Request help in identifying which 850 chipset is in my Dell Dimension 8100

Jump to solution

This is the first time that I have used this system- pardon me if I make a mistake.

Intel lists 6 different 850 chipsets per the following.

http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/dsktpboards http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/dsktpboards

EXCERPT:

Intel® 850 Chipset Family Boards

However the following utilities do not identify any of the above 850 chipsets.

Intel Chipset Identification Utility V2.91

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=8264 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=8264

REPORT EXCERPT:

Detected Chipset: Intel(R) 850 chipset family

Memory Controller: 82850/82850E

I/O Controller: 82801BA (ICH2)

AIDA64 Utility

http://www.aida64.com/downloads http://www.aida64.com/downloads

REPORT EXCERPT:

CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4, 1400 MHz (14 X 100)

Motherboard Name: Dell Dimension 8100

Motherboard Chipset: Intel Tehama i850(E)

 

My Dell Dimension 8100 is not connected to the internet; therefore, I can't use Intel Driver Update Utility.

 

I have already installed the Dell Dimension 8100 BIOS XP2 (to support WinXP) and plan to install the

 

latest software for my Intel 82801BA Ultra ATA Storage Controller. My root problem is that WinXP install

 

(upgrade from WinME) fails- prior to install, setup complains that I may not have the required support for my

 

PCI Mass Storage Controller. Previously, my original hard file crashed and I replaced it with a 500GB hard drive,

 

with PCI EIDE storage controller. I only use this computer for email, so I did not see the need for buying

 

a new computer.

 

Thanks, Carl

Hello smithcarl,

We regret to inform you that the chipset for your Dell* system will not appear in our website based on the fact that it is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) version. The drivers and chipsets listed in our website are for Intel boxed motherboards exclusively. Thank you for your understanding.

Go to cpuid.com and download the CPU-Z utility. Download the zip file to avoid installation. Extract the contents of the zip file and run the exe.

You will get enough infos regarding your system and motherboard.
