Drivers for new computers?

50 posts in this topic

Hi everyone.

I was just wondering where you go to find XP drivers for new hardware. For exampel, I have an ATI mobility graphic driver in my computer. However, when I go to ATI:s website, I can't find any XP drivers, only Vista and 7.

So, do you reommend any websites or tools for finding XP drivers on new hardware?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english!

What model notebook do you have?

Most times for Notebooks, all drivers are provided by the notebook manufacturer.

It's an emachines e642g with ati mobility 5650. There are no XP drivers on the manufacturer's website either.

I wonder if there is a website dedicated to mod drivers for XP for newer computers. It would be nice if someone could recommend a website. Would also be good in case I buy a new computer (in the future), so I can put XP on it.

That's why I've never liked ATI. Their driver support is just awful.

Anyway, I haven't tested it myself but you should probably be able to just add your graphic card's hardware ID to the INF file of the "normal" XP drivers and install them. Could you check the hardware ID in the Device Manager?

Which HardwareID matches this graphic card?

Desktop Video Card Drivers 12.8 CX145314.inf matches ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series too.

http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/integrated_xp-32.aspx#1

"%AMD68E1.3%" = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68E1&SUBSYS_254A1458

AMD68E1.3 = "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series"

How do you add your graphic card ID to the normal XP drivers? Is there a tutorial online?

My hardware ID is:

PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1&SUBSYS_036E1025&REV_00

Typical ATI. Here it says "Certified drivers for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP", but they can't be arsed to actually provide them.

Have you checked if they are not included in that 119MB pack on the eMachine site ?

Is it not this one? http://support.amd.c...onaiw_xp.aspx#1 I checked the ID, it's PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1&SUBSYS_5000174B. The SUBSYS isn't the same, but I think that won't be a problem.

It is highly unlikely, but it's worth a shot.

My hardware ID is:

PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1&SUBSYS_036E1025&REV_00

The file 12-8_xp32_dd_ccc\$_OUTDIR\Packages\Drivers\Display\XP_INF\CX145314.inf contains

"%AMD68C1.2%" = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1

"%AMD68C1.1%" = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1&SUBSYS_5000174B

AMD68C1.2 = "AMD Radeon HD 6500M/5600/5700 Series"

PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1 is a generic match for a PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1&SUBSYS_036E1025&REV_00.

There is no need to change the graphic card ID, use the default driver package.

The driver itself may work of fail.

Try default AMD Video Card Driver 12.8 and report the result.

Hello,

Where can I find the drivers for HP Pavilion g6 - 2011 sq, for Windows XP ?

In particular the audio drivers:

Hardware IDs:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2806&SUBSYS_80860101&REV_1000

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2806&SUBSYS_80860101

HP does not support Windows XP on this laptop. I didn't find anything on Intel download center.

Thank you,

Gabriel

@Gabriel -

First, this might be considered hijacking a Topic as your post is about a different hardware. You should have started your own topic.

Second, I searched Intel website for

hd audio

and came up with this -

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=9406&keyword=hd+audio&DownloadType=Drivers〈=eng

I really don't feel like downloading another item I don't need, so you download and look inside it at the INF files to see if any match you required Hardware String.

edit -

This download is valid for the product(s) listed below.

Intel® Desktop Board D915GOM

Intel® Desktop Board D915POM

Yours (after a search) is a notebook (you misdefined it) "HP Pavilion g6-2011sq" (<-no spaces as you showed it). It show only Windows 7 and Windows 8.

EDIT!!! I downloaded the Audio for Win7 - it has TWO folders inside WDM - one is XP and one is Vista (how odd) AND inside the INF files, there's nothing for the Device you list. What makes you think that's it? Why don't you try that Driver?

Unfortunately, those drivers won't work for you.

I'm doing some digging and I might be able to help you.

Until later.

From a Russian website (translated)

http://notebookclub.org/forum/thread-1635-page-5.html

Laptop: Dell Inspiron 17R SE 7720

System: Windows 7 x64, original.

In audio devices have IDT High Definition Audio CODEC to version 6.10.0.6426 driver from IDT (VEN_111D & DEV_76E0) and Audio Intel ® for displays with driver version 6.14.0.3097 from Intel (VEN_8086 & DEV_2806). Drivers taken from http://www.dell.com/support and http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect (a basic version of the Intel graphics driver was higher).

Not having (and never had ATM) any HDAUDIO it looks like TWO things are needed - the Driver and the Codecs.

If you're lucky, Sp0iLedBrAt may be able to help. I apparently can't find anything useful. :(

OK, you need to download this http://downloadcente...oadType=Drivers which is the Video driver for HD 2500, 3000 and 4000.

However, inside there is a folder called "ibxHDMI" which contains an INF file with these IDs

%IntcDAudDeviceDesc% = IntcDAudModel, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2805&SUBSYS_80860101, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2805
%IntcDAudDeviceDesc% = IntcDAudModel, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2806&SUBSYS_80860101, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2806

which are the ones you need.

The package is easy to extract with 7-Zip, WinRAR or whatever you please.

Cheers and please, report back.

EDIT: the answer was the other posts in this topic: nowadays they tend to put a lot of drivers in one package (video, audio, chipset, SATA) and call it a suite; ATI does it, so why not Intel?

Hello,

Thanks for help. It seems that the problem is fixed partially. Sound, video and game controllers are OK, but I still have no sound.

There were 2 devices in fact, the second is Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus:

Hardware Ids:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76D9&SUBSYS_103C183E&REV_1001

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76D9&SUBSYS_103C183E

PS : a lot of devices are not recognised, but the sound is essential.

Thanks,

Gabriel
