You know in a system spec., when you want some help, stating it's a computer is not really helpful to you.

What do you want to know that I can answer, to help answer questions with the thread ? A computer, is a computer. I don't like exposing what I don't like to, the odd time I make this mistake.

The requested info may help, helping you. Nothing else. What can possibly be the reason to hide what components you PC are made of? Did Aliens build it in Area51 or some? DOD hardware?

Anyway
Installer is probably the version of the setup software that delivers the driver.
SMU is related to nvidia nForce graphics driver
WHQL is short for Windows Hardware Quality Labs which is a hardware certification by Microsoft.
DE, I do not know. Not whitout knowing more about your Motherboard.

After checking this a bit, all that list are the components of the driver installation for an Nvidia (nForce?) graphics card. Now it took me 15 minutes to find out something you could have told us immediately. Where do I send my bill?

Well, that's quite obvious....

Installer (v5.40) is installer version 5.40
SMU (v1.23) WHQL is SMU version 1.23 WHQL
DE Driver (v6.91) "WHQL" is Delaware Driver version 6.91

See what happens... if you won't help, you get answers, but they're not much help and in the case of my reply not very useful or accurate.

I know that you're only asking vocabulary questions, but some members asked you to provide additional information. You resisted. It's not as if they were asking for personal information - then I too would say "For what reason do you need that! You're not going to get anything from me."

It was very nice of Coram Daes to answer - I'm just trying to make a point.

I need the extracted chipset driver and it appears that the Installation CD (nForce 680i v9.53b) doesn't include it on the CD.

None of the ones listed are the chipset driver. Since you know the chipset, why are you looking on some old CD? Those are good for beverage coasters and that's it. Go to Nvidia and get the driver directly.

As for system specs, I may be a bit frustrated by this, but I never understand how someone owns a computer but doesn't know what's in it. How else would you ever decided if it was a good computer and worth what you paid for it? Filling out your system specs should take 1-2 minutes, if that, and it's revealing anything private. We can't steal your identity by knowing what motherboard you have.

We're here to help, but if you can't be bothered to put in some minor effort, how do you expect others to put any in to help?
