Windows 7: Problems with drivers

Problems with drivers

Thanks for looking in my thread! And yes, I've looked and looked for answers to my questions, but nothing exactly what I need...

I just installed Windows 7 64-bit onto my gaming computer, as seen in my system specs. My main concern is, I have an Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, and I don't know if Windows updated the drivers for the chipset or the onboard audio.

I tried to download the chipset and audio drivers from Asus, using Vista 64-bit, but they would not install normally... When I tried to use the Asus Install, it would say I am not using the correct operating system. So, I went straight to the setup.exe file, and it "installed" the stuff, but nothing like how I have seen on either Vista or XP. I doubt the "install" did anything.

So what can I do? I'm thinking my chipset is what is causing my loss in FPS for my games... BTW, I am using build 7229.

Hi TraptPatriot,

Did you run the install with compatability for Vista? I've had to do the same with my onboard GFX card as the native Windows drivers don't give me full control.

Once you've done that you can run Windows Update & see if that has any up-to-date drivers.

Hope this helps

Like Orbital Shark allready said.

Just try to install them in compatibilty mode and as admin.This should really work.

If not... give us feedback and we try to figure out the problem more detailed
