I just got a dell d400 (to replace an aging ibm 570)
At some point, after setting up the wireless (as usual, I disable the intel software, and use the XP wireless software), I notice I start getting a strange error when shutting down the laptop:
“sample” this program is not responding
I figure I’ll look at task manager (and look at the startup areas), to find out whats going on.
But I cannot find a program called sample (I didn’t do a file search on XP… I just went straight to google, and looked for the same error).
After some reading, I decide the best solution is to totally uninstall the intel proset software.
After the removal, the problem vanished (but the wireless kept working, as removing the intel software didn’t remove the wireless drivers)
