Make sure you remove / uninstall any other version / remnants of the chipset driver before installing the new one.
If you still can't install using the installer, you could try to update manually (via device manager) instead, by utilizing just the .inf files; those are available here.

AoS_Nexus try installing your manufacture system drivers one by one, check the following link to download them according to your OS.
Hi Yseguy, it worked!! i tried before and the device manager told me "no driver found here" but with your files it worked! i took me several minutes to update drivers manually but it is all ok now.
Thanks you very much sir. Just a question, what i did was just updating the devices "names" so windows can display it or did i activated them? because you know, all applications and environment work properly even with the yellow triangle and "no driver installed for the device" thing.
Hi Hellen, thanks you for your reply, the installer never worked before but with the INF file that's all ok.
Thanks to you two. Best Regards,
Good to know that it worked for you.
Regarding device drivers on the Windows platform, there are two things to keep in mind:
- Windows supports a lot of hardware out-of-the-box already, including many, if not all PC mainboards (and their chipsets) on the market today. It still could make sense to install drivers provided by hardware manufacturers, for better compatibility and/or additional functionality.
- Some 3rd party drivers sit "on top" of drivers already provided by Windows - they're called filter drivers. Their main purpose is to extend the functionality of the generic Windows drivers already present.
So for one of the two reasons stated above, your system worked without the proprietary Intel drivers, and with all those yellow exclamation marks in device manager - the drivers provided by Windows did the job, albeit without any extended functionality provided only by Intel's drivers.
