There was something wrong with the Beam Scan PC. The mouse and screen were not responding and the PC was asking for drivers for any new hardware that we plugged in. We called in the services of Junaid and co. since we do not have a Win98 Second Edition installation disk in the lab. Junaid came with the disk, we changed the screen and the mouse and installed everything.
We tried to get the network going on the PC so that we could update stuff easily over the net. This didnt succeed. For now, we still have to depend on a Win98se CD to get drivers if any new hardware is connected to this machine.
For future reference, some notes:
1) We will get a copy of Win98SE for the lab from Junaid
2) We have to use a USB mouse from Dell. We have several spares of this. The drivers for these are present in the machine.
The Beam Scan is working okay now. We will proceed with the beam profile measurements.
