Some suggestions HG.
1. When updating your computer stay with it.
2. Don't use Sleep or Hibernation for a while. Get your system up and running with all the updates and programs you want for a few days. Then get into Sleep, Hibernation, monitor shut off time.
You never want anything to interfere with your updates because it can cause many problems. I know it takes a long time for the updates on a new install. Make a pot of coffee and hang in there.
3. Get a copy of your motherboard manual and keep it handy as long as you have that motherboard.
I have been using Windows Updates for my video card drivers for about a year now with no problems on two computers with different video cards.
