Hi WinXP SP3

I need MoBo chipset drivers and have found where I can download some...click here Motherboard Name is: ASUS A7A 266
The Motherboard Chipset is: MAGIK1

It's full name is: ALi M1647 ALi MAGIK1

My question is two fold...
(1) Would one of these be OK?
(2) If yes, which 'version' should I select. Am I supposed to find my preseny version or just select the highest number, which may be the latest?

The link is to Nvidia?

  gengiscant 13:41 24 Jan 11

Thanks for that, but the link still goes to a Nvidia-page not found error.

Ah thats better.

When 124 said they used to be owned by Nvidia. Does this then follow that these drivers might be out of date? If they could be, does anyone know where I might look for newer ones to download?

Here are the drivers from the Asus site click here

Did you try drivers for your motherboard directly from Acer? Anyway these are the ones offered there (for XP) click here, the latest of which is 1.90. All the ALi-related drivers are under Utilities.

If you install the nVidia ones, set a System Restore (SR) point before doing it. How to run SR if you cannot boot back into the OS click here. G

I just downloaded driver version 2.20 and after reading the 'Read Me' I think as I previously said that this must be an old driver because...

*************************************
(II) ULi IDE Cache and Utility 1.06

---------------
1. INTRODUCTION
---------------

ULi IDE Cache and Utility 1.06 is a driver about IDE device read ahead control. this
driver is for Windows 95/Windows 98/Windows 98SE and Windows Millennium.
When read-ahead is enabled, the cache controller module will accordding to current
read-ahead buffer size and cache frequency access your hard disk to speed up access
performance. In fact, IDE Cache Control Center will automatically determine when to
read ahead data to cache memory according to current disk read status. The size of
read-ahead data buffer and read-ahead frequency can be optionally changed by ULi IDE
Cache Control Center depends on the need of users. The disk access frequency for big
files or large continuous disk sectors is directly proportional to setting read-ahead
buffer. In contrast, if small files or big files with discontinuous disk sectors were
accessed often, you can set read-ahead buffer to be less to reduce useless data being
read to cache memory.
The default setting is the biggest read-ahead buffer size and the highest cache
frequency.

I actually started at your link, as my motherboard is ASUS. But I can't actually find any link to 'Chipset Drivers'?
