    As you may know, the download page for the Vision 3D series does not have any Windows 8 drivers, or a Windows 8 compatibility label.

    But, a Sandy Bridge CPU/chipset board is not that old at all, and should be able to run Windows 8. I have Windows 8 on a Sandy Bridge desktop PC, and even the latest drivers from Intel for Windows 8 include Sandy Bridge components in their support lists. Your board uses the i5-2520M CPU and HM65 chipset. You can get Windows 8 compatible drivers from Intel, at least for the Intel components.

    But the reason you are not getting direct Windows 8 support from ASRock might be for this reason:

    *Due to VGA driver limitation, 3D function only supports Windows® 7 / 7 64-bit / Vista™ / Vista™ 64-bit.

    But since you don't seem to care about the 3D capability the Windows 7 driver supports, you probably can find Windows 8 drivers for the NVIDIA® GeForce GT540M Graphics chip, and definitely the Intel 3000 graphics. Are you interested in that?

    Sure...

    Intel drivers: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...g&keyword=HM65

    Once on that page, select Windows 8 from the Select an Operating System list. The main one you need is the Intel ME 8 software. The Intel AHCI driver should also be used with Windows 8. The multiple entries for the same driver are just newer/older versions, use the latest one.

    Intel Graphics driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...09%09%09%09%09

    When I tried to get the Nvidia driver, their download page wasn't working right, but just go here first: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

    Then either fill in the list from the drop down list for each category, or click the Automatic option.
