Hi everyone,

I have a kind of old system with a asrock p55 pro and a intel i5 760. I'm currently running windows 7 but I'm thinking of upgrading to windows 8.1. Do you think there will be a problem for me with the drivers for the motherboard or are there standard drivers that can be used? Asrock has not updated the driver site for my mobo since 2010.

Thanks!

it will be difficult to find the drivers...but not impossible.

i suggest you collect the drivers before you upgrade.

Ok. Where can I search for them? Do you mean non official drivers?

well driver pack solution is the only hope you have.

Ok, thanks again. I wanted to upgrade because I've heard that windows 8 has better performance in games. But you are right, it's not worth the risk.
