Greetings:

After many head-banging hours of frustration drilling through
hp/compaq's confusing tiers of web pages and searching
an ls -alR of ftp.compaq.com I can't find any SSDs. Also
ftp searched the 'Net.

We desperately need NT 3.51 SSD 1.17 (or at least the
uniprocessor HAL 'uphal.dll' and any Qvision 2000 video
card support). Platform: Deskpro XL series (590, 5133, etc.)

All replies much appreciated.

Hi.

I found The Video Drivers Qvision 2000/2000+ Series
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/support/files/deskpro/us/download/56.html

The other problem is a little harder Windows NT 3.51 SP5
ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/nt351/ussp5/i386/

I hope this helps

Unfortunately, this is Windows 95 driver support; we need NT 3.51

Although Microsoft provides basic HAL functionality for the XL line
of machines in its distributions, the Compaq provided HAL is still needed
to resolve driver issues and provide instrumentation.

We're still looking and still appreciate any help from readers...

Thank goodness for Google's page caches; a cache page from a
defunct site included the text from a MS technote which
described SP10793 as the NT3.51 Compaq SSD 1.17 and a cache
page for a link at Compaq (now long gone) referenced SP1322
as the Display Driver support including Qvision 2000 for NT3.51.


For the archives...
At the time for writing these SP's are at:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp1001-1500/sp1322.exe
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp10501-12000/sp10793.exe

^1 here?
Easiest way lookg for drivers is getting the allfiles.txt from ftp
and browse offline.
I have some older Smartstart CDs at home, if you need more files of this
kind?
Running several XLs myself, but none with any flavour NT.
NT3.5 on a Systempro and NT3.51 on a Prosignia 486 instead.
I am looking for win 3.1 sound drivers for the XL instead?
Ever came across something like that?
