Hello, I like to think I am a comp geek, but actually I am just a goof. I did a clean install on my emachine that I just boutht from my son, It is a 3300 T3302 to be exact. After the AHEM clean install, I realized emachines disk does not have drivers on it like my dell did. LORDY, I found the sound one but don't hink it is the actual one, but hey I have sound. Went to driver site can't remember it's name free one. windriver.com I think
I did find the S3g ChromePcie anyway it said exactly same thing as one supposed to be in here. BUT it was zip file and no way,,,is going in for me. Ihave no idea what t that vga is doiing but it won't let me run a dvc in my player now, or something won't. Plus page jumps all over, scrolls really bad, it is really horrible. I have been putting up with it for fear I will junk this one like I did my brand new Dell laying over in corner. Please can anyone help me to install this or something that will work better. On the System Hardware list it has a yellow mark next to it. I try to unisnstall just keeps coming back. I really screwed up. Can anyone help me. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, JANA

Did you install the chipset drivers

VIA chipset drivers must be installed on a system with the K8M800 or K8N800 chipset as well as the display driver for integrated graphics support.

Keith Thank you so much for answering and with a very good question. I looked and I don't believe I do have the chipset in there. I know I looked for it but couldn't find the right one, I went to VIA site and that driver site. What do I look for Keith? Thank you so much. JANA
