  1. These are likely suitable Windows 7 x64 drivers (might need to experiment): https://www.win-raid.com/t4348f52-Win-x-Coffee-Like-UHD-Video-driver.html Or: https://www.texpion.com/2018/06/Intel-7th-and-8th-generation-processor-graphics-driver-for-Windows-7-8-8.1.html This might also do : https://drp.su/en/hwids/PCI\VEN_8086%26DEV_3E98?os=windows-7-x64 jaclaz
  2. Wait a minute. Which way does the fan spin? I mean usually (but not always) fans are made to extract air from the heatsink, not to blow air on it. in this case that black conical thingy attached to the side panel is an exhaust and not an intake or viceversa it could have been (originally) an intake and now due to the changes in the heatsink and fan it has become an exhaust. My two cents (actually only one): DO NOT do that, i.e. DO NOT EVER run a processor without thermal paste (or a good thermal pad[1]) between it and the heatsink (it might take some time (from several seconds to a few minutes) to have two perfectly matching surfaces warp and become non-matching due to thermal expansion but it may happen (it may also not happen, of course). jaclaz [1] which is what you call a "sticker" in the photo, I am confused, you said you had put some thermal paste before (you don't use BOTH a pad AND thermal paste).
  3. Naah, I only wanted to test what your politically correct version of it would have been . The archive and its contents look like fine to me . jaclaz
  4. Yes and no, only for the record., They are ALSO numbered consecutively, BUT the stupid board software has removed the ability to directly link to them (besides not showing it). Example (this was a ) valid link to post #529 on the given thread (the given number is an offset, so it is post #-1): hxxp://www.msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/page__st__528 If you try going to it: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/page__st__528 You will see in the browser address bar that the address is converted (stupidly) to: https://msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/page/36/ what happens is that the post number is divided by 15 (the numbers of posts on each page per current settings) BUT for *some* reasons the operation is on integers so all you get is post #526< (35*15=525+1): https://msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/?do=findComment&comment=832857 while the post actually originally linked is 3 (528-525=529-526=3) posts later: https://msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/?do=findComment&comment=832876 Ahh, the good ol'times, when a link *like*: hxxp://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=128727&st=10 was meaning 11th (10+1) post on thread 128727, which now is: hxxps://msfn.org/board/topic/128727-cant-access-repair-my-pc-option-via-f8-startup/?do=findComment&comment=828512 So many bytes wasted at each request ... jaclaz
  5. FireVox can use Sapi5 but can also use the Java FreeTTS engine, and also Orca: http://firevox.clcworld.net/voices.html (again installing/setting it up for these other sinthetizers may need some work) In 2008 the Firefox around should have been around version 3: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_early_version_history#Firefox_3 So, since even the FireVox page mentions XP and Vista, most probably a VM running either of XP or Vista (and with a suitable Firefox install) might be the "best" test environment. jaclaz
  6. Maybe because it was overlooked to add it in the list of supported OS? Anyway, it does support Windows 10. jaclaz
  7. Retrozilla should support .xpi Firefox extensions. Are you sure-sure you attempted installing Firevox "properly"? From the officail page/with official instructions? http://firevox.clcworld.net/ AFAICR the Retroilla extensions installs is particularly finnicky: https://msfn.org/board/topic/181416-retrozilla-community-edition/ So maybe you need to do it in two steps: 1) install the extensions on a surely compatible version of Firefox 2) IF the extensions work/solve your problem then proceed with Retrozilla and - if needed - adapt the extensions to it. jaclaz
  8. Yes. https://jdebp.eu/FGA/questions-with-yes-or-no-answers.html Of course it depends on what kind of help you are looking for, like: 1) having the whole batch written by some member of the board or: 2) ask for a code snippet here or there to solve a specific problem you encounter or: 3) advice on what approach and tools are better/more suitable Essentially: 1) forget about it 2) just ask 3) Nowadays a Windows 10 install is essentially the booting off a PE of sorts and applying of a .wim file, and we casually have here a very good program to this scope: https://msfn.org/board/topic/149612-winntsetup-v421/ so maybe you want to have a look at it and get familiar with the options it offers, and then ask questions on the batch/batches needed to automate it as much a possible ... jaclaz
  9. Traditionally, when something of possible general use comes out as the result of a looong thread, a new thread is made for the "release" and the "working thread" is kept separate as "history". This way, if new issues, questions, etc. come out it is easier to understand the context and to not get confused by pages over pages of temporary files, tests, side issues, failed attempts, etc., whilst what happened is still kept accessible in case of need. In this case it would be even worse as this thread started only for the graphic card issue. And since Dencorso offered to have the driver hosted directly here, it would be much better, bar your (nice BTW ) idea about Archive.org, commonly used hosting sites tend to have issues before or later, and more often than not files hosted externally tend to go poof over time. jaclaz

    Issues with MTP

    Yep , you were maybe a tad bit too optimistic, I don't think you would need a 32 bit number to count people that use a Spreadtrum Phone on a nlited XP. Seriously with nlite you can (that is the idea) make big holes in an XP install, so your suspect may be correct. Which EXACT (there are 4 files on that page) driver(s) did you download and install? What do you have in SetupAPI.log? (though more often than not error/warnings in it are not accurate, sometimes they offer a hint at what is happening). If there is nothing of interest there, then your next attempt should be to trace the install. jaclaz P.S. Try also the UMDF drivers, some people reported that WMP11 alone wasn't good ( or good enough) on some machines/installs: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s3/help/windows-xp-install-usb-drivers-t1874508/page2
  11. I guess we will never know for sure. Actually it is officially designed for XP and later, and may partially work on Windows 2000: https://web.archive.org/web/20080916191023/http://www.nvda-project.org/documentation/nvda_0.6p2_userGuide.html#2 What about Fire-Vox/MLFire-Vox? http://firevox.clcworld.net/ It is an abandoned project: https://web.archive.org/web/20120301224425/http://visilab.unime.it/~filippo/MLFireVox/MLFireVox.htm But was seemingly continued in Click/Speak: http://clickspeak.clcworld.net/features.html NO idea if it can be made to work on pre-XP and with Retrozilla. jaclaz
  12. Yep, maybe it is better to put the batches and the howto in a .zip within the driver .zip, so that they remain "grouped" until (if) they are used, ot they could be also a separate attachment. If you think that the how to is OK you can start a new thread with a minimum of background/history and the actual files attached, you will probably need to contact Dencorso for attachment size limits you may encounter. There is very little I can check, besided the list of needed files (that we already checked) and their versions (should you have misplaced anything) as the only "real" test/check is whether it works (and only you can test it at the moment), jaclaz
  13. I don't get it. How are extended support dates related? From the links I posted, version 2.0 is 98 onwards, but earlier versions are Windows 95. So, IF the NVDA requires 2.0 OR IF a suitable earlier than 2.0 version is not found THEN it won't work OTHERWISE it may. Most probably this is last version working with 95: http://physics.fme.vutbr.cz/sea/download/ http://physics.fme.vutbr.cz/sea/download/win9x/msaardk.exe jaclaz

    Issues with MTP

    Ah well, not knowing what you attempted not the actual error(s) you get, nor the actual hardware involved, it will be a bit hard to provide you with any detailed assistance. You will need to provide some more exact report. AFAICR the "more complete" MTP drivers shipped with MediaPlayer 11. Generally speaking a VID/PID addition might be needed to the .inf for specific hardware: http://www.rimweb.in/forums/topic/36886-do-it-your-self-your-phones-mtp-drivers-for-windows-xp-sp3/ I won't go with the endless "Have tried this?" "Yes, I did and it didn't work" "Ok, and have you tried this other thing?" "Yes but it failed" ... Detail what you have done till now and the exact errors you got, hardware in use, etc., standard litany, please: https://jdebp.eu/FGA/problem-report-standard-litany.html You may also want to check and post relevant contents of the SetupAPI.log: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/install/setupapi-logging--windows-server-2003--windows-xp--and-windows-2000- jaclaz
