  1. Happens to me, and its funny this takes as much time as a project by itself. I finally settle up on the Compaq Armada E500 for the Win98. Works great and I love the old look it have as a 5 kg brick haha. Just need a new LCD which I actually found cheap and the palmrest which needs to be changed and will look really good. Question, do old LCD get dimmed in brightness over time? This one certainly look like doesn't have much brightness. I will probably find a normal PC to install XP into it.
  2. Thanks, well after many hours and attempts at getting the drivers to work (Jesus christ!, I don't know which one is worst, a GeForce Go 6150, or a Conexant HD Audio conected to a AUU MS Bus) I finally gave up. I found a gem, a Compaq Armada E500, in a cheap price of 20$ fully working. That will be a breeze with a Pentium III, 256MB RAM, and Graphics dedicared ATI one. I mean I would love to have this HP working withh good graphics driveer but that was to painful for me to get it working as there is no much support for that graphics card driver. Do you know a good old laptop that have a good video card for dual booting xp and Windows 98SE and/or Windows ME (I know Me was unstable as heck, but that was the OS that I grew up with)?
  3. @LoneCrusader I will try this over the week. Do you know the last generation of mobile graphics cards supported by Windows 98 or ME either by Nvidia or any other maker of the time? I will research quite a bit which laptops had it and if I can find them over my country. There is a good chance to find here old hardware at a bargain. I love this DV9000 Laptop but can't find the drivers for it, works good except for the graphics card, was never supported by Pre-NT for I actually looked for, and the good shot was the modified drivers. I got all the NVidia Registry files I could get from 98, and also from XP but unsure what I'm looking for exactly. I will send in a bit the name of the files so I can a bit of hep, don't much about editing registries.
  4. I got a issue here, I want to install a NVidia GeForce Go 6150 graphics driver, but there is no official support for W9x, the one that worked and flawlessly was an individual package for a DV9000 for XP. If I extract the contents of the self installer, can I use WDMEX for installing those drivers? Otherwise, iff you have extra ideas on how to make the drivers work on W98 I can die happy and just rock my old laptop.
  5. I Think it was GeForge Go 7000, the Go term could be taken as 7000m for example, it was the mobile version. Ok, I will look that up. and use GPU-Z to see that. Thanks.
  6. Once I find a driver with the UMA share memory setting what do I do then? Do you mean get the registry from regeddit in XP and apply it to W98? I've saw in a driver for 9x some GeForce Go 7000 series should I start by those?
  7. So in simple terms am I screwed?
  8. Thanks, do you think if I use only 512MB of RAM and make a clear install of W98, without the PATCHMEM from Rloew, will I be able to use it? I got a bunch of drivers to look for, will start and write back when I have some answers.
  9. Yea I did look there before opening the topic. I will update if I find something. Any extra ideas?
  10. Just came by this directory of NVidia Drivers they seem official: https://http.download.nvidia.com/Windows/ Probably worth for some since we deal with old graphics drivers.
  11. Hi, I was able to select the nvqh.inf file, that is the file that comes with the Graphics card driver that I did install on Windows XP without issues. However, Once I select it and shows the Card Model which is the GeForce Go 6150, it gives me an Rundll32 error. Which I tried to ingnore but unable to do so. I'm just guessing I can't use this driver without some tweaking or modifying. Although I will get a memory Stick of 512 MB to test a fresh intall in windows 98 and try again to install the driver. Here is the error: RUNDLL32 caused a general protection fault in module SETUPX.DLL at 0003:00004310.

  12. Hi, I tried all the drivers installations on XP successfully installing the devices. I got the .exe installer for my specific card, worked good to the supported resolution of 1440x900. Now, on Windows 98 I can't install it, it shows these errors: NVUNINST caused an invalid page fault in module NVUNINST.EXE at 0167:004018f1.

Also this Graphics card does not have integrated memory but uses the main memory up to 128 MB. Also is it possible to use WDMEX to load drivers from Windows XP installers if I uncompress the files in a TEMP Folder?

  14. These Drivers : http://www.mdgx.com/files/nv8269.php Regarding the ID on the picture, that ID is for the Monitor and the audio I believe. I did find the hardwared ID for the Graphics card and matches the GeforceGo 6150, the same it detects Win98. I will install XP and get a good complete list of the ID so I can still all the drivers and get the drivers working on XP. I did test the Graphics card and works good. I one test and shows some kind of overflow. Will report the complete test after a bit.
