win9x: how work with drivers?


Recommended Posts


finally the graphic card drivers installed..
yes i forced the installation using the drivers list ;)
before continue, i need ask: using the Driver Genius, can i backup all drivers? after install all drivers is best format and reinstall them at-once?
now i will do the same for audio ;)

YES

finally i fixed the sound driver ;)

after install the Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver(WDM) and select the driver on Control Panel - Multimedia, i have sound ;)
now i'm trying find the right wireless driver ;)
thank you so much for all to all

what I learned from this complicated job:

1 - with aida64 I can get the vendor and devices, that is, the driver's IDs;

2 - then I search for the drivers using these values and indicate the operating system;

3 - you can install it, some may not even be compatible, but we must insist;

4 - if it still doesn't work, we have to go to the list of drivers and searching windows can give us 1 driver warning, but accept it anyway and it can install and work after restarting the pc;

5 - some drivers, like my sound, may need to configure and select the sound driver in the Control Panel - Multimedia.

but i continue with severy work for finish what i need ;)
with more time i will install the wireless and what left. then i will need the NTSF drivers or something for i use external drives(pen or HDD) that use NTFS

there is only two drivers: UFSD (not NTFS only, but also Ext2/3/4 FS supported) and Paragon PNTFS (RO and RW variants).
each is just one VXD file, and for run is enough just place file in windir\system\iosubsys.
i not sure, that it was ok attach they here, but i can send to u in PM. ok?

select any 1 of 2 and just copy it into windir\system\iosubsys. then reboot machine.
