Will the Intel D945GNT motherboard run Windows 64 bit OS, and will I need to change the RAM. At present I have Two Transcend 512 MB DDR2 Mhz modules on it. Please advise. Thanks.

Trying to run W7 64 bit with only 1gb of ram will make the system really slow. I suggest you purchase 4gb of PC5300 (667mhz) of ram which will cost about £30. Your system will then fly compared to what it is doing now.

My Mother is Intel D945GNT with Intel D Processor. Ipurchased it in 2006. From that time till 2007 it works properly. After that there is hang problem comming, and during hang also the display became hazi...

The onboard video chip is dying. Since it's a part of the chipset, it might be also dying. If you're lucky all you need to do is to add a separate video card, disable the onboard video and your problem will go away.

    Audio Problem

    Intel Desktop Board D945GCNL HD Audio Controller 5605 Windows Vista(32/64)/XP(32/64)/2000
    Installs the Realtek audio driver version 5605 for Intel® Desktop Boards.

    IMPORTANT: Audio drivers may fail to install in Windows* XP 64-Bit Edition. Symptoms may include error messages, such as "Error in installation" or "Unknown error".

    Vista compatiable

    intel doesnt list any vista drivers for that motherboard on there site so you might run into problems with the intergraded devices such as the ethernet,audio,chipset, & any intergraded video

    You might be able to use the xp drivers but if theres problems it wouldnt be supported by intel

    Audio device is not working

    I have been working on this for months and finally got everything including front audio panel going. First Download the latest realtek audio drivers available  from intel's website or go here and download #3 Next goto control panel and add/remove programs then look for realtek audio drivers that have been previously installed. Remove program if one is found. Then go to device manager (right click my computer, go to properties, Then hardware, then device manager. Click on the"+" in front of system devices. Find "microsoft uaa bus driver for high defintion audio". Right click that and select, "disable". Then right click it again and "unintstall" the device. This will allow you to install the audio drivers on your disc, or ones you have downloaded to install without an error message. Once done install your audio drivers and restart your PC and windows should start dectecting your new hardware. An installation wizzard pops up. Install the files needed yourself from a specific location, not a disk. It will ask for location of file name "hdaudbus.sys". That file is in C:/Windows/System32 folder. If it's not there, which it should be, just find and download that one file but it should already be there. I have done all this on xp home ed, sp3. I now have sound, and my front audio panel works. Please let me know if you have any problems by emailing me at
