What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

Where can I download the latest Service Pack for Windows?

Update intel pentium d 945 procesor mikrocode patch


You didn't state the O/S.
So I'm going to use Windows XP Home for an example;

HP Support > HP Compaq dc7600 > HP Compaq 7600 Convertible Minitower PC > Download drivers and software > HP Compaq dc7600 Base Model Convertible Minitower PC > Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition >

BIOS > 786D BIOS Family Processor Microcode Update

Current version -> 11.1A / 31Jul/ 2006
Size -> 0.38
Estimated download time -> 1Minute
Previous version -> 1.09A/ 11 Oct 2005
Click on Download at the end.

A small window will come up on the right.
Opening sp33313.exe
Click on Save File.

Another small window will come up on the left. In the wording at the top of the window tells you where the file will download to. You may wish to write it down.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen
My Documents:
Click on Start, then My Documents

Downloads:
Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads

When you see the file name (sp33313) DOUBLE-click right on it
The Installation Wizard will appear. At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to Restart your computer, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Restart your computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart )

It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.

What ethernet controller do i have? my computer is a prebuilt hp 511w but it has windows 98 installed on it. when i installed win98 it didnt install the ethernet driver so i have to find one but i dont...


From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07366&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=228&product=77620&lang=en#N1141

view the specifications for your HP Pavilion computer.

However, HP (and Microsoft) no longer support Windows 98 (since 2004!), so any device-drivers are no longer available from HP's web-site.

Your system was originally shipped with "Microsoft (R) Windows XP Home Edition". So, contact Dell, and order a replacement set of CD-ROMs, to reinstall Windows XP, which will install the correct device-drivers for your hardware.
