I bought this machine with Vista installed - out the window and install XP.
I have had no problems with the XP install apart from getting drivers for the SM Bus - downloaded directly from Intel
However I updated to SP3 and since then whenever I reboot the machine I have to re-install the PCI device driver.
Doesn,t matter how many times it is installed the driver will not "stick" and requires reinstallation next time.
Please - Please - Why and how can I get round this

I had been having this driver download problem for about three days before asking here.
"Ask the experts and all will be revealed"
I waited for the reply only 1 day BUT meanwhile, without doing anything except wait for a result I tried again - rebooting and expecting the same "driver install requirement."
Without doing a thing the problem went away and has't recurred.
Now - That is what I call SERVICE with a capital S
All I want now is to understand what went on???
