I've been trying to download the following drivers:

VIA Serial ATA Controller - 3149

Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA ® Audio Controller


Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC

I've tried many many times to D/L the right drivers for these two items, but every time I attempt to install it turns out I have the wrong ones. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction?

I have been to both the VIA site & Realtek site (ad numerous other sites as well) & just don't seem to be able to find the right drivers.

Thanks a bunch.

What kind of computer do you have? Or what motherboard do you have?

The appropriate drivers should be available at the website of the manufacturer of your system. If it's a custom build, then those drivers will be available at the website of the motherboard manufacturer. If the sound and NIC are add-on cards, then the drivers for them will be available at the website of the company that manufactured them.

I recommend downloading drivers for video from the chipset manufacturer's website - but without supporting documentation doing the same thing for other hardware devices may cause issues with your system (depending on what the manufacturer has added on).
