Hailz all. I installed the latest Via drivers-they didn't seem to increase performance at all. Suspicious, I checked my hardware drivers-the Via drivers aren't registered!! The system has defaulted back to the M$ drivers XP shipped with. Tried to reinstall the Via drivers-after reboot, same thing. Same problem with the 4.37's. They seem to install, but after reboot, they are clearly missing. Can I manually extract the files somehow, and if so, what ones? Thanks in advance.:mad:

I am pretty sure you have to install them in win 98 compatibility mode. Do a search on win 98 compatibility and VVia 4 in 1's and XP. That should lead to some hits. Sorry I can't be more help.

From what I understand Win XP has native support and the Via drivers are uneccessary. I just remember reading about it. Over at Viahardware. I could be wrong ?

I know one of the beta's of XP Pro would start installing SCSI adapters after you installed the VIA 4in1's. Never heard of doing that in compatiblity mode though. I always just run the .exe and let Windows sort it out.

Usually if Windowsupdate doesn't find an updated driver....I leave it alone.
