Your welcome Lee

Ok they seem fine for now only draw back is the set I grabbed installed the crappy 52.16 vid drivers LOL so I will have to see about fixing that or finding the shaved down set, I cant use 52.16 cause they cause hard lock up's in ET and RTCW if I play on a punk buster enabled server ......... but other than that seems they are good.

This is interesting too, never saw it before either.

I was going to get the 3.13, but I am on omega 45.23 I think and I dont want anything newer. Can you let me know where a shaved one is if you find it.

The sys utility sucks so far. I can adjust FSB and ram timings except cas.

I have an A7N8X deluxe 1.06 and I cant change anything else. Dunno if it is because I have an old board or what.

Yeah Well. I am in negotiations with the person I RMA'd it to. I sent him a rev 2 and got a rev 1.06 back.

Not Happy!!

Terrible drivers,
Once installed i couldnt boot, i had to go in via Last known working configuration and then it worked.

I can only assume this is a problem with the IDE Driver as it dosent crash - just sits there on the Windows XP loading screen looking dumb. I've seen this elsewhere too on other forums, one guy waited around 5 minutes before his PC continued into windows, and then it ran like s**t.

BEWARE....

I got a hard lockup while burning a CD, and Alcohol 120% thinks I don't have a CD burner at all. Back to the 2.45s.

Did see if these are/are not WHQL certified?

They are signed , one thing I have seen is that the people that install over the last set seem to have a much better outcome, I myself was lucky and it works fine for me, I have yet to find any problems with them, but that dont mean they are bug free, it seems as always there are cases where people are having some troubles but again less when you dont uninstall your old drivers.

The nforce drivers are seperate from video. I figured out what was giving the lockup...

It was the IDE driver. I just reinstalled the 2.45 IDE driver and Alcohol works again, and no hard lockups when using Nero.

Yes this set came with 52.16's and the sound drivers for soundstorm

I dont like 52.16 they are no good for me so I let it install the whole set rebooted and reinstaled my video drivers. Like I said it seems its better to install over old drivers and not remove the older set first, I will give them a go on our MSI K7N2G as well , but that board was picky about the last set and I needed to use standard IDE drivers not the Nvidia ones, where as my G7NNXP did not mind the last set from Nvidia.

Yes cool little application just that I cant use it to adjust anything but good to get a look at some info , I like that I can get all the versions of my drivers at one glance, ethernet, chipset, video.

They were bundled with the 52.16s?! I am not paying very good attention to what's happening :eek:

I just keep clicking "Next", "I Agree", "Next", "Next". It has been safe up until now :D

I had that problem for awhile, mine was because I have a HP OfficeJet 2210 All-in-One, the printer has removable disks for cameras and the OS was signalling the printer as a hard drive, it would sit there for a few minutes waiting on an answer from the printer then would run very slow...

I simply turned the printer off during POST and when I got to a desktop everything was OK, I think there is a fix from Micro$oft for this....

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
