Windows 7: Mobo Drivers - MS or vendors?

Mobo Drivers - MS or vendors?

If device manager is happy that Windows 7 has managed to find drivers for everything automatically, would the team recommend leaving well alone or going for the mobo vendors drivers?

(I ask because all was well until I installed the Asus Windows 7 drivers for my P5Q...)

Personally, I would get the latest drivers I could from the manufacturer. If anything goes wrong, uninstall them and let Windows Update install automatically.

Ahh. So if I uninstall them, Windows 7 will go back to its defaults??
Hadn't realised that.
Thanks

If Windows detects hardware without drivers, it will attempt to automatically install them from Windows Update.
