Hi to all those that helped me before. thanks for all your help. I finally got round to swapping out the m/board and putting in a new ASUS A7N8X-XE m/board. Loaded win XP pro and thought I was home and dry but when I put in the Cd with the ASUS drivers supplied with the m/board it came up with an Intel m/board installation with install greyed out since it wasn't an Intel board!!!! So went to the ausus website downlaoded the all-in drivers three times and each time when I click on the unzipped exe file there is an error message saying '...encountered an error... So i'm tearing my hair our. I've emailed ausus but not holidng my breath. So please help before I go bald

Thanks for the nVidia link. didn't think of that one. I assume that I'll only need these drivers i.e it will inlcude the LAN/audio etc?

Thanks again

Are you saying that the disk supplied with the motherboard was not the correct one?

If that is so, get on to whoever supplied the board and get them to fix you up.

Thanks to everyone. I used the link to the Nvidia site and that had all the motherboard and display drivers and the computer is now up and running. Must say yet again you all are a great team of people - much quicker and better than any of the official sites.

I'll try and get a Cd from the seller but I reckon they just say try Asus. I have contacted them already and they were willing to burn a new copy and send it me but for a price - some service!!!!

always use the latest drivers

To be honest the ones that come with the MOBO are usually out of date anyway
