Not sure what OS you need to be using so you'll have to fill in that info yourself, but those are the links.


I had Windows XP installed to begin with, and it had issues with recognizing the Realtek HD Audio. I also had problems with getting the NVidia drivers to install. By installing the latest set of drivers from both of these sites, it solved all of the problems.

I shucked out the money to get Windows 7 Home Premium edition. Bear in mind that if you are running XP on your system now and you purchased Windows 7, that you cannot upgrade, you will have to format your HD in the process of changing operating systems. Windows 7 can only upgrade from Vista without loss of data.

So if you're planning to get Windows 7 soon, don't bother loading too much or configuring too much on your XP install.

for sure, i just installed it as a test of my cd rom drive etc.. to make sure it wasn't my computer's fault that it wasn't getting installed.
