How to install chipset drivers?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My system is running an i5 2500k with asus p67 pro mobo.

I know how to disable windows from auto-updating a driver.

The problem is I don't know which specific driver to choose where I want to update the chipset driver from.

I go to device manager, but I can't find a specific item that says chipset. I follow intel's install instructions to win 7 after OS install, but once it gets to the item I need to update, it gets kinda confusing.

Any help? I'll be able to supply more information if needed.

Use your ASUS disk that came with the mobo, or go on the ASUS support site and download the chipset driver.

I guess I don't see the problem then...double click it?

Your device manager wont have a specific thing that says Chipset, but the Asus disk and website do, you want to upgrade drivers from there, not through what windows things is best.

That generally doesn't override the windows driver, check for yourself and you will see for sure.

For example, when I updated my ethernet driver the other day. But not until I manually set Windows to not update the driver, and manually extracted, and chose the win 7 update file, was I able to update the ethernet to the correct driver, rather then the windows generic one.

If you have always just double clicked your drivers to install, you will see that some of them don't actually go through.

That doesn't make any sense as I have never had an issue. I think you have issues with your windows install, not the drivers. On my rig and on my brother's rig the chipset drivers install without fail and replace the windows generic.

Never once had this problem in my 2 years of IT support doing tons of driver installs, but I don't know everything, could easily be wrong. Best of luck.

I guess my question then is, under what item in the device manager do I check to see if the chipset drivers have installed.

(You should put up your system specs too) If you already have the drivers for it you should only need to double click it and it will ask if you want to install it?

If you already have the up to date drivers it will tell you.
