STUPID QUESTION TIME AGAIN !
WHAT IS THE PCI BRIDGE , WHERE DO I FIND IT??
IT HAS A ! IN DEVICE MANAGER
AND IS THIS IN THE SAME CATAGORY AS A KEY FOR AN INDOOR GRENADE RANGE!!
You must be running Win95...? If so you need to download the PIIX4E supplement for those drivers; or you should have a diskette that says Intel support drivers (setup.exe). If it's another OS the try double clicking on it in device manager, go to the driver tab and click "update driver" and reinstall it off of the CD.
PCI stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect. It's the electronic bus on the motherboard between the CPU and the PCI expansion cards and has it's own set of I/O chips. The older technology is the ISA bus that transfers information to the card at about 5MB/second. PCI runs at about 132MB/second transfer rate. You can see the advantage....
Motherboard manufacturers and I/O chip manufacturers will release new drivers from time to time to enhance or enable new functionalities on the PCI bus.
Some newer expansion cards won't run on older PCI bus drivers, or the driver for the bus can become corrupt requiring replacement.
In <start> <settings> <control panel> <system> <device manager> it is located under the <system devices> listing at the bottom along with most of the other motherboard and chipset required driver software. You can get into the properties of the PCI BUS and update the driver there from disk if you have the driver downloaded from the manufacturer's web site.
is there any point of me looking at win 95 and win98 disks to find the pci bus driver ?
where can i get these drivers from if i dont know the make of mother board?
is there any hope ???
i feel times running out!
nope just magpie my cat with my watch in his mouth!!
