I need responses so bad. pls response
maybe your board is dying, that would really be heartbreaking since it's so unique on this lovely planet. RMA?
I don't know how to rma and btw you killed me by saying that fellow *faints*
Why fix something if it ain't broke?
You told that the system was running fine, so there's no need to re-install the chipset drivers.
Installing new drivers is only needed when the computer has problems with the hardware and then still, look at the chipset update documentation what is solved in the new driver. It's not the case that your problem is fixed in the newer driver so that result would be the same.
If a board has an hardware failure, then windows usual does not boot or leads to the well known BSOD.
Conclusion: I would not worry.
Now if for some reason you have to re-install, there's system restore or , first remove the existing chipset driver.
Reboot the computer, windows will now find new hardware and will install the drivers again, IF the once installed drivers are not damaged.
If windows can not auto install the drivers, then it's the time to install them . Be sure to use the correct drivers. No 32 bit on a 64 bit OS or vice versa.
the msg he claims to get should not come up, you forgot about that.
