Tecra R840-A222 - Windows XP Drivers needed
Posted: 19-Jul-2012 20:33
 
Dear all, I am currently planning on purchasing the Tecra R840-A222 (PT42KV) here in Saudi Arabia and I need to know if this model has Windows XP drivers for it. On the driver downloads page, I can see two short-model numbers for this R840-A222. They are PT42KV and PT42KE.

The PT42KV has only about five XP drivers while the PT42KE has practically all the drivers for WinXP.
Can someone please tell me if the XP drivers for the PT42KE will also apply to the PT42KV?

I am mostly concerned about the basic drivers which consists of the graphics, chipset, audio, ethernet, and others for the hardware of this model. I will be using this unit mainly for engineering software (PLC programming, Vehicle diagnostics, and others that need the XP platform).

As far as I know the XP drivers for Tecra R840 PT42KE should work on Tecra R840 PT42KV too.

Hello Tonny, that was what I thought initially since they are of the same R840 platform.

But honestly, I had my doubts until I read your reply. I checked the driver downloads page again and this time I selected ALL in the Model field. When the results came up, I saw the drivers for both W7 and XP for the different harware. So there, I will proceed withh the planned purchase.

Thank you for your reply Tonny.
