Windows 7: Fresh Windows 7 install doesn't find drivers

01 Feb 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Thanks for the help too AddRam, I had tried to install off the mobo disc but it was taking every driver except the ethernet, that one always failed. I tried the download from the Asus site, same one you linked, in case the drivers on the disc were old but it was the same problem. All the drivers installed except for the ethernet.

Just for future notice, windows does not always install the drivers you need, after an install you always have to run windows update. It depends on who`s hardware you`re installing windows on. A Dell, 99 x out of a 100 you will have to go to Dell to get the network drivers, if not everytime.

Sometimes you have to go into device manager to update an ethernet driver and you have to point windows to where you have the driver stored, the cd drive for example, for windows to install the driver.

Now just install your video drivers, from the link I gave you, then run windows update, fully, and you should be good.

Did you run all rounds of Important and Optional Updates as instructed earlier? You only needed to install the LAN driver to get online to do this.

How many drivers were still missing after doing this?
