VIA Technologies Support

VIA Technologies provides technical support for their products through an online website:

Visit VIA Technologies

All of VIA's products, downloads, reading materials, and other resources are available through this main website.

VIA Technologies Driver Download

VIA Technologies provides an online source to download drivers for their hardware:

Download VIA Technologies drivers

Just choose your operating system from the dropdown menu, the type of driver you're looking for, and then the specific product that requires the driver.

Driver downloads for older VIATech products can be downloaded through the EOL Products page. You should check here for driver downloads if you can't find it on the main driver download website.

Another way to download drivers through VIA is to browse through the menus at the top of the page for the product in question, and then look for the link to the driver under the "Downloads" section.

All of VIA Technologies driver downloads are in ZIP files, which means you may need to extract the driver files out of the ZIP archive before installing them.

While it's always best to download drivers directly from a manufacturer's website (like VIATech), sometimes you just can't find what you're looking for. Fortunately, there are several other places to download drivers.

If you've downloaded a driver but you're not quite sure how to update/install it for your VIA Technologies hardware, see How To Update Drivers in Windows for easy driver update instructions.

VIA Technologies Product Manuals

Many of the user guides, instructions, and other manuals for VIA Technologies hardware are available on the VIATech main website:

After choosing this link from above, just browse for the particular piece of hardware that you need information on (use the menus at the top of the website). Then, just choose the "Downloads" tab and look for "User Manual" or something similar.

Note: Most manuals on the VIA Technologies website are available in PDF format. There are plenty of free PDF readers available if you don't already have one.
