Hi Guys,

I wanted to install newest drivers (on clean Win8 installation), but after reboot i noticed year 2006 driver date.

Here are some screens:



Only 2012 year date i see for USB Host controller:


I tried uninstalling/reinstalling,. did pretty much all i got on mind but 2006 was still there :)

Can you confirm if this is ok? Or something is messed up?

Intel Chipset Drivers v9.4.0.1017 (http://downloadmirror.intel.com/22586/eng/INF_allOS_9.4.0.1017_PV.exe)

If you have the Intel Chipset Software previously installed, then simply running the new Setup.exe file will not work, here is what you need to do.

For ease of typing, I rename the setup.exe file to chip.exe just to make it easier in DOS

1) Download the latest Intel Chipset Drivers, if it was an *.exe file, rename it to chip.exe or setup.exe; if it was a zip file, then extract the files to a folder, then rename the folder to chip (the name you choose does not matter, but this is what is used in this example)

2) Copy that folder to the root of your C Partition

3) Press the START MENU button > All Programs > Accessories > then right click on Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator

4) In the Command Prompt, type:

- cd\ to back to the ROOT of c:
- cd chip to go into the folder Chip
- setup.exe -overall then hit ENTER


Now the drivers will be installed completely because if you don't follow this method, then as soon as you run the setup regularly and hit next, you will notice that the installation completed and nothing happened.

NOTE: You MUST re-install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Drivers after you install the Intel Chipset Drivers because the Intel Chipset Drivers usually install their own AHCI Controller so you have to reinstall the IRST Drivers again as they are better.

All went fine - THANK!!!
I also reinstalled Intel Rapid Storage Technology Drivers

Question - How to make sure that all drivers r up to date- I run that Driver Genius - but looks like that messed up Chipset drivers at first for me.
