HI again, Heres a followup, I still have not been able to get the latest version of IDU to run but, for the heck of it I tried a different version of the software.
I installed the version for 3 series desktop boards, version 3.0.16.082, and guess what ?, it works !, sort of.
The GUI will run, it displays all system info correctly but, it does not disply any of the temps or voltages.
This is not perfect but, at least it makes the effort !.
I also should mention that hardware monitor does work in the bios and I have tried other monitor programs and they do work.
so I am sure that my hardware is OK and that I have a software problem.
Does this give anyone a clue as to what may be wrong ???.
Intel Desktop Utilities is not supported on the DG41TX. It has no support for the sensors/fan controllers utilized on this board. It is not recommended that you attempt to use this software on boards that it is not intended to run on.
HI, So what Intel program will run on this board ????.
I have been in contact with Intel support, they have not said that I could not run IDU on this mobo !.
They must have something that will run on it, why elese all the sensors ??? !.
Did you read somewhere that it wont run on a DG41TX ???.
I am sorry to have to tell you that Intel does not provide a monitoring program for the DG41xx board family. There are a number of 3rd-party programs that can be used with these boards. As an Intel employee, I cannot endorse any particular programs, but here is a (certainly non-exhaustive) list of some that you could try out (and for which I could quickly find links):
AIDA64 (www.aida64.com) (this is the replacement for the older Everest application)
