Ok so they do offer licence transfers, they even have an on-line form to do this. But that alone takes time, the free version might need a few more clicks, but otherwise it's hassle free. The graphics driver alone, I must have spent more than an hour on that one yesterday.

Today I went through 1 more box of parts. The box I had completely forgotten but brought it down anyway as it had some some VLB cards in it.
There was nothing really interesting in it, except for a Live! with daughterboard and a couple 8-bit NICs.
And for some reason I found the part number very funny

Really? I thought that was a crappy flash card that never caught on.

I first read it as "Racial InterLAN" which made no sense and I initially thought that was what was meant to be funny until I re-read it.

So I'm not the only one who saw that way at first. 🤣 Actually, I thought that said "Racial Intertan" for a moment.

lmao! Oh well, I should start bringing all those boxes back to the attic soon, it's starting to look like a further progressed game of Sim City here 😵

Goodbye, old non-branded color monitor. You was working for ten years non-stop, but it is time to move on.

Well, it is sad for me, but he is almost done. Every single coil was squealing like hell and if I tried to bang it with my hand, one stopped and another one started. And also it had problems with vertical lock, it had to warm up until it locked. And also, when I got too close to him, my hair started to stand up. Whatever, maybe somebody got him and took home, I know one guy who goes to this recycling center every two hours and he saves old stuff, so maybe.

Hey, me, stop crying!

on windows xp and below use Everest / Aida to get the Hardware ID, then google it...

BTW, the AMD E300 is an APU so you should knew that the drivers are in the AMD site.

And how long is that going to take you? This is basically what this Driver Booster software does, it just does it for you.

Of course I checked the AMD website, come on 🤣 They only have a blurb about contacting the manufacturer of your notebook.

But hey, maybe I couldn't find it, sometimes they are good at hiding links. So if you find the Windows XP drivers for APU E-300 please post it here.

Finding anything that isn't current in AMDs site is weird. Intel and nVidia are much better in this regard. God, even getting stuff from PCChips' old site through the internet archive is easier.

Well, Nvidia's driver archive is not that great IMO. At least I'm not having much luck. I'm working on my own, but it's tedious and manual work. With XP being unsupported this is just going to get worse I think.

Wouldn't be it the way forward to have all the 'better' drivers uploaded to Vogonsdrivers, kinda like that falconfly driverpage? This would be very convenient 😀

Honesly feel like my FTP is a futile exorcise sometimes.

Just for the record, not trying to say shit on anyone here and I'm not going to shut it down. But it does amuse me how I predate Vogons Drivers by quite a margin, will mirror practically everything, have a more accessible system and yet ~95% of my traffic is attempted admin logins from China.

Probably doesn't help that FileWatcher have cold-shouldered me.

The more sites host drivers, the better.

I do like a different layout though, with the drivers on one side and the release notes and supported cards on the other side. So I can quickly scan, or search, the release notes for something. This might not be something many need, but I do.

Does educating my step-daughter about the fine differences of METALS? (I am talking about music, ya'know 😉)
We get along very well, she turned 13 on 14th 😀). As an old metalhead, I am always glad to give advice and opinions to the younger generations.
Poor girl, this weekend I was in a caffeine craze and kept talking about GUS, external MIDI modules, +5, +12, -12v, VGA, DVI, my next project (a DIY 2in-1out 5.1 audio switcher).
Hmm... I think enough Farmerama for her... Need to show her some real games, but... She still too young for Jedi Academy or KoTOR.
