ASUS M3A78 Pro: Driver Help (Win 7 x64)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,

I'm trying to help a friend with an issue in preparation for Diablo III. He attempted to play the open-beta last weekend, but his PC would lag and eventually freeze a few minutes into game play. I later found out that his PC often freezes during medium-high loads. At first, I thought his hardware was too old and needed to be upgraded, but after some research, I do not believe this to be true.

I am now going to upgrade all his drivers to the latest and greatest as he reformatted and installed Windows 7 a few months ago, but he did not install any drivers. The issue at hand right now is trying to find a chipset driver for Win7 x64. The ASUS drivers page (http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&s=24&m=M3A78+Pro&os=&hashedid=SChThDvEAJ31GxGV) does not have a chipset driver for Win7, only XP.

Once I am able to get all the drivers up to date, if his PC freezes still, I will move on from there, but I figured this was a good place to start. FYI - this is a non-overclocked PC, everything is on default settings.


I will list his system specs below and hopefully OCN can help me out.

Mobo: ASUS M3A78 Pro (AMD 780G/SB700)
CPU: AMD X2 6400+
RAM: Corsair 4GB 1333MHz (no detail)
GFX: ATI Radeon HD4860
PSU: OCZ StealthXStream 600W
HD: 600GB 7200RPM (no detail)




Thanks,
Pez

I found this, which I think it is saying that the drivers will be the default that Windows provides: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Hardware&p=ASUS%20M3A78%20PRO%20GREEN%20ATX%20-%20AMD%20780G%20Motherboard&v=ASUS&uid=M3A78%20PRO%20GREEN&l=en-US&pf=6&pi=6&s=%20Adobe%20Design%20Pro&os=64-bit

I will upgrade the rest of his drivers (BIOS, Audio, Graphics, etc) & go from there. I had him order a Hyper 212+ CPU cooler as his temps are running at about 70C idle.
