ASUS PTGD1-LA Socket 775 ATX Motherboard
Microsoft Windows XP Home/Media Center/Professional
Driver Date & Version
2006-05-10 (ver. 3.28)
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 asus.com. In fact there was a forum member asking for the whereabouts of the driver in vip.asus.com 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:
- Resolves boot issue when HP Photosmart 8250 printer is connected.
- Resolves intermittent issue with resuming from suspend mode.
- Updates processor microcode to support newer Intel CPUs.
