Motherboard Driver

What is a Motherboard Driver?

Motherboard is the most important part in your computer that controls nearly all the computer functions. Motherboard driver is a piece of software interfaces between the hardware motherboard and the system software.

Is It Necessary to Update Motherboard Driver?

Since the motherboard is the core component of your computer which controls the entire system and functionality, it is quite important to keep its driver in perfect status and ensure its features in top performance. Thus, checking for motherboard status and updating motherboard driver to the latest is likewise important. Note that always backup the drivers before updating. In case something unexpected happens or the latest driver is not compatible with your device, you can restore drivers from the backup.

Most of the  Motherboard driver issues or errors occur when the required driver is missing, corrupted or outdated.

Is There an Easy and Time-saving Way to Update/Install Motherboard Driver?

Originally, to update motherboard drivers, you must know the manufacturer and model of the motherboard. Then do a time-consuming search for the correct driver download. But now you have better and easier way, that is, use an automatic driver updater and finder utility. The recommended one is DriveTheLife, a free and easy-to-use driver updater tool which will help to scan missing, outdated or broken drivers automatically, download and install driver updates with one click, repair driver problems effortlessly, backup drivers for free, restore drivers from backup, remove unwanted drivers easily. Try it out if needed. It is totally free and no ads, no fuss! 

How to Fix/Troubleshoot Motherboard Driver Problems?

In case there is something wrong with your motherboard driver, your computer won't work properly. However, you have below ways to fix it.

1. Roll Back Motherboard Driver to the Previous Version

Rollback driver is an inbuilt function in Windows Device Managers, which allows you to troubleshoot common driver-related errors. It is especially helpful when there is driver related problems after driver updated. Below is the simple steps to operate the driver roll back. I am using Windows 7, so the steps are taking Windows 7 as the example.
  • Start > Input Device Manager > Press Enter
  • In Device Manager, locate and double click your motherboard.
It should be under System devices and named SMBus xxx, or NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management, NVIDIA nForce System Management Controller, or VIA Standard Host Bridge, VIA I/O APIC Interrupt Controller or others.

  • In the Property window, click the Driver tab.
  • You will find the option of Roll Back Driver. If it is not available to roll back this driver, the button will be grayed out.

2. Use Driver Finder Tool to Scan Your Computer and Fix the Problem Automatically

Honestly, it is not an efficient way to resolve driver problems through Device Manager. It is tedious to identify and solve driver issues manually. Besides, you need to be proficient with computer to troubleshoot driver problems yourself.

So here comes the tool I recommended before, DriveTheLife. Just try it and see whether it could clear the problems out. If no vain, another workaround with it is to uninstall the motherboard driver and rescan your computer, after that, DriveTheLife will find the missing motherboard driver and select a best-matched one to install.

How to Install Latest Graphics Drivers after Fresh Install of Windows - Easy and Automatic

I am running a new computer build with the following specs:
Intel i7 4770
8gb corsair vengeance RAM (2 cards)
Asrock z87 Extreme3 Motherboard
Asus gtx 770 GPU
Xion 850W PSU

I was just trying to install the latest drivers after a fresh install of windows 8 for my GTX 770. It couldn't even finish installing before I got a Memory Management BSOD. Are any drivers more stable that I can use? I've heard nothing but bad things about all of the drivers available for my GPU.

Why Install Latest Display Card (GPU) Drivers?

There is always a debate on whether to install latest drivers or not. Personally, I would prefer the latest unless it is not compatible with the device. Reasons of installing latest graphics drivers are as follows:

  • For gamers, it is especially important to keep GPU driver up to date because the latest video drivers can resolve graphics issues/crashes and improve gaming experience.
  • Graphics driver is more often updated by manufactures, like once a month or more. So we should frequently check for graphics driver update to ensure we have the latest drivers installed.

How to Install the Latest Graphics Drivers - Keep GPU Drivers Up to Date

We have manual and automatic option to install the latest drivers.

For manual install, you need to determine the video card manufacture and its chipset manufacture (NVIDIA, Intel, AMD/ATI, etc.) and model number, write down the chipset manufacture which provides you with the driver. It is not that hard to identify the manufactures but it is never so easy. When determination is complete, visit manufacture's website and see whether there is newer driver for your device.

For automatic install, it is much easier! You don't need to determine the device manufacture and visit their website, you only need to download and install a driver finder and updater program, here totally free tool DriveTheLife is recommended and taken as the example to prove how easy it is to automatically update graphics drivers.

Step 1: Download and install DriveTheLife. >>DriveTheLife official site
Step 2: When the installation is done, it will start an automatic scan for all your drivers
Step 3: Go to Download board, if there are any drivers available to update, it will show you and let you update all with one click.

Update Drivers

Note that all the drivers provided by DriveTheLife is official or WHQL. We don't make drivers, we only move the drivers from official site or WHQL agent, gather ,well order and estimate them so that to provide you with the best matched drivers. 

Cool Tip: If you have serious display problems on Windows 8 and it is not the source of hardware, you might as well try downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7. Sometimes driver performs terribly on Windows 8 but perfectly on Windows 7.

How to Do a Driver Rollback - Restore Driver That isn't Working to Its Previous Version

We always believe a myth that the new is the better. And it is truly a principle that the new is the improvement of the old, in most cases. However, there is exception. The best example people may want to break this myth is when they encounter problems with their computer after updating a device driver.

Note that even sometimes driver update could bring unexpected accident, it does not mean all driver update is bad and we should reject all driver update. For example, for gamers, updating GPU driver is quite important to get new features, faster speed and better experience.

Tip: In order to revert to your driver, you are always suggested to backup drivers before updating

How Can I Download and Install Drivers without Internet - Drivers Offline Install

I have recently installed Windows 7, but just as in previous versions, I need a driver for wireless. The Ethernet cable on my laptop never worked, so that's not an option. When I open additional drivers, it will say can't detect drivers; need internet access. I'm not connected to a network nor have the driver so I can't use automatic search function either.

So what can I do? I'm new so if someone can explain in detail I would be grateful.

It is a big concern to offline download and install network drivers especially after a fresh install of system without a driver disc.
