  2. thx 4 all, but no bluetooth driver?? i don't found it

    ReplyDelete
  3. Note that there are 4740 model and 4740G model, if i give the link for bluetooth and after you install, it may make you got BSOD blue screen and need to reformat if you use 4740, the bluetooth driver i got ony got 4740G, i will upload this saturday because i have problems with internet connection.
    If you sure you have bluetooth, open device manager, look for the devices with yellow, right click on it select properties and select details, on the dropdown menu select hardware ID and post it here.

  14. ok,I am not a "hit and run" poster :p

    anyway I want to make a revision about the wireless driver of the 4740 (not 4740G,because I have not try to install win xp on it).

    I have try to install the wireless driver from your link, but there is some anomaly,which is listed below :
    1. the wireless connection can't turned off
    2. the wireless driver is missing in the device manager,such as there is no such wireless adapter on it.

    but when I install the Atheros AR5B93,everything is works fine!!!

    There is another problem, that the brightness hotkey is doesn't works. So, I manage the brightness control using Dim Screen or perhaps you guys can manage it also using volumemouse.

    Atheros AR5B93 windows xp :

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi there, im guessing you are using windows XP.
    For your audio install this driver:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?2myn4mgzing

    For your SMbus install this driver:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?dtw3tz2ejyk

    for your vga i believe is Nvidia not intel, which you can download the driver here:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?zdngzmryotj

    If you believe you are using intel graphic go here:
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ and select automatically detect my graphic drivers.

    Second option is you can give me your hardware ID.
    Open device manager, right click on devices with yellow and select properties, select details. there you will found hardware ID, copy the hardware ID and post it here for all devices with yellow.

    report back the progress.

  50. Hi Rohit,
    normally its cause by your system (corrupted) and need to repair or reinstall windows/ or it also from hardware itself. try to reinstall the driver again, but if it didn't solve the problems try system restore:
