Re: Video card upgrade for A64 X2 4400+

There is no SP4 for windows XP and is not safe, (possible malware). SP3 is the current service pack at XP's EOL. Reinstall and apply SP2 for resource constrained hardware or SP3. Cheers, There is nothing wrong with unofficial SP4 for XP. It is completely safe and I have been using it for XP for …

Re: Video card upgrade for A64 X2 4400+

Took and did a fresh reinstall of Windows XP Home. Installed all the drivers, SP4 and then reinstalled 3DMark03 without any of the patches. Opened the program and it got to the settings. So I closed the program and installed the V360 patch and then it would freeze on the program loading screen. I …

Re: Video card upgrade for A64 X2 4400+

I recall XP working with Sapphire HD3650 AGP on P4P800 and was both P4 and Pentium M back then when I had to build a set for a guy all up ready to go so they don't have to assemble it and NOT to break it in the process. This was not windows 98se. How did you find the driver for HD3650? If not, this …

Re: Video card upgrade for A64 X2 4400+

So I received my Radeon HD 3650 AGP in the mail finally. Came all the way from Russia! Anyways, trying to track down a driver for XP is a pain the butt. I did find one, but when installing, it failed to install the graphics driver, so I installed it manually and restarted . Everything is fine until …

Re: Problem with Radeon 4870 and Dimension 9200

I have taken and bought a 4890 by MSI on eBay, so once it arrives we shall see it if works or not, I really hope it does. Otherwise …

Re: Problem with Radeon 4870 and Dimension 9200

take the 2x512 out and try. See if we're fighting Dell stupidity. Took out the 2x512 sticks and nothing, tried just 1x1gb nothing, tried 1x512 and still nothing. So I am guessing the video card is dead? The video card arrived just wrapped in bubble wrap, no anti-static bag or anything like that. …

Re: Problem with Radeon 4870 and Dimension 9200

Well you avoided one of the classic blunders "never get involved in a land war in Asia." but check that the back end of the card didn't pop out when you tightened the bracket down, check that you cleared the CMOS, check that you didn't knock any fan connectors off. If you installed more RAM at the …

I am using this to replace …

Re: Got another retro computer!

Back when I was doing onsite warranty repair for Dell, there was at least one instance where they refused to replace the motherboard under warranty because there weren't enough bulging capacitors. The board had at least 4 or 5 that were bulging. The original ticket was for the power supply and I …
