proper sequence of driver installation for DFI lanparty sli-dr expert


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can anyone here tell me the proper sequence of installing the drivers for the Expert board. I seem to remember something to do with installing the nf4 drivers the first thing before others, i.e. directx, video. usb, right after completing the XP Pro sp2 install.

In my sig, on my wishlist,was an upgrade to 2GB of Ocz Premier 3200 DDR ram, which just happened.

 

My problems started soon after that and I decided to reinstall XP.

 

Help, please

G'day henseman,

I set my rig up back in Feb/March 2006 but I think I remember how I did it..
:rolleyes:

 

What problems are you having exactly?

Have you set the BIOS up correctly for SATA & SLI?

 

Unless you are running RAID, just load WindozeXP as per normal.

Then when I looked at the Device Manger, I saw the Yellow Exlcamation marks.

 

Now, somebody who knows more than I, might give you better advice, but all I did was...

 

I loaded DirectX 9.0c as per the manual, I had it on one of my HDDs.

 

Then all I did, was load the DFI CD, and load the NF4 Drivers required to remove the Exclamation Marks.

 

I was using the Karajan Module at that stage, so I loaded the drivers for that as well.

 

Then I loaded the nVidia Graphics Drivers.

 

I have a 19" LCD monitor, so I had no probs with the resolutions, until I loaded the nVidia Graphics drivers.

When it re-booted, it was set to 800 x 600 or some silly Resolution.

But you just adjust the screen properties settings and that's fixed.

 

I think that was it.

 

It's never faltered since I fired it up! :)

 

Hope this helps..

Sorry, to hear about your problems. Yet, to me it seems you're looking down the wrong path. System stable with old RAM - and now unstable with new RAM, all other settings unchanged? If so, I wouldn't bet on anything but the RAM settings, mate. Try go from there.

 

EDIT: Just stumbled upon Happy_Games' post on the Win XP tuning vid: Maybe that's more help: http://files.filefront.com/angry_build_1aw...;/fileinfo.html
