I reformatted the HDD on my pre-built Acer Predator G5900 (think that was the model). I had to download the Realtek Lan drivers from the Acer site to get internet access. On the site were two other drivers which I haven't yet installed and am not sure if I need:


  • AHCI_Intel_9.5.0.1037_W7x64_A
  • Chipset_Intel_9.1.1.1020_W7x64_A

I've been running Win7 without these drivers for a couple of weeks now, but I do feel that performance is slightly lower than it was before, though I could be imagining it. Are these safe to install like any other driver (gfx drivers for example), and would they have any benefit?

Thanks.

when u reload windows you always load the drivers from the mfr......... in your case u would load the chipset drivers (your version of win' 7 32 or 64 bit???) then reboot....... then u would load lan,sound and onboard vga drivers .......... reboot between each

You feel windows goes slower because the video driver is not installed. Windows uses its own version of the video driver which is not fully optimized for hardware acceleration. If those drivers are the ones for windows 7 then don't hesitate and install them. The benefit would be full performance and less work for the CPU.
