  • My video card is also the SIS as well! I am using the proper configuration of Windows, but many add-ons WIN8 are not activated! SIS crap!

  • Hi,

    This is a driver issue, you may try to request a updated version driver form SIS.

  • The SIS 672 is a bit old. Try the Vista WDDM 1.0 drivers, they should still work in Windows 8.

    This "SIS 672" is the same "SIS Mirage 3"? I installed the drivers for Vista and 7 that were on the CD from my computer, but the same problem occurred.

  • yes 672 = Mirage 3. Do you have a yellow icon in device manager? Which code does it show?

  • Dude, look at the image:

    hehehe I'm brazilian. The Windows 8 is pt_br. :D

    In "Adaptadores de Vídeo" (Display adapters) what Microsoft uses when it has installed the brand itself. This is where it should be spelled "SIS Mirage 3." There is no yellow rectangle, as can be noted. But without that damn SIS, I can not put the computer to sleep. = @

  • right click on "Basic adapter" and update the driver. Point to the path where you extracted the SiS drivers.

    Man, I've done it and installed some versions of the drivers of SIS, but the same problem occurs!

  • Run the Problem Step Recoder (psr.exe) to show the steps you've done to install the driver. Save the rport and attach it here.

    The picture shows me that no dirver was installed. Make sure you select the path yourself, don't let Windows serach for the drivers!

    I had installed before, but as always gave error and I had to reinstall Windows or restore, I did not install any drive in my Windows 8 's SIS here. If I install, will give problem that I know and I don't want to lose my files and go through all this again.

    Ah, the blue screen of death! She appeared in the last 2 times I tried to install the drive!

    Only after some effort I understand that BSOD was the blue screen of death! (Here is TADM)

  • There isn't this folder: C:\Windows\Minidump

  • The folder is hidden by default. Configure Windows to show hidden and system files.

  • I have the same problem and reverted back to Windows 7, where this driver is working properly. Under Windows 8, the screen is constantly turning black and the laptop runs very slow and is unstable. Default Windows 8 drivers do not support the proper resolution.

  • the SiS is very old and not very good. Buy a new low-end card from AMD or nVIDIA and everything is fine

  • I sent a message to contact the SiS website so they are making a new driver compatible with Windows 8. I also ask that everyone did, because there would force them to develop such new driver for anyone suffering with this incompatibility, like me.
    Let's hope they answer our prayers.

    Did you ever receive any feedback from SiS regarding this windows 8 driver issue?

    Ah, that would truly be a nice thing to now. I at least have found nothing new so far :(
