    im having problems with installing some games and installing windows xp and im wondering if its my Sis 745 chipset. i hava a Asus A7S333 and the Sis chipset. ive already tried updating the bios and the IDE controller and turnng off the DMA on my MSI 52x cd-rom and it seems to help only certain games.

    I'm not sure why games would not install becuase of your Mobo's chipset. It sounds like more of a matter of your CD Rom drive or disc to me. Do you have another drive to try?

    I have a SIS 655 chipset on my board and have never had problems installing anything onto the harddrive, 90 GBs worth of 3D games to boot!

    ive already tried getting a new cd rom drive and it didnt help. i dont think its the games because almost all of my new games are doing it. C&CG, Splinter Cell, Rainbow 6, ut 2003. i have already tried calling tech support and gettingh on the internet to the games site but nothin seems to be helping. i have sandra and its not telling me if any things wrong.:barf: :rofl: :barf: :rofl:

    Is ya AGP Aperture size set at 64MB or 128MB in BIOS? If the former than change it to the later.
