    Chipset cannot be identified?

    Hi all, I am having some serious weirdness on one of my systems. It is an 875P chipset (Intel Pentium 4 processor). I have been having issues with USB and configuring the drives (USB controller chips are just dead in my opinion, won't ever work). I decided that re-installing the chipset software might help.

    Upon installing the driver updates for my chipset, I also ran the Intel chipset identification utility. Unfortunately, it (the intel chipset identification utility) always says that my chipset type cannot be identified. Is it possible that I'm incorrectly installing the chipset drivers? I tried installing this before and after a format and re-install of the OS (XP home). This same utility works on the other systems in my house.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    Are you sure your board has a 875p? Maybe your BIOS doesn't support some routines to identify your chipset. I think it is not because of driver.

    I re-checked the manual that came with the system, and it says it is an 875p chipset. What you say doesn't make sense to me, because it's Intel software running to identify an intel chipset (meaning, even if it wasn't an 875p, the utility should tell me what the chipset is).

    What other ways could I check to determine the type of chipset?

    Have you tried out one of those hardware information systems, like this one for instance, seems to work for me every time:
