Windows 7: Experiencing driver issues reverting from Windows 8 to 7

Experiencing driver issues reverting from Windows 8 to 7


I have just formatted a new Asus laptop with windows 8, and put a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64.

Unfortunately there are now 3 drivers missing: Ethernet Controller, SM Bus Controller and USB Controller. I tried both Chipset drivers designed for windows 8 from Asus's support site, without success.

The Laptop is an Asus F552EP, CPU - AMD Quad core A6-5200 2.0Ghz, 4GB, HDD 750

Can anyone point me in the direction of drivers which will work?

Many Thanks
Ben

Thanks Maxie,

Is the Lan driver I need from that site this one: Win7 and Server 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program (SID:1682807)

I looked through the list in device manager and also in system devices, I couldn't see anything named Chipset.

Could it be named something else?

Yes that is the one should work ... Are there any Intel Devices listed under System Devices ?

No AMD either in System Devices, but on further searching, under Processors in the device manager list there is AMD A6-5200 with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics. This is listed 4 times.

Excellent. Thanks, that fixed up the missing USB controller driver. Now only the SM Bus controller. Although I have no idea what it does. Is there a driver available for this?

Initially there were 5 missing drivers, I got the wireless from the Asus website, and I installed two graphic drivers from AMD's site thinking one hadn't worked.

Now under display adapters I have 2 listed, an AMD Radeon HD 8400 /R3 series and an HD 8600M series. The graphics for this laptop is actually an HD 8670M.

Should I uninstall the 8400 and stick with the 8600M, or is there a better option?

Select the SM Bus controller. Right click select Property's / Details Tab ..

In the Volume section there should be some info there ..


Please Post it ... Leave the Graphics alone for the moment ...
