  1. I just did a near vanilla install of windows 2000 recently (only using the 5.1 update) and found this website: https://www.mylgphones.com/lg-android-usb-device-drivers I found the LG United Mobile Driver 3.8.1 to be compatible, and was able to access my old lg trac phone on windows 2000 via usb cable! Don't know if this has already been found-but I thought I'd share it here!

    Who has the latest Firefox ESR Installed?

    How do you disable telemetry on Firefox? I use occasionally on Linux.

    Great tutorial and Nvidia card question

    Yes, I got the extended kernel to successfully install and was able to use more updated versions of various programs, but I tried several of BWC's drivers and couldn't get any of them to work.

    Great tutorial and Nvidia card question

    Well, I've tried a number of BWC drivers and no luck, I finally decided to go to XP Home for my windows machine and just use classic settings.

    How to use 4 Cores in Windows 2000

    Just tried that on the windows 2000 installation I have (with Blackwingcat's extended kernel) and it works! I can see 4 cores of my amd processor in windows 2000!

    Great tutorial and Nvidia card question

    Any suggestions about an Nvidia driver for my geforce 710? That's the only issue I have left. Edit: Here is a pic of the original box for more information.

    Last Versions of Software for Windows 2000

    Thanks for your work roytam1, please keep working on vanilla 2000 friendly browsers! I've ordered a new hard drive and plan to have a win2000 specific desktop soon. Btw-do you take donations to support your work?

    Great tutorial and Nvidia card question

    Tried an old geforce 7200 card, the BWC drivers still don't work-broke out an old 165 driver and it worked fine. I was able to install the 4.13 version of CCleaner, the current version of VLC and Smplayer and run them successfully so I know the extended kernel works.

    Great tutorial and Nvidia card question

    Well, I've went ahead and tried several of BWC Nvidia drivers so far (300 series) and no luck, I've heard of something called extended core (KB979683-v10c-x86-enu.exe) and gave that a shot. It installed with no hiccups but all my attempts to install the Nvidia drivers through the control panel have failed as well. Darn it, I feel I'm on the edge of success this time-but I seem to have hit the wall again.
  12. While I'm a Linux user mainly these days, I do experiment with older windows from time to time so after seeing this tutorial on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-1pIl-Wdzo I downloaded the files and dusted off my Windows 2000 sp4 disk and tried it out on my dell optiplex 740. Following each of the steps has worked great and now what I need to know is which is the best BWC Nvidia driver to use? I have a 2gb silent Asus geforce 710 card and I'm not sure which is the right one to use.

    The fall of Linux?

    Been hearing about Linus Torvalds recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwn3gIipCjU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPJsWQvQ-gs I suspect Luke Smith may be right, is Linux going the way of Microsoft? If so, I might as well reinstall windows 7!
  15. A while back, I read that if you updated the bios on a dell optiplex 330 you could use a core 2 quad processor (2.66 gb socket 775) instead of the specified core 2 duo processor. After the bios update, I was able to use the core 2 quad and even go up to 8gb of ram successfully. However I noticed that every so often in windows (Vista and 7, 32 or 64 bit) I would get a 'kernel crash error'-especially when I was playing high power games. However I've never had an nvidia crash when using linux-which makes me wonder-could my using the core 2 quad be putting things off kilter in windows since it's really not what the 330 was designed for? I wonder if going back to a core 2 duo might be just the thing to help-but before I run off and get another one-has anyone had a similar issue? I really want to use windows vista/7 again since the game options are greater than linux for now.
