Sorry for the double posting (i.e. in subject and body? Oops ......
One way is to download the needed drivers and install them manually. Here is the link to the drivers (http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%c2%ae+965+Express+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Desktop+Board+DP965LT).
Another would be to go to the device manager, right click the device that needs a driver update and choosing update driver and "search the internet ....".
I've done all that but nothing still seems to work.
It is probably because there wont be any updated drivers for that motherboard and windows 7. Is your system working fine? if so no need to update drivers.
I agree with Cpt.Dogfruit that there are no new drivers being developed. How did you know that there are new ones in the first place?
Both Smarttweak and DriverMax said their were updated ones. Anyone since I'm not having any problems, I'll just keep things as is. Thanks to all.
But are Systems Drivers part of the Motherboard? Sorry for being such a novice.
Go in device manager pick the items that have marks next to them left click right click , select properties , Go to update driver let windows search automaticly. see how many you can get that way , Prob. most of them.
The general rule is "if it is working without any problem don't do anything". Windows has the auto update and it will tell you if there are new updates including drivers. Usually for drivers it is presented as an option update.
Smarttweak and DriverMax might be asking you to buy one of them.
Yep, the software companies are probably trying to sell their software just like other sites saying your computer is infected.
Hi Ricky, There are a number of things missing from your original question such as: which particular drivers are supposedly old? Also, are you running the 32 or 64 bit version of windows 7?
I usually stick by the adage that “if it ain't broke don't fix it,” but I understand the desire for more power and better performance however infinitesimally small.
I suppose that you are looking for the motherboard drivers since you have posted to the Intel forum. Looking for your board:
I can see that your board is out of development for windows 7. Fortunately, All is not lost because in Microsoft's Wisdom they decided that windows 7 should be compatible with vista drivers. Again, looking at your board:
This results in some drivers for the motherboard, LAN and Audio.
I would suggest that before installing these drivers you take a current system restore point. Also if the driver fails to perform as expected then you also able to roll back individual drivers in the driver manager rather than everything to the last system restore point. Windows 7 gives you these excellent fall back features so take full advantage of them.
I have found through experience that vista drivers don't always work as good as specifically tailored windows 7 drivers, but your options are limited because your board is out of development. As I said before, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
