I just did a fresh/new install of XP Home on my dv9500t laptop (getting rid of Vista) and followed a guide from on-line, and got all the drivers from the guide (which all seemed to be correct). My laptop seems to be working fine (so far), but I notice that I have Iaanotif.exe listed in msconfig/startup. I don't understand how/why I have this. Apparently it is for the Intel® Application Accelerator:
http://www.intel.com/support/chipset.....;/CS-020801.htm

However, I have a Mobile Intel® PM965 Express Chipset.

And if you look at this link:
http://www.intel.com/support/chipset.....;/cs-009293.htm

...my chipset isn't even listed for this.

So how/why would I have it?

Is it bad that I do?

Thanks!

Thanks for the link. I'm still not sure how I ended up with it... but I guess it sounds like it can be used with my chipset.

The bigger questions is -- I don't even understand what it is/does! :thumbsup:

Is this something I'd be better off turning off somehow? Please let me know...

Thanks!

I have usually seen it recently installed with the motherboard chipset inf/driver for intel, some have different versions,
old versions got corrupt and played heck with cd/dvd burning

It's been well over a year since I have seen that problem, if it ain't broke, don't fix it

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I haven't got to the point of trying to see I can burn a dvd (no software installed for that yet).

How do I check to see what version I have?

Something else I just noticed... In my Event Viewer, it has IAANTmon listed with this:

...is this normal or have anything to do with it? I don't really understand this hard drive stuff, but I'm pretty sure my dual-hard drive isn't RAID (because when I was installing the SATA drivers originally, I accidentally chose the RAID option, and it didn't work, then I figured out what the right one was to use). So if it's not RAID, then why does it say all that about RAID?

Thanks!

Cool. Thanks.

So why exactly to I have a raid controller chip? Is that just the way it is? What is that for?

Sorry for the dumb questions... :thumbsup:

That info looks like it came out of Device Manager, not Event Viewer :thumbsup:.

A web search reveals: http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/iaanotif.exe.html and
http://www.file.net/process/iaanotif.exe.html

Which would explain it being in your Startup, although it's probably nonessential.

The RAID controller chip is just part of that particular motherboard. Makes it easier for users who want to implement a RAID. It's additional functionality in the motherboard, possibly forestalling the necessity of purchasing a RAID controller by those who might want to employ a RAID.

I thought I had repsonded back to this, sorry! Thanks for the post. I did do a search already for it on the web and saw that info. Sounds like it's okay as-is. Thanks.
