Updating ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe M'board (Win 7 Problem)

I've been wanting to update my BIOS & ChipSet (not sure if same thing?) for sometime now

I've been on the ASUS website to search for them, but they are NOT doing any Windows 7 X64 drivers.

Dose anyone know any alternatives?

Thank You
Dan!

They're not,

Asus has nothing to do with the drivers they all come from Nvidia, about all Asus might do with them is change the installer slightly so that it includes their name. Also Nvidia declared the NF4 legacy status quite a while ago (shortly after Vista came out), and there will be no more NF4 drivers.

You have a couple of options with that NF4,

1. Use it with the drivers that Windows installed (which come from Nvidia), which are sufficient for everything to work as it should.

2. If you really want something newer than what Windows installs have a look here,

Personally I would just go with option #1, and did with almost the same board as yours (A8N-SLI SE) and it works as well in 7 as it did in Vista.
