WTD: Chipset driver for Intel 946 and Windows 2000
#1
I have an Intel D946GZIS motherboard and I'd like a chipset driver for the Intel 946 chipset that works with WINDOWS 2000.

I do not believe Intel's website about the D946GZIS motherboard because Intel also claims there is no chipset driver for the 945 chipset that loads under WINDOWS 2000 and I know that is a lie.

So can some point me to an easy place to try a chipset driver for the Intel 946 chipset that loads under WINDOWS 2000?

Thanks.

the main problem here is that windows 2k support was stopped along time ago intel do not have to support that o/s any more.

however with that said intel have a history of bringing out one INF file that fits all o/s and that can be said of version 9.1.2.1008

its not listed on intel download that this version supports windows 2k but in the unpacked readme file just before the drivers are installed windows 2k is listed.

try and load this version of the drivers with your windows 2k but make sure you have all service packs installed before you try the drivers.

COOL. That worked but for some reason there is still a bang (unknown) in the device manager and being WINDOWS 2000 there is no easy way to see just what is causing the bang unless if you know of something.

Thanks

I've done that lot of times with XP but the details are unavailable on WINDOWS 2000.

Here, I'll tell you what 2000 has: On the drivers tab all you get is Uninstall and Update and on the Resources tab all it shows is memory resources.

No biggie, I have a lot of other computers that I can use for WINDOWS 2000 Server that do not have bangs in the device manager.

Thanks
