Intel Chipset Drivers Won't Install

I am trying to install an update to my x79 chipset drivers but everytime I run the exe it tells me drivers successfully installed though when I check in device manager they are still the old version and I do not get the installation screen (bars loading and progress) before it went to successfully installed. Anyone know what I should do to get it to work. Firewall was disabled when I tried.

  1. Hi,

    The best thing to do is go on the mobo manifacturer website and install the lastest one from there, maybe the update won't work with you mobo directly from intel.

  3. And what devices have you checked in Device Manager for drivers updates?

    Still showing 1018 when it should say 1025. Also the update does not work in device manager it says it is up to date when it is not thats why I was trying to manually install the chipset drivers from my mobo support site.
  5. The Intel® Chipset Device Software installs the Windows* INF files. An INF is a text file that provides the operating system with information about a piece of hardware on the system. In the case of the current Intel Chipset Device Software, that information is primarily the product name for the piece of hardware. This allows the operating system to show the correct name for that piece of hardware in Device Manager.

    So what should I do to get it to work properly?
  7. Doesn't the system work properly? What are the issues? Are there items in Device manager with a yellow mark?
