    Default Please, Help Me !! GA-M61PME-S2P

    Please I need help, I'm building a new computer and I bought The follow:
    GA-M61PME-S2P
    AMD A64 X2 7850 DUAL CORE 2.80 GHz
    2x 2GB DDR2 CORSAIR
    3.5" 1TB 32MB SATA HD SEAGATE

    When I install Windows XP Pro/32, everything was fine, then I just noticed that XP do not reconize the VGA or LAN connections on the back, at the same moment when I try to install the application software that came with the motherboard so I imagine the problem was the drivers I notice that XP try to read the CD but never run it or give me an error code, I try to use a different CD (Vista Up Grade) and I have the same trouble, when I go to the control panel the CD Drive is there but is not working, so I imagine the problem could be the CD drive, I exchange it, and I continue with the same problem, also I dont see my second monitor or LAN. Just let me tell you the computer reconize and let me install the software from the Hard Drive and the software for USB wireless connection, what could be trouble? the BIOS version I'm using is F2
    I appriciate if some one can help me, Thanks

    Have you been into Device manager to see if the Drivers are installed or not?
    Are the Onboard devices enabled in BIOS?


    You also mention a second monitor, but not a video card in your parts list. That motherboard only supports single DSUB output doesn't it?

    A few quick things to check
    Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
    Intel E6400 @ 3.2GHz
    Kingston 1GB x 4 PC5300 @ 800MHz
    Zotac 8800GT AMP! @ 770MHz

    I would manually download and install the latest drivers direct from Gigabyte as the ones on the CD are likely very old >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-M61PME-S2P (rev. 1.0)

    Those drivers should get your LAN Going, provided you have it enabled in the BIOS.

    For your CD Drive, are you using RAID? Looked like it from your settings is why I ask. If you are be sure you put your CD Drive onto the last SATA Port.

    As for your second monitor, you do have the onboard GFX Disabled correct? We need some more info on these cards before we can advise further. Please list the specs of both cards. And have you used them both before for this purpose? If so, on what board? Just wanting to check to be sure

    Set onboard GPU to disabled for sure since you are not using it.

    Did you install the Chipset/LAN drivers I linked? Can you check your CD Drive jumper and be sure you have that correct? You should have it set to Master with the drive on the end of the IDE Cable, or CS (Cable Select) with the drive also on the end of the cable

    I dow load the driver, now my question: how can I verify it's install? or how to install it?
    and yes the jumper on the CD ROM is as Master.

    Thanks

    So you are wanting to use your PCIE Card right, not the onboard GFX? You can't use both at once I don't think.

    To install the driver you should just click on it, if it extracts to a folder then go inside and run the setup file
