Hi.

I have installed XP SP2 which I intend to use offline so I can play games because my more uo-to-date OS can't play some games my older OS (XP) can play. However, I can't update the hardware on it. I tried going to Device Manager and updating the audio and other items in there but it doesn't want to work, I tried installing Lavalys Everest Home Edition to visit the relevant site for the hardware to update them but that gives me a BSoD (I nearly miss those!!), and I also tried using windows's own update but it says I need to update IE 7 because it encountered an error so it won't work on IE7, to which it also says I must upgrade to a later version of windows in order to update IE, which I am not doing on purpose because I want to play games the more modern OS won't allow to work... Going to download Everest again, it says to try another programme which is a successor to it. I don't want to try anything which will be only a trial and tell me I must pay; I want to have free home versions which is what Everest was, which I used.

I also use a good old CRT monitor instead of my laptop's screen; for whatever reason, it doesn't want to allow the monitor to work with it. How can I update the graphics and audio and get the monitor to work, as the minimum, so I can play my games enjoyably, please? (I have a connected mouse and keyboard which I use.)

It's a Samsung laptop and 64-bit. If I need to "upgrade" to SP3, then that is not a problem because I downloaded the SP3 executable ages ago and kept it - for possible reasons exactly as this!

Thanks.

You should upgrade your notebook OS to XP SP3 and upgrade IE to the last IE for XP (IE 8 if I not mistaken).

 

Check the Samsung website for your notebook model for any newer drivers.

 

If your notebook already having the latest drivers (as per Samsung website) then that's is it.

 

p/s for external monitor display, that's combine keys press Fn + " " (check you notebook keyboard) to enable it.

I installed SP3 and downloaded the Samsung drivers. It told me to install dotnet, so I did, and I tried again. Now it says the computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the drivers.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

Are there any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager? If so then right click each device, select Properties, and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box.  Copy and post the first line from each device.

There are more than 100 security updates post-Sp3...that number may be as high as 300.

 

Installing SP3 is just the beginning of the journey to make XP as secure as possible.  All post-SP3 critical updates need to be installed.

Thanks, hamluis. I am using (rather, I intend to use) XP only so I can play older games. I don't intend to use the OS online - except to update hardware and software for games as necessary; the hardware needs updating because the audio is not working and the video (graphics) are jumpy/laggy on the OS itself. I'd hate to thikn what they'd be like in videos or games! Other than that, I don't think I need updates (well, maybe one or two, if any) for software because I have used these games when I had XP before and they worked, before knowing that Windows 8 wouldn't play them.

If this computer is not connected to the internet you will need to download the drivers to a flash drive and install from it on the XP.

 

I will be editing this post as I continue to find the drivers. What is the model number of the Samsung and was this a downgrade from Windows 7?

 

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0269&SUBSYS_144DC0D8&REV_1002 - Realtek HD Audio  R2.74  2014/5/14 31233k

 

PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_C0D8144D&REV_09 - Realtek Ethernet - WinXP and Server 2003 Auto Installation Program (SID:1699998) 5.830 2015/1/21

 

PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0032&SUBSYS_4105144D&REV_01  - Atheros Wireless - Download 10.0.0.274. The download takes a bit to start. Unzip the file to the desktop. Delete all files with a X suffix. These are your 64bit drivers. Update the driver using Device Manager following this guide.

 

Edit: Once you get online download the intel identifier utility. This should take care of the 8086 vendor devices. If not post back.

 

Edit Edit: Here is your VGA drivder

 

USB2.0-CRW    USB\Vid_0bda&Pid_0129&Rev_3960 This is your card reader. Go here. Click on the small hard drive icon. Provide a junk email address. The download is from Samsung.

 

Unfortunately, there is no bluetooth driver. This is an Atheros AR3012 chipset which does not support XP.

The key word is "connected" because IE (whatever version) is an integral part of Windows and is used at the process level...whether a user ever goes to a website or not.  IE will always connect with the Microsoft website via the svchost (and possibly other) processes.

 

I also believe that any security software will also routinely connect via the Internet for updates, etc.

 

IMO, running XP without any security software...iand accessing the Internet for any reason...s just asking for trouble.

Your Welcome,

Were you able to download the intel identifier utility and if so did it take care of the 8086 vendor devices? How did the rest to the drivers go?

I managed to install the audio and graphics drivers as I needed. At the moment, I don't think I need to connect to the internet for anything, but if and when I decide to install one or two particular games, I will be forced to. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Thanks.
