Try putting in the CD which belongs with the motherboard.

26-09-2003, 05:44 PM

Jeepers beetle, you don't half get into trouble quick:O

Is this your new computer by any chance? and what did it do to make you think such drastic action was needed?

If this is going to happen to you a lot you really do need to get into drive imaging using Ghost or other similar program so that you don't have to get into all this heavy technical stuff. You just start the imaging process then go away and have a cup of tea. When you come back, everything is sweet and as it was.

If it came with the new motherboard, and it has the name "VIA" on it, it's probably your best chance. You might have to browse a bit on it to find the AGP directory it seems to be asking for.

26-09-2003, 06:05 PM
I'd say ignore it,untill the process of reloading windows is finished,then load on the motherboard drivers from the motherboard cd.By the looks of the file name your motherboard is running the via chipset,If you dont have the cd then the via 4-in-1 driver package is easy to track down thru google.

26-09-2003, 06:07 PM
Running the file name trhru google turned up this.


Whiich apears to be a stand alone via agp driver.

26-09-2003, 06:09 PM
Actually,ignore that,from the comments thats a user modified driver.

So,load the drivers from the cd or grab the via 4-in 1 drivers from the net.

got it sorted ...... when all else fails ring somebody!!!!!!

no really ended up ignore / cancel that option and let it go from there,

and its still going now, doing a win xp home set up crap

and Billy T no its not the work new puter its the one no longer in warraty and has no company by that name running in NZ anymore :D.

and its fine now..... or seems to be going ok and ill let you know how i get on at the finish....

as it wasnt in my notes that it was going to ask this i panicked a little but got it sorted and one phone call $$$$ later nerves settled and coffee time....

and also they said they replaced the mother board but gave me know details of what i have now and know new disk with it....
so went into bios and checked it out and changed it to boot from cd etc and went from there , and isnt this what a geek is being about?
scarying the living daylights out of yourself and all other people on pf1 as well????

thank god for weekends......

so if all works out and i actually get win xp home working .... do i get a choccy fish ? or do i have to give every one else one?

Have you got your motherboard CD - the one with the VIA name on it? If you have one, just load the motherboard drivers from it. If you don't have the CD, from the link that metla posted, you need to download VIA Hyperion 4in1 v4.49, released 20 August 2003 (http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=300) - read the installation instructions given on the site. Once downloaded, don't unzip the file, but copy it onto a CD and then transfer it to the other PC - then unzip and install it (choose the quick install option).

26-09-2003, 09:18 PM
ok first up im presuming its this mother board thing.... VIA as thats the one it said i didnt have ? (error sort of thing box)

and two i have no idea how to find it on my puter even if it was there where to look or anything at mo.

have had another look at this site of metla's (thank you metla)
and actually had time to read it a little.... but it does nt actually say xp ? but am presuming its talking about all latest systems as such ( anything in 2000?
and yes i had worked out ill need to download it onto a CD and then transport it to other puter.

thats presuming its not an auto unzip file thing.

and hey presto should have all correct info needed huh?

thanxs all for your help and putting up with beetles escapades again... :D


26-09-2003, 09:24 PM

You shouldn't have any probs with activation.
I reactivated My XP Pro Upgrade on a completly new computer after 18months & had no problems.
!st time I activated on telephone Via modem & 2nd time I used net.

Beetle, you have set up your dialup connection to Xtra and Clear, haven't you? The modem won't work unless it knows where to go......

> and i was told half an hour and ill be all sweet ?

Yeah, well, that is how long most people take. But they don't have a habit of throwing sticks in the works! :p :D
