Pretty much as the title says; I've been trying to identify which Intel chipset I have for my Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Quad Core Processor. I've tried each of the methods outlined here:
to no avail (Device Manager didn't show it, the utility wouldn't work, processor manual didn't specify it, couldn't determine what the "chip markings" meant). The following is a picture of what the Device Manager is showing:
The reason I've been trying to find out what chipset I've got is so I can update it's drivers and *hopefully* stabilize my constantly crashing machine. I'm going to be calling the manufacturer later today, but I thought I'd ask the folks on this forum if there was anything else I could try doing to identify my chipset and move on with installing up-to-date drivers.
Any helpful comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!
Do you know teh model of teh motherboard? or if teh system was pre built, does it have a model number?
Also you could try this http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-010687.htm
If it is an Intel motherboard it will tell us teh model.
From teh model we can figure out which chipset you have
