Windows 7: Critical Drivers not found on Windows Start-up, but are really present

Critical Drivers not found on Windows Start-up, but are really present

I have only one problem with my laptop and that is at the start-up. I open up my laptop, and what I see is that there are several drivers that Windows is searching for, but cannot find.

So, as a pretty advanced user, I simply downloaded the required drivers and installed them.

But when I re-started my computer, the "Searching for Drivers" pop up came up again.

So, I took the software approach. I downloaded Driver Genius, and then Driver Robot to install drivers that are supposedly missing. They installed the drivers, but when I re-started the computer, the deplorable screen cam up again.

I realised then, that the drivers are actually installed, but Windows cannot seem to be able to find them at all....

Kindly help me with this, as there seems to be some serious driver problems.

Kind Regards,

UPDATE:

The Driver that the System cannot find is Intel 5 Series Chipset 3400 - SMBus SB30.

I hate tried re-installing the Chipset, but it does not install for some reason...

Any help?

Hi RawVix, if there are no win 7 drivers available for the chipset try downloading the vista drivers and install them in compatibility mode Compatibility Mode
