Compaq Presario V2623TS originally released during Windows XP Era and comes with Free DOS No further support for Windows Vista or Windows 7 by Hewlett Packard. This model best with a 32-bit operating system since it only support only up to 2GB DDR2 SDRAM 333MHz. By default, only 256Mb RAM installed wit 60GB DMA ATA HDD. So f you plan to upgrade into Windows 7 here are the drivers you will need.

Recommended Operating System :
Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 32-bit. Don't Install 64-bit operating system because 64-bit require 4GB of RAM, If you did installed 64-bit it will decrease your V2623TS performance.

Older Intel Graphic Installation (XPDM) For Windows 7

There are 2 types of Intel graphics for Windows 7 which is WDDM and XPDM. WDDM drivers or Windows Display Driver Model display 3D graphical user experience and support aero. On the other hand Windows XP Driver Model (XPDM) only delivers interface that resembles Windows XP and do not support aero feature with other limited functionality. The XPDM drivers available for the following older Intel Graphics:

Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family
Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family
Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller
Intel® 82852/82855 Graphics Controller
Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller
Intel® 82815 Graphics Controller Intel® 82810 Graphics Controller

The graphics above is categorize as  XPDM while WDDM only available from Intel 945 Express Chipset Family and Above.

Does XPDM Drivers Work With Windows 7?
It will not work, by default Windows 7 will only install Standard VGA drivers which provide basic display. The most common problem is user will not be able to get the maximum resolution and poor gaming performance.

Installing Older Intel Graphic In Windows 7.
There are several Method to install older graphic driver in windows 7. There are no one click setup method. You are require to perform several steps to install it. There are several method you can use to install it. I already wrote the instructions with picture for certain graphic drivers, you can also use the same method and drivers to install you older Intel graphic in Windows 7:

Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML : Tutorial Link
Intel® 82852/82855 Graphics Controller : Tutorial Link
Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller : Tutorial Link

There will be not further development/support for this model which means Intel will not continue to develop new drivers for this graphics either for XPDM or WDDM.

Dell OptiPlex GX260 Windows 7 Drivers

Dell only released Windows XP drivers for this model, so after installing Windows 7 the main problem with the drivers is the Audio and Graphic/Video. The solution for this problem is to use Windows Vista Drivers for the audio (Realtek AC97) and Windows XP drivers for the Graphic.

Audio Drivers
The Original Drivers for this model is ADI 198x, but it won't install using windows xp drivers in compatibility mode. So, after several research and test, this drivers worked.

Realtek AC 97 Audio Drivers
Date : 06/19/2009
Version :6.0.1.6305
Download

Installation:
Extract the driver file and run "setup.exe" to install.


Graphic
Intel 82845 Graphic Controller / 845 Graphic Series
You must install the graphic driver manually via device manage> I already write a brief instruction for this installation with pictures. Just go to this URL :http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2014/08/intel-82865g82845g-windows-7-drivers.html and read METHOD 2: Manual Installation


Chipset
Intel always provide the latest chipset drivers and it support all chipsets. Just simply download the INF utility from ntel download page here:

Do let me know if you have problems with the driver installation.

Synaptic Touchpad Driver for Windows 8/8.1

Official Release by Synaptic
Synaptics released new drivers version (17.0.19) which compatible with Windows 8/7/XP/ and Windows Vista. This driver package also support both 32-bit and 64-bit. Before we proceed with the installation ,Synaptic does ask users to check from the manufacturer website first, example if you have a HP notebook, you can check if HP provide Windows 8 drivers for your synaptic touchpad. Ssynaptic released generic drivers which may result in the loss of OEM-costumized Synaptic Pointing device functionality. So, it is strongly recommend to set a restore point which is a quick way to rollback to the previous driver you already have.

Released By Notebook Manufacturer:

Acer : Download
Hewlett Packard (HP/Compaq) : Download
Lenovo : Download
Sony (Vaio) : Download

Notes!:
Synaptic Pointing device or Synaptic Touchpad available on most laptop. Even some laptop uses ALPS Touchpad but the numbers of notebook that uses ALPS is lower than synaptic. There are also several other synaptic Touchpad device such as Elantech. It is important to make sure you have the synaptic touchpad not ALPS or other. This is because some models do have variant, means if you own a Acer 4623 (example), you may see Acer provide 2 downloads for ALPS ans Synaptic touchpad. So we can say Acer 4623 Variant 1 uses Synaptic and the other variant uses ALPS.

HP Compaq nx9030 Windows 7/XP Drivers

HP only released windows xp drivers for this model. If you plan to upgrade into Windows 7, you will see certain drivers not installed since most hardware (from Intel) no longer support Windows 7. So here  I posted the drivers you will need for Windows 7. For windows xp, there are some drivers not listed on HP download site, normally if a driver not listed mean it is automatic or not required, but I doubt that so I added drivers for graphic and chipset (the driver for graphic and chipset for Windows xp is available on HP database but it just not listed for nx9030.) If you want to see the driver released from HP, just go to the Hp support and select - support - drivers - Laptops - HP compaq Notebook PC - HP 9000 and you will see nx9030 is on the list.  The original drivers released is similar from what I listed here, only the graphic and chipset is missing form the download list.

Some Notes:
1. Base on my experience with notebook audio drivers, If it using Conexant audio, it rewuire MS-UAA to be installed first. If your windows XP audio installation failed you may need to install MS-UAA first, you can download it here.
2. Graphic driver for windows 7 Requires several steps to install, but you can try manual installation (the same method to install audio) using your original windows XP drivers.
3. If you don't use your Fax modem, you can skip the modem installation.

How to Identify Webcam Using PID Code

The PID Code is a Line of code which we use to identify our webcam device. Each webcam has it own unique PID code, and by using this code we can determine which drivers we need to install.

How to Check Webcam PID Code:
1. Fist open device manager.
2. Now look for "webcam device", it is normally located under the imaging device.  The name may varies depend on your webcam and model.




The picture above shows HP webcam listed, and there are no yellow mark on it means the drivers already installed. If the driver not yet installed normally you will see a yellow mark and sometimes it listed other device like picture below:



3. Right click on it and select properties. Then, select details and on the drop down menu select Hardware ID's.




4. Look at the picture above, the whole Line is the Hardware ID, the PID code is part of the Hardware ID. It start from PID and ended before & sign. From the picture above:

Hardware ID : USB\VID_064E&PID_A1116&REV_0313&MI_00
PID CODE: PID_A1116


How To Use PID code to identify/Download Drivers for The Webcam

There 2 ways you can identify your webcam device and download the proper drivers.

1. By downloading from the manufacture download site.

Example you have an Asus A42JC, so we go to the download site and we will see lots of webcam driver listed, and we need to select one base on the PID code that matches the PID code displayed on the download site.

2. If you manufacturer does not list out the hardware ID or PID code for your webcam, we just need to Google the hardware ID to find out the right webcam driver. Example if you have an Acer 1810T and on the download site there are 3 drivers listed:


So to choose the right driver first we must obtain the PID code.

If Hardware ID is:
USB\VID_04F2&PID_B175&REV_1357&MI_00

So the PID Code is : PID_B175

Now if we Google the PID code the result would be:




From the search result the right webcam driver is chicony. If you have problem do let me know.

How to Open Device Manager

Intel 82830M Graphics Drivers Installation For Windows 7

There is no driver for Windows 7 released by Intel or any other 3rd party website. So, in this post I will show how to install Intel(R) 82830M driver in Windows 7.

Before start:
- If you already have any Intel Graphic extreme system tray installed,  uninstall it first.
- If you success install the driver using the method I describe below, but the driver uninstall itself after restart, disable your internet connection during the whole installation process. 
- the driver in this tutorial is from Fujitsu, you are responsible to comply with the T&C if you are using this driver for other model. The best way is to download the driver released by Intel on any website that distribute the driver. Since the download link changes, I'm unable to provide one from Intel, I only have the link from Fujitsu and Nec Versa website.

1. Download Intel driver version 6.14.10.3741, you can Google it or use the driver below:

Intel 830M/845 Graphic Drivers
File Name :ST4110,ST4120,ST4121_VIDEO_INTEL_V6.14.10.3741_XP.exe
Version 6.14.10.3741
File Size : 5MB
Description: This driver design for Intel 82830M and 82845.
Download Link From Fujitsu:Download (exe)
Download Link From Nec Versa : Download (zip)

The driver already tested on one of the Dell Machine and worked

2. Extract the driver we downloaded earlier. For this tutorial I make folder in desktop and name it as Intel and extract the driver in that folder. If you use the driver from Fujitsu, you need Winrar software to extract the driver file. Remember the path of the extracted driver folder, we will need it later.


3. Open device manager by click start and type DEVMGMT.MSC and press enter.


2. Look for Video Controller Marked with yellow, right click on it and select update driver:


3. Select Browse my computer for Driver software.

4. Click Browse and Point to the driver folder we extracted earlier.

 It is important to select the right folder so it will found the driver inf file.
Note that the driver inf  file (file that required for driver installation) is in Win2000 folder, so it is better to browse to that folder. In this example I extracted the driver file on a folder on desktop so the location will be: c:\User\YouComputerName\Desktop\Inte\ST4110,St4120.ST4121_VIDEO_INTEL_V6.14.10.3741-XP
(look at the picture below).


5. After clicking next, the installation will begin and will take few minutes to finish. Don't worry if it take too long, it is normal. After installation finish reboot your system. If it prompt to reboot, please do so.

6. After reboot, you wait until you see a pop up message "new hardware found" or "Installing device software" or similar, just click on it.


7. Wait until the round circle gone (installation finish). reboot once again. (Force reboot if windows prompt something)



8. Wait until  you see a pop-up like in step 6 and click on it.


9. Another installation will take place. Reboot once again util installation finish and reboot once again. (at first it will only show "Intel(R) 82830M Graphic Controller, but latr you will see it will install all driver component needed as you see in the picture below). One driver will not installed (see picture) but ignore it.



Now your graphic should be listed on device manager as Intel(R) 82830M Graphics Controller and this means you are successfully installed the graphic drivers.

Additional Notes:
1. What to do if the driver uninstall itself after reboot?
-Turn off Internet, try different driver version or try with your original windows XP Driver.

2. Is there any other method to install this driver, yes, there are different method availble for example you cn read it here:
http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2014/08/intel-82865g82845g-windows-7-drivers.html

Do let me know the results along with your notebook model, your feedback could help others.

Intel® 82865G/82845G Windows 7 Drivers

Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Windows 7 Driver

Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller Driver For Windows 7

notes: make sure you follow the instructions carefully:
compile by: Lexxion
edited by: Black x

for expert you can skip certain part, because there are many different level of users, i compose this post in details.

IMPORTANT!
make sure you log in to you pc as administrator/use administrator account

Content:
Part 1: Download and extract driver
Part 2: Uninstall current driver
Part 3: EDIT c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys
Part 4: EDIT c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys part 2
Part 5: Final Step
FIX screen Rotation



PART 1: DOWNLOAD AND EXTRACTING DRIVERS

1. Download the drivers:

Intel(R) Graphics Controller 6.14.10.3722 (Windows)
Download (direct link)
Download (cnet)

(link fixed, but i'm not hosting this file, so if it got deleted you just google for the file name, i saw many site provide the download links)

Update 1 : july 2016 - It was reported by using version  6.14.10.3722 (direct link download), you can directly skip Step 1-4 and directly proceed with step 5 (extract the driver file and install manually using device manager). However I do believe it might not work with certain models but worth to try.

Newer version: v6.14.10.4497 - Download
Fix resolution 1200 x 800
Able to run latest Intel Extreme 2 System Tray - as reported by anonymous
.
2. here  files is in zip format, you need to extract it, i suggest for beginner to make your work easier, make a folder in desktop named intel graphic (right click on desktop and select new folder, type Intel Graphic)


3. Paste the driver you download on the Intel Graphic folder you just created, right click on the Intel_6_14_10_3722.zip you extracted and select extract here, it should look like this: (NOTE;: please remember where you extract the driver, you will need it later)
proceed to part 2.



PART 2: UNINSTALL CURRENT DRIVERS

1. If you already installed other driver and failed (if you don't skip part 2), you will find yellow mark on the device manager, right click on it and select uninstall. Your Device Manager should say that you have Standard VGA Driver installed under Display category and exclamation mark on "video controller". Make sure you restart PC when asked.


PART 3: EDIT c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys

1.Click 'Start' and in 'Search' type 'cmd'. The result will show on top. Right-click on 'cmd' and choose "Run as Administrator". If your account does not have admin rights you might be prompted to enter username and password. I used account that already has administrator privileges.



2. The type or copy/paste the following line (pics below): 
              takeown /f c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys


3. Press enter and the result will be success etc, refer to picture above. (the username are differ so your line might differ from the screenshoot)

4. Then type or copy and paste this line:
  cacls c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys /G peter:F

IMPOTANT: at line above you must replace!! peter with your computer name, how to check your computer name, click start and note under the pictures it show your pc name, look at the picture below:




above note my pc name is ajis
so my line will be


  cacls c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys /G ajis:F

, after that type it on your cmd (look at pics below after press enter

 There will be a confirmation message so type 'y'



PART 4: EDIT c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys


1. Open c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys right click and select open or open with.



 2. choose second option on the radio button "select program from a list of installed programs "


3. then select notepad




4. Just add any character to the begining of the text. Let's say we will add character x . So the text should start with xMZ and the rest of stuff. Save the file. This edit will render that file unusable.

example before we add text it should look like this:




after adding text it should look like this




PART5: FINAL STEP

1.First open device manager by click start and  type devmgmt.msc as shown in the pictures below.


2. In Device Manager uninstall Standard VGA Adapter.


3. It will prompt you to restart so do it.

4.After install you will see a message saying that certain devices did NOT installed successfuly, which is GOOD :).

5.Go to Device Manager and you should see the exclamation point next to "video controller" and "video controller (vga compatible)". Right-click on "video controller (vga compatible)" and SELECT update driver.


6.Choose "Browse my computer for the Driver Software" .

7. Then select browse:


 8. Then notice that in part 1 i suggest you extract the driver in new folder (folder name: intel graphic). After click browse point to the folder. expand by click the small arrow button until you find the win2000.





9. Wait for the driver to be installed. It might hang for a little (It will say that window is "not responding"). Do not worry as this is still installing the driver. It will prompt you to restart so do it. (If it does not prompt click anywhere and wait for message). After restart it will finish installing the driver.

10. Open c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys in any text editor. Remove the first character you put there which was x. Save the file. it should look like this before saving it (MZ - ignore other character)



Your file will be usuable again :). You can stop here if you want, but if you want to restore the permissions for the file to original state:

Right-click on any other file in the c:\windows\system32\drivers. Choose "Properties". Go to "Security" tab. Now compare that security tab with the security tab of c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys. Just make sure the security tabs of those two files look the same (all tabs and advanced options). In order to add "TrustedInstaller" it is not the same as regular usernames because it is a service.
You will need to type "NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller" (without quotes) when adding it to own the file and to have all permissions. Once you done editing you can delete your account from c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys, because it was not there from the beginning. We took control over and the previous commands added it by default.
 

SCREEN ROTATION FIX:

1. Open registry editor by click start and tyoe REGEDIT.EXE and press enter.
2. Look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - - SOFTWARE - - Intel - - CUI
DISPLAY1 - EnableRotation - set value to 1

Lenovo IdeaPad Z380, Z480, Z580 Drivers for Windows XP/7/8/8.1

All drivers officially released by Lenovo, I re-make the driver list base on installation order and add more details on the description. Lenovo provide support for Windows XP, 7, 8 and 8.1 for this model so it is not recommended to use Windows Vista.
This drivers also support all Ideapad Z Series.

Windows 8 Users Please Read This First!

  • USB 3.0 : If you upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 8 (not a clean installation), Uninstall USB 3.0 Drivers first or the USB port will not function properly. Windows 8  and 8.1 have its' own native driver for USB 3.0. Failed to Uninstall before the upgrade process will forbid Windows 8 to install the compatible drivers. 

  • Boot Time : Don't expect Windows 8 boot time is faster than Windows 7, the only way to increase your boot time is to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology. But remember, Intel Rapid Storage Technology originally build for Windows 7. 

  • Synaptic Touchpad : If after installing the touchpad drivers resulting in error (somehow there are uers report about this issue), download and install the latest drivers released by synaptic here.
