How To Find Motherboard Drivers


How To Find Motherboard Drivers:

Here is a real world example on Fixya.com of some one having a problem getting drivers:

Question:
I need drivers for my FC GIGABYTE 8vm533m-rz motherboad

That is a some what a perfect question, the brand has been given and the motherboard modal number has also been given, so finding the drivers will be a peace of cake !

First of all, always go to the makers brand website, in this case we would go to Gigabyte's official website located here

Next, go to support & downloads;
Then copy and paste the motherboard modal number ( in this case is 8vm533m-rz )
From there we can get the drivers, located : HERE
locate the bios update: HERE
and that crucial mobo manual we all seem to lose: HERE

And that's the very basics, the same method would be used for every motherboard. Mostly all manufactures are happy to provide the drivers and support software on there websites.

Hope this helps some one out there.

Arcade History Dip Switches

While at the Press Start screen for any of the Arcade History games, hold the select button and you will be given a list of dip switches. You can use these for such things as changing number of rounds or unlocking hidden characters, such as Baek in Tekken 2.

Choose Victory Animation

How do I reset the ink levels?


Well, theres the problem. Most printers can remember up to three cartridges. That includes color & black. The best way to put it is that each cartridge has a"funger print" that the printer can read, and estimated ink levels can be gaged. There is a way to "reset" the cartridges, but i do not have the document on me. Please email steve@nicesites.org and I'll send it today. I'm not saying it will work 100%, as the reset method is geared for the 56/57/58, but who knows right?
