It is recommended that you use the latest version of the VIA Hyperion Pro drivers. It is recommended that you back up all essential data on your system before installing any major driver, software or utility from any software or hardware vendor. If you use WinXP, make a restore point just before you install any type of software, as a matter of normal procedure. This advice applies to installing any new hardware to a system as well. This is not a warning. This is recommended advice to any PC user.
