    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I will have to look and see. I never used the cd that came with the board. I just used the latest drivers from Nvidia.

    I have a file with the entire Abit site ,(20gb or so) not sure if there is something there that might be of use for you. Let me know if you want me to check the files for the NF7.

    Any apps that were supplied for the NF7-S motherboard, and more general apps for the NF2 chipset will be great, thanks.

    EDIT:

    Just flipped the page and saw the link. I will download the site, thanks.

    2nd Edit

    My ISP (Virgin Media) block all access to piratebay, so my original request stands. Thanks again

    I would also pay costs if someone can send me the entire site on a Bluray disc. Don't have a BD drive yet, but need to get a BD writer to backup all the movie torrents on my PC :)

    Yeah, Virgin Media and their "antipiracy"...
    Try it, when I was in UK I used it on BT internet :)
    https://www.softether.org/5-download

    I can even play games with IP block, for example - PSO2 and IP ban outside Japan. VPN is amazing :D

    BTW. Today I switched AM2 machine to desktop mode. I will proably need second PC in a college, so there it is...

    I want to buy 2GB DDR2 ram and Athlon 64 X2, it will be proably enough for everything :p

    One of these days I might rebuild my old system for the sake of nostalgia! I must find a case and some air coolers tho, since the original build was fully water cooled.

    P4 3.2E SL7E5 @4ghz (250 fsb with 5:4 memory divider iirc)
    Abit IC7-MAX3
    PowerColor X850XT PE
    4x512MB Patriot xblk (cl2)

    Networking software confuses me. I looked at that app and don't really understand what the specs or docs are saying, and can't find anywhere in the docs to tell me how to use it to bypass virgin's antipiracy.

    Can you explain in simple terms what I need to install (client? server?) and how i use it to connect to websites and torrents? Of course, if someone can make it available on a regular sharing site, as it's not copyrighted material, that would be better :)

    Still can't figure it out. I tried setting up for servers from your screenshot and can't connect. Where networks are concerned I will always need plug n play

    EDIT:

    Got it figured - I found how to dl softether with vpngate plugin, that is as easy as I need. I'm now downloading the abit file. Thanks to all :)

    May need you to keep it running longer than one night. The download is so slow I'm getting around 1% per hour, so may take 4-5 days :(

    I guess now I got the download started I can disconnect the vpn - it is slower than my regular connection. Very useful tool though :)

    Just tried some more BIOSes for my P4P800-VM BIOS and found a weird thing : even BIOSes for LGA 775 boards (ECS 865-M7 and AOpen i865PE-7ILFR are my faves)work on this motherboard.

    Currently I have trouble finding a way to have the 865-M7 BIOS assign a IRQ to my Intel onboard NIC since the ECS board uses RTL8100/8139.

    The AOpen BIOS works fine with the NIC but the downside is that I can't boot from pendrive (the ECS BIOS can).

    I've seen newish GPUs posted, and nobody was bothered by them. One man's junk is another man's nostalgia :) E8400 launched on Jan 8 2008 and last shipped on Feb 10 2012 (dates checked on cpu-world.com)

    Besides, there is no thread rule to say pics have to be 10 years old or anything :)
