Preferred Solution: Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility Benchmarks?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

While I've never come across any tests, from my own experience it seems to make a difference.

I have an Asus P8B75-M LX PLUS motherboard (B75 chipset) on an assembled PC. Asus does not support it for Windows 10. I have a clean install of Windows 10 (I had Win7 in the past but completely reformat the hard disk and reinstall Win10 from scratch). Windows 10 seems to autoinstall every driver it needs and I have no issue in the device manager. I see there is Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility for my chipset although Intel says it is preferable to install the vendor (which in my case does not exists for Windows 10). I wonder however what is this driver for? What is this driver supposed to do? Intel is pretty vague about it (just saying that it is a driver for the chipset). Does someone has an answer here? More importantly what do I loose if I don't install it.

Does anyone know if we are supposed to update "Intel Chipset Sofware Installation Utility" driver on a regular basis?
Now that I have the SP2 CD, I'd like to do a clean install of XP. I noticed that Gateway(my computer) only has the 4.0 version of the "intel sofware utility" but now Intel's website has version 5.0. Even more confusing Download.com has a version 6.0.

Intel's website say to refer to your computer makers website, but Gateway always seems to be slow updating drivers.

Should I stick with the 4.0 version? Or should I update to the 5.0 version on Intel's wesite.
----------------
A description of "Intel Chipset Sofware Installation Utility": The Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility installs Windows INF files to the target system. These files outline to the operating system how to configure the Intel chipset components in order to ensure that the following features function properly: Core PCI and ISAPNP Services, AGP Support, IDE/ATA33/ATA66/ATA100 Storage Support, SATA Storage Support, USB Support, Identification of Intel Chipset Components in the Device Manager.
 

A:intel chipset software installation utility

The chipset software is designed to work with the implementation from the motherboard maker, along with the BIOS. Its likely that they adhere to the standard implementation but you do not know that.

So, you update it when you need to, not just because you can, in a nutshell.

Is it failing in some way that you are considering this? Or do you just want to "keep fixing it until it's broken"? (a common event among computer users)

I have an assembled PC with an Asus P8B75-M LX PLUS; which is not supported by Windows 10 according to the Asus Website. My chipset is B75 thus. I think that Asus simply don't want to bother with their slightly older products (I have much more than the minimum specs to run Windows 10).

I have installed Windows 10 from scratch on it, it seems to detect and install every drivers it need with no issue; I have no warning in the device manager. If I navigate to the Intel website; there is an "Intel? Chipset Device Software (INF Update Utility)". They said it is generic and preferable to install the one provided by the motherboard manufacturer. In my case the motherboard manufacturer don't want to bother with Windows 10. But I wonder what's this driver for? Is Windows not able to pick everything it needs automatically? Intel is pretty vague about it and I see nowhere what precise device this driver is supposed to handle. Do someone have an answer?

Version 5.0.2.1002 has been released and can be downloaded from here.

Make sure that your Intel chipset is among the list of supported ones before installing the update.

Once the install is complete, you can verify its install by going into the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Intel - Infinst.

The new version number should appear, along with showing the install to be successful.

hi

This is a bit of a convoluted story but here goes...

I have an old PC (the oldest of several) which in which I want to upgrade 3 PATA HDs for 2 large (500GB) SATA-1 drives.

PC spec = Asus P4 PE, P4 Northwood 533FSB 3.06GHz, 1 GB pc2700 ram, 2 soundcards (I'm a musician), Win XP SP2 etc.

The first thing I did was enable RAID/SATA in BIOS & then install the Promise 376 Fasttrack RAID/SATA driver on all OS partitions (4 in all, spread across the 3 drives).

Now, of course, a get a quick POST message saying that "no RAID/SATA device detected", because I haven't installed them yet. However this message then disappears and my boot manager utility loads as usual (BootIt NG).

Then it occured to me that I hadn't installed either the Intel Application Accelerator or Chipset Software Installation utilities (as listed on the available downloads for P4 PE at Asus site).

So I installed the IAA first on one partition - but when I tried to reboot into this, the "no RAID/SATA" message came up before and after the BootItNG screen and the system rebooted again.

I got it to boot into the partition again & promptly uninstalled the IAA because I thought it was causing me the problem.

Then I installed the Chipset Installation utility.

This time, after rebooting into the "music" partition, many of the music software applications were not sending MIDI to one of the soundcards correctly, and the selected audio drivers had changed (f... Read more

A:Possible problem after Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility installation ?

both the chipset and the IAA are supposed to be installed FIRST THING after the install of the OS...I suspect that the later day install is what caused all the drivers to go *poof*...if your system is operating OK at this point just go with it, but if/when you do a wipe and clean install remember to install these items the first time you boot into your clean install, reboot, then carry on with installing other items...

Owning a P50 is starting to feel like an R & D group or a beta-test group. Which wouldn't be so bad if we weren't trying to run businesses with these machines!The Intel Chipset update fixes "nothing" and addresses "no" problems. It's just recommended by the Vendor. Bios 1.23 fixes "nothing" and addresses "no" problems.There are readme files with these upgrades so why doesn't Lenovo put an intelligent, brief, explanation of who would want the update and why? It could just be one line added to the comment section of the readme file so it doesn't feel so much like you're just rolling the dice...

A:Intel Chipset Device Software v 10.1.1.13

Are your system having issues that you are trying to address, or are you just trying to be proactive? Generally I go by the rule that "If it is not broken, don't fix it" when considering applying updates, but if you are experiencing stablity problems with the systems, updating the drivers, especially the core Chipset Drivers would be a good first step.    The readme files for the two updates you cite state the contain the followign fixes.Chipeset <10.1.1.13>(N1EH106W) fixes - (New) Improved driver's stability.    (These are fixes from Intel that may fix problems if you are experiencing crashes etc.)BIOS Version 1.23 Problem Fixes - APS does not work on specific configration.    (I hate when they use acronyms, but I believe this referes to the Active Protection System that protects the HD from damage due to shock)

Out of curiosity...and I know this might sound like a dumb question.....Lets say you've installed the Intel chipsets first as you are supposed to do...then you install the rest (Intel Management Interface, graphics, SATA, Audio, Network and any other driver updates that are required).
What happens if 6 months later a newer version of the Intel Chipset software becomes available?
!. Do you install it or not?
2. If you do install a newer version of the Intel chipsets do you then have to install all your other hardware drivers ((Intel Management Interface, graphics, SATA, Audio, Network) again? i.e does it affect the previous drivers that you might have installed in a recommended installation order. The reason I ask is because I know its critical that Intel Chipsets are installed before anything else and Im not 100% sure why though I have a good idea.
Would installing a newer version of the Intel Chipsets affect any previous hardware drivers you installed or would it just make the new chipsets more compatible with any new devices you might install in the future without interfering with any previous drivers for any hardware that you have already installed?
Sorry if that sounds like a stupid question. Im just trying to get a better understanding of how the Intel Chipsets work

A:Question about installing Intel Chipset software

What happens if 6 months later a newer version of the Intel Chipset software becomes available?
!. Do you install it or not?



Yes. It updates all the drivers for built in Intel devices on the Mother Board. However, if the MB contains a third party hardware such as Realtek Network controller, Renasas USB3 etc... then you have to update it separately from Realtek/Renasas if they have new drivers for them.





If you do install a newer version of the Intel chipsets do you then have to install all your other hardware drivers ((Intel Management Interface, graphics, SATA, Audio, Network) again?



Again, if the hardware from third party manufacturer then yes you'd have to update those drivers separately.

Are there any known compatibility issues between the Intel 865 chipset and nVidia-based video cards?

The reason I ask is that after a year or more of running this system, suddenly no AGP video card I put into this system will work unless it's in plain VGA mode (no drivers). As soon as I load its proper driver, the system won't go back into Windows 98 or Windows 2000 (dual-boot system). It just hangs with a lot of gobbeldegook on the screen.

All the AGP cards I have here are nVidia-based cards so I have no other type card to test with.

At present, I'm using an old S3 PCI video card and at least it gets into Windows; but, I'm stumped.

A:Intel 865 Chipset and nVidia chipset issues?

Alex, I built quite a few systems with Intel D865PERL boards (865PE chipset) and nVidia video cards and never had a problem. My workbench machine right now is running a D865PERL board with a nVidia card with no problems.

Intel released a new chipset driver on 6/04/2007, version 8.3.0.1013 which covered the 865 family, eg. 865G, 865GV, 865P and 865PE.

http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-009241.htm

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/fil...rating+Systems&lang=eng&strOSs=All&submit=Go!

In the release notes under Issues Resolved, item #4 stated; "Some devices were not updating correctly or at all. Fixed in installer."

http://downloadmirror.intel.com/13499/ENG/relnotes.htm

You may want to try that update. The only problem I see with the update is since you are dual booting, the latest update is OK with Win2K, however Win98 is not mentioned in All Operating Systems. To get back to an 865 chipset driver that covered both Win2K and Win98SE you had to go back to the release of 12/16/2004, version 6.3.0.1007 that covered both Win2K and Win98SE.

Other than updating the chipset driver, I am at a loss to suggest a place to start.

Intel G41 express is the very old, Core 2 equivalent on-motherboard-gpu aka Eaglelake. It only supports up to dx10, it has awful and old drivers, and incomplete opengl support (less apps can run on it). It can idle in recent games like Dota 2 with up to 30fps with everything on low. Key word: idle. Don't even think about playing under more than 15-20fps.

Intel HD Graphics Family is on-cpu-die-gpu aka Sandy Bridge, it's still old now, but does have support for dx11 and opengl, and it has a lot more raw power than x4500(g41), depending on the cpu. It even supports overclocking with sizeable improvements.

Really there is no contest between the two families.

Hello forums, I captured 21 videos of different games and benchmarks of my ThinkPad X220 in order to help people who are interested to find out how much graphical performance the X220 has and if you can do light gaming with it and uploaded them to my YouTube channel. Have a look here. Ii hope they are helpful to make a decision for buying a used X220 :-) Best regards, Janni

The X6800 outclasses the AMD CPUs by a wide margin in virtually every circumstance of performance measurement. The CPU also runs cool in comparison to earlier Intel CPUs and consumes less than 75W. By any standard of measurement the X6800 is an success bringing Intel back on top.

The E6700 which has a rather interesting naming scheme considering itĺs only 266MHz slower than the x6800 while having the same cache and structure is right in there with the x6800 in performance, slower than its bigger brother but faster than the competition. For a suggested MSRP of $530, the E6700 is an easy choice for those wanting a fast system without wanting to shell out a grand.

Hi,

I think my chipset is Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.93GHz and my motherboard is Gigabyte GA-8TRC410M-NF but when using Driver Genius to scan for driver updates it reports back AMD South Bridge Driver (PCI bus) & AMD Chipset Drivers (ATII/O Communications Processor SMBus Controller) need installing/updating ?

Do I need them ? I think I've installed ATI Catalyst before for the SMBus driver but recently uninstalled because I didn't understand what it was for and didn't like the folder/installer

A:AMD Drivers On An Intel Chipset (South Bridge & Chipset Drivers ?)

First thing, check your specs just to be 100% sure of what you have.

Second, Driver Genius and any similar program is not really recommended as they aren't particularly reliable.

Then if you still have drivers for stuff you don't have we can talk about them.

Question is (since my budget is so tight) will I notice any real difference by choosing the less expensive SIS chipset board over the Intel chipset board?
 

A:SIS chipset vs. Intel chipset

Not an answer to your question exactly, just an observation:

I would look for a main board with PCI Express graphics interface instead of AGP.
AGP video cards are still available, but the overwhelming majority of new cards are PCI-X, and they are generally a bit cheaper than their AGP counterparts.

Unless, of course, you want to transfer an AGP card over to the new board.

I have just spent the last hour on the phone to Tiscali Broadband technical support because I am having problems with my modem. They now tell me that my USB chipset (VIA) does not work well with their modem and that I should get an Intel Chipset.

I am not technical and this has confused me, does this mean software of hardware? And if it is software am I able to download it?

Help gratefully received as I am going up the wall every time my connection drops out.
 

A:Intel Chipset

This indeed would be hardware - going from one chipset to another - it means a new motherboard. However, since VIA is one of the largest chip makers i find this hard to believe. You can download newer chipset drivers for VIA from www.viaarena.com - its the Via Hyperion 4-in-1 driver you want.

It may also be possible to get a ethernet Modem instead of USB from Tiscali, although you may need an ethernet card, although it would be easier and cheaper then a new motherboard.

A:Intel Chipset?

You identify your chipset by your motherboard model. The chipset, is a chip on the motherboard , not on your CPU. Intel Core2Duo is your CPU model. You have to find what is your motherboard model so you know which chipset it wears.

There is a handy application that can help you idendify your chipset if you don't know which one it is. It's called CPU-Z. You can download it here: http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpuz_149.zip

Open the application, it gives you a list of your hardware. Go to Motherboard tab and look for chipset

Spend some money on a separate video card. You didn't say anything about your motherboard. Wether it has a PCIe or AGP video connector. If you want to play serious games, it's always good not to use on-board video if you can get away from using it

I have just updated to Intels chip-set 9.2.0.103 and I would like to know if this was the right thing to do.
After installing the new chip-set and restarting my PC I ran the Intel Driver Utility and it was able to see the new chip-set and it said it was valid. Does this mean I did the right thing and should not see any problems?

A:Is the new Intel Chipset right for me?

It ok - generally you gain from any updates relevant to your chipset, and if not they just load previous driver drivers from previous releases - meaning each new release is backward compatible, and each new release covers the new motherboard chipsets as well as the older chipsets.

hi all,

i built my first rig about 2 years ago and its running great. im starting to get more into gaming and want to replace my old mobo. i want to run a 2 vid. card setup. i'm leaning toward an intrl processor and was wondering...... on the intel chipsets, p31/ p35, q33/q35, x38/x48, can you run an Nvidia SLi configuration or a crossfire config. I have always used amd mobos so im not at all formiliar with intel chipsets.
so can these multi-card configs work on intel chipsets? there are in tel chipset boards with 2 or more pci x16 slots so i think so. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186134
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131236
will these run crossfire or sli?
which chipsets will or won't?

thanks a ton!
 

A:Intel Chipset = SLi???

I have a board [foxconn mars] that runs the p35 chipset AND supports ATI crossfire with both slots running @16X.
As for sli, that is nvidia technology and you would have to buy a board with a nvidia sli chipset.

Hi all,

This is my first post hear so I apologise if I get anything wrong.

I installed the INTEL Chipset Driver which was provided with my motherboard and as a result my keyboard & mouse no longer work.

However if I go into the BIOS the keyboard does work and the light on my mouse stays on. It's when the P.C gets to the log in prompt they stop working. Lights on the mouse & keyboard go off.

I have tried plugging the devices into different USB ports with no joy. I plugged my mouse into a laptop and confirmed that still works.

I can't do anything to log in to resolve the problem.

You really need to save for a PCI-E graphic card, onboard graphic cards these days will not do the job intended for gaming ATI and nVidia are most common graphic cards brought these days on the market.

Hey all,
About a month ago, I bought a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4014. Not knowing all that much about computers, I didn't realize that this actual computer is built for business use, rather than gaming. Much to my dismay, I found that Call of Duty 2 does not work on my computer. I meet all of the minimum requirements (1.83 GHz duo processor, 1 gb ram, 120 gb hard drive), but the problem in running the game is in the fact that the chip, the 945 GM (Calistoga), is not 100% directx 9.0 compatible. I think this means that only some games work on directx 9.0, while others do not. That being the case, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this chip and can offer any advice as to what I should do/ what games I could play, etc. Thank you.
 

A:Intel 945GM Chipset help

Only a very few high end laptops are capable of real gaming, the prime purpose of a laptop is business/office work and that is what they are mostly all made for.

Alienware/Dell do make gaming capable laptops, but you realise that when you see the price of them....

It may be better to get this shifted to the Games forum, where someone may have tried out some games on the chipset.

Recently, a game I was playing crashed and alerted me my graphics driver was out of date. I checked what driver I had (Intel 945 Express Chipset on WinXP Home), and went to Intel's website. I downloaded the driver, and ran the setup program. Early in the installation, I see 'Unknown error, setup will now exit.'
That error doesn't really help me. At all.
I tried to install it again yesterday, and the process bar got half-way complete, so I at least had a hope. And then, of course, the same error message greets me again.
Now, though, other programs and games tell me there is a problem with my graphics card and refuse to run. I believe it got so far in the installation and changed something, and wasnt able to resort back to working settings.

Any one able to help? The error message doesn't really give me any clues, so I don't know where to go from here.....
