ASUS PTGD1-LA is basically an mATX motherboard with integrated video, 8-channel audio, SATA connectors, and supports up to 4 GB DDR RAM. The PTGD1-LA also offers a PCI express slot, three (3) PCI slot, supports 4GB DDR266/333/400. Oh, and build in support for Realtek RTL8101L LAN and 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet controller too.

So where is the driver? Well, put it this way, there is no sign of the driver on In fact there was a forum member asking for the whereabouts of the driver in forum (VIP!) and after 1 week of no answer, all he get was an answer from the forum webmaster:

Curently, there is no ASUS personnel on this Forum to answer your topic

Further checking from Google I found that ASUS PTGD1-LA motherboard might be a custom made board for HP and Compaq by ASUS, as they bear the same model number PTGD1-LA (Puffer) and almost same specifications. So now we know

ASUS PTGD-LA = HP/Compaq name: Puffer-UL8E

So now there is hope for the BIOS/driver. If your ASUS PTGD-LA is not in HP/Compaq machine, no luck for you. The nearest BIOS that I found on HP website for is for PTGD-LA/PTGD1-LA/PTGD2-LA motherboard meant for HP Media Center m1080n Desktop PC. I would say it is a long shoot but you can try it anyway.

The BIOS patch offers the following fixes:

  1. Resolves boot issue when HP Photosmart 8250 printer is connected.
  2. Resolves intermittent issue with resuming from suspend mode.
  3. Updates processor microcode to support newer Intel CPUs.

    Can the Asus PTGD1-LA use older Pentium D dual core processors? Thanks in advance!

  • admin November 10, 2008 2:20 pm #

    From the specs I found it supports Intel P4 LGA-775 CPU. Intel says that Pentium D dual core is using LGA 775.

    So my guess is as long as the processor is a Intel P4 LGA-775 CPU and your BIOS supports it, you can put it in.

    That’s also what I discovered, however I can find no evidence that there is a BIOS version that supports dual core processors. :(

    Hi Jimbo,

    From HP website I found this info:

    # Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 3.4 GHz
    # Supports Intel Pentium 4 HT processors

    No mention of dual core processors support though.

    So in this case, it is better you fire an email to Asus or HP to find out whether the latest BIOS for PTGD1-LA supports dual core or not.

    Do tell us the outcome if you got any. Thanks…

    Follow-up as requested: I was on live chat with HP tech support for about 45 minutes, the conclusion of which is that latest BIOS for the ASUS PTGD1-LA does not support the older LGA 775 Pentium D , (dual-core), processors. Rats. :(

    Your MB uses INTEL 82915 G/GV/GL graphic chipset, yo can download driver from INTEL, just look for 82910GL files.
    I tried and they work fine!
    Good luck.

    What is the most powerful processor this motherboard supports? Does it support dual or quad core processors at all?

  • admin July 27, 2010 1:10 am #

    Regar: According to HP, it supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 3.4 GHz

    My computer processor is 3.6Ghz (Compaq) What is the maximum support ?

  • Nenad February 10, 2011 7:45 pm #

    I remember having HP a775 with this board in it. I upgraded the stock P4 550 3.4 that it came with to a P4 570j 3.8 I believe that is the highest you can do with that board. Even the 65nm refreshes of those processors dont work, I know because I tried the P4 661 and it didnt boot. So 570 is the highest you can go, Im sure of that, unless someone hacked the bios.
