    Is my Motherboard kippered?

    One of my desktops has a old Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2PV motherboard fitted. Thus had been a faithful servant for many many years.
    Giving a few quirky problems recently - thus caused me to visit device manager and look around.
    I noticed three yellow triangles were in evidence, relating as follows
    2 entries PCI to open host controller
    1 entry - Standard enhanced PCI to USB Host controller.
    So far all I have done is uninstall these and rebooted - no change.
    Is this board redeemable - your thoughts appreciated.
    Unfortunately I do not have the original installation disk

    I don't think so, likely got that way with 1903 or 1909 when they decided what drivers you should have.

    Here is how to identify drivers. Then go to Gigabyte's site for your MB and find the drivers. Use 10 drivers if available, if not, 8, if not then 7.

    Right click Start, click Device Manager, right click device you are having issue with, click “Properties”, click on “Details” tab, in “Property” box use the drop down to select “Hardware IDs”, copy and paste first line in “Value” box to Google. Google can usually tell you what device driver you are looking for.

    I'd guess chipset drivers, and/or the IME (Intel Management Engine) drivers. Both are available form Gigabyte for Windows 10.

    GA-H61M-S2PV (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE U.S.A.

    The link is for Revision 1.0 for the board, but there are links to later revs (through 2.3) on the page. They may all use the same drivers.

    This is the US site, but I imagine that the drivers are country agnostic.

    They date from 2015, but at least they are claimed to have Win10 support.

    Many thanks to you both
    Had a good cleanup of all connections etc - then downloaded suggested drivers, All now restored to its former glory, so will do a 24 hour soak test.
    Thanks again

    Glad you sorted it. I have a 2012 Gigabyte motherboard which runs fine under the latest version of Windows 10. Gigabyte support will still help you if you have problems. I had a recent issue with the PC hanging at the boot screen. This was solved by turning off the Fast Boot option in the BIOS on their advice.
