I have NVIDIA 190.38 drivers which are for win7x64 but from what I just saw right now, not the latest (looks like 190.62 is out). I will update and see the results.

I was wondering about my chipset drivers and where I can get the latest. I have an ASUS M3A32-MVP and when I checked a couple weeks ago, I didn't see anything available on their site for 7. Also, I am running 'Drivermax' and It didn't find anything for my chipset either, meaning I should have the latest I believe.

If don't exist drivers for 7 you should try for Vista instead,neverless I think you have already driver for chipset up to date.But I suspect you don't have the newest BIOS -for your motherboard is from 2009/06/11 ver 1705

XP, Vista, W7 64bit Home Premium
 
 

Intel drivers here - download from Guru3D.com
They may need to be installed in compatibility mode with vista if they wont install because of an OS mismatch -
To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.
I agree with Flavius they probably wont need updating. Dates dont mean much as they are mainly for the latest boards.

I haven't had the chance to try updating a few of my drivers and seeing if it fixes but I was reading this, if you guys haven't found this thread yet, check it out, seems like someone has found a possible fix.

ok, I had this same issue... computer would not go fully into sleep mode, the monitor would be blank (btw I was not getting check cable message on monitor so I know it was connected. I also swapped DVI cables, etc.)

the problem seemed to be with going to sleep because I had disabled an audio card that I was getting poor audio out of (Creative SB X-Fi. still working this issue). I enabled the audio card, and now the computer goes to sleep properly and resumes properly as well...

so, check you audio cards too, as I know most mother boards have a built in audio (Realtek) and many folks add another higher end card and disable the other...

good luck!

I had a similar problem. It would be worth checking that your monitor isnt confused about whether it is receiving an analog or digital signal from the display card:
