  1. Since Windows 7 was originally bundled with IE8, it is possible to downgrade to IE8 by uninstalling each version of Internet Explorer one at a time. I decided to try this and it worked successfully. The only problem is that I noticed it displayed "Update Versions: 0" in the "About Internet Explorer" window. I downloaded this thinking it would update IE8. It installed without issue, but it still says "Update Versions: 0" regardless of the update. I also checked Windows Update and installed all available updates (none of which were for IE) and the same problem still occurs. I know Internet Explorer 8 isn't exactly the most secure browser anymore.
  2. Browsers and Websites for Windows 3.x

    Does Windows 3.x include NT 3.x? If it does, then that means you have more options. This website and www.google.com should definitely work under mostly any 3.x browsers.

  6. [SOLVED] Windows 2000 does not detect I/O sound ports

    Okay the sound is now working, however the volume control icon does not appear on the taskbar even when "Show volume control on taskbar" is enabled. EDIT: A simple reboot made it appear on the taskbar. I wasn't sure how to use DevCon but I got this to pop-up in the Command Prompt. There is still one unknown device in the Device Manager named "PCI Simple Communication Controller" Thank you for the help so far.
  7. [SOLVED] Windows 2000 does not detect I/O sound ports

    It closes as soon as I open it. I made sure I was using the 32-bit version. Same thing occurs.
  8. [SOLVED] Windows 2000 does not detect I/O sound ports

    It said that that DevCon.exe is bundled with Visual Studio. I have the 2005 version, but there is no DevCon.exe. Tried and to no avail... Sorry!
  9. [SOLVED] Windows 2000 does not detect I/O sound ports

    Windows 2000 doesn't have the 'details' tab by default.
  10. [SOLVED] Windows 2000 does not detect I/O sound ports

    How can I view the Hardeware ID? I tried using "set DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1" but it never showed up. I had already installed the Realtek R2.74 drivers and installed them again using the link you gave to me. Unfortunately, the UAA High Definition Audio class driver didn't help fix the issue. https://imgur.com/d1sMaGz
  11. Hello, this is my first post here, but alas, it is a question. I have recently installed a copy of Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4 on a Compaq SR5610F which had originally run Vista. After some of Vista's black screens of death it was decided to start fresh... with Windows 2000. After a couple driver problems the computer ran smoothly and I installed Blackwingcat's KernelEX, (Amazing project!) Media player 10, .net framework 1.0-4.0, VC++ 2005-2010 redistributable, IE6 SP1 & 3, Chrome, Firefox, and all post SP4 updates except for an update for Microsoft Data components 2.8 that would not install at all. During this time there was no sound whatsoever on the computer. Windows 98 era speakers that are hooked up correctly and work flawlessly are not at all recognized by W2K. Another set of speakers and headphones were also tested, but to no avail. A new Realtek sound driver was also installed but it didn't help fix the problem. I have been led to believe that the W2K is simply not able to detect the audio device ports on the computer. The computer has one port on the front and another one in the back and none of them are recognized. There are two unknown devices in the device manager that could be the source of the problem. https://imgur.com/4JsBBNC Help is greatly appreciated!
