Windows 10: AMD Chipset Drivers and Windows 10

    AMD Chipset Drivers and Windows 10


    Recently, due to some hardware failures, I had to replace my motherboard. I also decided to reinstall Windows 10.

    When I went to install the chipset drivers (16.4.2 Crimson, 64-bit), the only things it wanted to install were graphics related.

    I can install these manually, but I'm not sure which drivers I should replace; it's simply been to long since I've had to do this and my memory isn't as sharp as it used to be. I have an MSI 990FXA Gaming motherboard, 8350 Processor, 16GB RAM, two WD HDDs (1TB boot and 3TB storage; prepping for eventually getting an SSD) and an MSI R9 270X Gaming 2GB video card running two monitors.

    Thanks for reading. Any help that can be given is appreciated.

    EDITED TO ADD: My reason for doing this is because of occasional periods of "dragging", where the system locks for about 5-7 seconds, then continues on like nothing happened.

    Your images indicate to me that everything is fine, just use the computer. There's no yellow symbols on the items shown which if there would indicate a problem. I have 2 Custom computers with AMD CPUs, 4-core and 3-core, running Win10 without problems.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I probably could have made this a lot easier if I hadn't left out my reasoning for checking this. I'm having occasional periods of "dragging", where the system locks for about 5-7 seconds, then continues on like nothing happened. There is no rhyme or reason I can ascertain as to what is causing it or what triggers it. It was my belief that not using the manufacturer's drivers would cause an issue. If my belief is not well founded, then I'll move on to trying something else. I have edited the original post to add my reason for asking.

    A short trip to MSI site should provide all the newest drivers you need, like for chipset, USB and network, AHCI drivers are included in Crimson. Realtec also has own drivers that are fresher than drivers on MS or MSI.

    Check IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers, if you have AMD SATA Controller driver listed there.
    When I was installing chipset drivers, it said OK, yet it did not install it and kept MS instead.

    Did that. Strangely enough, the site does not include downloads for those drivers. Only the network driver, sound driver and USB 3.1 driver.

    Driver listed is "Standard SATA AHCI Controller".
