    I have a Toshiba P25 Satellite laptop. It has a 3.0Ghz, Pentium 4 w/ 1.5GB RAM.

    I went to the Intel site and DL'ed the ChipUtil. It says the detected chipset is the Intel 865 chipset family and under device manager, it says "Intel(R) 82865G\PE\P Processor to I/O Controller - 2570"

    Now, I use my laptops for Photoshop, burning DVD's, etc. Will does the Intel program do, and how will it help?

    Google only knows what it does. Ask the almighty Google for wisdom, and perhaps it will deem you worthy.

    Seriously though, I have no idea. Maybe it overrides the process scheduler built into Windows or something.

    I Google'd. Found the Intel website. I'm not sure if it helps or what?

    Make a System Restore point, install the driver, and see if your computer runs better. If it doesn't make a noticable difference, go back to the restore point and never install the driver again.
