This software supports the PCI-to-ISA Bridge developed by Cyrix Corp and Via Tech Inc., which creates software peripheral. The software's task is to aim the PCI on its target bus. PCI communications address to this point and send it to the ISA bus. If data transferring in ‚Äúread mode', the core will wait for all converted data from the ISA and sends it back to the PCI bus. If data transfers in ‚Äúwrite mode', the core will station the write data to the internal write buffer, stops the process of PCI bus and then writes back to the ISA. With a normal PCI bus running at the speed of 33 MHz, the core will operate the ISA bus at ¬º frequency of the PCI speed. The ISA bus will operates at 8.33 MHz of speed.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Standard Peripheral Component Interconnect or PCI is a machine bus made for installing hardware devices in the computer. Standard PCI can be installed either in the figure of built-in circuit inserted in the motherboard or a planar apparatus in the PCI ID and extension card that match accordingly in a slot. This device meets the standard of VESA Local Bus and ISA as the customary expansion bus. This is also featured in many computer types in the market. Regardless of the accessibility of faster interfaces like PCI-E and PCI-X, conventional PCI remains an ordinary interface in the market. This device is utilized for Ethernet buses and controllers, network cards, sound card, modems, USB devices, TV tuners and video cards. Its driver is downloadable in any freeware site on the internet and drivers may vary on the manufacturer's description and product line. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Cyrix Cx5520 Rev 1 PCI to ISA bridge errors before installing any driver updates.
