Windows 7: ultimate steal Problems

I have not found any newer/better chipset drivers from a manufacturer's website than are in the Win7 installer yet, after 100+ installs.

If they find one, sure. But why install chipset just because that is the way it was done in XP or Vista? MS took a whole different approach with drivers here.

The most recent example is Mitch656, who was helped to install his mobo maker's latest chipset to try to fix wake freezing. It not only didn't fix the problem, but now he has new ones.
