Am I missing something here, I recently reformated a friends computer, downloaded the motherboard drivers, copied them to cd then loaded them to the newly formated hard drive.microwally said:On an MSI motherboard the model number is usually silk-screened between the second and third PCI slots (the white ones). Would you be able to take the side off your computer and tell us what it says there including the version number? Chrono16 is right, the app you downloaded will do you no good should you need to re-load drivers from a disk.
I may be wrong, but I believe all that stupidme downloaded was a little application that would send him via internet to a download and install area of the MSI website. My argument is that if he needed to re-install drivers before he had an internet connection established, a cd with basic tried and true drivers would be his best option. I have used that MSI live update in the past, and experience with it tells me that sometimes the older drivers work better with my set-ups. Stupidme's results may vary though.bigbear said:Am I missing something here, I recently reformated a friends computer, downloaded the motherboard drivers, copied them to cd then loaded them to the newly formated hard drive.
I had no problems why can't stupidme do the same thing?
Is this what you are looking forstupidme said:it is MS 6787 ver: 2... and yes I downloaded the updated drivers to c/program files and copied them to cd for future use. It seems I have created a bit of controversy here. If it is original drivers I need then I am s.o.l.. as I do not have them.. but if there is a place to get them then I will be happy to download them too. The journey continues.
Thanks for all the opinions..
