Assistance Please With Updating & Finding Drivers?

Hi,

I have spent some hours (after reformatting my computer) in trying to find the correct drivers! The irritating issue is, that so many of the programmes promise or allude to free driver downloads but it is not that at all the case... The missing files are:

 

SIS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adaptor Drivers

SIS IDE Drivers for Windows

Sis UniVGA Drivers

ULi(ALi) Integrated Drivers Package

SIS 7012 Audio Drivers

 

Journeyed all over for these, upturning barrels, looking in sea shells - engaging in a conversation with a tortoise of a discriminating nature...

 

 

Please not also, (jests aside) when I have downloaded previously visual drivers, my computer screen when you adjust the size with the sliding rule fails to work in increments but just goes from the sliding scales extremes of big to very small. So I suspect I have not had the right drivers in the past, hence the reason I making a specific effort now. Again, any assistance please, it should not be this hard???

 

I would have thought there a "entirely free" site you can use, where you simply place in the drivers name or it is listed "free" of charge, with just a little effort?

 

PS: And below is a secondary issue but if anyone can offer any assistance on this it would be appreciated:

I published the above title Quirky Claus a few years ago but I am struggling to promote this and turn it into an ebook.

 

Additionally below, I am editing a title I began in 2006, which I would like to place as page turning device on the net, on a site such as Issuu but even here, it is difficult to get the proportions correct. If you can come back on that, but to put things simply please, I want my work on here to look as much as possibly appear as a book, and work as a page turning book, but on a computer screen, without complications or distractions please?

 

I want people to look at their screen without them having to adjust their settings and for this to appear like a genuine book... that fills the “entire” page or very near to… and where you do "not" have to scroll down as well as across. IE: in a regular book, you read and just flick the pages you do not have to start "scrolling down!"

 

A system which is as "easy" and effective to use... as possible!

 

Can you offer any assistance or guidance please?

 

Please find enclosed my submission for the book title ...The Tallest Dwarf pays homage in part - to that I believe milestone and groundbreaking classic film -Highlander; throughout the entire book there are subtle and admittedly not so subtle references to this, whilst this is entirely an individual story in its own right! I have included seven chapters, some of these are rather short and while the first six establish the tale, the seventh brings the characters together, it demonstrates the mechanisms of the relationships, as the dynamics of the characters come together, as well as leaving the story on something of a cliff hanger - giving the reader a sense of what may be to come.

 

*Ideally*, and this "is" my ideal... but I'd like some kind of format for

The Tallest Dwarf, where people could have a page turning device of course, but for it to gain support via this and perhaps people who do so - to show their practical support by making a financial contribution towards it ultimately being published.

 

Please also note that the tale is peppered with the occasional footnotes, as you may see in the likes of Terry Pratchett's work. This was not my original intention, to use this format but the fact is, this is the best way of conveying the humour within certain parts within the tale! Nonetheless please make allowances for the fact that these appear peculiarly spaced on an A4 sheet of paper or computer screen but are successfully deployed on a regular "book" sized page.

 

gives you an opportunity to look at the work, it has footnotes as well, which is a bit of an issue - as these would be fine in a book but look strange on A4 or a screen. I'd have to make some adjustments as well, if I were to use this, as it looks a little different in this format... This is as far as I have got on Issuu http://issuu.com/sebastianwhite/docs/the_tallest_dwarf... as you can see, I have to add a cover yet etc, but it is far too difficult to use, to put it bluntly you have to scroll down as well as the regular page turning...

 

This is actually what I wish the Issuu project of the version of the T.D to look like? But in mine you have to scroll down, which is very awkward for the reader!

As for your other inquiry, as I am understanding it, there are a few alternatives available.

 

We use Flip PDF at my day job.

 

Flip Builder's homepage: http://www.flipbuilder.com/flip-pdf/

 

There is also: http://page-flip.com/ which is similar.

 

These utilities are not free, but reasonably priced and easy to use.

There are free-ware utilities that I've toyed with that flip and animate pages like a book, but found them to be a bit too limiting and pre-production time was considerably more involved.

If you think that this:

Hi SebastianWhite and Welcome to The PIT!

You should be able to find all your drivers here:

http://w3.sis.com/download/

You must agree with the Terms/Conditions and select your O/S and you'll be set.

 

 

 

 

:geezer:

 

and this:

See if these take care of your video drivers: http://www.ykawika.com/uvga3.zip

 

I'm assuming that you are running XP, but you never did say what Operating System you are running.

 

:) Y

 

are not getting very far, I'm not sure what to tell ya' Sebastian...I've given you a link that you can use to download any SIS driver you need and Y gave a link to his own site and a video driver for ya'...

What Operating System are you running??

Hi - agreed this is the best way for it & to get the best response...

 

But did you answer my question on the pak?

 

In any case Y, I dont know your name sorry correctly? But I cannot find, I have looked all over for the make and model of my computer, how can I find this please?

 

The specifications I supplied are exactly correct I presume as I used a driver find programme?

 

But - well, I am trying to do my best with this; I have to go the Edinburgh Book Festival a few days from now - promote my work, and I am nowhere near as progressed with this - the preparation as I would like!

 

Thanks

The following,

 

SIS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adaptor Drivers

SIS IDE Drivers for Windows

Sis UniVGA Drivers

SIS 7012 Audio Drivers

 

can all be found on the link that caintry posted, you need to download each one. The ULi driver can be found on Nvidia's update page (seeing as Nvidia bought them out, and then basically dropped all support for it other than hosting the ULi chipset drivers),

 

http://www.nvidia.com/page/uli_drivers.html

 

This might help,

 

http://www.piriform.com/speccy

 

in identifying which motherboard that is in the computer.

*Just returned from Edinburgh Book Festival, so apologies for late response but I ran the Speccy and these are the results:

 

I think also because I was pressurised, I missed the "accept" button on the SIS page which aint very clear. But in any case the audio driver has downloaded in boxes again and again I am unsure where this went to, how to open again and how to set it up please? Not sure as to what I am doing, if that isn't obvious...

Even the other link you gave me, not sure where to go with that: http://www.nvidia.co...li_drivers.html

Let's give it another go.

 

I uploaded 5 drivers that I believe you need, based on the information provided.

They are all zipped and need to be extracted, then double click on the setup icon to begin the installation for each.

 

My recommendation is to take your time and reboot your computer after each installation.

The direct downloads are below.

 

The ULi driver is your chipset driver so install it first and then reboot and check your devices.

After extracting it from the zip file, double click on the "IntegratedDriver2.13.exe" icon.

If needed, then see if the following will fill the void.

It's an educated guess at this point, but that's the best I can offer.

Hope the book festival went well for you. :)
