Have a new Asus P5N7A-VM mobo with built-in GeForce 9300.

I have tried and tried to download the 400MB chipset driver file from here (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us), but it always stops at ~290MB. The only source that works for me is China.

I need my graphics driver and software. Any suggestions?

First suggestion, post this in the Drivers Section or the Motherboard (Hardware) of the Forums. ;)

I downloaded the file using the Global link and it shows the file size as 294.38MB. I then clicked on the China link and it shows the same file name as 396.45MB. I don't know. The Global link is fast or at least it was for me. The China link is slow as molasses in January. :)

Did you get the file from the China link? :confused:

Okay, I just tried to unzip the file that I downloaded from the Global link and it was corrupt. I'll check the file from the China link when it finishes, in about 30 minutes. LOL :)

Yes 396.45MB is the correct size. You experienced exactly the symptom I'm talking about: it never makes it even to 300MB. I suspect some RST sniping is going on.

But thankfully I did end up getting it, with the help of wget, which recovered from a shot at 296MB.

I have no idea what Asus stuck in that file to make it so big.

but just grab the updated version from nvidia.com

not sure what OS you have, but this is XP

I got it from the China link the very first time. Unzipped fine. Must have been something with your internet connection or ASUS' site.

Follow what nekro said, always get them from NVIDIA's site, as they will be newer drivers anyway. ;)
