    Via 4in1 driver question...

    I have heard lots of people mention these when people say they are having slow performance or other problems with their video card. Are these only for AMD-based systems, because it seems like they only recommend them to people with Athlons or TBirds. My system is i815e chipset. Is there any similar driver I can download?

    If pro is the opposite of con, what's the opposite of progress?

    It's just the way Via do their mobo chipsets and they require drivers to work properly. Many poeple have never had a mobo before that requires chipset drivers so it gets overlooked during set-up and will cause a big performance hit using 3D graphics.

    I'm pretty sure your mobo doesn't require any drivers.

    You have an Intel chipset, which is a lot less troublesome than the Via!
    Go to the web page of your mobo manufacturer and get the latest drivers for your chipest ( if there are any ).
    Dunno cos My mobo is a 440BX, and I'm not UP on the recent chipsets from Intel.

    If you mobo manufacturer doesnt show any then try the Intel web site, I've got chipset drivers from there B4.
