Drivers for Windows XP

February 18th, 2009 No comments

The drivers for your computer have to match the operating system on your machine. This means that changing your operating system would require you to change the drivers of all the computer hardware installed on your computer as well. This is the biggest drawback of updating an operating system in favor of the newly released platforms. Some hardware doesn’t even have drivers for the newer OS versions. Those devices then become unusable unless the manufacturer comes up with a driver update for your new operating system.

Here are some tips about a few popular operating systems:

  • Windows Vista: Although there are many Windows Vista driver downloads available from the Internet, some older hardware proves ineffective under this operating system. If you have one of these devices, you are forced to replace it with something that is compatible with Windows Vista.
  • Windows XP: This  is the most widely used operating system these days. The biggest issue users are encountering with this platform is usually related to the newer LCD monitors. To solve these issues, try visiting the manufacturer’s website and see if they have the Windows XP monitor driver that you need and download it.
  • Other operating systems: You probably won’t find any driver updates for the older Windows 98 software anytime in the future. Most users of Windows 98 have shifted to other operating systems, so manufacturers rarely take time to release Windows 98 driver updates for their hardware. However, Windows 98 driver downloads are still being offered over the Internet today. (A driver download just reinstalls the driver to your computer. It will not update your driver.) The same is true for Windows NT drivers. (Which is much older than Windows 98.) The process of updating, repairing, restoring, and installing drivers under this platform is a little different from the usual steps applied to the later Windows program. If you still have this OS installed on your computer and would need to update some of the drivers for some reasons, it is advised that you read the detailed instructions on how to go about it first.

File Attributes Driver Update

February 12th, 2009 No comments

Each file is stored in a directory and uses an entry that describes its characteristics, including its name and size. The directory entry has a pointer of the file location on the disk. One of the characteristics stored for each file is a set of file attributes that provides information about on the operating system and how they are used.

For instance, the OS records the file’s size, extension, the date it was created as well as when it is recently modified. File permissions are recorded as well. In some cases, other attributes can be changed or added, including comments and other labels.

The use of attributes is manageable, which means that any software application can access the directory entry to check the files’ attributes, allowing them to come up with wise decisions on how to treat the file. For instance, a file management program’s deleting tool that comes across a read-only system file would at least warn the user before deleting it. The following are brief descriptions of each attribute contained by each file and directories.

Read-Only. read-only programs would usually deletion or modification. In some cases, it can still allow users to modify or delete the file, only after confirmation.

Hidden. if the file is marked hidden, then it is hidden from view under normal circumstances.

System. Any file that has this attribute is critical and more serious than that with read-only flag. Such files are not to be altered or deleted from the disk.

Volume Label. All disk volume can have an identifying label. The volume label is stored in the root directory as a file entry along with the label attribute set.

Directory. This is the bit that differentiates between entries that describe files and those that describe subdirectories within the current directory. In theory you can convert a file to a directory by changing this bit. Of course in practice, trying to do this would result in a mess–the entry for a directory has to be in a specific format.

Archive. This is a special bit that is used as a “communications link” between software applications that modify files, and those that are used for backup.

Most of the attributes for files can be modified using the DOS ATTRIB command, or by using third-party software, such as the File Attributes 3.1. This program lets you modify all the attributes of files or directories instead of those that are only shown in file properties.

The program also supports various skins and keeps the position of the windows that were viewed when they are reopened. Compared to its previous version, File Attributes 3.1 has an improved user interface. This software is compatible with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows NT, Windows XP as well as Windows Vista.

File Attributes 3.1 is a disk storage driver update released on February 12, 2009. It comes with a 30-day trial period, but you can purchase its full version for only $9.99.
