Updating Chipset Drivers

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Hi. I gave XP Service Pack 2, NVIDIA Graphics Card and a Mitsubishi
DiamondPoint 17" Flat Panel Monitor.
A couple weeks ago the so-called Blue Screen Of Death started coming around
notifying me that nv4_disp.dll had crashed. Details I'm not sure of. I
removed the
driver in Add/Remove Software and before I rebooted I used Driver Cleaner to
remove any remnants of the driver. I did this several times as it continued
to crash.
Finally I had the XP setup cd remove the partition and install XP on the
empty
partition. After reinstalling my software It started again! At least this
time the system
booted up where as before it would lockup before the welcome screen.
I'm using the latest display driver I could find on NVIDIA's web site:
78_01_winxp2k_english_whql.exe.
I reinstalled the driver and reduced my screen res from 1280 x 1024 to 1024
x 768. (I had this same problem a year ago and if I remember correctly
reducing the res
helped.) I found an article at NVIDIA this exact situation and one
suggestion was to
update the motherboard chipset drivers. I wish to do this but I want to make
sure
I install the proper driver(s) I'm not even quit sure how to determine my
current
chipset driver's version. I did however notice that when my computer starts
I saw
and wrote down the following:
GeForce FX 5200
Version 4.34.20.18.07.
Is this the current chipset driver name and version???
Can someone direct me as to what I need to select at NVIDIA's site to
download and install the up-to-date chipset driver(s)? I'm not sure if
updating these driver(s) will
remedy the situation.
Any help here will be extremely appreciated.

Thanks,
James

    Google is your friend:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=MSI+865PE+Neo2-P&btnG=Google+Search

    The first link that comes up says what your chipset is. It's actually part
    of the model number of the motherboard. Use that information to go to
    www.intel.com and download the right drivers.

    Do you have a graphics adapter built in your motherboard? If so you must
    disable it before installing another video card.

    I believe they are talking about your motherboard chipset driver not your

    Chipset drivers are for your M/B. What M/B is in your computer? Go to the
    manufacturers web site or go to www.nvidia.com for an update for the latest
    drivers.

    Flashing the BIOS with a bios updater is not the same as updating or
    installing the mobo chipset drivers. The mobo chipset drivers use the .INF
    extension and should be on the setup disk that came with the retail boxed
    mobo. If your computer is OEM like Dell or HP you will need to see if a
    chipset update is available form the OEM's web site. If the mobo is a boxed
    retail ver you will stand a better chance of getting all the needed driver
    updates at their web site for your particular mobo's model #..

    The latest drivers are not always the best. I've had some problems with the
    latest Nvidia drivers on one of my machines, but several revisions back work
    just fine.

    I updated these drivers, and I don't want to say, but it seems to be stable
    now. This
    morning the system hung 2 times within an hour. Since updating it hasn't
    happened.
    My old bios driver's revision was 1006, ASUS had revisions up to 1013 plus
    a beta.

    Thanks,
    James

    Why are you referring to a "bios" update when everyone has been telling you
    to update your M/B drivers. They are NOT the same thing, whatever you may
    think.
