i have a couple of questions really, first and foremost, i am trying to update the driver for my processor (amd 64 3500+ 939 socket) i currently have 18.104.22.168. i have downloaded the EXE and it is telling me that i should uninstall the driver i am currently using before installing the new one (22.214.171.124). my question is this:
if i uninstall my driver will the computer 'die'?
secondly i have also got a problem with my RAM, i have an ABIT AN8 motherboard and DIMM slots 3 and 4 are not working, i have contacted ABIT and they say that there is something with the processor that meant the last 2 slots are unavailable for expansion. as i have the basic driver i was wondering if this problem has been sorted in subsequent releases or if it is still an onging problem.
my full spec is below before people ask for it
AMD 64 3500+ 939skt
ABIT AN8 (recomended amd mobo)
1gig RAM (currently 512, am looking into that too, (2*512 sticks)
2*40gig HDD (Seagate i think)
Nvidea GeForce 6600GT PCI-E
Some rubbishy DVD RW
i am currenlty in the process of upgrading to a Antec TruePower II 550W psu and 2*80 gig SATA HDDs
any help would be absolutly fantastic
