1 Answer

Net card idon't have the motherboard support cd, so i have tried to download the drivers myself. So i downloaded all the drivers the ASTRock seemd to offer. But still the netcard doesn't seem working i can'tfind it in the hardware list so itried look for the realtek 8201 cl.Ofcourse Realtek dosn't seem to offer it.

    Thank you Mike,it has worked ! Why am I supprised, + the nvidia firewall is what was included in the package seems fine to me, still though I have minor problem with the 2.0 usb port still slow, maybe because the service pack 3 was first installed not the chipset driver at that time I thought the SP3 will solve my problem. Maybe I should reinstall the SP3 now that the chipsett driver is on. Thanks again Mike

Hi bodfer, did you go to this ASRock site?
The nic card driver is with-in the NVIDIA all in 1 driver package ver: 5.10 for win 2000 & Win XP. (Its part of the motherboard which is part of the chipset). Not every board lists the nic card driver separately. The Asrock K8UPGRADE-NF3 Mb uses the nVidia nForce3 chipset.
To update your chipset drivers go to this nVidia web site. Choose these from the dropdown menu.
Product Type: Legacy
Product Series: nForce 3 Series
Operating System: (You choose).
Language: English or (You choose).
Than click search. You'll end up here.

Notice the drivers listed towards the bottom of the site. Including, WinXP ethernet driver version 4.16 (WHQL) nic driver. (Most if not all the Nvidia drivers are updated drivers).
Suggest you follow the instructions on the site before installing the 35.6Mb package.
I'm sure this will work for you. I have more faith in nvidia than ASRock. (This is what one would do when looking to update their nvidia chipset drivers).

Good luck bodfer!
Need more info, just post.

    Hi bodfer, I have to agree with your thinking because your correct.

    After you uninstall service pack 3 & reboot try this. Update windows by using the custom button & not express up until the only update that is left is SP3. Why?

    Microsoft .Net framework. They need to be installed in order & there are plenty. This may help with slow USB transfer. On the other hand I have found that when software has "not" been installed in the correct order windows just does not seem to function as well as it should. One would think MS would include instruction: (What order to install updates)?

    (Have you considered doing a fresh install of windows now that you know what order to install software)?

    Happy holidays bodfer!

    Thank You

I need a p5gc mx x-series motherbord cd

These drivers can be found at the ASUS website:
Select Product : Motherboard
Select Series: Socket775
Select Model: P5GC-MX/1333

Then just select your operating system. If the machine doesn't have internet because you need the network driver, put the driver on a flash drive to get the net card running first.

I am a Nvidia man myself but have had this same problem with other peoples systems. Make sure you have the correct version of Microsoft .net Framework installed on your system before installing the video driver. Check ATI driver download page for .net Framework requirements for this paticular driver package.
