Teckram S381 chip-set driver

Hello First I must say I don't have much of a knowledge ( very near zero)when working with computers.

Since I retired I have been making experimental musical instruments, and later in the year one of them will be displayed in an exhibition along with a photo slide show.. for this show I have purchased a cheap PS along with windows 98SE the original program on the PC was XP but along with the driver this was removed ,after many hour web searching I have found a driver for the graphics.. but cant' find any other.. I hope someone can help I have been told the one I really need is the 'Chip-set driver' ColRay

    Re Ekse's question.

    It was because of the law / microsoft and the XP license, the previous owner had XP on the machine and the guy who run the shop said the license could not be transfered and removed it, because a new copy of XP was out of my price range 98 was the next best thing. Col

    windows XP should have these drivers 'chipset drivers' for your motherboard build in. These can not be taken into 98se from xp.

    If you need other drivers than those two on 98se. Then I can't help you.

    Xp should have all the drivers you need.

  • Ekse Mar 11, 2008

    I looked in the driverguide database with over 40,000 drivers.

    I only found a sound driver and a video driver for your S381M

    there is no driver available.

Just Google your motherboard model and include the search terms "chipset driver" (ex. Gigabyte M61SME2 chipset driver) and that should get you what you need.

Hello my, compaq presario v5000 .has a sound problem .but online video&mp3 song play krta hun to aavaaj aati hain .please help me .

krta hun to aavaaj aati hain I asked google translated that,, and it fails ,why?
what language is that, welcome to the ENGLISH only forum..

tell us what works and does not;
this PC is now 13 years old, that be super old
in fact if I saw one run ok that old i'd be GOBSMACKED !

the sound chip on board, can play may files of audio
vast, and for sure with VLC App loaded, vast.

do windows sounds work? in control panel sounds.
does the sound chip in Device manager look ok./?
what OS you run. windows what. XP is now dead. not XP right?

this PC sold here in USA< had XP
XP has 700 + expoits. and is a virus magnet.
and XP has no support, zero
zero on HP
zero at MS.
zero. why in the world run XP, ? time to upgrade it, for sure, if true.

if the sound is 100% dead, all ways,
the look in DM , device manager.
see red or yellow marks on sound chip then the driver is missing.
or unknown, marked chips there. same.
in both cases, all cases, get the driver,
but MS or HP will help after 13 years, 17 for MS.
XP was released in 2001, and is DEAD NOW.

but we can find driver the hard way,but you need to tell
me what sound ship is there, using DM details.
VEN code
DEV code.
then drivers happen.

My rca is locked don't have my owners manual how

If you have its original remote control, you can unlock it by one amoung the following methods. If you don't have its original remote control, try to gather it from any of your friends or relatives to get the lock out. Then you can use any other remote controls.
Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

I am 62 years and paid full stamp, I therefor get a full state pension. When my husband retires at 65 years in 5 years time, he has also paid full stamp for the correct amount of years and will get the...

My friend, I don't know what a full stamp is ... I don't know what state you are from or even what country you live in, and please dont say. Please don't post any more personal data here on this web site. What you are doing is very dangerous for you.

I am sure if you call the agency from which you retired, they will give you full particulars on your retirement plan and the best way for you and your husbant to file. Better yet, he is not retired yet, there must be at least a personal liaison where he works. He should go to that office or person and get the information he and you require.

If I had to guess to the answer ... based on where I live ... and my scant knowledge of the subject ... you each earned you retirement, you should each get full benefit of what you earned.

Please go to your personnel office and get this info. No more personal data on this website - Deal?

I have an HP 514N desktop. the black square casing which the heat sink square sits in is broke so heat sink doesn't stay in. I need to remove the black casing before I can buy another one, but it's not...

OLD DT PC, very very old zero support now. and no parts sold at HP nor even mighty used parts at Ebay,...
but here you are, trying to fix relic, id get new MOBO.
what heat sink? mine has like 5 or more.(yours, 2?)
glue logic chip too. (seen below as silver fins)
the CPU heat sink is connected 2 ways
(clamps to socket edge or mobo direct (yours?)
The other chips,are soldered down use very special thermalbond epoxy, and a huge finned sink.
Be that the GlueLogic chips, or onboard video.
the MOBO mount is. series 500?PC
plastic rivets are tricky
why ask this with no photos, gee, we cant see where your eye
look can we/? nor damage there, or whats broken
(any thing can break so.... wed need to SEE THAT)

514N its old, hp says obsolete. "RETIRED"
Id scrap it,
there is no books on it for me to read for you or to you.

my guess is the HS mount broke (heat Sink = HS)
if this is the CPU .
we can findout what socket that is and may find a matching mount
but can be a BEACH on PC this old.
why spend cash on near zero value PC. Goodwill has them for near free, and newer. WHO PC.

deep google finds (ebay zero parts for 514s)

tell the helper where your finger points
then magic happens, answers. accurate.
top arrow is CPU socket, right side is MEM. power on far right center.
rear is LEFT

500-wikz01dbtr0wgp0dprkg5vvt-4-0.jpgthe lower chip is glue-logic, can be 2 ways to do this.
epoxy bond. or clamps. (CPUs use 2 clamp types)
Id have to see it close to tell you.
worked in PCB factories for 6 years, so, seen it all.

my guess is the CPU, HP< mobo mount base is damage
or you cant figure out its rivets.
best is to leave that part alone,(can be bought so why mess with it) and work the top end parts that
might be fixed.
What I do is look at the Socket 370 there (CPU)
i look for those CLASSIC side clamps.
if present, off the shelf new HS are sold by all top makers, but it must say, 370 socket.
