Is there a simple way of finding out what driver version/date you have installed with XP Pro. The particular update I want to check is:

http://www.abit-usa....roduct_name=AN8

nForce4 Chipset Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003 Released Date: 2005-09-12

1. For Microsoft Windows 200/XP/2003
2. Revision v 6.67

Just flicking through the system32/driver folder and hovering over some of the nVidia drivers most seem earlier than 2005-09-12.

Thanks

Normally, driver details are shown in Device Manager. Not so with the chipset. Best bet is to download Everest Home. You can get it here.

Please post the results.

Excellent programme, thanks LindGail. I ran benchmarks and the computer shutdown and restarted, I lost 10 years!

Here a report:

Look at this post - the question is very similar to yours: http://groups.google...a23a2a420480bd8

I don't know if that helps or not, but that's about all I have for you. Maybe someone else reading this thread can add something.

Ok, I downloaded and installed the latest drivers anyway. I didn't install the nVidia Firewall one as I use a NAT router + have the windoze firewall (switched off). This I didn't install the last time.

I'll see how it goes.
