The link might not work click here

If not enter P4R800-VM in the search box. The driver is probably in the 'Others' download section.

Don't download from that link as it's for my own motherboard. I don't know why it keeps doing that. As I mentioned above use the 'Input model to search'

If you can get online,your first visit should be MS updates...this may update the drivers.

Though i thought xp would install the generic drivers for starters.

Have you tried through device manager ?

Just a thought Rob,is this reinstall sp1 or sp2 ?

If you update to sp2 if only sp1,i believe your bus controller will be updated.

Reason i say this,i recently reinstalled xpsp1 on an old Emachine,updating to sp2 solved my problem with the bus controller in device manager.

Its listed under "Others" click here
Please note there are 2 parts to this download, get them both and follow the instructions.

But if you click on the Drivers tab across the top you can DL the newer one (7.991 - 27mb) in one go.

'please shorten one or both below the specified limit, and try again'
