About these pages.

In response to all the emails and newsgroup postings I end up responding to regarding AGP conflicts, bus mastering IDE drivers and support for various Intel chipsets, I've decided to post all the information on GWeb. Most of the information on this page comes directly from Intel, specifically the excellent Troubleshooting Common System Configuration Issues document they've published. Check out the following links for each of the GWeb Intel pages.

Identifying Intel - how to identify your Intel chipset and/or processor.
INF Installation Utility - what it's for, addressing the AGP memory conflict, and downloads.
Pentium 4 - some specific software and information for Pentium 4 owners and upgrades.
Bus Master IDE Drivers - what they're for, removing the drivers under '95 and '98, and downloads.
Troubleshooting document - download.

Intel's Troubleshooting Document

This document is published by Intel, written by their own IA/PCI Support Engineers. It's well worth a read, and includes a lot of solutions to common problems that I've not mentioned in these pages. You'll need a copy of the Acrobat Reader to view the file.

The document is specifically targeted at the older Windows 95/98 INF Update Utility and the Bus Master IDE Driver for Windows 95. It is only relevant to the 430FX/VX/HX/TX and 440FX/LX/EX/BX/GX chipsets.
