I never let Windows update drivers any longer. I have learned the hard way, not to. Windows has more than once updated my drivers (audio & LAN) only to have them both completely stop working. I never use the Driver CD either. I always flash the latest BIOS, then set the BIOS up, then install windows and then the latest drivers from the board's web page.
Sometimes Windows will try to update drivers with older versions and sometimes with garbage drivers. Get the drivers designed specifically for the board on the board's web page.
