I have a processor AMD PHENOM II X4 820 PROCESSOR 2.8 GHZ and I am looking for the last driver for my sata controller to be able to run it in ACHI mode
AMD now uses Windows 10 Native MS SATA Controller. The last AMD SATA Controller was from, I believe, 2015.
You can also check your Motherboard's Support Driver download site to see if they have an updated Sata Controller in their Chip Sets.
AMD do not supply the mothersboard driver ? I have difficulty to reach my manufacturer GATEWAY. I dont know which company I could ask .Do you have any suggestion
Thank you for ansewring me
If you are using Windows 10, then it already has MS SATA CONTROLLER installed. You can check this out under Device Manager:
AMD does supply AMD Chip Sets. AMD Drivers and Support for Radeon, Radeon Pro, FirePro, APU, CPU, Ryzen, desktops, laptops
But you need to know what type of Motherboard you have installed and what Chip Set series in has.
You download a small free program called SPECCY that will show you most of your Make & Model of your computer hardware and software installed.
Once you know your Motherboard's Make & Model, you can google it to see if there are any Gateway Links. Also to find out the specs of your motherboard to see what Chip Set Series Drivers it needs.
EDIT: Found that Gateway still has a website with support. Input your Gateway computer information and it should show you all the drivers available to download from here: Drivers & Downloads
Thanks for the support,
I did run speecy to find my info about my pc (see pict 1) and after I make the google search with the motherboard info (sse pict 2) then I choose the windows driver that it seems to be the right choice.
Now I have to select the drivers, I dont what driver to choose
Found a Gateway Computer with your AMD Processor. Is this your computer? Gateway DX4320-39 - MT - Phenom II X4 820 2.8 GHz - 6 GB - 1 TB Specs - CNET
This is the model inputted at Gateway link from previous reply: Drivers & Downloads
According to CNET Spec on that particular Gateway Model, the Chip Set it uses is AMD 880g which you can download from AMD from here: 880G Drivers & Support | AMD
You have a very old computer that only has drivers for Windows 7 according to Gateway. It is possible you may have a difficult time finding Windows 10 drivers for your motherboard and hardware.
Seems like Acer acquired Gateway Computers from here: https://www.pcworld.com/article/136415/article.html
If so, I would open a Acer Support ticket with Acer Support and see what they recommend for driver downloads.
