I need audio- and internet drivers for the Intel i865p/PE/g/i848p Chipset (Motherboard is ASUSTeK P4P800-VM). Reason being I can't get either of them to work... [URL=http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx?lang=eng]Intel Download Center[/URL] was no help. I tried multiple drivers for both 865 and 848 chipsets, and they were all a waste of time. I also tried [url=http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us]Driver Downloading from ASUSTeK[/url], to no use... And yes, it's an old chipset, I know. If you know where to find these drivers, please provide useful links and/or direct links to these drivers.
What motherboard??
ASUSTeK P4P800-VM
For what OS do you need drivers for?
Windows XP Professional SP3
Couldn't link from Asus own site, so i uploaded it to filesmelt [url]http://filesmelt.com/dl/inf5021003.zip[/url]
I already said the ASUS drivers don't work.
What? you sure it's a p4p800-vm?
Well, unless CPU-Z is lying...

What's the INF utility good for? It installs a bunch of files in a location I have no frickin idea where it is, and then what?

Doesn't that require an internet connection...?
[QUOTE=The iEzerith;20669440]Doesn't that require an internet connection...?[/QUOTE] No, the installer puts the files inside the directory, so windows can find them offline. Windows have a hidden folder with generic/universal drivers, the installer puts the files there. All you have to-do after executing the installer, is to trigger a driver update of your chipset using device manager. then windows should automatically use the intel drivers instead.
Okay, I tried it. No difference. Still no sound or internet. I give up. I'm switching to Linux on that PC. I'll get my laptop back from repair sooner or later anyways.
[QUOTE=The iEzerith;20670584] internet.[/QUOTE] Uh, you'll need a driver to the ethernet chipset then. The sound chipset is made by ICS if i guess right. [editline]04:29PM[/editline] nvm, it seems like it's all integrated into the Intel chipset.
