Problem installing chipsets

By lukey22
Aug 23, 2008
  1. I recently downloaded updated versions of my chipsets from my manufactors website.
    When trying to install i click the file ( forget what it's called now ) to install it but nothing happens at all. I was wondering if i can download them from somewhere else or someone may know why they wont install?

    If it helps :

    Suppose you write out the file 'name' completely here.

    Yes, it does absolutly nothing.
    Well i can either run or extract it, but either way it does nothing once i run it.

    Set your display to show known file extensions - if it is a rar it must be extracted then run. If a zip, same thing.

    As a side not, that doesn;t seem to be an actual 'chipset' driver package anyway - that FJ thread talks about fixing a card reader.

    I have tried it once I've unZip'd it and with file extensions on but no joy :(

    LoL - running in circles here - that motherboard is 'apparently' a Scaleo P Fuji BUT there is no acknowledgement from their site that they ever heard of your particular component assembly, including chipset.

    Frankly, given the continual degredation of component supplier support I am not surprised. Even SiS used to have better support.

    Tried- failed - sorry.
