen issue is just the most recent. There are numerous times where the same computer with both SD and CF wont run correctly. I dont use either so it could be PEBCAK like this one.
EDIT: was trying. I give up, you didnt pay me so get your support from them
The backup was made shortly after the installation provided by MP3Car.
You can guarantee it? So you are using the exact same hardware as me, including the same phone (since the problem only happens when the phone is paired)?
Regardless, I had planned to do a clean XP install anyway just to prove the point. In fact I have the slipstreamed XP CD in my car right now for whenever I have time.
backups are not the same as a reinstall. he is right. you havn't tried reinstalling xp? yeah, you should do that, i am curious to see what happens...
EDIT: I just read on another thread that you installed 2.0 over 1.2? That's a no-no (I know, website account says different, this is misleading, but, the release notes...). So you've reported numerous system specific "bugs" that no one else is experiencing, flamed our developers multiple times, flamed other fellow users trying to help, and you have not even tried re-installing xp or even bothered to read any important notes and recommendations in the release notes?
Let's reinstall xp and start fresh, we're not guaranteeing that this fixes all, but often times it does. Gotta try it...
Please show me where I flamed any CF developer, or other users!! My only angry response was to 2k1Toaster who told me to "stop complaining", even though I was not complaining in the first place. It is not right for you to accuse me of things that are not true.
And my current CF 2.0 RC5 is NOT installed over CF 1.2. I had done that at one point, but not with my current setup, on which CF 1.2 was never installed.
AND I have fully read the release notes for each version I have installed. Why are you accusing me of things that are not true?!
EDITED: I am a CF developer, and I haven't accused you of anything. I know what I read, and can point you to multiple spots where your posts could have been reported, but I'm not going to go there yet... Right now, it doesn't matter, this is moot, and like I said, let's start fresh, and reinstall xp...
Okay, I spent 4 hours tonight reinstalling XP and setting up the many G4 drivers, and it is worse than before. Now the G4 just hangs forever before getting into Windows when resuming from Standby, but ONLY if it was put in Standby while CF was running.
But I think the old performance problems will happen anyway, because CF gets noticeably slower as soon as the phone is connected (even while not on a call).
crap, i was crossing my fingers for you. I'll get back to you tomorrow. this just does not make sense.
