Please post model number of motherboard, and if you know the 'missing' drivers, then post the parts that need drivers.
usually manf's websites will have all the basic drivers for your board though along with any revisions

hi moto

its GA-MA 785GT UD3H

i dont see the "missing driver" sign

i wondered if i need another drivers from the manufactres of the chip, chipset, devices etc..... that buillt on the MB?? or if the motherboard's page download includes all the drivers for everything on the MB..

my MB is GA-MA 785GT-UD3H ATi chipset

when i had older with nvidia chipset i remember i had controllers drivers ..and few others which i dont think are in current modle

I would just install the drivers from the CD that came with the board and then update the ones you want to, from the Gigabyte web site.

You can probably update most all of those drivers from the Gigabyte web site. I keep most all my drivers up to date including the BIOS. The non-Gigabyte drivers can be updated too. You might have to search for them on-line. I recently updated my SATA/RAID card driver.

You should be able to see the manufacture of the various devices in "device manager." Highlight a device and click on "properties." You can even update the drivers thru device manager. I prefer to download the drivers and update manually.

I have vista home premium 64-bit and most of my devices have a manufacturer listed, plus the type, model and so on. Under the driver tab there is the manufacturer provider of the driver and more. Plus an update option too.

guess i better update my OS rather than trying to update driver first

You are probably OK. I bet your drivers, except maybe the gigabyte drivers and any extra devices you've added are up to date. When I use the update option in device manager, I get a message that says "the best driver software for your device is already installed." That's from searching on-line too.
