Problems Some problems can’t be solved with the standard means. By Stanislav Garmatyuk and Michael Zakusilo. There we have to play with assumptions since there is no official information on their validity. The users of the Windows 98 SE can solve this problem having loaded the patch from Microsoft which can be found at www. Most motherboards use an external chip to provide hardware monitoring functionality which takes up PCB space and adds the cost of the chip to the motherboard.

The 4-in-1 Drivers Pack includes only VSD variant as a chipsst for everybody, and if you are an advanced user I recommend you to set the Miniport Driver from a separate distributive disc. VIA Technologies for the shortest time became a leading manufacturer of chipset for motherboards.

There we have to play with assumptions since there is no official information on their validity. It becomes difficult to define what sort of hardware is guilty motherboard, chipset, video card, video chip. In order the principles on which VIA chipsets are based to be comprehensive we divided the technical part into two sections devoted to the chips known as north and south bridges. After installation and rebooting vt82c686s everything in vy82c686a initial state.

List of VIA chipsets

Now we can built some virtual raw of the VIA north bridges having concentrated not on the “external” chipsets’ and bridges’ names but on the “internal” qualities, i. That’s why there is only one thing I can recommend you – you should either avoid the specified combination or test properly vhipset machine on some Direct3D-application when assembling the computer.


Concluding remarks The main aim of this article is to explain how to solve problems which arouse with handling VIA chipsets. The drivers for them are simply included into the set of driver database of the Windows 98, and the OS itself defines the corresponding functional elements of Intel chips and sets support drivers for them in the course of installation. Besides, the PLE doesn’t support an interface for the external AGP-video card what simplified and made cheaper the chipset and boards on its base.

The reason is that the driver of the game port vjoyd. By Stanislav Garmatyuk and Michael Zakusilo. Practice What chipset drivers are and what they are for The drivers are necessary for the OS for correct operation with any chipset.

It means that all vt2c686a are formally one chip. And today we are introducing this article in the form of an overall practical “guide to action” which at the same time contains the required technical information. The integrated hardware monitoring can monitor 5 voltages including the voltage supplied to the A chip itselfthree temperatures including the temp of the A and two fans.

This helps to bring the cost of motherboards using the A down to costs viq than what the Chipwet implementations placed them at. An article on the practical features of assembling and adjusting xsystems on the VIA Technologies chipsets is necessary for a long time already, this issue has become of utmost importance the last year when their number has increased much.


VIA chipsets: myths and reality

These Chipwet are copied into the device database of the Windows in the course of installation of the driver usually to C: Vy82c686a motherboards use an external chip to provide hardware monitoring functionality which takes up PCB space and adds the cost of the chip to the motherboard.

Why is this so special? This is a feature the AMD South Bridge does not support, one reason why many motherboard manufacturers chose to go with the A over the AMD in their Athlon motherboard implementations. VIA looks at it this way: In this case you should undertake the complete reinstallation of the system with the correct setting of the drivers. For example, all 3dfx based video cards don’t support DiME it’s connected with architecture of the chipsthat’s why the GART-driver gives them nothing.

Now, the A is back once vt82f686a with the Apollo KX chipset. If the routing is incorrect many devices won’t be able to implement their functions correctly and can even rouse errors. South bridges Currently, they use three south bridges on the boards based on the VIA chipsets: You should know these problems and you should be able to use non-standard means for their solving.
