  1. Driverguide has all the stuff for the 3300 series listed as "Tech Upload", which means you have to pay to download them. When Driverguide finally changed to requiring individual logins, they said new drivers uploaded would be only available to paying members for a short time, then would be released to everyone. Some of the HP 3300 stuff is still on "Tech Upload" that was uploaded there in 2004!
  2. Will LiteStep work with 98SE2Me or would that be a bad thing to try? The 'full tilt' 98SE2Me setup and a 5,400 RPM 40gig hard drive put some fire (more like hot coals) in the old PII 300Mhz laptop, but it's still a sluggard at times. I'm currently saving my pennies for a newer lappy capable of running XP, but I'll likely keep the olde Tecra 8000 for 98SE experimenting.
  3. Interesting... for the PhotoSmart 3300 series, the AiO_071_000_201_000_CDA_Default-Full_Network_AmericanEuro1.exe download from the 2000 and XP page has Win 9x drivers in it. I ran it on my Win9x laptop and let it self extract (took a couple hours on a PII 300 with 128M RAM) then copied the hp_webrelease folder and contents from windows\temp so it can be installed without having the big wait. 'Course they couldn't use something extractable with WinZIP or WinRAR. So at least for now, looks like some HP stuff that has a huge software download for 2000/XP may have the 9x/Me drivers in it as well. Makes it a bit of a pain to download though.
  4. To use European convention... HP are arseholes, as are Microsoft, Intel and anyone else who does crap like this. Microsoft removed all information on their verra nice-a Office Keyboard and Strategic Commander from their site. Intel has lied for years in the info for their chipset software- claiming they support all the versions of Windows, but when you run the installer you find your version of Windows "already supports" that chipset. (And trying to find the final version of the package that actually contains drivers for your chipset/Windows combination is extremely difficult due to Intel using the same filename for years for all versions!) Driverguide.com are also arseholes. When they finally went to requiring individual logins, they also started this "Tech Upload" thing where new uploads would be restricted to paying members for a few months. Welllll, it ain't so! I was just there looking for 98 software for an HP Photosmart 3310 and ALL the software they have for it for ALL Windows versions is "Tech Upload", uploaded all the way back to 2004!
  5. After doing a clean install of 98SE, drivers, IE6, 98SE2ME, 98MP10, the unofficial IE6 update- what's safe to install from Windows Update? Something I've run into on both IE6 and Firefox 2.0.0.6 on this laptop now is that most sites will not load until I hit stop then refresh.
  6. That's set to C:\Windows\options\cabs Dunno how it got set to that. Can I do this? C:\Windows\options\cabs,C:\win98 Most likely won't stop it asking where the Windows install files are. I used to service and build PCs for a living and I'd always copy the win9x folder to the hard drive and change all instances of D:\win98 (or whatever letter the CD-ROM was during install) to C:\win98 and ALWAYS during driver installs I had to go back and forth several times telling Windows where the drivers were then where Windows' files were. The original Add New Hardware "Wizard" in 95 was the best version because the user could skip the id*** thing right to start with and point it to the drivers. With each new version of Windows users have been forced to endure more and more CRAP before finally getting to the point where the "Have Disk" button can be clicked. If the 3rd party sofrware world wants to do people a wonderful service, come up with a replacement for the Add New Hardware "Wizard" that forces Windows to skip all the "automatic" garbage. Yes, I do miss the days of "Jumper and STAY" resource settings. The hardware would work because it HAD TO- being locked down to what the jumpers were strapped to. Win95 would sometimes insist on assigning the wrong resources, but even then it could be hammerd into submission. Nowadays when Windows gets into its widdle mind that two devices are going to be assigned conflicting resources, there's little or nothing that can be done to convince it otherwise. *sigh* If only IBM hadn't been such 'tards on licensing the MCA bus and setup system.
  7. AVG 7.x works great, has a DOS boot virus scan that runs first in 9x, every time you boot, doesn't take long. It's not a resource hog at all and it'll scan files when you click on them in Explorer. I've taken Norton Internet Security Suite off many PCs and replaced it with AVG and Spybot Search & Destroy. Norton is a huge resource hog. What's really annoying with it is to select anything in the left pane of Explorer you have to do three slow clicks because the first two times Norton's butting in to do something and de-selects it. AVG's operation is totally invisible until it finds a virus infected file.
  8. The 98SE WDM driver for Yamaha OPL3-SAx audio doesn't work correctly with 98SE2ME. It'll install and appear in Device Manager and the audio devices list in the sound control panel, but not on the tabs where you select the Preferred Devices. The only thing that can then access the audio devices is DXDIAG in DirectX 9.0c. I had to go back to the VXD driver, which causes a constant low level noise in the speakers unless the volume is turned down and doesn't play nicely with hot swapping CardBus cards for some reason even though there are no conflicting resources. (The VXD driver worked fine in pure 98SE.) Would it be possible to rip the WinMe WDM drivers into an installer for use with 98SE2ME? I'm willing to test it on my Toshiba Tecra 8000 laptop.
  9. Bleah! I had to go back to the VXD drivers. The OPL3-SAx WDM entry vanished from the available devices in the sound control panel, even though it was still in Device Manager. DXDIAG could access the audio functions but nothing else could! Looks like the Win Me driver will need to be hacked for use with 98SE2ME.
  10. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 with 98SE2ME. The Toshiba hibernate utility works perfectly with it. It's a two part thing, after installing the utility you boot to a safe mode command prompt and CD\halloc.tos then run halloc /c to create the toshiber.dat file in c:\ (If the RAM size is changed, the halloc.exe program must be run again to recreate toshiber.dat.) Reboot into Windows then click Hibernate on the Start Menu. The screen goes black then there's an animation of a laptop with the screen wiping over to a disk. Power is totally off and the laptop can be left that way indefinately. Poke the power button and the animation comes up- in reverse, in a few seconds you're right back where you were before. Hard drive speed is very important to how fast it hibernates and comes back. Mine took a long time with the original 4,200 RPM 6.4gig, but now with the 5,400 RPM 40gig drive it's really fast. The whole laptop is faster. It used to take over five minutes to boot, now this 300Mhz PII is ready to go in 1.75 minutes.
  11. Got it working. Used the blowtorch labled "DirectX Runtime 9.0c".
  12. Is there any way to make Windows actually use the MRU lists in the Registry when it goes looking for its own installation files and other things like driver files? All the MRU lists are used for is to fill in the drop list Windows asks the user to chose from (or Browse) when it gets amnesia and can't remember where things are, often several times during some driver installs or things like changing network settings. Windows SHOULD SEARCH THE MRU PATHS for files. Windows SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO ASK WHERE ITS OWN INSTALLATION FILES ARE! But no, it can't. It keeps asking for the "CD-ROM" even when it was installed from the Win98 folder on the hard drive. Really annoying is when it's asking "Duh... where's muh install files?" and RIGHT THERE in the drop list it has c:\win98 ! Every version of Windows from 95 through XP does this same STUPID thing. Does Vista still do this?
  13. It's the *uninstaller* that renames the .INF file! (Bad uninstaller! Bad! *viciously cluebats whomever programmed the uninstaller to do that*) So I did this, ran uninstaller, rebooted, found new hardware, no driver, renamed the .BAK file to .INF, update driver on unknown device, found driver, rebooted... No sound. Says "The NTKERN.VXD, MMDEVLDR.VXD device loader(s) for this device could not load the device driver. (Code 2.) To fix this, click Update Driver to update the device driver." Really? I thought the Update Driver button made the computer fix me a ham sandwich. *clicky* It reinstalls the driver, even though it says the best driver is already installed... Reboot and still got the (!) and "NO CONFLICTS". (Bull#%@#, there's a conflict between me and one stupid OS that can't even remember where its installation files are.) Remove the device, reboot, finds and installs driver, reboot, get cursor with hourglass that won't go away, *reset* annnnnnd... Right back where I started, see the "The NTKERN.VXD..." above. Where do I apply the blowtorch to make this %&%@# thing activate this sound hardware?
  14. I found that WDMA_YMH.INF in c:\windows\inf had been renamed to WDMA_YMH.BAK so I changed it back. I'll run the Yamaha uninstaller again, then rebooting should force windows to install its WDM driver. (I would do it right now but waiting on the horrendously long process to install Office 97 Pro, even though I'm only installing Word, Excel, MS Photo Editor and a few other things.) Microsoft claims that INF is in cab 49. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/238775/en-us Wrong! It's actually in cab 50.
  15. I've done a fresh install of 98SE and 98SE2ME on my Tecra 8000 Pentium 2 300Mhz laptop with 128meg RAM and a 'new' 40gig hard drive. The built in audio is Yamaha OPL3-SAx and when I first installed Windows there was sound, but I then installed the drivers from Toshiba. After doing 98SE2ME (current release) it does bad things whenever I have my Compucable USB2 CardBus (PCC-USB2-2) or Belkin F5D7010 Ver.4000 WiFi card installed. The audio sometimes crackles and it'll lock out the keyboard and mouse buttons and eventually freeze the computer or do the thing where moving the mouse or clicking buttons or pressing keys makes it buzz. Doesn't happen without either of those CardBus cards installed. Didn't happen with plain old 98SE and the VXD audio driver either. I tried using the sound driver uninstaller then tried to get Windows' own driver back but the only Yamaha driver in the list is for some USB audio thing. How can I get that 'generic' driver back? Or might there be a way to use the WDM driver included with WinMe? Yamaha's site claims theres a WDM driver included with 98.
  16. On my laptop running 98SE and Office 97, it's recently begun doing a strange thing. When I doubleclick a JPEG image, it launches MS Photo Editor, which immediately prints the image to the default printer, then exits. How do I stop it? (Photo Editor is doing the same #%%@ thing on one of my XP desktops too!)
  17. Is there a site that has older intel chipset drivers, listing the latest chipset it actually contains drivers for? Intel gives all versions the same filename and many times I've gone back to the oldest download shown and still it won't install anything because the chipset is already "supported" by that version of Windows. Baloney! Some no longer available Intel download did install drivers but not the latest or currently oldest available that claims in its description to "support" that chipset and Win98SE. For example, such a site would have an installer that will actually install the last 98SE drivers Intel made for the 815 chipset. Or the 440BX or the... Same for 95, 95B, 98FE, Me, 2000 and XP. I'm tired of Intel lying on their site about what chipsets and Windows versions their installers support. When it DOES NOT really contain drivers for a specific chipset/windows combination, why does the description say it's 'supported' by that installer?
  18. In Win9x/me, IO.SYS combines the functions formerly split between IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS in MS-DOS 6.22 and older. MSDOS.SYS is merely a read only text file the IO.SYS process reads to obtain a few parameters- such as where Windows is located. Once control is handed off to the Windows kernel, IO.SYS is out of the picture. IO.SYS could actually be named anything because the BIOS doesn't launch the bootstrap file by name, it launches it by the physical location of its first sector on the hard drive. After that first sector is read, the boot process switches from BIOS to software control. Before Win95, MSDOS.SYS also had to have its first sector in a specific location or IO.SYS couldn't find it. With Win95 through Me, IO.SYS does what it should have all along- it uses the file allocation table to find MSDOS.SYS. After IO.SYS has launched and read the parameters in MSDOS.SYS and passed them to WIN.COM- it's all 32bitsville and the DOS stuff is pushed out of the way. It would be possible to use a completely new loader in place of IO.SYS to launch Win9x/Me but Microsoft did things that way to maintain the ability to run in a plain DOS mode and for running DOS programs in a virtual machine when Windows was running. If a DOS program makes a call to MSDOS.SYS, IO.SYS intercepts it and redirects it to the appropriate function within itself. DOS programs that cause problems with "DOS 7" or later or don't run under Windows 9x tend to be those that try to do things in undocumented ways. If a program tries to "strong arm" its way to an MSDOS.SYS function it'll crash because that file isn't what it was in DOS 6.22 and older. That does have a nifty benefit, it makes it extremely simple to move a complete Windows 9x install to a new hard drive without requiring any 3rd party software. With your new hard drive FDISKed and FORMAT d: /S 'ed with the first partition tagged Active, jumpered appropriate to where it's connected... Step 1. Boot up then change the virtual memory file to use the root of C:\ and reboot. Step 2. Launch Windows Explorer and go to the new drive. Step 3. On the new drive, rightclick MSDOS.SYS, click Properties and uncheck the System and Read Only boxes. Step 4. Click in the right pane on C: and hit Ctrl+A to select everything. Ctrl+click to UNSELECT IO.SYS WIN386.SWP and COMMAND.COM You *do* want MSDOS.SYS selected. (Without copying the old file, Windows won't know where to find itself on the new drive.) Step 5. Hold the Right mouse button and drag all the selected files to the root of the new drive. Answer YES to overwrite any files. Step 6. Shut down, re-arrange your hard drives so the new drive is connected how the old drive was and boot into Windows 9x exactly how it was, except on your new, larger and faster drive. The only detail you may have to attend to is setting the swap file, Windows 9x sometimes gets confused about it when it "wakes up" in the unfamiliar surroundings of a roomier hard drive.
  19. Nope. This was from before anyone got MP10 onto 98SSE. Here's a batch file I picked up off the forum, I also found the exe2cab program somewhere.

  20. Which should I run first? Autopatcher or 98SE2ME? What about the XP SP2 stuff? I'm currently experimenting with all this fun stuff on my old, slow laptop. Already ran Autopatcher and had it install everything it's got. Just the bare bones Me stuff it installs has already made a big speed difference! My plan is to eventually (sooner if something goes *foom*) wipe the hard drive and start fresh on the laptop.
  21. How do I fix Windows Update thinking my 98SE laptop is a Macintosh? I tried both of the standalone fixes. Which part of the auto-patcher is that fix in, in 1.95? Something else to think about is Spyware/Malware blockers that have runtime programs to guard against Registry and system file changes. If there's a way to at least detect them running and abort the install, with an ending note/warning to stop the resident program from launching at boot, that'd be nifty. For Spybot Search and Destroy, the program is teatimer.exe Autopatcher will still work, if you're willing to sit there to poke the A key every time TeaTimer pops up. Now that I know this'll work, I'm going to get WinMe, already have XP's Service Pack 2, so I should be all set to nuke-and-pave for the ultimate 98SE system. Just the 'bare bones' WinMe bits make a noticeable speed improvement. Toshiba Tecra 8000, Pentium 2, 300Mhz, 128meg RAM, 6.4gig hard drive. Fortunately no BIOS or other issues on this model with drives up to at least 120gig.
  22. KB913433 is obsolete for the current version of Macromedia Flash (from Adobe now) for IE6. It's also obsolete for whatever prior version of Flash I had on my 98SE laptop. Other than that, everything else installed OK.
  23. The speed of it ain't the problem. This has gotten slower over time. I've had boxen of similar speed running 2000 Pro on my LAN and never had any network browsing speed issues with them. On the laptop, it's all "stock" 98SE except for the WinMe USB Mass Storage drivers from this forum.
  24. Something I've found. If I click size to group the smaller files first, then go to thumbnail, it'll display more of them. If I group the larger files first, it displays fewer thumbnails. It's also spread to every folder on every drive with images! It appears as if Windows has "decided" that there will be a certain total size of thumbnails per folder and that's all I'm going to get. I've also found that it creates the thumbnails on two files at a time by using Process Explorer. I can select a folder with images, go to thumbnail view then when it stops, Process Explorer shows two files in the folder with open handles, sometimes more than one handle per file. Even weirder is that the last row showing thumbnails always has just icons on the LEFT, with a couple of thumbnails on the RIGHT, as if it's generating them in order from left to right. I haven't installed, or uninstalled, any software that does anything with editing images. I did uninstall DreamWeaver MX, but that doesn't _edit_ images, it just plonks them into HTML.
  25. I've searched the web and found the fix for NONE of the thumbnails displaying for one or more image file types, but that's not my problem. All file types that 2000 can display thumbnails for in Explorer do, but in _some_ folders the thumbnails will display for the first 20 or 30 or 53 or however many images, then none will display for the rest of them in the folder, no matter what sort option I choose before switching to thumbnail view. Nifty how I can sort by modified then switch to thumbnails and have the newest files at top or bottom, then go back to details, sort by name then back to thumbnails and there they are by name. I have some folders with hundreds of images where thumbnails will display for them all, and some with only 100 or so that only the first (variable number) will display. It's NOT a corrupted file problem, every image will open fine in Photoshop 7.0.1 or MS Photo Editor or Paint. (The few types Paint supports.) Does Windows 2000 have somewhere a maximum total of allowed thumbnails that needs to be increased? Possibly related to this is I have it set to cache thumbnails, but it never has. Every time I launch Explorer and open a folder set to Thumbnails, it has to regenerate them all. It'll hang onto them until I exit Explorer. (Indexing for searching the drives has also always behaved like that, only hanging onto the index until I quit the current Exploer session, but that's most likely unrelated to the thumbnail problem.)
