Windows 7: Motherboard Drivers, needed?

01 Oct 2009   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate X86
Motherboard Drivers, needed?

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-M61VME-S2.
On their site for windows 7 there is only the realtek audio drivers.
However, there are vistra drivers.
I installed windows 7 and the connection to the internet is working(on xp without the chipset drivers there was no internet connection).
Should I try to install the vista drivers or it is unnecessary? Everything is working ok as far as I can tell.
(I did installed the win 7 nvidia drivers for my graphic card)

If it's working leave it alone.

Like others said, as long as there are no yellow question marks (?) in your device manager you're good to go

I would keep the windows 7 drivers myself as long as it's working and there are no errors or little yellow symbols then leave it.

I have to also AGREE with the others.... IF it works., LEAVE IT ALONE.
attempting to update when it works usually leads to problems.
