Problems with internet browsers on D865Perl mobo?


This mobo is a D865 Perl. I did a fresh install on this generic pc which was made at a computer show, Vista Home Premium installed fine but when I try to run windows update it shows "windows could not search for new updates", that's the first problem. I then tried to update from IE7 to IE8 but it doesn't work. I also can't install either FF or Chrome, then Adobe flash player won't install to watch youtube videos but I can go on any website with the IE7. I am now trying to reload Vista but don't see any option this time to get into the BIOS to change the boot order as before?

I reinstalled Vista again this time using Home Basic and on another HDD but exact same browser and internet problems. In the Device Manager, looking at Network Adapters there is only :Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection for which there isn't a yellow exclamation mark, only 2 entries under Other Devices are showing the yellow exclamation marks and those are PCI Simple Communications Controller and Unknown Device?Anything I can try here to solve this problem please?


Hi mikehende,

I am sorry you are having problems with your system but let me help you.

Based on the motherboard specifications I am afraid that the latest Operating System it can support is Windows XP and this may be the reason why you are having problems with the some components due to lack of drivers for Vista, Win 7, Win 8/8.1.

You can check the Operating System compatibility information at the following link:
