Santa Cruz sound and NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS display drivers not compatible with windows 7.
Also, Network driver needs recommended action.
I have a Dell Dimension 8100 that was purchased and shipped from Dell on 12/5/2000.
The original 8100 hardware:
Pentium 4, Processor 1.5GHz, 256MB RDRAM,
BIOS Version/Date - Dell A09, 10/2/2001
32MB DDR NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS display adapter,
Turtle Beach Santa Cruz DSP, Sound Card
3Com 3C920 Integrated Fast Ethernet Controller (3C905C-TX Compatible)
The original software was an OEM version of Windows Millennium Edition from Dell.
The only changes in the above configuration are that I have 2GB of RDRAM and the operating system is Windows XP Pro.
The NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS driver date is 7/28/2003 and version is 184.108.40.206.
The Santa Cruz driver date is 4/3/2002 and version is 220.127.116.1161
The 3Com network driver date is 7/1/2001 and version is 18.104.22.168
I ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Report and the following problems were flagged:
I’m not sure but I think that the Microsoft.NET Framework 1.1 problem will go away when I install Windows7.
I have tried to look for new display, sound, and network drivers to resolve the problems that the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor flagged (problems 1, 2, and 3 above). I have not had any luck.
I don’t use the 8100 for gaming. I use it for the internet, Word, Excel, and record keeping.
I’d like to get it running on Windows 7 so I don’t have to get a new PC with Windows 8. I am hoping that the next version of Windows is better than Windows 8.
Please, I need help!!! Are there any drivers that will resolve these problems?? Do I need to get new cards??
Thanks for any and all help, in advance.
