    Are These Motherboard Drivers Required to Download?


    So I had upgraded and then clean installed Windows 10. However now that I'm in Windows 10, I don't seem to be having the same issue that I had with Windows 7 which required me to install motherboard drivers to get access to the internet. But I already have access so maybe they were installed automatically? How do I find out?

    This is my motherboard and the link I would go to to get the drivers:
    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z...Desk_Download/

    So is there anyway of finding out if I already have the drivers installed, if I don't and I need to download them, or if I don't and no reason to download them.

    Go into the Device Manager control panel. If you don't see any yellow exclamation points, then Windows 10 has drivers for all of the hardware that it recognizes.

    There are a lot of drivers included with Windows 10. The only ones not included were nVidia graphics drivers for my new card, and even they appeared soon from Windows Update. (I found it better to download the full driver installation package from Visual Computing Leadership from NVIDIA, though.) I have since set things to not update drivers through Windows update; I'd rather do it myself, and I may install non-WHQL drivers at times.

    I've also updated some other drivers, but I imagine that is unnecessary.

    Yep, that is what happened to me. I first tried to install the Nvidia driver but it failed the system check. Turned out I had a yellow exclamation mark for my graphics card device. Turned out it downloaded the driver without me knowing and a simple restart fixed the issue. Anyway, everything seems to be good now.
