Question about Insignia D400a PC Desktop
I have an Insignia D400a. Recently I did a system restore with the recovery DVD that came with the unit. After all the security updates including SP3 I started updating as many drivers as I could find. On the Intel site there was a BIOS update which I downloaded (express install). The update was successful, but now the device manager doesn't detect the USB's or my media card reader. Which means my printer or other USB peripherals do not work. The new BIOS version is VA84510A.86A.0056.P20. My question is: would reflashing the BIOS with the original version as shipped solve the problem I'm having? If there are any owners of a D400a out there who haven't updated the BIOS, could you please email me the original BIOS version. I many need that, even if I end up taking the unit to a computer tech. If you can, either post it here, or you can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm the guy who originally posted the BIOS problem. For some reason I never got my password under the "niceguy5255" handle so I had to do a whole new profile with this one. Anyhow, to leecom72: my D400a has the Intel 845G chipset. Will the driver you gave the link to be compatible? If so, can you explain how the driver will help? To anyone else out there who has a D400a and hasn't updated the BIOS since you got it, please post the BIOS version here, so I can see if I can find that version on Intel's site. Thanks for the responses...still searching for a solution :/
When XP came out I quickly learned that you can't upgrade motherboards without a complete re-install of XP. It only loads drivers for the chipsets it detects on install. I've read a few work arounds but they all involve manually installing the new motherboard drivers before upgrading. I'm not positive but I think this is what you'll find you did when you upgraded your bios. XP no longer see's it as the motherboard that it installed drivers for originally and it doesn't have the ability to go back in re-install motherboard drivers after the fact. I think if you formated your computer again and re-installed XP again your would be able to see your motherboard periferals again.
