NOTE: the WWW: line in pkg-descr was relocated to a WWW= line in Makefile. Each port in FreshPorts has a homepage link. Look for it right after the Description: on each port’s home page.


The emphasis is on know, or recommended by someone I know.

This is the original FreshPorts server, way past useful: RAID, 8GB RAM, etc. The drives need to be wiped and everything recycled.

pkg-message:
For install:
To use these drivers, make sure that you have loaded the NVidia kernel
module, by running
# kldload nvidia (or nvidia-modeset, see below)
on the command line, or by putting «nvidia» (or «nvidia-modeset»,
see below again) on «kld_list» variable in /etc/rc. conf, either manually
or by running
# sysrc kld_list+=nvidia (or nvidia-modeset, see below)
If you build this port with FreeBSD AGP GART driver, make sure you have
agp.ko kernel module installed and loaded, since nvidia.ko will depend
on it, or have your kernel compiled with «device agp». Otherwise, the
NVidia kernel module will not load. Also, please set correct value for
«Option «NvAGP»» in «Device» section of your X11 configuration file.
When building with Linux compatibility support, make sure that linux.ko
module is available as well (or have it compiled in kernel). It can be
loaded via /boot/loader.conf, or later in the boot process if you add
linux_enable=»YES»
to your /etc/rc.conf.
If X.org cannot start and reports
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier.
in /var/log/Xorg.0.log while actually you have «options SYSVSHM»
enabled in kernel, the sysctl «kern.ipc.shmall» should be increased.
Starting with version 358.09, some important functionality of the driver
has been broken out into a separate kernel module, nvidia-modeset. ko.
Users that experience hangs when starting X11 server, or observe
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated MetaModes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): «NULL»
in /var/log/Xorg.0.log should replace «nvidia» with «nvidia-modeset»
in their /boot/loader.conf or /etc/rc.conf configuration files, depending
on how they prefer to load NVidia driver kernel module.
See /usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README for more information.

nVidia nForce 1-3/Windows XP Remixes and Chipset/GPU Drivers

All files below can be downloaded from this eSnips directory if you get a «bandwidth exceeded» message.

The remixes and individual chipset drivers below support all NF1-3 boards and are the latest available. Beta nForce drivers that are marked w/ a «*» are actually beta, while those that are not marked were originally WHQL but have lost certification due to modified INFs. NV no longer officially supports NF1-3, but some of the more recent WHQL chipset drivers are still compatible. Modifying their INFs is necessary to add support for NF1-3 chipsets (only DeviceIDs are added, nothing else is altered).

Then simply copy the extracted «GART» folder from «NVgart440. zip» into this Installer and run «setup.exe».  Do the same thing for each chipset driver to create a «remix».

Cbrom215 (36kb): cbrom Award BIOS mod utility [v2.15]                                                            

How to replace an old RAID BIOS that’s integrated into your motherboard’s BIOS w/ a new RAID BIOS:      

1. Extract cbrom215 to an empty folder on your c: drive (e. g. c:\bios).
2. Extract the new RAID BIOS (e.g. raidbios.bin) and board BIOS (e.g. boardbios.bin) to that same empty folder.                                                                                                                                     3. Open a «Command Prompt» window and type (hit «Enter» after each command):
a) cd c:\bios (this changes the directory to the empty folder you created on your c: drive)
b) cbrom215 boardbios.bin /pci release (this executes cbrom215 and removes the old RAID BIOS from the board BIOS)
c) a or b or c (this is the PCI module where the old RAID BIOS is located within the board BIOS, it should be PCI [A] or PCI [B] or PCI [C] -> choose only one letter)
d) cbrom215 boardbios.bin /pci raidbios.bin (this inserts the new RAID BIOS into the board BIOS)
4. You’ll see a message «Adding raidbios. bin…..51.2%» and will never show 100%, this is normal. To see if it worked, type: cbrom215 boardbios.bin /d (this displays all the modules within the board BIOS)
5. You should see the new RAID BIOS at the «PCI ROM[A or B or C]» module. If so, then the modified boardbios.bin is ready to be flashed onto your motherboard.

Initializing Use of Memory Segments — Windows drivers

  • Article

  • 2 minutes to read

Memory segments, in the context of the display driver model for Windows Vista and later (WDDM), describe the graphics processing unit’s (GPU) address space to the video memory manager. Memory segments generalize and virtualize video memory resources. Memory segments are configured according to the memory types that the hardware supports (for example, frame buffer memory or system memory aperture).

To initialize how it uses memory segments, the Microsoft DirectX graphics kernel subsystem (Dxgkrnl.sys) calls the display miniport driver’s DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo function. To direct the display miniport driver to return information about memory segments from the DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo call, the graphics subsystem specifies either the DXGKQAITYPE_QUERYSEGMENT or the DXGKQAITYPE_QUERYSEGMENT3 value in the Type member of the DXGKARG_QUERYADAPTERINFO structure.

The graphics subsystem calls the display miniport driver’s DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo function twice for segment information. The first call to DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo retrieves the number of segments supported by the driver, and the second call retrieves detailed information about each segment. In the calls to DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo, the driver points the pOutputData member of DXGKARG_QUERYADAPTERINFO to populated DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT structures (for a driver version prior to Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) 1.2) or to populated DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3 structures (for a WDDM 1.2 and later driver).

In the first call, the pSegmentDescriptor member of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT (for a driver version prior to WDDM 1.2) or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3 (for a WDDM 1.2 and later driver) is set to NULL. The driver should fill only the NbSegment member of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3 with the number of segment types that it supports. This number also indicates the number of unpopulated DXGK_SEGMENTDESCRIPTOR (for a driver version prior to WDDM 1.2) or DXGK_SEGMENTDESCRIPTOR3 (for a WDDM 1. 2 and later driver) structures that the driver requires from the second call to DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo.

In the second call, the driver should fill all members of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3. In the second call, the driver should populate an array the size of NbSegment of DXGK_SEGMENTDESCRIPTOR or DXGK_SEGMENTDESCRIPTOR3 structures in the pSegmentDescriptor member of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3 with information about the segments that the driver supports.

In both calls to DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo, the pInputData member of DXGKARG_QUERYADAPTERINFO points to a DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTIN structure that contains information about the location and properties of the AGP aperture. If no AGP aperture is available, or if one is present but no appropriate GART driver is installed, the information about the AGP aperture is set to zero. If no AGP aperture is present, the display miniport driver should not indicate, in the pSegmentDescriptor array of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3, that it supports an AGP-type aperture segment. If an AGP-type aperture segment is indicated in such circumstances, the adapter fails to initialize.

During initialization, because memory is plentiful, memory for the paging buffer can be allocated from a specific segment. The video memory manager allocates memory for the paging buffer from the segment specified in the PagingBufferSegmentId member of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3. The driver indicates the identifier of the paging-buffer segment in the second call to DxgkDdiQueryAdapterInfo. The driver should also specify the size in bytes that should be allocated for the paging buffer in the PagingBufferSize member of DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT or DXGK_QUERYSEGMENTOUT3.

For more information about memory segments and working with paging buffers, see Handling Memory Segments and Paging Video Memory Resources.

Question, I have an old motherboard Soltek SL-75FRN2-L, with nVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 chipset. Soltek no longer exists, their website too. So now I don’t know where to get and update the drivers for my mother. Nobody will advise anything?

In the header I saw that there is
Quote:

nForce 1/2 unified driver package — Windows XP 32/64, 2000
Version: 5.10 (17.09.2004) | WHQL certificate

is it right for me? How to check it?

The description of this package states (Component versions):

— Audio driver (v4. 42)
— Audio utility (v4.44)
— Ethernet driver (v4.42)
— GART driver (v4.36)
— Memory controller driver (v3.38)
— SMBus Driver (v4.04)
— Installer (v4.46)
— NVIDIA driver IDE (v4.46)
Audio drivers will not install on the following nForce2 products: Chaintech 7NJS. Please use the drivers that come with these products to enable audio functionality

The description of my native drivers (those that came with my mother in the kit) states the following:

Audio driver 3.06 (WHQL’d)
Audio utilities 3.07
Network driver 2.81 (WHQL’d)
GART driver 2.78 (WHQL’d)

testing an AGP video card on a more modern system / Sudo Null IT News

— But I have such a board, a real dinosaur! — wrote one of the readers of the previous article, — support for 2-core processors, 4 DDR-2 slots and the AGP port, which has already disappeared in our time, — maybe we can put your HD3850 on it and try to conquer new heights?

Last time we managed to launch a top-end 10-year-old video card on the outdated AGP interface and test it in modern games. The ATI Radeon HD 3850, the latest and fastest graphics card to come out for this slot, was a gamer’s dream in 2008. The motherboard proposed by the reader has characteristics unattainable for those times, and with all this, it is 2 years younger than the video card and was released already in 2006. What will happen if they are combined and tested in modern games?

In the last article, we tested the HD3850 AGP in applications and played games. I was already thinking about putting it on the shelf for storage, and I was sorry that we did not manage to reveal its full potential.

And after that, one of the readers wrote that he had just one of the exotic motherboards that works with both a dual-core processor and AGP at the same time. This is a real Frankenstein of his time! Judge for yourself: socket AM2+, up to 8 GB of DDR-2 memory and with all this having an AGP port. I immediately became interested in how it will show itself in conjunction with the AGP Radeon HD 3850 512 Mb.
That’s so good luck! Shall we try?

I propose to go all the way to the maximum upgrade and set up an incredible 12-year-old system in a bunch of the fastest AGP video card in existence and try it in games!

Looking for the perfect upgrade hardware

When, before writing the last article, the top of the existing AGP video cards, HD 3850 512 Mb, fell into my hands, I began to look for information about motherboards that allow you to run something modern and have an AGP interface on their board. Searches led me to several models, in my article I tested the card on one of them, and already in the comments of WebFlyer I wrote:

ASRock released Frankensteins with AGP support — One of the latest AM2NF3-VSTA under AMD Soket AM2+ (Up to Phenom II X4 Deneb inclusive) and 775Dual-VSTA Under Intel LGA775 (up to Conroe Core2Duo inclusive)

Of course, it would be nice to get one of these and see how the HD 3850 works at maximum power!
And so, another user, SunUp, became the reader (with a Read and Comment account) who provided his AM2NF3-VSTA 9 motherboard for a while0303, for which many thanks to him!
This is ASRock motherboard with socket AM2+, 4 DDR2 memory slots, NVIDIA nForce3 250 chipset and AGP 8X port.

Here are its specifications from the official website:

Support for Socket AM2+ / AM2 processors: AMD Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core / Athlon X2 Dual-Core / Athlon 64 / Sempron
Chipset NVIDIA nForce3 250
Hyper-Transport and AMD Cool ‘n’ Quiet 9 Technologies0037
Dual-channel DDR2 1066/800/667/533 (4 x DIMM) non-ECC support, unbuffered, max 16 GB
ASRock AM2 Boost: ASRock’s patented technology to increase memory performance by up to 12.5% ​​
Untied Overclocking: Wider overclocking FSB tolerances thanks to the AGP/ PCI
bus lock
Hybrid Booster — ASRock
Safe Overclocking Technology
1 x AGP 8X

Support for 2-core Athlon X2 processors!

Supplied from 2006

When SunUp gave me this board, it was right in the box.

The box contained: a disk with drivers, a board, a plug for it and a book with instructions.

Again, this is a 2006 model, think about how carefully he kept it!

Besides, the board also included an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processor, just what you need!

Let’s try to increase the performance to the maximum

What can be collected on its basis? We already have a video card for it. Let’s add the attached processor. Stop… Let’s once again pay attention to the characteristics from the list of supported processors.

Some boards with AM2+ have support for processors already on socket AM3. So it turned out this time too — despite the fact that it is not indicated on the main page in its description, the board can work with Athlon 2 X4 and Phenom 2 X4 quad-core processors.

AMD has a feature called backwards socket compatibility, where some older processors can work on motherboards with a previous generation processor socket.

Therefore, wandering around the expanses of Avito, I found an AMD Athlon 2 X4 processor with a frequency of 3000 MHz for it. Already better! Let’s look for memory. I found 4 DDR2 modules of 2 GB each. So, the processor, memory and hard drive are there, let’s start the assembly.

Test system assembly

We put the processor, 8 GB of memory, video card. I chose Windows 7 as the OS to start with.
Installing the system … Everything is OK, all the drivers are already on the supplied disk. It remains to install the driver for the HD 3850.

Signs of the old board
The motherboard has a power connector — another 20 pins, not 20 + 4, as it is now.
When you press the power button on the radio, there is interference in the FM band. If you are listening to the radio at this point, it will most likely be muted. New boards don’t do that anymore.
The board has only 2 SATA connectors of the first generation.

First obstacle
No matter how much I tried to find a driver for Windows 7, I did not succeed. The driver was nowhere, from XP did not fit. Windows worked in 800×600 mode and showed error 43.

I began to look for information on how to get around error 43, and came across a forum where one of the users provided a link to the features of video card support by this motherboard:
www.asrock.com/ support/note/AM2NF3-VSTA. html

ATI AGP Card (Windows XP 64-bit / Vista 32-bit / Vista 64-bit):
Under Windows Vista 32-bit / Vista 64-bit OS, this motherboard does not support ATI AGP card because NVIDIA does not provide nForce3 250 relevant driver for Windows Vista OS.
* AGP texture acceleration will be disabled under Windows XP 64-bit OS.

What does it mean in translation:

ATI AGP cards (Windows XP 64-bit / Vista 32-bit / Vista 64-bit):
Under OC Windows Vista 32-bit / Vista 64-bit, the motherboard does not support ATI AGP cards, because NVIDIA did not provide a proper driver for the nForce3 250 chipset for Windows Vista.
*Hardware acceleration of AGP textures under Windows XP 64-bit will be disabled.

Please! Buy our super cool motherboard, but you can’t put half of the good graphics cards in it. And there is not a single mention of this on the main page with a description of the board on the manufacturer’s website. However, NVIDIA did not provide support for ATI video cards in Windows Vista (and, consequently, in subsequent ones), but provided it with support for their own video cards.

I must say that at that time there was a peak of confrontation between ATI and NVidia. Then they had fierce fights, both for the hearts of buyers, and high-profile showdowns in the courts for patents. I think this is an echo of the events of that time.

Yes, and under Windows XP they are installed through a small dance with a tambourine: first you need to install the NVidia GART driver, and only then the video card driver. When installing this additional driver on Windows 7, the OS «falls» into a blue screen.

In other words, this and my Radeon can only be used under Windows XP, not even 64-bit. In XP, the maximum version of DirectX is 9c, so the trick with launching GTA 5, as in the previous article, will not work here.

(check out the music in the video)

But what about 8 gigabytes of RAM? The board is absolutely not adapted for comfortable work with any of the ATI video cards!

So how do you achieve the desired performance?

I began to think. I have an ATI video card, no Vista support. This means there will be no DirectX 10. There is no support for 64-bit systems, and this is only 3.5 GB of RAM from the 8 that I have.

In the comments x86d0cent wrote about this:

In general, not necessary — this is also solved using PAE. Those. you can install Linux (at least Left4Dead 2 and Team Fortress 2 are definitely under SteamOS) or Win2003, or screw it to XP.

PAE is already one option. But I would like to test a 64-bit operating system. Wait, the restrictions on the manufacturer’s website don’t say anything about Windows 2000 and 2003 Server! What if you try them?

Select operating system

Windows XP

In order for the system to “see” all 8 GB of RAM, at first I tried to see if the PAE physical address extension would work in Windows XP. No matter how much I tried, but Windows XP, although it wrote about PAE in the system properties, refused to see more than 3GB of memory.

Later I came across an article on how to add PAE to Windows XP, here it is:
https://geektimes.ru/post/202406/
In short, for this you need to replace several files, the archive is attached there.
I did everything as it was written in it, downloaded the files, replaced them, but in my case I got only the inevitable Blue Screen.

Another option

The second option, according to the comments to the same article, was to create a virtual disk from unused memory and transfer the paging file to it. I installed SuperSpeed ​​RamDisk Plus and tried it.

However, all that was waiting for me was just the same blue screen. Perhaps with other programs it would have worked, but it has already taken me too long to try. You will have to forget about 8 gigabytes on Windows XP. 9Ol000 /6537093

Aida64

CPU Queen

CPU PhotoWorxx

CPU Hash

Windows 2000 Server

Next I tried Windows 2000. Here I enabled PAE without problems, I just added 9 to Boot.ini0003

 /PAE 

The OS saw 7.339 GB of RAM. However, it was not possible to install the driver on the video card: none of the existing ones was suitable.

When I started installing the driver for the video card, I realized how outdated Windows 2000 is: even with the latest update, almost no modern programs run under it.

No software is launched, you can’t install a video card, Windows 2000 is not suitable for us.

Windows 2003 Server

Once, during the release of Windows XP, I liked this system much more than XP itself: there were no unnecessary embellishments in it, moreover, it worked more stable, without incomprehensible failures that XP of the first versions sinned, and, as it seemed to me, , faster. Therefore, I used it as the main OS on my computer.

For this computer, I downloaded a light build of 2003 Lopatkin with PAE already included.

The system has already seen all 8 gigs. I installed the preliminary GART driver, then I began to install the video card driver, for this I substituted the video driver from XP. Happened.
In total, we have a system with a working video card, one of the top quad-core processors for this board, and 8 gigabytes of RAM.

And now let’s do what I wanted to do for so long at that time, but could not because of system limitations: disable the SWAP file. The performance becomes much higher, these endless accesses to the hard disk finally disappear!

If configured properly, this operating system takes up less RAM than XP. All I had to do was remove components that I didn’t need for everyday use and disable unused services, and I usually disabled all graphical interface elements to make it work faster. In addition, not everyone knows, but this server OS can also play 3D games. To do this, however, you will have to change some settings.

After installing the video driver in the Display Properties, in the Advanced tab, you must enable hardware acceleration to «Full». Then restart the computer, type DxDiag in the command line and there, in the Display tab, enable DirectDraw acceleration. Also,
in Windows 2003 it is sometimes necessary to turn on the sound service, and without this there will be no sound,
and the volume control in the tray will be inactive.

Now you can run 3D applications.

Performance test

Let’s try FurMark first. Here is the test result:

Under Windows XP, the result is almost the same.

3DMark 06

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/18029130

. And nowhere did I see anyone at that time running 3DMark as smoothly as it does on my system today.

Geekbench 2

http://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench3/2653859

For some reason, Windows 2003 is defined as Windows XP, however, in 3DMark 06 too.

What if you try 64-bit Windows 2003? But what if. ..?
We install.

Windows 2003 64-bit

Processor characteristics under 64-bit Windows 2003

For comparison with processors from previous tests of this video card

Pentium D 3.4 GHz

Pentium 4 524 overclocked to 3.74 GHz

We install the preliminary driver, then we replace the video card driver with the driver from 64-bit XP — it seems to be installed. The video card has been determined, we set the human resolution.

About the 64-bit system in the manufacturer’s description, as I already wrote, it says:

*AGP texture hardware acceleration under Windows XP 64-bit will be disabled.

Turn on hardware acceleration in Display Properties, set DirectX. And voila!

Apparently, the manufacturer forgot to disable HD3850 support in 64-bit Windows 2003. This particular card model is not listed in the list of limitations. Admittedly, it doesn’t make much sense anyway. The performance of 3D applications in a 64-bit system turned out to be much lower than in a 32-bit one.

Benchmark

3DMark 06

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/18029308

Or maybe it will work in 64-bit XP?
I installed Windows XP 64-bit and everything happened again. 8 GB are seen, drivers are installed, but only the performance is again low, exactly the same as in 64-bit 2003 Server.

SteamOS

SteamOS just didn’t install. It was not possible to install it either from a USB flash drive or from a CD. The installation just stopped or hung.

Well, to test our system in games, let’s use 32-bit Windows 2003 with PAE enabled.

As a result, we have a fairly modern system:

Processor: AMD Athlon 2 X4 3000 MHz
RAM: 8 GB DDR2 Dual Channel
Video card: Radeon HD3850 512Mb AGP
Hard drive: SSD 16 GB (I took several hard drives to install different OS on them)
Power supply: 500 W

True, the OS is outdated, only Windows 2003 Server.

Game testing

Left4Dead 2

Even at the maximum settings, the FPS reaches 60, and it’s quite comfortable to play!

In Team Fortress 2, which is also made on the Source engine, the situation is the same, but the FPS at the maximum possible settings reaches 40-45. It’s also quite comfortable to play. Let me remind you that on the previous motherboard, the frame rate per second was significantly lower. The higher speed of the processor affected.

World of Tanks Update 1.0

The game launches, but Windows XP only supports DirectX 9, so the default «Enhanced» and «Lighting and Post-Processing» graphics settings are disabled.

Second Obstacle

The game can only be started on Standard settings. In the last article, DirectX 10 worked for us, and therefore all settings worked there.
After digging around on the Web, I came across one article where someone already got out of this situation. To do this, he installed the game on a modern computer, set the necessary graphics settings in the game, copied the “preferences.xml” file from it and replaced it on his system. I did the same and it worked.

The «Enhanced» setting is dimmed. Well, okay, let’s test the game with these parameters on high settings.

The game shows 35-55 FPS, which is quite playable! The update introduces a great improvement in graphics, and the performance is on top. The game has good optimization, and it moves well even for not very fast gaming systems.

Kerbal Space Program

Everything is quite playable on medium settings

In outer space, in the absence of other surfaces and objects, the FPS is quite high.

All of these games can be played quite comfortably at medium to high settings. 3D applications slow down the most when the Antialiasing option is enabled. True, to be honest, I don’t see much difference after turning on this parameter with my own eyes. It seems to me that the game just seems to be slowing down, with almost no visual changes. Guys, tell me, are you really in DirectX 9and 10 do you visually distinguish Antialiasing X4 from X8 or is it just my peculiarity? Although, at that time, everyone tried to buy a video card with support for X4 or X8 anti-aliasing and claimed that this option made a dramatic difference in graphics.

Additional tests that run only on 64-bit OS

From the «new» motherboard, processor and Radeon HD 3850, an entry-level gaming system and a good working computer turned out.

And here is another opinion on how to use this video card:

I have a HIS Radeon HD 4670 IceQ AGP (1Gb) in my old computer. All the time I thought that this is the fastest card with AGP. By the way, as far as I remember, at one time this card was even on the list recommended for bitcoin mining, and the only one with AGP.

On Windows XP, not a single mining program started, but I specifically installed it on an old motherboard and Pentium-D, installed Windows 7 64-bit and tried to mine.
Unfortunately, no matter how much I tried to combine drivers, system components, etc., I was unable to enable OpenCL support, although the specifications of this card indicate support for OpenCL 1.0. Therefore, all miners either do not start, or show a lack of OpenCL support. However, the MinerGate miner started up and this is what it showed.

GPU Mining, as in others, «Not supported device»

In addition, I will give a few tests and games that also had to only need Windows 64-bit, starting with Windows Vista. All this is running on a Pentium D 3.4 GHz processor.

Games on motherboard with Pentium D 3.4

Subnautica 2018 version

At minimum settings and 1920×1080 it is quite playable, but shows a lack of system resources (of course, the board with Pentium D supports only 2 GB of RAM)

Metro 2033 Last Light Redux

Resolution is 1280×800, graphics settings are minimal.

FPS approximately 20-35

in open areas FPS sags, and in the corridors everything is in order

performance test

3DMARK 06 on Pentium D

9000 9000 https://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/18028389

Passmark 9

https://www.passmark.com/baselines/v9/display.php?id=995595177724

Geekbench 4

https :/ /v4/cpu/7534268

What is the result?

As a result, we got an entry-level gaming computer. Not all games run, but those that run on it can be played quite comfortably. Oh, if it weren’t for the limitation with drivers for OS higher than Windows XP! From this I can conclude that at that time it was very difficult to “open” a top-end video card. Or I had to limit myself to single-core processors, or 2 gigabytes of RAM, or, as in my case, only outdated operating systems.

Therefore, those wishing to tinker with such a video card can be advised to do it purely out of sporting interest.
Or if you want to try…

Then you will have to deal with:

1. Lack of drivers for such hardware for new OS
2. Finding the right additional hardware for you
3. Search for all kinds of adapters for the required connectors
4. The lack of software for outdated operating systems such as Windows XP and 2003 Server: for example, Google Chrome will no longer be installed on them, Skype too, and you will have to look for its old version, and so on. The new software will constantly show errors during installation and operation.
5. Endless search for the necessary components and installation of updates for operating systems when installing modern software
6. To change the cooling system, lubricate its components and replace thermal paste wherever possible
7. Perhaps some of the solutions found in this article will help you. And take the advice of the sage from the previous article

Shaman’s wisdom

Once, when one of the Indians urgently needed to mark the land for all the inhabitants of his village, he sat down at his laptop, donated by his mother two years ago. However, the laptop was slow, and the Indian did not have time to complete the work before the moon rose.
— What to do? he asked his neighbors in the village. I don’t want to buy a new laptop from our village shop. After all, he still has not so many winters! It’s rip-off.
“Go to the shaman,” the neighbors said, “He has learned the wisdom that allows you to be content with little.
An Indian came to the shaman and begged:
— Tell me how I can get the job done on time without buying a new laptop!
The shaman thought, frowned and said:
Have you tried installing an SSD?
— Not.
— Put it on, and you can use your laptop until you get bored yourself!
An Indian went to a store and traded an SSD drive there for only five kilograms of his alpaca wool. He was satisfied with the performance of his computer, used it for many more years and praised the wisdom of the shaman of their village.

When reviving such obsolete components, you always need to be patient, take a tambourine and get ready for relentless dancing.

How to update the chipset driver of any motherboard? Detailed instructions.

The motherboard driver is a kind of program that is responsible for the correct operation of the entire system. Delayed updating of drivers can lead to serious problems with the “innards” of the computer and system crashes. Therefore, updating them is very important.

Let’s consider the easiest way to update through Device Manager. To get to the treasured section, click «Start», then «Control Panel». In the new window, click on «Hardware and Sound». At the top, under Devices and Printers, click on Device Manager. There is a blue-yellow shield near it, so you will find it right there. So, the first stage is over, we got into the «Device Manager». There is another quick way to open Device Manager. Go to «Computer» by double-clicking on the icon on the desktop, or through the «Start» menu. A window has opened where the hard drives are located. At the top there is a blue bar with buttons, click «System Properties». A window appeared with the basic data of the installed system and the details of the computer. After studying this page, you will learn:

  • the amount of RAM on your computer;
  • processor specifications;
  • system capacity;
  • Windows information;
  • video card specifications (does not show integrated video cards).

Do not forget about the original goal — go to the Device Manager. You will find the button of the same name in the upper left corner, next to the blue-yellow shield. We click and we find ourselves in the Device Manager.

Go to the «System Devices» tab. A whole list of names comes up. We are looking for those lines where 9 is written0037 « Chipset».
AMD Athlon may be used instead of Intel(R) — depends on the manufacturer. Right-click on the line and select «Update Drivers». In the drop-down window, select the automatic search for updated drivers. If the driver is outdated, then the system will find a new one and offer to install it. If the latest version is installed, then you will see a sign that says «The most suitable software is already installed.» In order to «refresh» the motherboard drivers. you can get product support from the manufacturer. It is very easy to do this for laptops. You just need to go to the official website of the laptop brand and download the required driver. If you do not know its name, just turn on the search for all new drivers, and you will have a complete set installed. It is more problematic to update motherboard drivers for desktop PCs, as they are assembled from different parts. First you need to find out the model of the motherboard. A quick way to do this is to hold down the Windows key + R and enter the command “dxdiag” or “msinfo32” in the field that appears. The items «Manufacturer» and «Model» determine the creator of the motherboard. Now go to its official website and find the driver you are interested in. You can read more about how to find out the motherboard model

It’s actually easy to update the motherboard driver. Just be careful in the actions and before doing anything, read the update instructions again. If you are not confident in your abilities, ask a knowledgeable friend or colleague to help you with this task.

Hello, dear readers.

New system (or motherboard) boards have two functional modules. The first is a southbridge chip that interacts with various interfaces. The second is the northern one, which serves the memory and processor. For the correct collaboration of these two components, special software is used. In order to always get the most out of your equipment, you need to constantly install newer versions of the program. This will allow you to work with the desired applications at the proper speed. But how to update motherboard chipset driver? After all, this is in fact the most important part of the device.

The first thing you need to find out for yourself — do you need to update? If you have old equipment installed, it is advisable to do this. Of course, it is impossible to say that without modification you will significantly lose performance. But in general, performance should increase. This will also eliminate errors that could be associated with this component. So the benefits are obvious.

But in the case when you are using equipment that is not at all new, problems may arise with the update. So you have to even roll back the system. Therefore, it is better to first evaluate your capabilities. It’s also a good idea to go online first to find out what people are saying. To do this, in the search engine you need to write the model of your motherboard with the phrase « driver update

«. And the first results will be messages from forums where people share their experiences.

Find out the chipset version using the built-in features ( )

To find out the version of the motherboard with the Intel chipset, you need to do a few steps:

However, this option is also suitable for the AMD chipset. So try.

Sometimes it happens that the corresponding line does not contain the information we need.

Another option is to visually inspect the board itself. To do this, it will be enough just to open your system unit.

Using additional software ( )

Another equally effective way to update chipset drivers is to use third-party software to find out the model.

Although there are many such developments today, many experts agree that it is best to use CPU-Z for this. This utility easily determines the type and model of the chipset. To do this, you need to make several movements:

This method is suitable when you are about to change « firewood

» on a laptop. After all, spinning it to find out the model will be problematic.

To update the driver, go to the developer’s website and find the appropriate software. Download and run the file. Using the prompts, install the software. This may take up to ten minutes. After the end of the process, reboot.

Your hardware should now work without any errors. In addition, the speed of data processing will noticeably increase.

Manual

The motherboard is a fairly complex piece of equipment. It consists of several separate devices. At the same time, similar models of motherboards may differ in a number of characteristics. Instead of looking for drivers for each device on your own, use the Driver Pack Solution application.

Visit the site www.drp.su and download the indicated program. To do this, you will need the uTorrent application or its equivalent. Wait for the files to download completely and open the directory where Driver Pack Solution was saved.

Run the application file named dps and wait until the connected devices are initialized. Click the «Settings» button and activate the following items: «CPU temperature», «Install unsigned drivers» and «Expert mode».

Now expand the «Drivers» tab and examine the list of files that are available for installation on this computer. Highlight the items that apply to the motherboard. Usually they are called «Chipset». To ensure safety, when installing drivers, select all items that are not related to the video adapter.

Click the Install button and wait for the Driver Pack Solution program to complete. The final window will contain a message asking you to restart your computer. Click the «Restart now» button.

After logging into the operating system, launch the «Device Manager» menu. Make sure there are no exclamation marks next to the hardware names.

If you are unable to update your drivers automatically, go to your motherboard manufacturer’s website. Download the necessary files after selecting the equipment model. Update the drivers using the Device Manager menu options.

Choosing a motherboard is a responsible task. Not every sales assistant will be able to tell you in detail about the pros and cons of the model you are interested in. The motherboard is characterized by many parameters: chipset, socket, device slots and RAM. If you set a framework for yourself within which you will choose this device for yourself, then this choice for you will be the solution to a simple equation, as in the 5th grade.

You will need

  • A computer hardware store where you can select a motherboard based on your requirements.

Manual

The motherboard can be conditionally divided into several categories. As a result, among all the models you can choose the right model. To do this, you need to decide on the choice of all the characteristics of the future motherboard, and yours will express «words of gratitude» with clear and fast work. Chipset. The choice of this component of the motherboard must be taken seriously. Chipset manufacturers have recently appeared on the modern technology market quite a lot. Competitors include: Intel, Amd and Nvidia. When choosing a specific chipset, please note that when installing dual Nvidia, it is not recommended to buy a chipset from the same manufacturer. There are chipset models from Intel that support dual SLI-. The latest version of the chipset from Intel (X58) even supports 3 video cards. Do not forget that the chipset should be selected for a specific processor manufacturer, because. A chipset that supports an Intel processor will not work with AMD. When choosing the motherboard-processor ratio, remember that the system bus frequency of these devices must be the same. For example, a processor with a system bus frequency (FSB) of 533 MHz will not work with a chipset that has an FSB lower or higher than this value.

Socket. When choosing a motherboard socket, it must be compared with the future processor. For example, the ASUS M2A74-AM motherboard requires an AM3 socket processor, i.e. The processor must be the same socket as the motherboard.

The game may not be consistant because agp is deactivated lineage 2
From time to time, when entering La2, such an inscription appears. «The game may not be consistant because AGP is deactivated. Please activate AGP for consistancy.

» before dr. web found 2 files in the System Volume Information, killing which the inscription no longer appeared for a while .. but then again something was uploaded to the computer from the Internet and AGP again became inactive. now dr. Web does not find 2 of these files. Help Activate what should I do?

Hmmm, if I understand correctly, then %windir%/sistem32/dxdiag.exe is there in the video settings pimp AGP texture acceleration [Enable / Disable] click and that’s it.

Then update the video card and motherboard drivers, and then try dxdiag again.
you have nforce. the latest firewood does not include the GART driver you need. find the version of firewood 5.10 there it is
if you have AGP, but no NForce, then download fresh DirectX 9c which is
By the way, sometimes it happens to me too
computer boots up. on the monitor are standard 60hz
without drivers for vidyuhu in general.
in short, reboot helps me

Apparently, this is what the author of the advice had in mind to install fresh DX 9. 0c

Hmm, I have the same problem. DX9C doesn’t help the new one even=\

All this is solved very simply.
We go into the laptop’s power settings and set everything to maximum performance. After that, the laptop stops using the core built into the processor, the entire processing goes to a discrete graphics card. Increases FPS, improves picture quality.

I think it will be useful to many.
p.s moderators, fix it somewhere or transfer it to solving problems with launching the client.
