    Asus M32BC-01 Chipset Driver Question


    Chipset drivers outdated on Asus site, latest video drivers installed, system running perfectly fine from what I can tell now...If I did install the outdated chipset drivers, would I have issues when I update video drivers in the future? Normally use Display driver uninstaller to completely clean out AMD video drivers, then install new version


    System reset did fix the game issue I was having though

    Best to keep all drivers updated to latest available.

    IMHO, go with the stock Windows supplied drivers, unless something doesn't work. The Windows update drivers may well be newer than what is listed on the ASUS site for your model PC. I have an M2N68-AM SE2 and an M4N68T-M V2 running Windows 10 with just the Windows update supplied drivers. Everything works without issues. There is next to nothing available from ASUS for Windows 8 let alone Windows 10 for either motherboard. There are newer drivers, they just aren't listed in the downloads section for my motherboards. You might actually cause problems using older drivers especially if they are Windows 8 drivers or earlier. Just have a look in device manager for any yellow ! or red X's.

    Windows does not supply chipset drivers. Those are manufacturer specific. Some vendors will post updated chipset drivers for their products on their support site. If not then go to Intel or AMD for the correct ones for your board.

    Windows does supply chip-set drivers. It would be impossible to install it without them. The OEM's (Intel, AMD, NVidia) submit drivers to Microsoft for inclusion in the install media, and for download via Windows update. They won't be specific modified drivers that the OEM manufacturer, ASUS, HP, Dell, supply for your make and model, but they are all that is needed to install Windows. In most cases it is all you need.

    Computer manufacturers supply Chipset drivers on their web page for their models. This is usually the drivers that shipped with the computer at the time. Occasionally they may update these drivers on their web page.
    The most recent drivers will probably come thru Windows Update. Installing the drivers on the manufactures page will usually not affect the computer, and is always a safe bet. If you do not have any Yellow flags in the Device Manager, then you do not need to update any drivers.
