Re: Compaq Presario 9538

I did kind of expect the Diagnostic/SETUP disk SP2141 to work as it mentions restoring ' a destroyed ' diagnostics partition http://cwcyrix.duckdns.org/ftp-archives/compaq-extra/pub/softpaq/sp2001-2500/sp2141.exe http://cwcyrix.duckdns.org/ftp-archives/compaq-extra/pub/softpaq/sp2001-2500/sp2141. …

Re: Compaq Presario 9538

If the Compaq software to create the partition didn't work, all by itself, you'll need to boot from a floppy and likely do an 'fdisk /mbr' to write the Master Boot Record onto the SD. Might also need to mark a partition as 'active' in fdisk, too. I created a bootable floppy of the Personal Computer …

Re: Compaq Presario 9538

I finally got the SD adapter and I bought a 16 Gb card for it. There´s a problem though: I don´t know how to boot this thing! :D Win95 bootdisk doesn´t work, Personal Computer Setup doesn´t work, I even tried partitioning and installing OS on another computer but it doesn´t help. I partitioned it …

Re: Compaq Presario 9538

Well, here´s the deal: two months ago I ordered an SD2IDE adapter from some sort of importer in Finland which turned out to be just a rip-off. The order had to be paid in advance but the product never arrived, the guy doesn´t reply to my emails and he´s not returning my money. So I had to order it …

Re: Compaq Presario 9538

This seems like a pretty good page. http://www.driversguru.com/manufacturer/HP-pid-R%3E3762941%3E3763108%3E3763194%3E3768941 If you check the 2nd "Download Now" option for the driver (Not the installer) you can see its linking back to HP's FTP. It may not have an individual page for the 9538 but …

Re: Windows XP refurbish and upgrade

Excited to find this post! I have the exact same motherboard and have been planning on refurbishing it for a while now. I noticed you changed the capacitors in the top—were these the only ones you changed? Did you have any trouble with the board before changing them? Long live the MS-7135! EDIT: …

Re: Windows XP refurbish and upgrade

Here´s a video about the project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWvWRq56v-o This looks really nice! I like the style of how you shot the movie and the angle of filming and the atmosphere of it. The way you cut it is basically showing everything in some kind of minimalistic style, which makes it …

Compaq Presario 9538

Case.jpg This is my friends old Compaq and I´m going to refurbish it for him. However, I could use a little guidance from people wiser than myself :) First, this is what I have to work with: The case is very, very dirty but otherwise it´s in excellent condition, no yellowing or bad scratches, so …

Re: MDK 2 doesn´t start

I have never seen MDK2 cause an issue like this on any of my setups throughout the years and I have played and benchmarked this particular game countless times on way too many configurations. It could very well be the unofficial Service Pack that has caused you headaches. That´s very possible. I´ll …

Re: MDK 2 doesn´t start

Alright, I´ve made my peace with not ever getting my copy of MDK2 working on my retro machine, so be it. However, I did found a way to fix the notorious "Could not load OpenGL sub system" error message for id Tech 3 games. - I re-installed the games, didn´t work - I re-installed DirectX 8, didn´t …

Re: MDK 2 doesn´t start

^^ this It may also work if you throw the opengl32.dll file intom the MDK2 root directory so you can keep the opengl32.dll that works with the idtech games/ others in the windows folder. Or when installing the game DO NOT run the GLsetup, and make sure you set your settings correctly for the …

Re: MDK 2 doesn´t start

MDK2 replaces/corrupts the opengl32 driver in the c:\windows folder if I remember correctly. Backup the opengl32.dll file before playing the first time. ^^ this It may also work if you throw the opengl32.dll file intom the MDK2 root directory so you can keep the opengl32.dll that works with the …
