    I need audio- and internet drivers for the Intel i865p/PE/g/i848p Chipset (Motherboard is ASUSTeK P4P800-VM). Reason being I can't get either of them to work...

    Intel Download Center was no help. I tried multiple drivers for both 865 and 848 chipsets, and they were all a waste of time. I also tried Driver Downloading from ASUSTeK, to no use...

    And yes, it's an old chipset, I know.

    If you know where to find these drivers, please provide useful links and/or direct links to these drivers.

    What's the INF utility good for? It installs a bunch of files in a location I have no frickin idea where it is, and then what?

    Then set your computer to update the drivers for the chipset.
    AFAIK it puts the driver files where windows can find it itself.

    Doesn't that require an internet connection...?

    No, the installer puts the files inside the directory, so windows can find them offline.
    Windows have a hidden folder with generic/universal drivers, the installer puts the files there.
    All you have to-do after executing the installer, is to trigger a driver update of your chipset using device manager.
    then windows should automatically use the intel drivers instead.

    Okay, I tried it. No difference. Still no sound or internet.

    I give up. I'm switching to Linux on that PC. I'll get my laptop back from repair sooner or later anyways.

    Uh, you'll need a driver to the ethernet chipset then.
    The sound chipset is made by ICS if i guess right.

    Edited:

    nvm, it seems like it's all integrated into the Intel chipset.
