I am running Windows 7 64-bit on an X58 motherboard. I thought I had correctly installed my motherboards chipset drivers, but when I right click on these highlighted items in device manager> select properties> driver tab> driver details I get a popup that says " no driver files are required or have been loaded for this device" Does this mean that some of the chipset drivers failed to install?

I think what that means is that those devices are more controlled by the system, than by Windows.

Basically, device drivers are there as a go-between between you, your operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac etc), and your hardware. This is especially true for input and output devices.

But since those things are more for the processing and transfer of information, they are more controlled by your CPU, motherboard or memory. That last bit is mostly guesswork, but I am certain that those devices do not need drivers to work.

So I don't think there is a problem there.
