PCChips motherboard drivers

  mikeyb59 16:43 08 Jun 04

As a result of my brother's pc crashing big style we decided to format & reinstall Windows Me.

Formatting and installing went without a hitch but the problem is he has no driver disk for the mobo. I installed Aida32 to try and get the mobo details but "Motherboard not recognised" is the response. The chipset is SIS730S.

Without drivers I can't get the display to work correctly and all the USB items in Device Manager have yellow "?" next to them.

I believe that the mobo is a PCChips M810?? Socket A board.

The PC810 mobo is listed (PCChips was taken over by Elite Computer Systems a while back).

This is a comprehensive FAQ link with regard to the mobo:

Its getting worse. Thanks to the links provided I downloaded the drivers I think I need. However, when I boot up his pc neither of the optical drives appear available.

They are both visible in the BIOS at start-up are not accessable in Windows.

Getting fed up now and think I might have to install my old Jetway 266 mobo to cure it all.

Any ideas?

The most likely cause, especially if they are listed in Device Manager in Safe mode, is that connections or leads are not firm enough or incorrectly fitted.

  mikeyb59 16:54 09 Jun 04

Not recognised in safe mode either. Only in the BIOS.

Having reconsidered the original problem which seemed to be a chipset/driver issue I have ordered him a new mobo.

Thanks to everyone for their help.
