win9x: how work with drivers?


Recommended Posts

speaking on win 95/98/ME/2000: the problem will be, most of time, the drivers...

the best is when we know the driver ID and Vendor.... so how can we get that values? we need use another program?

i can share the vendor and device, but lets try fix these driver 1st

more: i try it install manually, but the System didn't find the driver... so maybe isn't these the right driver :(

after install AutoPatcher and install the USB3e.exe, the pen works now(fat32)

in real life 9x need just bit patches:
- ESDI506.PDR from BHDD or TBP, and/or AHCI.PDR if ur machine work in ahci mode;
- RLP;
- NUSB;
- "-p i" switch for incompatble acpi bios;
- directX,. video and sound;
all other - garbage.

if u talk about this machine:
http://www.notebookreview.com/notebookreview/acer-aspire-1690-review-pics-specs/
then machine look as fully compatible...

get AIDA64 https://www.aida64.com/downloads
run it under 98 (not XP!),
select Report/Wizard/Custom/uncheck All but Devices (other get bsod)/Plaintext,
save to file, compress with zip and upload here...
then i try find really needed drivers for u.

:angry: why? i clearly say - run in 98 (NOT XP)!

ur actions with kex can give wrong data for aida!

think u need drivers only for these devices:

    Other devices:
      PCI Card                                          
      PCI Ethernet Controller                           
      PCI Network Controller
