I recently installed windows 8.1 64 bits on my desktop and I probably still need to install the drivers for my CPU. However, these turned out to be hard to find. There are several programs that claim to be able to find the drivers (some provided by Intel self), but they don't seem to do the trick.
I recently had contact with chat support and they advised my to install the drivers for my motherboard, which I did. It did help, but the processor performance still lacks in comparison with before I updated my PC.
My motherboard is a MSI MS-7346. It should be compatible with the Intel Core 2 Quad CPU (they have been working together smoothly for 4 to 5 years now).
So my question is as simple as it can get:
"where can I find the correct drivers for my CPU?"
If possible with a link to where I can download them!
Thank you in advance!
Stephano, when you are installing drivers in a system, these are mostly related to the motherboard, not to the processor.
I recommend you to access MSI website and search for the most recently drivers available. I found this link; you may want to check it out
On downloadcenter.intel.com you will be able to find tools such as the Intel® Processor Diagnostics Tool and Intel® Processor Identification Utility. http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-031726.htm
