Those drivers should be included in a chipset driver you would get from intel. I've never had a problem tracking down an intel driver directly at their site.

Thanks guys the software didn't help driveguide.com

I went directly to intel downloaded a chipset driver but it didn't do the trick intel states "We manufacture the device but we don't create the drivers for it" "blah blah" "Go to microsoft for the driver you meed

Just out of curiosity how did you identify the devices?

You will not be able to find the individual driver, your looking for the chipset driver for your motherboard. Intel didn't help you because its most likely not an Intel board. Its just a motherboard with intel components.

You can use a free software prog such as EVEREST Home Edition. The prog should for example say motherboard model and manufactorer is "Asus..." You would then go to Asus website or whichever manufactorer it shows and lookup the chipset driver there.

So are you saying driveragent did not have the drivers?

Driver agent could not find the necessary drivers its an unknown device. I used everest and that pointed me to intel.com I again downloaded the chipset driver and with no luck. The motherboard manufacture is dell. The system is a dell inspiron 1100. I used unknown devices beta to identify these devices thanks again guys for all the help. I'm still researching the issue and trying to find drivers

Not sure if this will help, but using a dedicated DVD/CD with the majority of chipset, audio, video, etc etc all packed in one place does make it a lot easier to hunt down drivers.

Since I'm new to the board and can't post URL's you'll have to just google to it. driverpacks dot net... wheee

Basically you unpack the 7zip files in a dir and burn it to a DVD or using another method for a CD version.

Hope it helps.

Why not just go to the Dell website and put in the service tag number for all the available drivers?

Actually, I bleieved there is no unique web site comes with all drivers we needed.

Probably need to search for more options.

Some web like windrivers.com or driverguide.com may get you the driver you need, but not all the time, try more search, good luck!
