You see, I've got this Dell Latitude E6440 that I'm having all manner of difficulties with. In any case, I'm doing some tests on it, and in my testing... I noticed something.
The Intel Chipset Installation Utility doesn't... appear... to actually DO anything. No driver gets updated in Device Manager. After a completely fresh Windows 7 64-bit install, I run the following command:
It proceeds "to install," IE a progress bar happens, and then it finishes. If I go to Device Manager, EVERYTHING is still using these ancient Microsoft drivers dating to 2006. What gives, guys? This is some serious nonsense. The E6440 uses a QM87 chipset, so the optimal drivers aren't "built-in" to a vanilla Windows 7 install, which came out before the QM87 did.
Why can't you just publish a driver package that works across all systems, like your old one did? Is it really that hard?
