    Visit the support website of the manufacturer of your computer
    or motherboard and download the motherboard chipset drivers
    and install them.

    If you have an Intel processor and chipset:

    You will need to install the correct motherboard chipset drivers. These are
    not usually made by the motherboard manufacturer but they can still provide
    you with a copy, If you can not get thse drivers from the manaufacture, you
    can try:

    Intel www.intel.com
    VIA www.viaarena.com
    nVidia www.nvidia.com
