Question

Posted

Hello,

Today revising my device manager Ive found a "Base System Device" missing a driver. Looked it up in http://www.pcidatabase.com/ at it says its a 8 Lane, 8 Port PCI Express Switch from PLX Technology Inc. Not sure if its a chipset thing or not but...

Screen:

Where should I get, should it be the chipset, the drivers from, Asus or Intel?

Thank you

I think that's the culprit. The other stuff I've found via searching in the past few days regarding this issue has appeared to be related to Rockraid 640s e.g.:

Initially, I assumed you didn't have a RAID card on the system and that it must be something else.

 

EDIT: fixed links.

Intel (because the driver will be more up-to-date).

Hello,
Arent ROG boards newer than this P5B?

Yes, but they are ASUS boards and are seeing the same or similar issues. I don't think the identifier is correct for what this is. I looked it up and it appears to be embedded IC -- and the P5B manual, etc. does not indicate that it has that IC or anything near it as far as I can tell.

This will fix it. The device is not an Intel Device.

Nope, this wasnt it. Tried installing and it showed that it couldnt load the drivers for this device.

Just to rule this out, you don't have any sort of additional raid card installed in the system right?

This happens for not listening to BudMan and getting cheap RAID controllers :laugh:

Just in case for the future, MEGA mirror:
