    Hi.
    I have a little problem.. The only place i found to download drivers for my hardware (bios, chipset, cpu...etc.etc) is www.packardbell.com but their drivers are from the stoneage.

    If i look at Intels supported downloads i dont find any of my drivers?!?!
    My computer is 2 years old and all the drivers i found is from middleage?! ;)

    The link below shows what i have in my computer + a Nvidia 7900 but it has a new driver from their homepage!!

    http://support.packardbell.com/se/item/index.php?m=home&pn=PB13301291

    And a view from Everest ( if i manage to get it in the post.. ;)

    View attachment Everest-view from overall-view.txt

    View attachment Everest-view from overclockingmode.txt



    If someone could help me would be so nice... Im so thankfull..

    Best regards
    //Andreas

    ps. Excuse my bad english... Not my 1st language as you probobly can see... ;);)

    the best driver isnt always the newest, but try SOFTPEDIA they have a lot of beta releases and brand new drivers the day they are out, a lot of them are never really publicized by the manufacturers either, which means nvidia could have come out with 3 or 4 drivers that havent made it to t heir website

    If you have Everest you should have a direct link to all the drivers download pages on each screen that you open. Unless the Everest that you have is not registered I guess, I have it complete and it tells you where to get every single driver and wich version of the driver do you have.

    Just follow the links and you'll be set.

    The links that everest gives me always sends me to a "pay for the driver download"
    site (like esupport) or it sends me to intel and it is, with my knowledge, d*mn hard to find supported drivers... Ex: My chipset is an Intel Grantsdale 915PM ´(But it says i915P on PB:s síte??? God i hate beeing an idiot-nooob!!! Have looked on Intels downloadsite for hours and every driver has a different ending compared to mine. (have tried them anyway but they dont match?)

    Veterangamer: My drivers between 4-7 years old. I dont really know but aint that a little bit to old?? Will try softpedia and look in this tread tonight after work... Thanks alot for your caring..

    Why are you wanting to replace the drivers??
    Is something not working properly?

    If everything works, I would not start messing with the BIOS and other drivers.
    I have seen too many pc's take a hard dump after somebody (a guy I work with) started messing with the bios and drivers.

    You have to agree that there must have been some progress in the tecnology for the last 5 - 10 years..?

    Updated drivers are revised originals to correct known problems.
    Installing the latest drivers is not necessarily going to make a difference to your system.
    If the original drivers work then stick with them

    You said your PC is only 2 years old and as BigBear stated, updating drivers will not make a difference UNLESS your having issues.

    The drivers from intel usually has and "i" at the beggining of the name to identify Intel that is it.
    I couldn't see the Everest pics that you posted so...

    Please specify one by one the hardware parts of your comp., and I'll give you the direct links for it... If I find any of it.

    Also get this utility from intel... it'll help you.... hxxp://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldId=11691&lang=eng
