...chipset drivers which I downloaded from the Intel site. The motherboard/chipset drivers on the original CD didn't find all PCI devices correctly here either. Although my processor was an Intel, the updated driver fixed everything up.
Since your processor is an AMD, try visiting the AMD site and downloading the most recent chipset driver for your chipset.. (You might also try the MSI site but in my case, the provided driver was the same as the one on the CD which came with the board.)
Hope this helps.
i had ordered a barebones kit with an asus motherboard however i thought it was defective returned for another but i am still having the same issue.. so here is my problem... windows xp freezes at startup and can only boot into safe mode (not able to boot to safe mode w/networking either) each time i attempt to do a clean install i am able to load all the drivers except for 1 pci driver & 1 unknown device which i cannot find or recognize even when i diable it it still freezes. i load and reload all the drivers and i see that there are no errors they are all working properly.. but xp still freezes i tested all my hardware individually . i dont see anyone with the same issue online while researching so i really need help to find the correct solution, device and drivers, i am really hoping it is not a defective cpu.
the OS is windows XP home edition version 2002
i have installed these hardware
motherboard - msi k9n6gm am2 socket (switched w/ASUS mobo same issue so mobo is tested ok )
