Asus A7M266 with wrong Chipset



I have the ASUS A7M266. On the box, manual and website they all say it has an AMD 761 chipset, i tried to install drivers but it say no hardware supported. Opened up my machine and there is the VIA chipset. has anyone else heard of this...sounds pretty bizarre to me i can take a shot of it to show you if it sounds peculiar to you also.:confused:

Well you could of course just look at the chips on the board :D

I heard once of a baord that used a combination of VIA and AMD chipsets, must have been very confusing to install !!


mate, this bpoard has a mixed xhip set it has an amd 761 northbridge and a via 686b southbridge. You need to install the agp amd driver and the via 4in 1(but don't install the agp driver)

hope this helps

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
