Also there MAY be more up to date drivers for the moboard at Nvidia.
Under Option2 you can search for mobo drivers. It will install an Active X and search the data base.
Just an idea.

Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Anything that reduces the amount of groping that I do is not useless. Thanks.

Since that button is labeled graphic drivers, I doubt that it would help with nForce drivers. The last time that I checked, the only new drivers available were from third party sources, and whether they worked properly or not was hit and miss.

When you get to the page under graphics is Option 2 with a Motherboard Driver Button. It will take you and want to install Active X to find your hardware.
In fact just click the button below the link copied with button.

Hmm, I guess that you must have drug out your camera to get that shot...thanks.
O/T but no I didn't have to. Put a usb thumb drive in, and any page in BIOS just press F12 and it puts a picture of that page on the USB drive. Useful if you OC and then use the tuner within windows.

Here is what that got:

We're sorry, the NVIDIA Smart Scan does not support your system at this time.

Supported operating systems: Microsoft Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, 2003, Media Center, and Windows Vista.

Supported browsers: Internet Explorer.
EDIT: I tried it again in IE, and it did display a page to install ActiveX, so I guess that they don't like Opera. Still, I'm a bit reluctant since they don't list Windows 7 as being supported.

I think that UEFI BIOS can be shown in Windows. Could be wrong though.

That's sweet. Can't wait to get a board with that UEFI BIOS.

Anyway back on topic now.

What browser are you using? I just went there and the website wanted to install the add-on. I chose no since I don't own Nvidia anything.

Those hard drives may be going, especially if he can't read the SMART info and SMART is enabled in the BIOS.
