    Question INF Intel update issues

    Hi all, i was having lock up issues about a month ago. A clean install fixed the lockups but today i noticed something. In device manager there are 9 copies of Interrupt Controller that say they don't have a driver installed for them. The INF Intel update from Gigabytes site got rid of this but the lockups have returned! I know for certain the cause is the update because even at stock clocks the lock up happens. On top of that i did a sys restore to the point just before the update and the lockups have vanished (the 9 interrupt controllers are back though). So how can i install this update and not get the lockups? My system:

    Ga x58a ud5 mobo, i7 920@3.5GHz, 6GB Corsair Xms3, Nvidia GTX 260, Haf 932.

    Thanks in advanced!!!

    UPDATE: Tried manually installing the parts of the driver through each instance of the controllers in device manager, still locks up.

    Did you try the newest drivers from the Intel website? The drivers linked on the Gigabyte site are often outdated.

    Also I might add that when you do an update with the intel chipset utility you need to go into device manager and perform the update with the "have disk installation method". The instructions are in this link here -->>
    Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility — Have-disk installation instructions
    You do not say what version of windows you have installed. you do not give much info on your system specs??? Why???
    try the have disk method and I might add I have always found that format and reinstalls sometimes help. I like to use slipstreamed versions of windows to speed up install and add any Service packs in to the mix. What size of hard drive do you have installed?? Have you done any registry editing??

    K, i installed the newest INF update, for some reason the files would not extract though. I ran the exe through the cmd with the -a -a -p<myfolder> parameters like the site said. The installer ran and said it extracted the files successfully but i looked in the folder and it was empty, The path i used was C:/New Folder so there is no way it extracted the files somewhere else... I still tried the have disk install method and it couldn't find the drivers in the folder so i did it using the normal installer (I tried like three times extracting and the same thing happened every time). Ill post back if the lockups return...

    Thanks again, btw no registry editing other than some things to speed up menus and stuff like that, but there has not been any issues caused by that so far.

    well that was fast, yup those damn lockups are back again in all their annoying glory...Tried the extracting with the cmd from sysWOW64 same thing. it says it was extracted successfully but there is never anything where i tell it to extract to. I also tried a few different directories too just in case.

    I have 7-Zip installed on my w2k system.
    The following procedure extracted the INF files.

    1. I created a folder called INF-1025.
    2. infinst911autol.exe was downloaded to this directory.
    3. right click on the downloaded file.
    4. select "extract here."
    5. press ENTER

    I just noticed that my c:\Program Files\Intel\Infinst folder now has a new sub-folder Inf which now has two sub-folders, ALL and WIN7. I think that these two sub-folders were created when I initially ran the 1025 INF install program using the -a and -p flags, where the p flag had a different directory specified.

    Was this the actual exe or the 7ZIP archive? I can open 7zips with WIN RAR but when i right click on infinst911autol.exe there is not an extract here option, i have done this with the 7-Zip archive version of the INF update before though.

    UPDATE: Ive been looking around on google and apparently a realtek audio driver can cause all kinds of random lockups on x58 boards. I uninstalled this driver and ive been working on my pc with like 3 3ds maxes and 2 photoshops open and have prime 95 running too and its hasnt crashed...yet Keeping my fingers crossed! Im downloading the newest drivers as we speak but my internet connection is crap so it will pry be a while.
