To ypdate the Intel chips driver you can use Intel's automatic driver update from their site. It is at the bottom left side "Automatically find drivers".
thx mach04

i installed the last version. however the intel log that in my pc (C:\Intel\Logs)

and other installations logs (of intel) still claiming that i got the old version.., also when i press "next" on the driver's installation it just jump to the "finish" page and said that the driver was installed successfully.. but no installation bar was seen at all..

but when i check it in this Intel's automatic driver update from their site it show me that i got the last version and that it valid. there is any place or progrem that i can check the driver's version with? other then intel site? xD btw till now i not encounter any problems.. yet

The qualiofied vendor list is a document.. now how would you install a document
Installing the intel matrix storage driver might improve your hard disk speeds
And the jmicron driver is a driver for a STA controller on your board that's not part of the intel ones.. when you look in your motherboard manual there is a groudn plan of your board somewhere On that plan you will see one sata connector that's apart from the rest, at the bottom right I think, and that's the jmicron one So if you plan to use that one you can install the driver

thx WolfSoul.

btw did you meant here

As I remember when I updated my drivers at Intels homepage, it didn't show any installation window, from that you can only update drivers related to Intel's products, even though it looks at you graphic and audio card. You need to go to the producers homepage and find the right driver for them.

I use a program System Information for Windows to get the version number of my hardwares, its free and you can download it here SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala

On the left hand side you'll see a list of the hardwares, click on each one and see the version number of your pc's hardwares like graphic or audio card.

You can also see the BIOS version that is already in your pc. A very handy program to get information about your pc.

Your Intel drivers are well updated now.

A BIOS generally should not be updated unless you are having issues and have a strong reason to believe that a BIOS update will resolve those issues.

Why do you want to update the BIOS?
I agree!

To verify whether the drivers version are updated according to Intel, it is also possible using a driver software that detects and install those you need to update. There are many of these kinds both paid and freeware types. You can choose one of them to search for the drivers you have on your pc which shows you the version number.

I would delete the old log files from Intel and run the update at Intel's homepage once again, hoping it will create a new log file.

The free one I know is this: Free Driver Update, Driver Download Software - Device Doctor

I add a couple of comments for others who may pick up on this thread.
I flashed my ASUS motherboard a few times recently. It's the first time I have flashed a motherboard and an expensive one at that!
The BIOS upgrades actually had what appears to be a serious bug related to temperature monitoring and fan control. I'm waiting for ASUS to respond.
So
1) I flashed with quite a bit of concern but it did seem to go ok.
2) I was also able to flash back to the earlier version.
3) I learned - a new BIOS version may introduce new problems! So I believe flash as a last resort.

as long as you can back up your old bios and you do well research before you flash (and ofc... if you know what you going to do) it should be fine as long as you don't get black out....

anyway in my case the last Bios version was out for allmost a year , and it seem that no one encounter any type of bug from the reasearch i done. so if someone have my Mobo version he don't need to fear from any bugs

However Do search people's commits in order to know if your Bios have some bugs before you run to flash, also if your bios is more then year out without any sign that it going to be replace by "fixed" version , it usually a safe bet, but the thing with bets that you must have a luck to win them =D
