You can turn on automatic updating from control panel which will install updates at a time of your choice or you can do it immediately from there as well.
Or go to microsoft website and download the drivers.

You can also go to control panel, performance & maintenance, system, device manager and update drivers from here as well.

How to Slipstream Drivers on Windows XP using WINNT.SIF


So you have already slipstreamed Service Pack 3 using one of the many tools available I prefer Autostreamer v1.0.33 Its Autopatchers little brother and takes the legwork out of uncompressing and recabbing. I then tend to integrate WMP11 using boooggy's slipstreamer this allow then installation of all associated WMP11 hotfixes.

When all this has been done its a good idea to slipstream all the post SP3 hotfixes to the I386 folder and also copy the WINNT.SIF file that you have created to perform an unattended install with drivers.inf files.

One of the best update packs available is Xables the latest version is v2.0.2 (August 2010) download link HERE this what the pack includes History at the point of posting August 2010 its stands at around 219 post SP3 hotfixes its only missing about 12 hotfixes mainly NET. Framework Service Pack fixes. Plus 12 optional updates you will need to go to the update website to get those if you really want them, or here is a list so you can google them

  1. Update for Windows XP (KB961118)
  2. Update to .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 for the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 x86 (KB963707)
  3. Security Update for Jscript 5.8 for Windows XP (KB971961)
  4. Update for Windows XP (KB976662)
  5. Security Update for Windows XP (KB981332)
  6. Microsoft Browser Choice Screen Update for EEA Users of Windows XP (KB976002)
  7. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982168)
  8. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000 and Windows XP (KB979906)
  9. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP x86 (KB979909)
  10. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982524)
  11. Security Update for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB983583)
  12. Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP (KB2183461)
When you have installed this you are ready to copy your WINNT.SIF file to the I386 folder and create the drivers folder in your Windows Source Folder, then use Signets DriverGrabber v0.51b on your existing installation to get all the INF DLL and EXE files that you will need for your driver folders

Create an $OEM$ folder and place inside it a folder called $1 and then another inside that called Drivers then a folders for each driver make sure that you number then to ensure that chipset is always first.

001_chipset <-----this must be first
002_LAN
003_audio
004_display
005_monitor
006_modem
007_USB
008_ <------
more folders you need to add to the OemPNPDriverPaths

these are the paths that I have specified in the WINNT.SIF relevant section, you MUST add these lines in the [Unattended] section OR it will fail on you. !!!!

NOTE: The OemPnPDriversPath can't search sub-folders to all the files that Driver Grabber will give you will have to copied them to the relevant numbers root folders, and remove the subfolders for each driver remember that each path is separated by a semi-colon

DON'T
add an extra semi-colon at the end, it might fail !!!

OemPnPDriversPath=\Drivers\001_chipset\;\Drivers\002_LAN\;\Drivers\003_audio\;\Drivers\004_display_2003\;\Drivers\004_display_2004\;\Drivers\005_monitor\;\Drivers\006_modem\;\Drivers\007_USB\
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
UpdateInstalledDrivers = Yes <---- this line is critical to make sure

All you need to do to complete this process is change these two sections to suit your OEM Licence and Owner Details.

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword="" <------- this can be encrypted using sysprep
EncryptedAdminPassword=No
OEMSkipRegional=1
TimeZone=85
OemSkipWelcome=1
ProfilesDir="C:Documents and Settings" <------ you can change this

[UserData]
ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
FullName="your name"
OrgName="your organization"
ComputerName=your computer <----- note that there are no "." on this



FINAL NOTE: if you are using OOBE.INI in the either the $OEM$\$$\system32\oobe folder OR a cabbed (use Compression Bin by Jcarle) to create the OOBE.IN_ in the I386 folder, to set up new users (max 6 admins only) then make sure that you don't use these three lines in your WINNT.SIF to avoid any setup errors on the Out of Box Experience.

[Data]
AutomaticUpdates=yes

[Unattended Section]
AutoActivate = Yes


OR you will get a Out of Box Experience Error after the install as these skip the Create User Accounts and Set Up Internet Screens

e07da17.jpg

If you have any other problems add these sections to your OOBE.IN_ and WINNT.SIF files that you have in your slipstreamed I386 folder

WINNT.SIF
[Unattended]
UnattendSwitch
= Yes

[Display]
AutoConfirm = 1

OOBE.IN_
[
StartupOptions]
Offline = 1
Registration = 1
ScreenResolutionCheck = 0

[Options]
IntroOnly = 0
NoIspPreconfig = 1
JoinDomain = 0
AdminPW = 0
SkipAutoUpdate = 1

[UserInfo]
Identity000="You"

remember to keep your OOBE.INI file so that you can edit it before you cab it with compression bin or makecab.

Code 28 driver for xp


Microsoft Help and Support says that "Code 28 (The drivers for this device are not installed)" appears when the Windows Sound System Compatible Driver for the Windows 2000 operating system is deleted upon the upgrade to Windows XP. It's possible to repair this code.

Click on "Start." On the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel." In the "Control Panel" folder, click on "Performance and Maintenance." Click on the "System" folder in the "Performance and Maintenance" folder. Click on the tab titled "Hardware." Click on the box that says "Device Manager." Click on "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers." Right-click on the device that prompts Windows XP to display Code 28 (it should be Windows Sound System Compatible Driver, also called the WDM driver). A drop-down menu will appear. Click on "Update" and an Update Wizard will guide you through the installation of a new device driver, which should stop Code 28 from appearing on Windows XP.
or
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question / exclamation? ! mark or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers If your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it or you might download slimdrivers. Rather doing a driver hunt http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers This is a free driver solutions which will automatically search for and find the correct driver You will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point. Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated. It might take some time being free

I need the software disk or a download site for installing a LexMark Z611 on a new computer.


This is what I did to find the driver necessary to install your printer to a new computer:

1: Visit Lexmark's Driver Download Site.
2: In the section that reads, "Download by Product" type in: Z611
3: Click the image/link of your printer (might take a moment to appear above the text-area).
4: Scroll down and find the appropriate driver that corresponds to your Operating System (If you have Windows XP, download the driver for XP. If you have Windows Vista, download the driver for Vista).

If the method above does not work for you, Microsoft has been getting better at locating drivers for you through Microsoft Update. If you're running Windows XP, go to the regular Windows Update page and look for links for Microsoft Update (By default, Microsoft Update is not used for Windows XP. You have to request it through Windows Update). After "signing" an agreement and installing a few more files Microsoft Update will look for updates to your system. Once the results are displayed look into the "Hardware" section. If you find anything in regards to a printer, chances are Microsoft found a compatible driver they know will work for your printer. Remember, before Microsoft Update can locate drivers for your printer it has to be connected to the computer and turned on.

If you're using Vista (W7 is just an enhanced version of Vista, yet Vista nonetheless), just go to your Start Menu and search for Microsoft Update -or- Windows Update. Afterward check for new updates and do the same as mentioned above. Look into the hardware section to see if there are any entries for a printer. If there are, select the update and install it. Remember, before Windows / Microsoft Update can find drivers for your printer it needs to be connected to the computer and turned on.

Personally I would use the drivers from Lexmark, yet I figured I would give you two choices. Let us know how things turn out.

Installing windows xp in Compaq Presario CQ45 137TX, All drivers


The drivers will either bo on the Windows XP installation CD or they will download from the updates site as it installs. Make sure you allow Windows to connect to search for updates & drivers during the installation. All you need to do is put the cd in the drive and follow the onscreen directions. Good luck.
