Because of a hard-drive failure, I had to reinstall Windows XP SP2. I used to software supplied with the WUBS11 v4.0 to reinstall the wireless manager and drivers. However, the setup program refuses to install. I click "Setup.exe" and it appears the program tries to launch as I see a box appear for about 1 second, then it disappears. So I figured I would try downloading the most recent drivers/wireless management software for the product from the website. So I downloaded the software and I still have the same problem installing from setup.exe. I attempted to update the drivers by pointing to the drivers/WinXp folder, however it will not allow me to click OK on that folder. It does allow be to point to the Drivers folder but says it can not find a better driver than the one installed.
I am able to connect to unsecured and WPA networks, however I cannot connect to WEP. It tries to connect but then gives a Windows error saying it lost connection with the network/network may be out of range. I know I shouldn't even be using WEP encryptions, but this is for my buddy who has an old router. Any ideas on why I can't connect to WEP?

Re: WUSB11 v4.0 - Software Won't Install
The setup.exe might need to be called from another program i.e. autorun.exe, xyz.msi, or another program in the folder with the setup.exe
If that doesn't help then look for folders that contain inf files when pointing the driver updater. only then will the ok button become active.

Hello,Is this the same version of windows you had installed prior to the reinstall? the 1630 is an older laptop and shipped with small hard drives and preloaded with windows 98. Windows XP is much larger than 98 and therefore using all of your hard drive space. Are you able to go to click "my computer" and click on c drive and see how much disk space is left?
Check your motherboard BIOS specs. I know that Windows XP can see a larger hard drive but some BIOS issues could limit the maximum partition. (My XP box started with a small drive but I added a larger SATA drive later and formated it with the XP disc management software. One caveat: I was using SP3)
To expand your partition, try using a third party partitioning software option. These will often save you from having to reinstall the os (sometimes things go wrong but mostly they are good). I've had good luck with Paragon Partition Manager and Partition Magic (before it was purchased by Symantec).
I hope this helps.

Harddisk might have some bad surface areas on it. This could possible due to power surge. Repair the HDD with harddisk tools. To do the repair without the tools try scandisk from the dos promt using boot disk. Reinstall XP with the sp2 and all the softwares that you use. Use repair CD that should do most of the softwares itself and install the others software with the CDs or setup programs on backup disk. Back up all the data before doing the clean install so that you can restore it after clean install.
You need to download all the drivers installer files from manufacturer website first, and also all the software you want to install automatically with Windows. Then you build a Windows Xp boot CD with all the software setup embedded.
I had this problem on a computer recently. This particular motherboard may be needing the driver on the Windows XP SP2 disk. Your motherboard may have been made to use Microsoft SATA drivers. Othewise, there would have been a driver disk that came with the motherboard to let it see that SATA hard drive. If it's a new hard drive, you have to reinstall the O/S so use a disk new enough to have SP2 included.
Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up. The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised). Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen). I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal. Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean. (No need to format). When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later). It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete). You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all. You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation. I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)! Good Luck speedfreak44! If I can help you further, feel free to post. Suggestions & comments welcomed. Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens? One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.

I understand the problem you are going through and it is due to the fact that win xp sp2 install an NTFS filesytem on its hard drive and this file system was designed to be secure in a way that you don't remove disk drive or add disk drives just like that.Now the best solution would be to just reinstall you xp machine with sp2 with the hard drive already in the case.In this way xp will be able to recognize it as one of its own drives and now you will have access to it.
