question about chipsetting driver

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Mr Bruce Wayne, Jul 29, 2005.

  1. i was told that my computer runs slow because possibly i messed up installing my drivers... then i was told that i should reformat and chipset driver first... can anyone explain to me exactly what this means ? would this be reformatting my driver or drive ?

    A chipset driver comes on your MB CD. It's the first thing you should install otherwise other devices may not work correctly.

    You should always download the newest chipset driver from their website.

    Yeah that's true - hard to do with onboard LAN though ;)

    I sometimes have problems getting drivers to register properly. So here's what I do whenever I install new hardware: follow the instructions for installation, then open Device Manager and delete the hardware, then reboot and let it get redetected. That way Windows will re-register the driver the way it wants to.
