  • Fix: freezing computer in junglerflasher

    Removing VIA drivers (Windows XP) NOT TO BE DONE IF YOUR MAIN HARD DRIVE IS ON VIA SATA CARD This is how I done it, it worked fine, may not be 100% Right

    Right Click My Computer,select properties

    Click the “Hardware” tab

    Then, click “Device Manager”

    Navigate to “SCSI and RAID Controllers” and click the + sign to expand the list

    Right Click the VIA 6421 RAID Controller (may report as 3249 if using 550b drivers or above) and select Disable

    Acknowledge the warning by clicking Yes

    It should now show as disabled in Device Manager like so:

    Now, to remove drivers we must navigate to where viamraid.sys is

    Mine were located, and most will be: C :\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\viamraid.sys – once found, delete this file.

    Once deleted, go back to device manager using the same steps outlined above.

    Find your disabled VIA 6421 Card, right click and select enable

    It should now show as the image below

    If so, reboot your PC Upon reboot, verify VIA 6421 still has a Yellow Exclamation Mark in Device Manager

    You have successfully removed VIA drivers from your machine
