Windows 7: PCI Standard Host CPU Bridge

21 Jun 2011   #1

64 Bit Windows 7 Home Premium (SP1)
PCI Standard Host CPU Bridge

Hi guys.

I've been having some BSOD probs, so I'm currently updating all of my drivers.

The only one I can't find an update for is called PCI Standard Host CPU Bridge. Could you point me in the right direction, so I can get the update?

Also, for some reason, PCI Standard Host CPU Bridge is listed twice in Device Manager... and both entries seem identical. Would this mean I have to update both?

Many thanks

can no-one help me with this?

i know i'm supposed to update ALL my drivers before trying to solve a BSOD problem.

i downloaded driver detective and it's telling me the only driver that still needs updating is for 'PCI Standard host CPU Bridge.'

i just can't find anywhere on the web where i can download a newer version of this for win 7 64 bit. the version i have is 6.1.7601.17514 - which is dated 21.6.2006.

does anyone know where i can find a newer version?

i feel like i can't look at any other BSOD causes until all drivers are up to date.

Since this is 2 months later after you posted, you probably already have the problem solved. I had just about the same experience. Driver Detective showed a bunch of out of date drivers for my system and wanted payment to give Driver update info.

I did some searching for a couple of days and had updated a few of the Drivers. After more searching I found a program called 'SlimDrivers Free' that scans your computer system and then sets up Driver Downloads for free. After about 1/2 hour I had updated almost all of the drivers.

SlimDrivers Free - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

It's the green 'CNET Secure Download' option. It requires registration which takes a few minutes.

Anyway, hope this info is helpful to others in the same situation.
