  1. Help finding Sound Blaster Windows 98 drivers

    http://support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=7476 AUDLS_PCDRV_LB_1-02-00.exe The official site has a working 98SE driver for Sound Blaster Audigy LS PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007. It's from Feb 2004. When you run the program it tells you it can't find a SB card. While the message is still on the screen, go into your C:\Windows\Temp folder and copy the Crf000 folder to your desktop. In there is a Drivers folder, inside that is the Win2K_XP folder- it's actually for 98SE too. I just got my Audigy LS working. I thought my card was fried, the last time i used it a few years ago. it made garble sounds but I guess it was just a driver issue.
  2. Gaming Guide

    I don't consider myself a big gamer, but recently I wanted to see what my laptop could run in 98se with or without KernelEx. I bought Far Cry and later Far Cry 2. The Far Cry that I got is a "SoldOut Software" package which says Vista compatible. It installs but doesn't run-it just kinda fizzles out after a couple seconds with no error, although it's suppose to be win98 compatible. It installs a version 1.4 patch for the game. I see in earlier posts here Far Cry has worked in 98SE. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it because I have an updated installation DVD aimed at Vista compatible? Far Cry 2 installs (set to KernelEx WinXp mode ) and eventually crashes with an error when it tries to update directX before the installation is over. It has C++2005 SP1 package and dotnetframework 2.0 on the DVD-the same versions that can be installed in 98se. I didn't realize when I bought Far Cry 2 that it needs to "phone home" to unlock the game. It was giving me a "security" error when i tried to run the exe on DVD. So I guess this one's out of the picture
  3. Wireless N PCI for Win98SE?

    you could try Airlink AWLH6080. I can't confirm it works but I can confirm that AWLC6080 works and runs at 130Mbps in 98SE.
  4. Launch of new Wi-Fi USB devices on 9x

    Glad to hear... I have the DWA-130. However, I can't find WDMex on Rloew's site to purchase. I have the first three versions of the rt2870.sys file from 2007-all missing only NdisInitializeString. I hope to use it with this utility(contains rt2870.sys driver also): https://web.archive.org/web/20071110223821/http://www.airlink101.com/support/index.php?cmd=files&id=103
  5. "Slipstreamable" Intel Chipset INF Drivers

    I'm surprised how well ACPI works in 98SE with ICH7 on my Inspiron 9400. The system powers off when I shutdown or when the lid is closed. In all my previous dell laptop experienced ACPI didn't work at all--ICH4-6 Inspiron 5150,8600,or 9300.
  6. I have 3dMark03 results from my Dell Inspiron 9300 (Pentium M 2.26ghz) and Inspiron 9400 (Pentium Core2 Duo 2.16ghz) both using the same Go 7800GTX card. And results from the 9300 with a ATI x300 card. Both running 98SE. Files attached are xls (excel 97). Notice the "B" in operating system "service pack" . I suppose the USP3 would be a "C" if one would want to refer to it in this manner. 94testNV.xls 93testNV.xls 93testATI.xls
  7. Apparently the Go 7300 is the G72 chip and the Go 7800gtx is the G70 chip. So I'm thinking the NV driver is not compatible with the G72-at least with this laptop (Inspiron E1505). Rloew supplied me with a test program and determined his patch was not necessary. The Go7300 has 128mb physical ram and is able to use 128mb more system ram (in NT) for 256mb total. I turned page filing off in 98se- but it didn't make any difference. Since there isn't any alternitive 9x compatible video card that will mount correctly on this, I rest my case with 98SE and this laptop. I have moved on to the Inspiron 9400 / E1705 and I'm not dissappointed.
  8. I came across Sigmatel4487.exe a while ago when I was searching for early hda drivers for to try in 98SE on my Dell laptop. I found the WDMDEBUG folder interesting- I haven't seen this folder before. It looks like it has some kind of debug drivers for stac97 and hda. The version numbers are identical to each other.
  9. Compatible Hardware with Windows 9x

    I got tired of messing around with printer ink cartridges so I bought a HP LaserJet M251nw. It works in 98SE with the HP PCL5 9x driver already installed in 98SE. I connect to it using wireless through my router with the HP network printing port monitor software for 9x. (you can find it here in another topic) I'm not sure it will work through USB connection--the only thing 98SE detects is a USB storage device.
  10. I had the exact experience with my Inspiron E1505- 19 times out of 20 system would freeze at "updating system settings". I recently tried reinstalling from scratch and couldn't get past the system freeze no matter what I did. I eventually had a successful install and I backed it up. I think you'll have to do the trial and error method till you figure out what can work--- like installing DX9 as soon as possible -(in safe mode if necessary)--which will probably be your biggest hurdle--at least it was for me. I think the intel graphics is giving you the black screen or whatever graphics driver Windows is trying to load. I got my black screens every time the Nvidia driver loaded. Hope this helps
  11. Software compatible with ME only?

    here's a link to TomTom I believe it's ver 1.3 for Windows Me (or 9x with KernelEx I suppose) build Oct. 2006 http://tomtom.gps-data-team.com/get.php?download=O22/sweet/application/latest/TomTomHOMEwinlatest.exe
  12. Windows 98SE and ME's behavior or my laptop?

    You have to disable USB emulation in BIOS on some Dell laptops so Windows 98SE can detect usb devices.
  13. I updated from release.10 to 13 and 3Dmark05 loads now! It was complaining about something missing in advapi32.dll before. I'm using 3dmark05_v130 10.01.244 (found by google), not the one from their official site. It doesn't run the tests but I can see the system information it detected in 98SE.
  14. excellent, I remember reading about this but I couldn't put my finger on it. I tried rloew's nvcheck and it returns "invalid size or unrecognized video card" 8 times. I hoping it's the latter. I'll contact RLoew and post back findings.
  15. I found the nv82.16 driver and installed it. I also disabled the network wireless card. Then I adjusted powermizer down from max power savings to any other setting. The effect was that it increased frame rates considerably. But, I also get the black screen randomly. I didn't see any performance difference when adjusting powermizer with the nv82.69 driver. Also, I found it interesting that in win98se (with either driver), dxdiag shows the nv7300 go card has 128mb ram but in XP it shows 256mb of ram
