Windows 7: Cannot download my boards drivers

Cannot download my boards drivers

Have an Asus P8Z77-V that I am trying to download drivers for and IE keeps coming up to say it is blocking the site - official Asus one.

The one that did download before this started happening opens out into a myriad of different references none of which I can make is the driver.

Surely it cannot be this difficult -after a week of complete frustration of getting this new build up and running and it still is not right this is the last straw?

Are other computers also blocking the site? Why not download driver from another pc...and put it in usb stick?

Would you post a snip of the references you refer to?
Is you security blocking ASUS maybe? Check in IE, Tools/Internet Options/Security and see if ASUS is blocked under Internet or included under Restricted Sites.

Sorry folks have found the problem.

I reset the CMOS this morning because of other problems now I set the date and time in that and it was not until I downloaded or try to emails that an error turned out to be the wrong time and date now I have corrected that in CP and the drivers I am saving now

I just thought that because I set the time and date in the BIOS it would automatically do it on the machine proper

One query remains though when I open these drivers they contain an awful lot of references that I do not know which is the actual driver?

Look sorry again re the confusion it's been a long week in paradise

John if by references you mean files and folders, there should be on called setup.exe or ASUS setup, double click one of those.
Odd, your time should have updated itself in w7 once you went on the net.

Hey Gary sorry for late reply mate have been doing some research. Hum yes I found digging down a bit got me to most of the Asus set up ones but I think it would be extremely confusing for anyone doing this sort of stuff for the first time it has me wondering why it just cant be a one or two step process.

But anyway I have done them all bar the BIOS which just does not want to install - again a very complicated process using that flash feature in the GUI or the on board button. I have however got version 1616 on which is only one behind the latest and that only adds something to do with different CPU's.

I haven't tried the card again yet I might leave that until tomorrow or perhaps later this evening - the one thing that has happened though is that the boot set up seems to stay on the HDD as the first device hopefully it will stay that way.

This board is certainly strange in that it seems to think for itself by that I mean after changing settings in the BIOS it takes a fair while to boot and thereafter boots as one would expect.

As for that date and time thing yes that is very strange as if the board and Windows were dueling LOL!!

If you change the time in BIOS...it will the same in win7. End win7 automatically adjust wrong time using network time servers.

John download the newest BIOS, save to desktop. Extract (decompress) it and find a file with a .rom extension, that is the BIOS file. Put it on a USB stick formatted to FAT32 or FAT16 and plug it on with the machine running and reboot into BIOS. Select the TOOLS tab and choose ASUS EZ Flash Utility/enter. See the snips below for the rest.

Right click and Open in New Tab, left click once for full size.
