    What's funny is I build a new AMD 1900+ system.
    I was running Windows 2000 and it worked fine.
    I upgrade to Windows XP, installed JRE 1.4 and
    the latest TWS.

    Now when I login, the machine reboots after
    I enter the login and password and hit the Login button.
    Might just use my old machine for TWS and new machine
    for charts.

    Anyone run into this same problem? Rebooting right
    after your hit the Login button?
     
  5. I had this exact problem. I had to replace the nic (I can't remember what brand) with a 3-com. Everything was great then. IB has a list of NIC's that work I think. I know it doesn't make sense, but this seems to be a somewhat common problem. Good luck.
     
  6. Driver might not be compatible with Sun Java JRE, this is a well known problem.
