Hello,

When reading one of the blue screen posts, I picked up on that an upgrade to a new motherboard (which I did about 2 months ago), resets your drivers to the original drivers on the disk.

So do I now go to the device manager»hardware and at the drivers window, do I simply click the upgrade button, or need I download the drivers somewhere else 1st?

Regards,
Juanita

hi Jnita & welcome to Geeks2Go

The "update driver" button in Device Manager only searches Microsoft's own driver library on it's website, with the result that it will often report "no newer driver found", leading you to believe that a newer driver doesn't exist. A newer driver may well exist, it's just that Microsoft doesn't have it.

The usual procedure for getting the latest drivers relevant to your PC is to visit the PC manufacturer's website (usually they will be in the 'downloads' section of their customer support pages) or if the drivers are for the motherboard itself and your PC manufacturer doesn't have a driver page on it's website, you can visit the website of the motherboard manufacturer if you know it's make and model number.

Hello Ztruker,

Thanks for your offer.

Motherboard:
Foxconn P4M8907MB-2.0-RS2H
VIA P4M890+VT8237A
SOCKET 775
FSB 1066/800/533MHz
PCTEX 16
DDR2 533/400
USB 2.0
6 CHANNEL AUDIO
10/100M Lan
RAID
SERIAL ATA

UPC CODE: 683562102117
EAN CODE: 6938279105925

The link to the drivers would be greatly appreciated.

To install the driver(s), should I just 'run' the dowload or is it more involved than that?

Thank You,
Regards,
Juanita

ps. now that I saw the socket is 775, didn't someone say that they are not going to be manufactured anymore?
