Troubleshooting Tip If the Task Scheduler is not working, make sure that the Task Scheduler service is started and set to start automatically (use the Computer Management tool or the Services tool to check)Sounds and Multimedia: Sounds and Multimedia Use the Sounds and Multimedia tool to configure sounds with particular actions and to configure multimedia capabilities such as compression, MIDI, and other featuresSystem: System The System tool enables you to configure user profiles, the computer’s name, server performance, and access the Device ManagerSystem Properties: System Properties Figure 6-5 System optionsDriver Signing: Driver Signing Driver signing: A digital signature that Microsoft incorporates into driver and system files as a way to verify the files and to ensure that they are not inappropriately overwrittenSystem File Checker: System File Checker The System File Checker is a tool that is used to find inappropriate versions of critical files, such as .dll and .sys files and restore the appropriate versionsTroubleshooting Tip: Troubleshooting Tip If you install software from a vendor and afterward find that certain features of Windows 2000 Server no longer work properly, use the System File Checker to locate which system files have been overwritten and then to restore those filesConfiguring the Display: Configuring the Display After installing Windows 2000 Server, use the display tool to: Check the color and pixel settings Install a new display driver Set up a screen saver Set up the background displayDisplay Properties: Display Properties Figure 6-6
