precopy1.cab for Windows ME

March 14, 2010 at 21:30:19
Specs: Windows Vista
Could anyone send me precopy1.cab for Windows ME?

My computer was bought in 2001 and can only be installed with Windows ME. I have deleted the original partitions and don't have a recovery CD, so I tried to install Windows ME from a retail Windows ME CD and an SU0173 error message appeared.

I have read some very old postings at this website and learned that precopy1.cab would resolve this SU0173 error.

Hope someone still have precopy1.cab and could send it to me. I would appreciate it.

Post back your email address or send it in a private message.

(Are you sure you've got a retail disk? That copy protection problem is only supposed to happen with OEM disks.)

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I don't know if I am right about the retail disk. I said that because the technician at a computer repair store gave the disk to me, but he's no longer at that store and I have no way to contact him.

My computer came with Windows ME and had everything in the hard drive; I just needed to press F8 to recover before I deleted the partitions.

How can I send my email address to you in a private message? This is my first time here, so I don't know so much about this website. I saw the warning message at this website to ask people not to post the email address here.

Thank you.

Just click on my name in one of my posts and it'll open a page that will have an option to send a private message.

Not really, but it at least had the computer up running. The appearance was rough/terrible, so I upgraded it to Windows XP. Now the appearance is good, but the working screeen is only 80-90% of the display. I don't know if it is because my computer is infected by some malicious hidden programs that are manipulating my computer.

Do you have any idea? Thank you.

A fresh install of XP shouldn't have left you any malware problems. You may need to install XP drivers. The support page for the motherboard (or system) should have all or most of what you need.

If you don't mind helping me more,
XP drivers like what?
What is the support page for the motherboard (or system)?

Thank you :-).

If you have a brand name computer--Dell, HP, Compaq, etc.--there will be a support page for that model on their website. If it's just a motherboard in a generic case then the motherboard manufacturer's site will have a support page.

On that page will be driver downloads for the hardware that wasn't supported on the XP disk.

Thank you very much.

I have searched IBM's website for drivers for my computer model; the search words I tried were "driver" "motherboard" but it didn't seem to have the contents for my issue.

Do you have some words to recommend for the search?

What could be the possible names for the drivers you were meant to say?

Thank you :-).

It sounds like you at least need the video driver. Post back the model number--it should be on a sticker somewhere on the case--and I'll see what I can find tomorrow.

Should the model number be the type? If it is, the type is 1171-9XU.

Thanks a lot :-).

Here's the download page for that model:

(You'll need to copy and paste as computing.net screws up long URLs)

You'll need the XP video and audio drivers and that may be all. After you install those, check your device manager and see if there's any other hardware showing yellow ? or !

Thank you very much.

I went to the link you provided and downloaded an executable file for the video drive. It was installed, but nothing had been changed until I manually changed the screen resolution in the display. Does this mean that I have to do the same every time after I reinstall Windows XP?

Thank you again very much :-).

If you do a fresh install of XP then yes, you'd need to reinstall the drivers.

If you mean just booting up into XP then the drivers will load on their own and you shouldn't need to do anything else.

Be sure to check in device manager (right click 'my computer', then properties, then hardware, then device manager) to see if any other drivers need to be installed.
