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!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
