Teckram S381 chip-set driver

Hello First I must say I don't have much of a knowledge ( very near zero)when working with computers.

Since I retired I have been making experimental musical instruments, and later in the year one of them will be displayed in an exhibition along with a photo slide show.. for this show I have purchased a cheap PS along with windows 98SE the original program on the PC was XP but along with the driver this was removed ,after many hour web searching I have found a driver for the graphics.. but cant' find any other.. I hope someone can help I have been told the one I really need is the 'Chip-set driver' ColRay

    Re Ekse's question.

    It was because of the law / microsoft and the XP license, the previous owner had XP on the machine and the guy who run the shop said the license could not be transfered and removed it, because a new copy of XP was out of my price range 98 was the next best thing. Col

    windows XP should have these drivers 'chipset drivers' for your motherboard build in. These can not be taken into 98se from xp.

    If you need other drivers than those two on 98se. Then I can't help you.

    Xp should have all the drivers you need.

    I looked in the driverguide database with over 40,000 drivers.

    I only found a sound driver and a video driver for your S381M

    there is no driver available.

Just Google your motherboard model and include the search terms "chipset driver" (ex. Gigabyte M61SME2 chipset driver) and that should get you what you need.

Can an AMD K6 with 3D now be upgraded if so what motherboard would I need Also will I be able to use wifi


I don't really like answering these types of questions, because you have a much older computer. Based on the AMD-K6 3D, it maybe time to retire it. The fastest chip is 500MHz, and that is not nearly enough to handle today's media rich web content, software, or games. In fact many smart phones have more processing power.

An upgrade really would not justify the time and effort involved.

Best of luck whichever way you decide to go.

How can i restore my Drivers

Are they gone? Check Device Manager and install or update from there. Windows Update might help. Going directly to vendor site. eg. Motherboard, sound, Network card maker an so on... You may be able to load from disc. This might require some navigation from you, again in Device Manager.

After a while the computer start sending blue signal

You could check to see if the northbridge or southbridge chips are overheating, but it sounds like one or more capacitors are bad even though they don't look defective(bulging or leaking). You did a good job narrowing it down. Probably best to just retire that motherboard.

By mistake i removed all the intel software now i cant watch any video or pictures everything is blurry

what did you remove was it graphics or media related

Want to make sure your drivers are in place and no errors have occurred? Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small "+" you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it. If you don't see it everything is OK and your card is working properly.

If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question exclamation mark ? mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers

if you don't have a disk with the drivers you have to download them
click start control panel,display,desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system

also settings you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes
