Hi experts,

  On my Toshiba Satellite C580 i have installed W8.1 (not OEM). I tried to run Intel Chipset Utility and i got the bellow error. I have only one accound as "admin" yet the error said that the software be run under an admin acc. See the attachment.

Any idea why i got that error? how i can set my adim acc to be recon as admin?

Look for a chipset version that is built for Windows 8.1 or 8 for your mainboard.

Any other software to find out the chipset?

If the PC uses an intel chipset, then you are using the correct tool. SIW is a tool that can give you details on the hardware of a PC:
