Hello CM19, you can get drivers for your network controller from the motherboard manufacturer’s website or generic drivers from this link: Intel® 82579 Gigabit Ethernet Controller — Support for Intel® 82579LM and 82579V Gigabit Network Connection
Please let me know if you need to update any other drivers.
That did solve part of the problem, but does not solve the overall issue of easily scanning and updating the Intel drivers I need.
I do not really know what other drivers i need, I have tried searching on my own like to see if i could find out if I had the latest driver for my processor but found nothing.
The link you provided only updated the Link Speed of my Network adapter Intel 82579V, but the driver date and version still the same.
Under Device Manager, Intel products appear under Network adapters, Processors, System devices, and USB controllers.
For my Intel 82579V, the driver date is 5/02/14. And for the others, like my Intel core i5-3570K, driver date is 2009 to 2006, so I can only assume these need an update without knowing if you actually did release more up-to-date drivers.
I understand your concern regarding the results of the Intel® Driver Update Utility. Similar issues have been reported previously, so hopefully they will be addressed soon. In the meantime, let me provide you with the drivers you might need to update:
Intel® Chipset Device Software: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/20775/Intel-Chipset-Device-Software-INF-Update-Utility-
The Intel® Management Engine driver is only provided by the motherboard or system manufacturer.
The processor itself does not require a driver. The graphics controller built into the processor does, but you are using a third party graphics adapter; therefore, the Intel® HD Graphics controller became disabled and it is not being used.
The latest version of Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Software is 126.96.36.1992; however, some users have had better experience with the version 12.9. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=Intel%28R%29+Rapid+Storage+Technology
The USB 3.0 driver is natively included in Windows* 8.1, so it does not need to be downloaded separately.
This is basically what the Intel® SIU report is showing; if it is missing something else let me know what you see in Device Manager.
