TYAN S1590S Trinity 100 AT

This page is for people who own the Tyan 1590 Super Socket 7 Motherboard. I saw a need for a "Solutions Page" because technology is growing so fast it is outstripping our ability to accomadate. In order for the Tyan 1590 to operate at it's best all systems must work together. The Motherboard, the Via chipset, and Microsoft software must all work together in a seamless fashion. The problem arises that Win95a was made before the new technologies even existed! And, the peripheral device market has grown by leaps and bounds and has a hard time keeping up with new standards. It is no wonder that we must continually add bios updates, software pacthes, and other "fixes" to our systems to keep it all running smoothly. Thats whats this page is about! It is a place to keep up-to-date about the new fixes and how to implement them.

Please Note: The Tyan 1590 does not have any more problems than any of the other Socket 7 Motherboards! I have heard battle stories from all factions. Tyan owners are just solution oriented and thus create newsgroups and webpages to help solve their problems ;-)
