Next you will update your AUDIO DRIVER which can be found HERE. Extract the files from the zip to a folder and then run the setup.exe file and the updated audio drivers will be installed.

Hey Fenor I don't know whether this is appropriate but could we chat on MSN? I just downloaded the VIA and sound drivers, I'll go with them now first.

Yep totally understand. I've just installed the VIA chipset update but when I went with the audio thingy it says it's not signed by XP or something so I didn't do it. Just rebooted my computer and came back, how do I test it?

A stupid question - what does VIA do anyway? :tazz:)

When it says it's not signed by XP, just click CONTINUE ANYWAYS because every good driver, even the most up-to-date video card drivers for nvidia/ati pop up the same thing.

VIA is the manufacturer of your motherboard and hence supplies the updates for your chipset which is part of the motherboard.

Hey buddy, that was downloaded. But the download link for 3dfx Tweaker Utility is also expired. Is this 3dfx Tweaker Utility quite necessary after the update?

Hi Fenor,
I attached the capture I just made while trying to update the video card driver. I did exactly as what you instructed. Cheers

Right Click MY COMPUTER, select PROPERTIES, click on the HARDWARE tab and then the DEVICE MANAGER button. Click the '+' symbol next to DISPLAY ADAPTERS and then double click on your video card listed. Click on the DRIVER tab and tell me the date it shows for DRIVER DATE.
