|Ok, where do I find the information of what chipset my computer has? I have no clue when it comes to laptops, I'm a desktop type guy that can tear one apart and put it back together and set up a brand new OS with no issues.. but these tiny laptops screw with my eyes.|
Everything seems to be working on the computer, and under Device Manager, I'm not finding any yellow markers showing that theres an issue. I can list the drivers that are installed though..
Battery Drivers, for the battery adapter and such... the ACPI Multiprocessor PC, Toshiba MK1646GSX for the hardrive... ATI Radeon display adapter, Cd Drive... Human Interface Devices x2, a list of IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers for primary and secondaries... Bus host controllers, keyboards, mice, modems, monitors (I use an external monitor), network adapters including wireless which is working, drivers for the processors, host controllers, sound ect..
I also have drivers installed and working for the USB ports, root hubs, and the huge list of system devices..
I honestly don't THINK that there is an issue with drivers, unless its from a missing Bios driver? (not sure how laptops work on that aspect).
I have updated the Windows XP OS to Service Pack 3, with everything from microsoft, so it works great once its booted up.. it just takes forever to boot. Gets past the bios access screen, then gives a black screen with vertical white lines on the very bottom of the screen with a progress indicator where it takes 20+ mins to complete, then windows loads just fine and the computers good to go.
It's driving me nuts :(
