Hey guys, I built a pc for a friend of mine and it seems to be having some trouble. I came over here to figure out the problem but it's not very apparent to me what the problem is. I was hoping some of ya might be able to gimme a hand in figuring it out. Whenever he downloads any files, they're corrupted. Doesn't matter where you download from or what you download there is always corrupted files. I was thinking maybe it's the hard drive so I tried saving stuff to my usb key, but it's still corrupted. I dunno if that actually clears the hard drive of the blame though. Any of you guys got ne ideas? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"><br><br>
The Hardware is as follows:<br><br>
Asus A8N-SLI SE<br>
AMD 64 3200+<br>
512mb OCZ PC3200<br>
Nvidia Geforce 6500<br>
Western Digital WD800JD 80 gig SATA Hard drive.<br><br>
Running Windows XP SP2

its very strange that a lot of people don't know about this problem. I've suffered from it, and so have a few of my friends. Your problem is the NF4 chipset on that ASUS board. Short of moving over to NF5 you aren't going to erradicate it completely. But here are some steps you can take.<br />
<br />
1. Remove ALL the Nvidia drivers<br />
2. Reinstall the latest display drivers<br />
3. Reinstall the latest forceware drivers <b>WITHOUT</b> installing the Nvidia NAM and Firewall.<br />
<br />
This should stop the majority of your download corruption for smaller files (i.e. less than 2GB)<br />
<br />
If you are downloading larger files greater than 2GB, here are some extra tips that have been proven to help:<br />
<br />
1. Select the properties of your network adapter in device manager<br />
2. Go to the advanced tab and:<br />
i) Disable checksum offload<br />
ii) Set "optimise for" to throughput<br />
iii) Disable segmentation offload<br />
iv) Set Speed/Duplex settings to "autonegotiate for 100FD<br />
<br />
Apply these settings and restart. Note the settings for the network adapter you've changed where used to implement in HW protocols that XP does on a software level. Nvidia didn't get it fully right, but its been ironed out for NF5. They should of really called NF4, NF5 Beta <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> For the whys of all the above steps you can do a search yourself, i'm just giving you the solution.<br />
<br />
Word to the wise: Next time you are going to buy a mobo, make sure it has been out a while (thus has done the rounds) and do a search for "<mobo name> problems" to see what problems other people have been having with that particular board.<br />
<br />
Let me know if this solves the problem. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Try this also : <br />
<br />
CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE: : To ensure that Windows XP performs at its best all the time you can use the System file checker to locate any missing or damaged system files and replace them. Click on ''Start'' ''Run'' and type exactly WITHOUT quotation marks ''sfc /scannow'' and press ''Enter''.The windows file protection monitor will now scan your entire system for missing or damaged files.Keep your original Windows XP CD at hand as you may be asked for it to replace any missing or damaged files. Other commands that can be used for this step are: <br />
<br />
System File Checker Utility (Scan Immediately) sfc /scannow <br />
System File Checker Utility (Scan Once At Next Boot) sfc /scanonce <br />
System File Checker Utility (Scan On Every Boot) sfc /scanboot <br />
System File Checker Utility (Return to Default Setting) sfc /revert <br />
System File Checker Utility (Purge File Cache) sfc /purgecache <br />
System File Checker Utility (Set Cache Size to size x) sfc /cachesize=x

Thank you guys oh so very much. Rep +. My question is.. How could Nvidia release something like that and not call back the boards and offer new fixed one? Anyways, I reformated, and didn't install the nvidia nam and firewall (i didn't manage to see the last two posts before that). We'll see how long that lasts. If anything I'll try and get the money back for the mobo or something.

Is it the firewall that causes most of the problems? Geeze, I just lost some respect for nvidia.
