Chipset drivers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had to do a repair install of Windows XP on one of my computers. Do I have to re-install the chipset drivers? Just the chipset drivers, or do I also have to re-install the video drivers after the chipset drivers. It appears that I have Microsoft drivers now for the IDE controller. Chipset drivers are VIA.

This is kind of new to me. Sorry for the dumb question.

Just a repair, I would say not. Its been a long long time since I did a repair but I 99% sure everything should be good to go. Now if you did a reinstall obviously you would have to.

It's a good idea to reinstall drivers after a repair just on the off chance the system runs into driver conflicts.
