  1. I gather you're a Vista fan , right ? In that case you ought to know , there are no Vista video drivers for Intel Haswell at all , so I couldn't install them , even if I wanted to. This bug happens on Vista RTM (without DX11 support) , how would you explain it then ?
  2. One simply can't beat the Dutch quality . Made in Holland , Made with Love , Made by Dixel. P.S. Thank you for the kind words.
  3. The next stage/phase of chromium development is web.brain , to track down and eliminate survivours after the global takeover .
  4. Not this one , no . It's just yet another ugly and bloody obvious tracking/telemetry technique we shall have to disable/block.
  5. Any realtek chipset should do just fine ! If you read the ME docs , it says it has it's own mac address , right ? So how it will send any info if it's own LAN is switched off ? Of course, there are newer motherboards that have realtek onboard already installed and the address is known to intel ME , but you will have another card with another address and intel ME won't have any drivers for it ! Checkmate. P.S. I'm sorry , I don't know about 2017 motherboards , my youngest is more than 8 y.o. , as of now. But in theory it should work too ! Just try to use older PCI cards. (not PCI-e). On the other hand , PCI-e should work too . I just didn't test it myself . To answer your question , my chipset is Q87 and ME can't go online with another PCI realtek card ! Another mobo is with Q45 , the same , it's blocked.
  6. @ArcticFoxie, and if you have a 3rd party firewall , you also need to allow it's driver . But that's it.
  7. You're welcome , enjoy ! Hi , I'm sorry , I can't find your post I've seen a bit earlier (where you showed us your XP network settings) . You do not need all that bloat you enabled (like client for Microsoft , etc), you only need TCP/IPv.6 or v.4 (depends on the ISP). I remember I suggested you to disable some junk services earlier , and you liked it , perhaps you will like this too. Have a nice day.
  8. If you want , I can send you [I think I had said it a very long time ago] my version, not only it has a good dark theme , but with dark webpages (inverted) . Plays 4K on youtube [even wih XP] and has no russian language . With zero russians involved during the building process. Also , it can pretend to be an iphone without detection. Due to my laziness, it still has minor English language misspellings. I should say they are more like a weird translation made by a non-native speaker. {but not russian , lol}
  9. A free advice from an old school dude : 1- Just buy a dedicated network card [not intel] and this will prevent ME from going online . I can send you a link to a good German store (approx. 5-12 Euro). 2 - Also , you need to disable the onboard intel LAN in your BIOS. 3 - Realx and Enjoy . P.S. Not sure if this trick will still work with the modern systems. I do not have any. My "latest" is from from 2013 and the trick works on it.
  10. Well , I have a haswell laptop , it has this bug without Nvidia drivers installed , how woud you explain it then ?
  11. So we may safely assume those are win10 ported drivers . Why ? There are no 372.93 and 373.19 windows 7 drivers . I looked at some others (older ones) I received from FS and all of the numbers correspond to their windows 10 versions (!), but not win7. Like 369.09 and 39 https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/game-ready-drivers/13/236586/nvidia-driver-36909-/ BTW , looked at 373.19 again , it supports all 1000 series cards , including GTX 1050 Ti , only the lowest end GT1030 is missing.
  12. You're welcome ! I'm sorry for your 30 Euro down the drain . If only you lived nearby ... I could solder them for free . Buy an office Siemens board, where it could be disabled in BIOS , yes , there are some boards like that , for your 775 socket also . A good example would be Q35 chipset boards where Siemens folks made an option to disable it completely , even with a password protected setting , so no one could revert it back! I'm guessing could be found for 10-20 euro max in Germany.
  13. Yet another link says : "Key Features: - Latest 7th Gen. Intel Core i7 processor - Latest GeForce GTX 1050 2GB GDDR5 with desktop level performance ! And you may know that the first GTX 1050 driver is 375 , so this one is (at least on par with it or even newer) So we can assume the neighbour is right . https://drivers.softpedia.com/get/GRAPHICS-BOARD/NVIDIA/MSI-GL62M-7RD-NVIDIA-Graphics-Driver-373-19-for-Windows-10-64-bit.shtml
