Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.

The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.

If it's a Dell computer...
Go here for how to find the Service tag "number":

Tell us what it is.

If it's a HP or Compaq computer.....
Go here:
Scroll down a bit.
Look for the similar label on the outside of your computer.
Quote the specific model number - that's at the end of the first line.
Quote the Product number - that's on the third line.

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

The newest video drivers and associated software for XP for SiS650 video were made in 2004. If you have already loaded those drivers, there are NONE on the SiS web site that are newer.

If you have re-loaded Windows XP from scratch you will need MORE than just the SiS650 video drivers.

XP doesn't have the drivers built in for most things that first came out after XP was first released, circa 2001, and it doesn't have some of the drivers built in for things made before that.

Whenever you load Windows from a regular Windows CD (or DVD) from scratch, after Setup is finished you must load the drivers for the mboard, particularly the main chipset drivers, in order for Windows to have the proper drivers for and information about your mboard hardware, including it's AGP or PCI-E, ACPI, USB 2.0 if it has it, and hard drive controller support. If you have a generic system and have the CD that came with the mboard, all the necessary drivers are on it. If you load drivers from the web, brand name system builders and mboard makers often DO NOT have the main chipset drivers listed in the downloads for your model - in that case you must go to the maker of the main chipset's web site, get the drivers, and load them.

If you provide the model of your brand name system, or the model of your mboard if it's a generic system, we can tell you which other SiS and other drivers you need.

Your computer will NOT be able to run it's mboard and drives as fast as it is able to until the SiS main chipset drivers have been loaded in Windows.


Go here

READ the red text !

You SHOULD be getting the drivers from the brand name system's web site, or from the mboard manufacturer's web site, in the downloads for your specific model.

Signify that you Agree - click on the box to insert a checkmark

Click on I Agree

Operating system
IGP Graphics Drivers
SiS650 & SiS740 series
Go (bottom right)

Download it.

Un-install any existing SiS650 video or similar entry that is listed in Control Panel - Classic view - Add or Remove Programs.

Restart the computer at least once.

DO NOT install drivers for the SiS650 video when Found New Hardware pops up !
CANCEL that, and let the desktop screen fully load.

NOTE that sometimes the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs - a part that runs all the time scanning for suspicious activity - will interfere with the proper installation of third party software, the software will not install properly, and you may get no indication of that at all while installing the software.
To avoid that possibilty, you should always DISABLE the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs, BEFORE you install third party software (software other than most Microsoft Updates, etc., that did not come with Windows ), especially when it's a major or complicated software package.
E.g. if you are using the free or paid version of AVG, you should disable the Resident Shield in AVG's 's settings in Windows.

If you don't know how to do that, tell us which anti-malware software you are using.
When you are sure the software has installed correctly, re-enable the resident module(s).

Then run the download that you got from the SiS web site.
Note that you may need to extract the file or files from the download before you can run the Setup file in the extracted contents, or before you can run the single *.exe file, that are / is revealed when you extract the contents.
