Ask any question coming in your mind. They all are most welcome Its good that you are wanting the reasons behind the suggested actions. I highly appreciate it.

The other components are mainly 3D drivers. Usually used by the people who wus 3Dsettings, with 3D glasses etc lol Most of us dont do those. So, those unnecessary components are better to not keep, whereas some nvidis components are failing there.

Anyway, I thought it is a Alienware M11xR3?

For RAMPAGE IV EXTREME, I'd suggest Chipset Version 9.3.0.102, dated 2013.02.05. But as far as I can see, its different.
Code:
FirmwareMajorRelease = 1
FirmwareMinorRelease = 1
BiosVendor = Alienware
BiosVersion = A01
BiosReleaseDate = 03/25/2011
SystemManufacturer = Alienware
SystemProductName = M11xR3
SystemFamily = 103C_5335KV
SystemVersion = A01
SystemSKU = xxx123x#ABA
BaseBoardManufacturer = Alienware
BaseBoardProduct = M11xR3
BaseBoardVersion = A01

Makes sense then not to have the other drivers then! Yes, my laptop is a M11x R3. I got the drivers downloading for my chipset, did you mean Chipset Version 9.3.0.1026? Not Chipset Version 9.3.0.102? I couldn't find one that ended in 102, am downloading 1026. Also would you be so kind and help me with SATA drivers as well? I am sorry if I am annoying at all asking for help with everything. I just want to be sure I install the right drivers, it is a little confusing having multiple downloads like a 258MB and a 4MB download as they are far apart in size, makes me wonder if both are needed. Also I really appriciate how kind you've been, it always makes me feel good having someone really nice like you help me out! Thank you!

Yes, I mean Version 9.3.0.1026.... its a typo.

ATM you are using the system native driver, msahci.sys. You may continue with it, no other SATA driver might not be a must.

OK! I just installed the Intel Chipset Driver, my PC is rebooting right now. So I don't need to update my SATA? If it would help I'd like to get all my drivers and software updated to the newest, then do so about each year or six months.

No, it isn't (if you are referring to my desktop), but occasionally I will be playing a game and it will minimize.

I'd suggest you to open a new thread in Gaming - Windows 7 Help Forums about that issue.

At the same time, observe if you are getting more BSODs or not. Update the thread and let us know

Hello - hope someone can help. I continue to get the BSOD when using SONAR X3 DAW. It happens randomly, but the frequency has been increasing. I used SlimDriver to update the drivers thinking that might be a fix, but it's still happening. Any help would be much appreciated.
