Apple :: Installing XP With ACPI Uniprocessor Driver

May 3, 2009

I have 3 old games that run super fast in XP, and I've read that a common fix seems to be running in Uniprocessor mode. XP only installs the ACPI Multiprocessor driver, and I can't change it. I can only select ACPI Multiprocessor, or Standard PC, and when I changed it to Standard PC I lost my keyboard and mouse (and subsequently had to reinstall XP).

Is there any way to either tell Bootcamp to disable one core, or to install XP with the Uniprocessor driver?

I'm running the early 2009 white macbook, and XP Home SP3.

HP/Compaq :: Faulty Processor On My DV6812NR- XP Will Only Install With ACPI Uniprocessor HAL

Feb 19, 2009

I just picked up a HP DV6812NR notebook. It has a AMD Turion 64 X2 processor (TL-60, 2.0GHZ). It's a barely used refurb model that the guy was selling because he couldn't get the OS to install. I bought it off him cheaply hoping it was just a software issue.

This model has an IDE hard drive so there was no need to slipstream SATA drivers into my XP install CD. However the XP install would not work right away. It successfully formatted the partition and copied files, but would hang after the installation reboot.

After a bit of research I tried selecting a different HAL by pressing F5 as the XP setup loaded. Funnily enough if i selected ACPI uniprocessor PC, the installation did complete. However unsurprisingly, XP then only saw one processor in task manager, and performance seemed just a little funky.

Does this suggest a bad processor? If so that wouldn't be the end of the world as I could probably pick up another TL-60 for around $100. Even cheaper I could pick up a Turion 64 X2 TL-50 (1.6 GHz). Any reason that lesser processor wouldn't work in this machine? What would the performance hit be like if this notebook is to be primarily used for watching movies and surfing the net?

Dell :: Uninstall Current Driver Before Installing New One?

Jan 16, 2009

I've found out there's newer drivers for my Studio laptop for webcam, wireless, etc.

I updated the BIOS and it went fine. My question is do I have to uninstall current driver before installing new one? On Dell web site, they only give general instructions and don't mention this.

If I install new driver over the old one, will I have 2 versions and can go back (in device manager) if the new driver doesn't work as well

HP OS/Software :: Installing Wireless Driver On Envy 17 1195eo?

Mar 31, 2011

I just got at new envy and wanted to reinstall windows 7, to get rid of all the preinstalled software.

After I reinstalled, windows 7 wasn't able to download the drivers it self so i had to do it manually. So I did and now i got two problems.

#1:I can't install my wireless network driver. I tried installing the driver on the website but without result. I can see the network card in the device manager though, as a unknown device called network controller. I've tried removing it, but that didn't work either.

#2:I can't get my volume up/down buttons too work. That's the only two quick buttons that doesn't work. I got the audio beats button working too.I tried installing the media packages on the hp website after reading on a website that this could be the problem, but i wasn't able to install the packages. The pc just opens the setup files, but after extracting nothing happens.

Dell :: Installing Latest Nvidia Notebook GPU Driver On New M4400...

Feb 19, 2009

I just received a refurbished M4400 and had no problem changing it to the A03 bios.

When I tried to install the latest Nvidia 179.48 notebook gpu driver (for Windows XP -32 bit), I get the following message...

"The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatable with your current hardware. Setup will now terminate."

Can anyone tell me why this gpu driver will not load? Do I have to do something different in order to get this driver to be accepted by this M770 business gpu?

HP Networking :: G7 / Can't Find Wireless Adapter / Installing Driver Doesn't Work

Sep 7, 2014

I recently had to open up my HP G7 laptop to blow the dust of my fan and under the keyboard. When I put they keyboard back together, my wifi didn't work. I'm now on a ethernet connection. Opening network connection, there's no wifi adapter icon. I've tried installing the driver, but mid install I get this message "The driver files you wish to remove will not be removed as the corresponding card is not installed". I don't know what this means, but when I finish the install, the wireless connection is still not shown in network connections, and the driver doesnt show on device manager. What else can I try?

yesterday my E330 arrived with no operating system installed. After the Windows 7 Ultimate installation was finished I was already disappounted, because no driver was detected.

Tried both, the realtek and the broadcom driver, none of them is working. Can't conntact the support because the page won't load. After a few hours of trying to fix the problem I dont know what to do anymore.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y560 ATi / AMD Driver Not Installing Properly / Card Not Visible In Device Manager

Feb 5, 2014

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 which had both Intel and AMD drivers installed correctly, switchable graphics was also functioning properly.
 
The problem started when I tried to update the 2010 AMD driver with the latest one (2011) on the officail Lenovo site. The install seemed to run through, but informed me that there were warnings during the installation. I opened the linked log file, but it did not include any errors or warnings, only that the installation ran through successfully.
 
As the driver version still showed that it was the 2010 driver which is installed, I uninstalled the driver, and tried to install the 2011 driver again after a reboot. It once again said that the installation was successfull, but with warnings (still no warning in the log file). When I tried to check the driver version, it turned out that the AMD graphics card is not visible in the device manager, not even as an unrecognised device.
 
I then tried to install the old 2010 driver (the original driver installation files were already on my D: drive upon delivery), but got the same results as with the 2011 driver.
 
Removing any AMD/ATi related programs did not work either, I still get a "finished" installation with warnings, and a log file without warnings or errors.
 
OS is Windows 7 (64bit)

GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 (+Intel HD...)

Switchable graphics is turned on in BIOS.
 
how I could get the system to recognise the attached ATi graphics card, or at least realize that it is there?

Dell Studio 1737 :: ACPI Event ID 13 - EC Did Not Respond Within Specified Timeout Period

Mar 14, 2013

I have a Studio 1737 running Windows Vista Home Service Pack 2. I'm running the latest BIOS and all of my drivers are up to date.

When the AC adapter is unplugged and I'm running on battery power  the whole system lags. It also turns of when unplugged without warning after about 15 minutes.

Also, I get these error messages in my event viewer a couple of times an hour:

Log Name: System

Source: ACPI

Event ID: 13

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

I'm guessing these are all connected.
