Hi there, I have just reinstalled win xp onto my pc and stupidly i presumed it would automatically find all connected hardware but, infact, none of the usb port, pci etc drivers have been installed. I have a 'via chipset' cd but dont seem able to make it install any of the drivers.
Can anyone offer some urgently needed assistance??
If you have the motherboard install disk, it will have all the drivers for the Via chip set. Windows alone will not recognise these. I you cannot find the motherboard driver disk you will have to go on line, download and install the latest VIA chipset drivers. try here click here
You can also read the page supplied for reasurance on what you are downloading.
After dowloading and installing the driver set, this driver sets up a whole host of controllers by simply following the instructions, you can check in device manager and see any items that have an exclamation mark next to it.
However, posting back saying I have no sound or modem, without supplying details of make and model number, would be a fruitless task.
