Full Driver Downloads for this motherboard Click Here!
After a fresh install of windows xp onto a computer fitted with the ASRock AM2NF6G-VSTA motherboard quite a few of the drivers will be missing.
The main problem is that windows xp installation cd even with xp service pack 3 ( SP3 ) will not pickup the network drivers which makes installing further missing drivers a problem.
The good news is that most of the drivers can be installed with just one driver installation package. You need to obtain the motherboard chipset driver package.
This motherboard has the nforce 405/6100 chipset from NVidia. You will need access to a computer that is already connected to the internet in order to download the nvidia chipset driver and once downloaded transfer it onto your AM2NF6G-VSTA computer.
You could download the chipset driver from the manufacturers website, asrock am2nf6g-vsta drivers but the drivers direct from nvidia are likely to be newer. As this is quite an old product the drivers for this chipset are in nvidia beta/archived driver legacy section. The latest one at the time of writing this article was nforce405 chipset driver v15.26.
Download the chipset driver and you will find all but one of the drivers are installed. The installed drivers are SMBus, Network/Ethernet Drivers, Graphics Driver 6100, SATA/IDE drivers. Once installed and a reboot later all that is needed is the audio driver.
The audio device fitted to the AM2NF6G-VSTA is the RealTek HD Audio. The latest version at the time of writing was Realtek Audio V1.43. However you can hook up the computer to the internet now that the ethernet drivers are installed and download the driver direct to the target machine. Run the setup file contained with the zip file and once finished make sure your speakers are plugged into the green 3.5mm audio connector and that is all the drivers installed.
Run windows update for good measure to ensure you are protected when on the internet by having all the latest security patches and updates installed.
This motherboard is a fairly capable spec even by todays standards. It will accept DDR2 800MHz PC26400 ram and with an Athlon64 x2 and PCI-e graphics card combination even be able to play some cool games.
