Hello,

are You shure, the 3438 has a VIA-Chipset inside?

I think, it is an Intel 915 (PM/GM) chipset, with an Intel Pentium M

processor. So you need this driver:

Hi m8, have you managed to re-install win xp without the recorvery cd? if yes, how?
I am in big trouble here for 15 days now, I managed to re-install win98se but to upgradeto win xp the lappy (Amilo M 3438G) crashes everytime somewhere along the way (I use the original xp disk that came with the laptop, it won't do an upgrade because it's not available but then when I start the installation it goes ok to the point where the lappy need to restart and when it does, it crashes...)
Please HELPPPPPPPP
