Hi Guys!

My question is; I need to Re-install windows, so i am secure erasing my SSD tonight, after i re-install windows, do i then need to Re-install the BIOS driver CD that came with the motherboard?

The driver CD had all kinds of business on it, USB Drivers, Chipset Drivers, Intel Drivers etc.

If i dont need to re-install, but do anyway, will it cause any issues anyway?

Any thoughts, help would be appreciated greatly!!!! : ) Thank you so much in advance : )


Motherboard; Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Socket 1155 VGA DVI HDMI 7.1 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

Those aren't related to the firmware (BIOS). Those are Windows drivers and yes you will need to reinstall them. However, they are usually out of date so I recommend getting the latest ones from the manufacturers website and storing them on a USB stick.

Before reinstaling OS it better to download lates driver of the hardware as pinhedd said.

Anything inside of CD that came with mobo/gpu/etc are in the manufacturer web and it usually newer/better/updated one..

After reinstalled don't forget run windows update for stability/issue fix
