  1. I run 7 with an RX 580, no problems with official drivers.
  2. Finally got it! Thank you, jaclaz. I went down a little bit of a rabbit hole on some of your links, and I can't figure out exactly how I got to it...but in case anyone else ever comes looking, the drivers I finally got to work are here: https://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/event/H310_windowstool/ The drivers are "win7_8th_i3_i5_Driver_2.0.rar". Thanks again for the help!
  3. I tried again on a clean install...it seems to make a difference the order in which I install them. Now I got everything except the video controller. The hardware ID is PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3E98&SUBSYS_08591028&REV_02 Any ideas on that one?
  4. Well, thanks again, that got me most of the way. I'm still left with a couple of devices I can't find any compatible drivers for: - Video controller (this is the integrated Intel one...I doubt I'm going to find something for this) - ACPI Wake Alarm - Intel Management Engine - AMD Root Hub (xHCI) - Intel USB 3.0 Root Hub
  5. Wow, thanks for all that work! Most of those links were ones that I didn't come across (especially the first one about the chipset). I'm going to give them a try and will be back with what I find out. Thanks again!
  6. Just a shot in the dark to see if anyone has managed to run Win7 on a Dell XPS 8930. It's got a Coffee Lake processor and a Z370 board, and I was able to get USB drivers, which is typically the hardest part. But I am missing a bunch of other ones (sound, ethernet, and a bunch of system devices/chipset). I've been all over the place looking, and tried Driver Identifier, but it really wasn't helpful. Anybody manage to get this working?
  7. If you delete your default gateway from your regular (non-vpn) connection that should act as a killswitch. I've used this before while using OpenVPN. I have a script 'disable.cmd' which is basically just this line: route delete Where the 2nd IP address is just the address of your gateway/router.

    XP- IPV6

    I'm now receiving an IPv6 address from Comcast, so I figured I would see how XP would handle this situation. I installed the IPv6 protocol in XP per MS's instructions. I haven't made any changes or adjustments. On the hardware end, IPv6 is in native mode, and is supported by the router. My XP PC is receiving an IPv6 address with no problems, and can get to a few IPv6 sites. However, when I run the tests at IPV6-test.com, they all pass except for IPv6 "large packet". I've read this can happen if a firewall is filtering IMCPv6 messages, so I've confirmed that's not the case. Running this test on two Windows 7 machines results in a pass, but I get this same result on two XP machines. I've been messing around with settings, and the only thing that seems to fix this is to reduce MTU (on the router) to 1280 (from 1500). However, this gives me severe issues connecting to regular sites, so this isn't really a fix. Again, this is only a situation on the XP machines. I'm beginning to think it's just some sort of issue or limitation in the IPv6 implementation in SP3. Of course it will be a while before this becomes an everyday issue, but I'm curious...has anyone else tried IPv6 in XP and experienced issues?
  9. Hi all. I have a PC that has 3 administrator accounts and 2 standard user accounts. When a UAC prompt for elevation appears, it lists the 3 admin accounts that you can click and enter a password for. I'd like to have this dialog NOT display all these accounts, and instead have the user enter both a username and a password. I don't see anything in group policy for this but I swear I've seen it before. Is there a way to make this happen?
  10. Just to update, it's been about a month and I still haven't received any notifications at all. Is this a site-wide issue?
  11. I have a few forums (Windows 7, XP, 2000/NT, and a few others) that I used to get a weekly digest of. I've noticed that I haven't gotten this in a few weeks. I checked my spam folder, there's nothing there...I checked the forums and it seems that I'm still subscribed and should be receiving updates, but I haven't gotten anything in a while. Is this a known issue? Anyone else having this problem?
  12. Ran into the same problem when it wouldn't load properly from Windows Update and I tried to use GenuineCheck to get validated.
  13. Wow, again if I let it sit for over an hour it works. Glad to see it's not just me, thanks for trying that out. I wonder why it takes so long just to scan.
  14. Ok, I have an interesting result. I started the "Checking for updates..." process and let it run for about an hour. Still nothing. So I let it run overnight (about 8 hours or so) and when I came back I had this: http://i.imgur.com/wYHbN7N.jpg On clicking yes, it prompted me to update: http://i.imgur.com/2azb8kR.jpg This installed Genuine Advantage Validation Tool, and the package installer. Finally it took me to the update screen and offered all the expected updates. Thinking everything was now working great, I closed the window and tried again to get to Windows Update, and it's hanging at the checking for updates screen. I have some things to do so I'm planning to let it run for a few hours and see what happens. I just can't figure out what's going on now.
  15. Good idea. I'll let it run and see what happens. Maybe the trick will be to let it scan for update for at least 8 hours!!! I'll post back tomorrow with the results.
