Drivers for New Computer

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently built a computer for the first time and I think I may not have installed all the necessary drivers. What drivers do I need? Also for the chipset driver, how do I know which one I need?

Looks like an old school motherboard if the Nvidia 7o25 chipset is any indication. The drivers you need are all here:

I assume you've already installed the drivers of the GeForce GTX 650Ti. smile.gif Bt if you have not, they can be found at www.nvidia.com biggrin.gif

Yes I did install the drivers for the video. Am I supposed to get drivers from both links? And I'm sure which ones I need.

You have a ASRock N68C-GS FX so it should be the second link in my previous post.

In my experience, when doing a new installation it's usually just the sound card drivers that I really need. Most devices already have stock drivers from the Windows installation. But just be sure go to Device Manager and check which devices are showing a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Those are usually the devices that needs a driver to be download.

Okay. Thank you for your help. None of the devices have a triangle so I guess I got them all. Pokemon!
