Thank you for reporting the issue.
You may look for the driver in your download folder. Otherwise, you can also use this installer: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/20775/Intel-Chipset-Device-Software-INF-Update-Utility-
Thanks a lot for your swift reply. I installed SetupChipset.exe. The installation completes successfully but when I recheck the installed version using the Intel Driver Update Utility the utility still tells me the drivers have not been updated. Please see below screenshots. The installed version is dated 21-06-2006. Any further help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
It seems the Intel® Driver Update Utility is not detecting the correct version. This way you can find the exact version of the driver you have installed:
Run Registry Editor (Start -> Run -> regedit -> enter)
Once in the Registry Editor expand "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
Next Expand "SOFTWARE"
Next Expand "INTEL"
Click on "Infinst"
The registry editor gives me the following version. This is the correct version. The Intel Driver Update Utility apparently detects the chipset driver version in some other way.
On the other hand, should I not have any drivers in the device manager which have this driver version? Now I get the impression that the drivers in the device manager have not been updated and that the Intel Driver Update Utility detects the driver version from the installed drivers in the device manager.
You have the latest version. The other drivers in Device Manager do not need to show the same version.
Thanks. Please update the Intel Driver Update Utility so that the chipset driver version gets detected correctly.
I have exactly the same problem and after reading it now here, I checked my registry - everything is fine, I obviously have got the latest 10.0.27 .. though your program tells me I have installed a 9.xx version and tries to update and update and update and fails and fails and fails.. how many hours I tried this now.. your Intel Driver Update Utility really is a big FAIL!
In this case, if you have an OEM system you can have some problems using this utility; Intel provides generic versions of drivers for general purposes. Your computer manufacturer may have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to your driver. Intel recommends you contact your computer manufacturer for the latest drivers specific updates and technical support information.
I also recommend to perform Microsoft Windows* update to bring your operating system up-to-date with the latest .NET.
I seem to have the same issue with the updated intel chipset install being indicated as a failure. Assuming the correct chipset actually was installed - I still have a problem with subsequent usb port deactivation by automatic driver install function. What happens is that I proceed with un-installing the usb drivers (using the device manager) and then restart the computer - I get temporary use of my mouse and key board - until the automatic driver install function kicks on. I have attempted to block this via two methods (i.e. in device manager hardware settings and in the windows update settings) but neither stops the inevitable attempted search and update of drivers - that fails and subsesquently deactivates the usb ports/ devices. The only thing visible in the device manager (after the auto driver instral caused the deactivation) are two intel chipset drivers, and under the other devices - two parallel "unknown devices" that subsequent disappear if I again uninstall the two intel chipsets - subsequent restart repeats the cycle of usb/mouse/keyboard devices work temporarily until the auto driver install deactivates.
the problem I believe started a while ago when I had an automatic windows update that inactivated usb ports to any new usb devices - when I tried to fix the problem by un-installing usb drivers/ downloading the latest intel chipset utility and rebooting computer the problem expanded - so now no usb devices work (for any significant period of time). Need some help here to see if there is any hope of salvaging using the windows 7 OS on my computer and using the usb ports. Thanks.
In that case you can update your driver from your system manufacturer website.
What is your system model? I can help you to find the driver with your system model.
I got the same error my graphic model is: Intel (R) q45/q43 express chipset

Hello, I'm having the same issue. I'm replying on this thread because I followed the Same steps but the problem is still here. Moreover, when I look in the Registry > Intel > Infinst, the 'Version' key is missing - there is no 'version'.
I tried installing via the Intel Driver Update Utility and also directly from the Intel-download website but still the problem persists:
What should I do please?
