Windows 7: AMD Driver problems - SM Bus Controller, Ethernet Controller

AMD Driver problems - SM Bus Controller, Ethernet Controller

Hello guys, I've been having a lot of issues with my AMD drivers, specially when it comes to chipset and video drivers. I recently had to downgrade my video drivers to June 2015 release date, that was the only solution found so I could run games properly (with recent drivers, games that should run with 100fps+ were running with 15fps)..

But that is not the point of this thread, instead, I'm here because after a few weeks running this drivers, I noticed my WiFi was not connecting to my router (wich is working, I can get access with other computers/cel phones). In my drivers list, the Ethernet controller and SM Bus controller are flagged as not installed.
I've tried to find these drivers, but AMD seems to only release packages of drivers. I've come to this download page:
Chipset

where I should be getting the drivers that solve my problem, but the big issue is: apparently, by doing it, i will be reinstalling the latest video drivers (for the APU), and that is ABSOLUTELY NOT what i want.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? And I mean: where can I get the sm bus and ethernet controller driver w/o having to install a bunch of unnecessary drivers?

My notebook is a MSI 60X 3BE
video card: Radeon HD 8970M
chipset: AMD A10-5750M (with Radeon HD 8650G)
motherboard: MSI MS-16FK

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I've downloaded the drivers in the link, installed and SM Bus is running properly, but Ethernet doesn't. Any further help?

Thanks for the support, I tried one last resource before going into BIOS update, and it worked.
If anyone come to face the same problems, I suggest downloading Snappy Driver Installer (I usually don't like to download this kind of stuff, but this one I found on sourceforge and therefore thought of it as a trustful download, link given below).

The program gave me a list of a bunch of drivers I could download and install, then I selected the ones I had conflict with, 5 min later, everything was working fine. To access internet and download the drivers, I used a USB WiFi adapter.

In case it does't work, I guess the BIOS update will work too. Thx again for the help.
