problem on 3.86
i installed Borland compiler 4.52 on my 3.86 and it work just fine.
Evry code i write goes fine ... but once i want to read a file for data it gets messed up.
+ i doesnt give me the error (which i clrealy asked if the file cant be accesed).
+ output to screen is always different sometimes even the pc speaker starts to make sounds :s
Is this because the 3.86 is too slow??
No it's not too slow, i'd say your system is unstable for some other reason. That code would run fine on a 286 even, i'd do some tests on that comp...check how the hdd is functioning first.
Hate to say this sry but it was some louzy coding of me that caused these things.... although when i ran the same app on a faster machine it didnt displayed those errors.....
And indeed it could be something Hard disk related.... i had to try 6 times be4 i had borland installed on it. Anyway im going to put all my code on it and see what it does now. (+ ill check my bios settings about the CAS read/write state - pick the highest of all ).
thx anyway for the reply
