On the problems with VIA Hyperion 4in1 v4.50 drivers. Company´s dictum
The hype over the information stating that the latest Hyperion 4in1 version 4.50 drivers from VIA Technologies published at VIA Arena official website caused problems in some configurations came to the final. If you don´t know what this all is about, the problems were noticed in systems equipped with ATI graphics cards, over 1GB RAM, and BIOS AGP aperture of over 32MB.
VIA confirmed this problem and posted its official statement at British
We would like to sincerely apologize for any problems that people have experienced with the Hyperion 4in1 4.50 drivers.
These drivers were removed from the download page on VIA Arena and from the VIA Arena ftp, once we started receiving reports of the drivers causing problems. These drivers were officially tested and certified by Microsoft and VIA to work correctly and efficiently with Windows Operating systems that have Microsoft certified drivers installed.
After detailed investigation of the issues that have been reported, we have found that they only occur with systems configured with 1GB or more of memory and an ATI graphics card where the AGP aperture has been set above 32MB.
We are currently working on a new revision of the driver that changes the default size of the AGP aperture to 32MB.
Once again, we would like to offer our deepest apologies for this issue.
All is well that ends well. Today at VIA Arena we saw the updated VIA Hyperion 4in1 v4.51 drivers (available for download here).
