Gooday all at BC. I have been messing around with a crash and burn box that I have. I formatted the drive, installed XP with a legit Disk I bought and updated through Windows update site.Speccy below shows the outfit specs. Problem is that I can't get the mo-bo drivers. I have tried going to the Gigabyte site and entering pertinent details but still no go. Would one of you kind souls point me in the right direction. Thank you in advance. James.

Thank you Mr Ornithorhyncus. I tried everything I could to get to that result. Your link took me straight there and all is now good on the C&B box. I must have been so close. For future reference could you show me the file path you took to get there. Thank you again. James.
Issue Resolved.

Yes indeed, first link on pasting the model into a Google search. :)

Even though the model is ga-8i845 rather than 81845, Google finds it. If you were searching for ga-81845gv on Gigabyte support, that could have made it difficult to get results there.

Glad to get you a good result.
