Retro gamers are very familar with driver issues. There used to be an industry around selling support for finding and downloading drivers. It made some people mad and they eventually got together and made an opensource set of tools and download kit for automatically detecting and pulling down the drivers you need for free.

The current favorite is "Snappy Driver".

You can download the "lite" version which runs a detector on your system and then downloads only the drivers you need from the Internet.

You can download the "full" version which runs a detector on your system and then applies the drivers you need from its most recent 15 GB cache of drivers while offline. Needless to say.. this takes a lot longer to download.

Most people download the "lite" version and put it on a CDROM or USB stick to get it on your Windows PC, then double click it and run it from there.. it runs its scan and does its thing.

It can be a little overwhelming because (well) it was designed for "Gamers" which means Extreme Expert features.. but most people like me bumble along and get it done.

Its really worth learning if you work on old PCs or need driver support and would rather not chase things all over Google.

Snappy Drivers is like an "Internet Browser for Drivers" except it finds and installs them for you.

Be Sure your ATI USB2.0N is not plugged in while running Snappy Driver if you plan to use the Installer disk, because Snappy Driver will try to find drivers for that too. But if you want it to do that.. then you can leave it in.. I just don't know what kind of drivers it will find for it.

Here is where to find it:

Is that true?
It depends actually.

Some i5 systems were based on Sandy Bridge and that is supported "for sure" on XP.

Some i5 systems were based on Ivey Bridge and "most" were supported by Intel, whether the manufacturers made support available was less certain. But the Intel drivers would work.

XP was phenomenally flexible and had many work arounds. Bolt-on SATA and mSATA, USB 3.0 support available.. is available.. and that's just nuts.

I recently upgraded my Win7 HP Folio13 to XP, it has an i5 with a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port with mSATA card. Its pretty nice. HP never released XP support for that.. but Snappy Driver to the rescue.

I will be very interested to hear if that really has a dead Sound input.

Like I said these things 'are like' from Krypton.

I have seen "one" D.O.A. instance of this.. but it was the whole thing.. probably someone plugged a 12 volt power supply into the 6 volt port.. that happens "far far" too often with other capture boxes.. like the Pinnacle series.

Mostly people overlooked the ATI standalone capture box.. which brought it all the way into the 2010's.. otherwise they would have probably been abused to death by now.

the Saga.. continues.. good luck.

On my HP installing windows XP SP2 went well...but never could find the right network driver to make the network work...so could not download drivers from Snappy Drivers. Uploaded my PC Info image

That's what the "Full" version is for.. although, people tend to use USB WiFi adapters quite a bit.. but you need an adapter that XP supported. Hard to find in a store.. easy to find on eBay or Amazon. An old PCI ethernet card that you have with a driver disk or USB drivers for can also get you online and get Snappy to perform the 'Snap'

If you have the patience and download capacity the 15 GB fits nicely on a 32 GB USB flash drive from BestBuy.. they are running about $6 for a 32 GB stick that's about the size of a dime. Handy thing to have around when dealing with old Retro PCs.. its not like after you download that 15 GB they are going to suddenly update the XP drivers.. lol.

That would sort of be like Updating the Pyramids.. though I suppose they could find another 'tomb' with an elusive driver set.

Give Phils Lab a watch over on Youtube

He demos installing XP on a Haswell Motherboard with Easy2Boot and Snappy Driver.

Its essentially what your doing:

Uh.. this might be a long shot.. but

This driver might work for the NIC for your motherboard:

hp elitedesk 800 sff

http://download.msi.com/dvr_exe/LAN_x32_11.zip

Its from Intel to support XP embedded that was released after support for XP desktop was dropped, multiple people have reported it worked on msi and dell desktops, and one person reported it worked for the hp elitedesk 800 sff (much to the irritation of HP support)

Another big problem is that VIA hates ATI. And it's not ATI's fault, but VIA cheaping out in various areas. Sometimes this would show, sometimes not, was almost random.

Well, good news ...the new capture card I ordered arrived and I do get audio...so the capture card I got for Lordsmurf is bad for capturing audio...No I can start doing the project and hope no other headaches...witch probably won't be the case...lol

I like to thank jwillis84 he tried everything possible to see if it was my pc settings not the capture card issue.
