NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Network Driver v67.8.9.0 - Date: 08/01/2008
System overview:

Motherboard: ASUS M3N78-VM
GeForce 8200 gra[hic chipset is a "built-on"
nForce network chipset is also a "built-on" (nForce built-in Gigabit MAC with external Realtek 8211CL-GR PHY)
RAM: 3.5 GB
O/S: Win XP SP3
Monitors: HP S2031 / Acer S201HL


I just recently added my Belkin "G" wireless router back to my desktop so I could use my laptop throughout my house.

However, for whatever reason, my Win XP SP3 system keeps locking up over the hours when I am not around to use the desktop. Thus, I have to power off my desktop and power back on.

I am wondering if the nForce driver needs to be updated or if there is some other issue.

Does anyone know where I can find the new driver?

Does it come bundled with the GeForce 8200 graphic driver updates?


Thanks for any / all information you can provide!

If you go to nvidia's driver page, there should be a spot to download motherboard nforce drivers as well. The network driver should be bundled with them.

I'd imagine it is an issue with your power management, and your hardware perhaps not tolerating it.

Hmmmm... this time the website seemed to work and take me to a correct page with the driver bundle via the following link:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.45.html

does this look like the correct one that I need?

That appears to be the correct driver, only because I verified it on Asus's website for your motherboard model.
Verifying what drivers are recommended by the motherboard manufacturer is more recommended in my opinion.
Here is the link.

If the unit was working fine without issue prior to the install of the Wirelss 'G' item, you might want to consider an issue with the PSU or the power management scheme....see if it is disabling items when not in use, if so, have it leave them powered on.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.
