Update Windows Chipset Drivers

Every few weeks I examine what I can do to optimize my Windows user experience by tuning my system and searching for recommended tips. At the Optimize XP website it is recommended that you update the chipset drivers meant to work with the Windows operating system. In my laptop I have an Intel 865 family chipset and there has been an update as recently as last October, well after my laptop was purchased.

After updating the Intel chipset drivers I noticed a significant improvement in perceived performance! It is remarkable how a simple reminder to keep a Windows system updated even at the chipset driver level goes a long way toward maintaining performance.
