    Need drivers for this mobo please

    Anyone know where I might be able to find the drivers to this old motherboard? SY-K7VEM Pro I built this around a AMD Duron many many years ago. I pulled it out of the old case and I want to build it again for a elderly friend of mine. I know it works very well I just need the drivers. Thanks in advance for any help. By for now.

    Identify the chipset maker, and then download generic drivers from there.

    www.viaarena.com
    www.sis.com
    www.nvidia.com (also for ULi chipset)

    Same for ethernet and audio devices. If you need help figuring out what's what, ask here. Good luck

    ... but the stuff on www.viaarena.com will be WAY more current than some old product site.

    It isn't that hard once you've figured out what's what. Let's see ...

    The tiny chip above the PCI slots is the audio codec. This one is a VIA, so the VIA audio driver is perfect. Graphics are chipset integrated, downloadable from VIA as well - go by chipset name, KLE133.

    The bigger chip to the right of the PCI slots, with the crab logo, is a Realtek 8139C LAN chip. www.realtek.com.tw

    Everything else either runs on generic drivers (IDE, USB) or on drivers that are in VIA's "chipset drivers" package.

    Install chipset drivers first, then graphics, LAN, and audio.
