Ffs Xp Suxors


= Indy =


I some probs with XP not all hardware related but mostly, so here goes:

I recently fresh installed Win XP on my PC. (previously Win2000)

Since then, I find my TV out will NOT work (cant watch DVD's on me telly) :mad:

My gamepad wont calibrate or work properly in games
(Its old and crappy, but worked fine under Win2k)

Counter-Strike continuously crashes when I return to the desktop and locks up the PC. (I lose icons and cant get to Task Manager, can only reset machine)

Here's me specs:

P3 1ghz cpu
512mb sdram
Intel 815 chipset mobo
AC 97 sound (onboard)
G-Force 2 Ti 64mb w/tvout
56k modem
10/100 Ethernet
40gb Hard Drive

Nuthin' amazin, but everything worked fine under Win2000

I'm currently using 23.11 video drivers (also in 2k without probs)

Any ideas guys? Or have I gotta "Roll Back" to good ole 2000?

Cheers :D

OK, gonna basically answer my own question here! LoL :D

I found a few other posts which said they had problems with the 23.11 video drivers, so I updated to the 23.12's and whatdaya know, TV out is now working! :D
Hopefully my games will not crash out now either.
Gamepad still sux tho', but hey, cant have it all i guess!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
