    This is an easy to use software. you can only create a backup for your 40GB hard disk but cannot transfer it to the new one.

How to get windows 8 IBM 8187 QKG?


Get windows 8.1 from a retail store or online at Amazon.com or Newegg.com - Make sure to get the 32bit version of Windows 8.1.
The fact that your computer is a pentium 4 at 3Ghz and may not support the 64bit version of windows 8.1 - Or you can get the version of 8.1 that is both 32bit and 64bit. About 100 dollars starting price.

I got an IBM thinkcentre m50 8187 and i got no sound ! Just installed windows and no sound ! Cadenza software did not help ! What now exactly ?


~To download the manufacturers and therefore correct drivers or specific software;

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the ibm.com web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.
