hi guys

i have MA with integreted sound, LAN, Video etc.....

so i install everything from one source the MB product webpage

but after i do, i saw that apart the LAN, sound , video adapter , CPU drivers

everything is windows xp's (2001) default driver (everything in "devices manager")

so is it normal that most of them is windows default??

or it can be fixed?

In most such cases there are no updated drivers so no update is possible. Drivers do not cause problems because they are old. If a driver once worked well it will continue to do so for the life of the computer.

indeed it works fine.. i dont see "yellow question" mark's

but its just weired that my motherboard supllied driver's only updated 4 drivers

and the rest is windows xp 2001 , you cant update because there is no the name of the company of the driver only the device name

do you face the same situation?

"i have MA with integreted sound, LAN, Video etc....."

I don't know what "MA" is but the motherboard manufacturer's site doesn't always have the latest hardware drivers posted, especially if you have an older machine. Windows Update doesn't always have the latest drivers either. The only drivers you really need to be concerned about are the motherboard chipset, video, sound, LAN. The best thing to do is go to the individual hardware manufacturer's website to get the drivers.

For example, if your board is based on an nvidia chipset, go to the nvidia website...i you have an AMD/ATI video card, go to the AMD/ATI website...if you have Realtek LAN or Realtek sound, go to the Realtek website, etc.

If all is working leave it alone. You can't fix what's not broken.

You would be amazed at how many people update drivers and the driver is wrong .
They then spend their time uninstalling and reinstalling the old driver.
Or flash their bios and create a nice paper weight.
