    Default Installing new chipset drivers

    I know there aren't any new chipset drivers for my EX38-DS4 board at this time, but I would still like to know how to install new drivers if/when they become available. I looked in Uninstall section of my Vista Ultimate, but no listing for Gigabyte drivers that I could find.

    It is a Intel driver, and all you do is install over the old ones >>>
    Download Software, Drivers and Utilities Filters

    There is no uninstall method for this as there is MANY drivers it updates, you will find Intel a Version behind Gigabyte, I think there is a reason for this and Always Install from Intel

    Kind of strange that Intel has latest as 8.3.1.1009 from 9/07 and on Gigabyte CD/website it's 8.3.1.1011

    I installed the one from Gigabyte's CD, which is same one on their site dated 2-27-08.

    I guess Intel hasn't updated their site, kind of slow like their processors.

    YA, or my thoughts. The newer one had issues so they posted the older one back up. A large source like that is not usually so far behind

    Bigger doesn't always mean better! Are you suggesting Gigabyte is putting up chipset drivers known to have issues?

    Yeap, I am

    I actually think just the intel site is not updated the version # posted. I installed it a week or two ago and it is actually version # 8.4.0.1018 >>>


    Always get from the source
