  1. I've just acquired a Dell Optiplex 960 quad core computer with a Seagate SATA hard drive. When I try to install Windows 2000 I get error messages that show it's not recognizing the SATA hard drive...and during the installation it tries to format the hard drive and fails. This computer came with Vista installed and I created a new partition to install Win2000 on. But during the installation the partitions aren't named correctly and called "unformated or damaged". I can boot up into Windows Vista and it's working normally. Are there Windows 2000 SATA drivers for this chipset?
  2. Thanks Tommy, it worked just like you said. After months without sound, how nice to have it back. But what did you mean about "any daily after July's version...will not work with it anymore"? If I install a newer Daily UURollup, will I lose the sound again?
  3. Tommy, I'd like to try "reinstalling UURollup" but I'm not sure if you mean re-installing all of the ones I have installed, or just the last one. And did you uninstall it (or they) first, before you re-installed it. John .NET Framework 1-4 UURollup 1 UURollup 2 UURollup v10d UURollup v11 (weekly 20130323)
  4. Tomasz, I have the latest UURollup v11 (Weekly 20130323) and I'd like to move up to a recent daily version to try to solve a problem (the volume control disappeared and I now have no sound after I tried to install BWC's Ati Radeon Graphic driver 9.4). Of the newest daily versions, which seems to be the most stable? John
  5. That's a good idea, Tomasz, and I just installed the program (Medved Trader) on Windows XP (on the same machine, dual boot) so it should be easy to copy it and run it in Windows 2000. Or even just boot up in Windows 2000 and try to run the main exe file in the XP installation(same computer, different partition).
  6. Tommy, sorry for the confusion with Brooke's (I just didn't see your name above the message body). I wish I didn't need Windows Installer 4.5, but unfortunately a new iteration of my favorite stock market charting program(Quotetracker...now Medved Trader) is being assembled and I offered to help beta test it knowing only that it needed .NetFramework 4.0. After using Application Compatibility Launcher to start the setup, it turned out to need the 4.5 version of the installer, so that's as far as I got. I'm going to see if the programmer wouldn't mind making up a version using WIndows Installer 3.1, just to see if I can get it to run in Win2000...but he and his team are pretty busy making up the new program so I'm not going to count on that. I may finally be forced to use XP regularly. How difficult do you suppose it would be to pop out a version of a program using the earlier installer?
  7. Tomasz, I didn't see your post until just now. Thanks for letting me know that you'd tried Windows Installer 4.5 . Bad luck for me , I guess. I'll probably have to use XP if I want to run that program (Medved Trader).
  8. Brooke's...did you try Windows Installer 4.5 with a UU Rollup newer than the one I'm using? I keep hoping that bwc will show up here and take a stab at this, but I haven't seen him here or in another message thread where I asked for some help with his drivers that I downloaded for an AH3450 graphics card. I guess eventually he'll be around.
  9. Hello again...I'm trying to install a new program (Medved Trader) and the installation has failed at the point that it tried to download and install Windows Installer 4.5 . Is there a way that this version of Windows Installer will work in Windows 2000. I'm using UU Rollup1, UU Rollup 2, UU Rollup v11(weekly 20130323), and .NetFramework 1-4.0 .
  10. Looking at bwc's blog (http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/571484.html ) I see that the file I downloaded (9.4 release 2) is for HD3650/3450agp . I believe the HD prefix was used(HD3450) for the pci-express version, whereas AH3450 was used for the AGP version. So I'm still confused by this. Also, the next file listed is 9.5a(release2)(AGP Fix) and I wonder if what it fixed could be related to my failed installation. Anyone know the answer to this?
  11. Hi blackwingcat, I searched my registry but couldn't find anything about the vendor id or device id. But if you've read the previous post about my troubles, you know that I failed with the installation of my Asus AH3450 agp card. I un-installed it and re-installed the older card (ATI Radeon 7500), which left me with no volume control (and no volume). So perhaps uninstalling the failed installation removed the vendor and device id from the registry. Later...I just found someone (who has the same card) identifying it as device id: 95C6 (or 0x95c6 ) . Asus is the only one who made an AGP version of the AH3450. I think the Asus id is: Vendor 0x1043 - ASUS I'm also reading (from the same conversation: (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-90983.html) that ATI only made drivers for the PCI-Express version of the AH3450. The PCI-Express device id is 0x95c5 . Perhaps your AH3450 drivers are from ATI and therefore only for the PCI-Express version of this card. Or are they from Asus? John
  12. Thanks jaclaz, it didn't work but it's good to know about that.
  13. Well, all kinds of problems after installing the AH3450 drives from bwc(blackwingcat). The basic one is that the device isn't working and the error message is "the device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device (Code 31). The AH3450 was shown in Device Manager, no yellow exclamation mark. I checked the drivers installed, there were many, and I could match at least 8 with those in the zip file from bwc. As far as I could tell, they were all working even though the error message and reality says otherwise(I was stuck in low resolution mode). I replaced the AH3450 card with my original one and after rebooting the AH3450 was gone from the Device Manager, even though I never removed or disabled it. You'll see why that's not good because the other problem is that I now have a no sound condition, and when I try to open the Volume Control I get an error message that "there are no active mixer devices available, you may install mixer devices from Add/Remove etc..." There is also no vol control icon in the lower right task bar, and in Control Panel/Sounds and Multimedia, the Sound Volume slider is pegged on low and greyed out, as is the box to show volume control on the task bar. Checking in Device Manager, under Legacy Audio Drivers, there are 33 mixer devices and the ones I checked were all said to be working properly...and no yellow exclamation marks anywhere. I uninstalled the integrated sound card, rebooted and reinstalled it. Still the no sound problem. Now, I'd like to make sure the AH3450 drivers are uninstalled but as I mentioned they've disappeared from Device Manager. So I'm stuck and if anyone has any suggestions for fixing or troubleshooting these problems, I'd sure appreciate them. John
  14. Hi everyone...I'd like to ask for some basic directions for installing drivers for my Asus AH3450 AGP card. I've downloaded from BlackWingCat the zip file for ATI Radeon 2009/06/05 version 9.4(release 2), but other than the obvious .inf files inside, I don't see any kind of setup file to start with. And there's a sub-directory full of files with .dl_ and .sy_ extensions, and other files, that I'm not sure what to do with. How would I proceed with this installation? I'm using Windows 2000 SP4 with Update Rollup 1, Unofficial Update Rollup 2, and Unofficial Update v11 (weekly 2013/03/23). And .NET Framework 1-4. Also, do I need to uninstall the current driver(s) for the Radeon 7500 card first? Or can I have drivers for both cards installed at the same time? John
  15. tomasz, you pointed me in the right direction when you mentioned using 16 colour palette. I checked the Win2000 installation that didn't have this problem...it was set to High Color (16 bit). Then checked the new installation and found it was set to 256 colors. Changed that back to High Color (16 bit) and the problem(s) went away. Dots are gone, photos look normal. It's nice to have a simple solution! Thanks to both of you for helping out. John
