The chipset drivers for XP are here:
http://drivers.viaarena.com/P4M800CE_16944451_XP_wIShld_logod.zip

This should then fix your graphics

You may need to provide the PCI Hardware ID to get the audio driver - although it's a VIA integrated chipset there's not much to go on in the Everest report.

Here is how to find your hardware ID for the audio driver:

The application linked to from the article makes things easy, and the database is very extensive.

Removed the Case Side Panel and found out the MB is a P4M800PRO-M V1.0A, searching at the ESC website
I think I found the model is P4M800PRO-M (V1.0A)

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite_2007/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=574&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=52&LanID=0

P4M800PRO-M (V1.0A) drivers are older than P4M800PRO-M478 (V1.0)
Some drivers are for XP and some for Vista

The computer is a Genuine Intel Pentium Dual-Core,
Can you please explain me, why I have to download a chipset by viaarena
(P4M800CE_16944451_XP_wIShld_logod)
and not an Intel chipset?

If I download the latest drivers for P4M800PRO-M478 (V1.0) will them work for the PC under Win XP or Vista?

I linked to the correct drivers. Your motherboard has a Via P4M800 chipset and that's why you need Via drivers. Although Via no longer makes chipsets for Intel and AMD CPUs, they did at one time and were extensively used, primarily on AMD motherboards.

@willcomp:
well here I go I wiil format the HD and install the drivers for the link you provide me

Then chipset P4M800CE_16944451_XP_wIShld_logod.zip is useless for this PC, is it correct?

Use the drivers from the ECS web site that I linked to. Drivers from ViaArena that MASQUERAID linked to are also correct but you'll need the additional drivers from the ECS web site.

willcomp is absolutely right

>>Can you please explain me, why I have to download a chipset by viaarena
Don't forget it's your processor that is the Intel Dual-Core and the motherboard is designed to support that, it contains many other manufacturers' chips on it and in this case they are built by VIA.

The VIA packages are designed as a single file useable by any Windows operating system from 98SE to Vista

willcomp could also be bothered to read the entire log from Everest which clearly identifies your board rather than MASQUERAID who quickly scanned the first couple of lines and grabbed the nearest driver packages to hand.  :)

My secret has been outed :-)

As I recall, motherboards based on Via P4M800 chipsets were used mostly toward end of life for Intel P4 socket 478 CPUs and quite extensively as replacement motherboards since they support a wide range of socket 478 CPUs -- much more than any of the Intel chipsets.
