    D945GTP USB drivers missing

      I re-installed XP Pro and loaded the chipset and I get no drivers for N10/ICH7 Universal USB Host Controller.  Anyone know where to find them??

          The Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility allows the operating system to identify all the pieces of the chipset by loading a set of inf files, that information is primarily the product name for the piece ofhardware. This allows the operating system to show the correct name forthat piece of hardware in Device Manager. It is a misconception to call this software as a driver.

           

          The Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility does not provide USB drivers. As matter of fact, Intel develops the host controller, but any driver update should come from the operating system developer.

           

          In this particular case if you have already installed the Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility, the operating system should properly recognize the USB host controller on the system, if you still do not have any USB functionality, check on the Device Manager, if any of the USB root hubs is marked with an exclamation mark (probably all of them) just test by right clicking on the device with a conflict, then click on uninstall and once it is uninstalled, just restart the system.
