    Those drivers are supposed to be installed first. Right after getting to the first desktop after reformat. Before the nvidia gfx drivers.

    Could I un-install the Nvidia drivers, install the mobo drivers, then re-install the Nvidia drivers?

    I'm guessing this requires a reformat to install the mobo drivers?

    That would be the best way to do it.

    I just did a clean reinstall of Windows, and no go on those drivers. I even e-mail Asus, they gave me a link of some NForce drivers, I DLed those, ran the prog...it installed the folders onto my HD but when it went to install the drivers, the InstallSheild Wizard went to 100%, but then the install program shut down. This happened before the reformat, too. I'm doing all this with absolutely no other drivers (besides Windows') on the PC. Some help here...

    Windows XP
    SP1 (if not already included with your version of XP)
    motherboard chipset drivers
    DX9
    video drivers

    Here's the deal - there's the nForce drivers that're on the Asus webpage, but when e-mailing the Asus tech guys, he gave me a different link on the Nvidia website for a different Nforce set of drivers. However, both close up right after the InstallSheild Wizard.

    Will try the sequence you told me, tommorow - I had a system restore point made right after the reformate. I'll let ya know.

    Hey mate, I just did what ya' told me to do - installed SP1, went to Windows Update and updated everything that I needed, then went to run the program for the mobo drivers (nForce). It crashes right after completion of the InstallSheild Wizard. I have absolutely no clue as to what the problem could be. I even took my modem out (because it was sharing an IRQ with my video card, so I figured I'd give that a shot). But even though it's an AGP video card, Device Manager is saying my video card (VGA compatible) is a PCI card. Is there any way I could force Windows to recognize it as an AGP card (it was reading as PCI even after the Nvidia drivers. So, here it is:

    Windows updates: successful
    Mobo drivers: crashing

    If ya wanna drop me a line to do this better, do so at Hawkens85@hotmail.com.

    Windows update should not have been done untill ya have all ya drivers loaded which could screw things up, in fact you shouldn't be online until all those drivers are loaded.

    Installing video drivers usually helps that.
