Hi everyone, I was intending to upgrade my win xp x64 to a Windows 7 in my pc. I started searching for the basic drivers, and I cant find the appropriate driver for my mother board, it is a MSI K8N NEO 4-F.
MSI Global – Mainboard - K8N Neo4-F (PCB 1.0)

does anyone now if it is possible to install win 7 x64 in my computer?

thanks in advance

You're not going to find Windows 7 chipset drivers for it as Nvidia dropped support for it shortly after Vista came out. The best you're going to find is the last Vista driver for it,

NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.23 WHQL

And yes you can run 64 bit windows on it, just use the 64 bit Vista driver,

NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.23 WHQL

Another option is to use one of the modded driver packs from here,

Win7/Vista: Optimized nForce Driver Packs • nForcersHQ.com

They have taken the better bits from the various driver releases and combined them together.

Dear Stormy, thanks for your help, could you please tell me if this is the only driver I will need for the motherboard or I need anything else?
I the MSI page I could find this two other drivers
MSI Global – Download Center
for the audio device (I suppose)

and

MSI Global – Download Center

--not very sure what for, honestly---

so, is it enough with the one you told me or do I need this other two,

many thanks for helping this newbe trying to learn

For the chipset drivers, yes.

As for the two you linked too, the first is for the Realtek onboard audio and you can get a Windows 7 driver for it directly from Realtek,

Realtek

The second one is a CPU driver that isn't needed for Windows 7 as it already has it built in.
