You should not have to update your Motherboard chipset drivers. Do not do so if there is nothing wrong with your computer. If there is something wrong, don't blindly update these drivers but try and get some help on these forums.

Follow the maxim - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

These driver checkers flag you every time some language package of e.g. Hungarian has been updated or some other nit was changed. If you speak Hungarian, that may be interesting but else it is of no use.

As Gene said, if it works, don't change it. I would go only with the official MS updates

Thank you for your Advice, I will do that.
Where could you do MS Updates?
Would Windows would do this task?
Do I have to GO for that Factory Website?
In another word's all updates are Base IN Language Updates?

Thank you for advice, I'm gratefully.

The Windows updates come automatically or look into Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update

I personally do not prefer using 3rd party driver checking utilities. They are just kind of useless sometimes suggesting unneeded driver updates, installing which might even break your system.

The only updates you need are:

1. Microsoft updates(as already posted) enable automatic updates and it will update your system for you and prompt to restart after update as neccessary.

2. Hardware driver updates from the computer manufacturer' s website for your hardware.

3. Motherboard manufacturer's website for custom or self built computers.

4. Hardware manufacturer's website for any hardware you may have installed since owning the computer.

Driver checker and similar programs are not reliable for reason mentioned above and because in many cases identify incorrect drivers for installation which can cause system instability.

Same as original advice if it aint broke don't fix it there is no need if evrything is working as it should.

You should only update drivers if there is a an issue you are having with a particular piece of heardware.
