sorry but your replies are very unclear, using phrases like "may not" or "always, always want", and "necessary"..

there's Intel 3/4/5 Chipset Drivers and Intel Chipset Drivers for Windows 7, I'm assuming to use the latter? Don't even know what Intel3/4/5 means >.<

ok I downloaded that but on the readme it says

1. The system must contain one of the following Intel Chipsets:
Auburndale Chipset Family
Arrandale Chipset Family
Havendale Chipset Family
Clarkdale Chipset Family

Mine isn't one of those, so what now?
