AMD Chipset fail install

When I went from AMD to Nvidia video card, I uninstall all AMD drivers and DriverSweeper’d it. I’m thinking the chipset drivers were removed also. then windows just installed generic or incorrect versions. Now you might say I can just get that off the amd website catalyst package. I downloaded the chipset drivers listed for my OS. When you run install manager, it DOES NOT show the drivers but if you go the folder it extracted onto your C: drive, the drivers are there. I know that you can update drivers via device manager but I dont know how to do it and also the names are different because they are using windows7 drivers. This is probably why the install manager doesnt show the chipset drivers. Because by using Microsoft Win7 drivers, they are under a different name in the device driver. I read of one instance where the win7 driver for PCI bus in the device manager had a driver from microsoft was like version 6 – Jul 2006. But when he manually updated/delete previous driver using the 13.4 catalyst version, it became Pci bus, notice the case difference, and the version was 8 – Nov 2012.
Please help me install my chipset drivers.

Win7 x64
Asus mobo – m4a785-m (785G/SB700 chipset)
The chipset driver file i am using is from here:

thank you

Edit: I uninstall my chipset drivers during Amd video card uninstall. Their remove utility removes anything amd. My chipset is running on Windows provided drivers from 2006.

So now, i want to install the proper chipset drivers. But I cannot because my chipset drivers, whether by asus or amd, or whatever version provided by them will ALWAYS come in a Catalyst Install Managed package. It is a driver run install package that utilizes some driver to detect your system devices. It cannot detect my chipset and therefore will not install chipset drivers on my comp. But i bought that exact model of motherboard, i look at cpu id and know for a fact I have the chipset i have and that these install packages should be installing my chipset drivers.

Where the drivers were extracted to there should be an exe file that starts a screen that makes amd software install the driver for you.

That exe file is the install manager i am referring to. You run it, it scans your system, gives you a list of what you can install from it, and there should be on that list the chipset drivers i need but they are not listed at all. What i suspect is that when the install manager scans the system for devices, the device names are not being recognized because it is using generic Microsoft drivers.

Hello, did you solve that problem? Because I have a 990fx/SB950 motherboard and my catalyst install manager does not list the chip set drivers! Please help me out!!
