    Hi, fellas.
    I've enough reasons to update my chipset drivers, but my problem is that I've no idea which drivers to download from nVidia's homepage.
    I used Everest Ultimate (used to be Aida32) to find out which motherboard/chipset I've got in my ASUS laptop (which, btw, is an X70IO series notebook, but the model says K70IO... confusing the hell out of me), and it tells me it's a mcp79/7a card. I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be looking for an nForce driver, but which one? mcp79 does not appear on nVidia's site.
    Also, the driver from ASUS's webpage is the one I'm running atm, but I'm thinking nVidia might have a newer one for me.
    If you've an idea what I should be looking for, please don't hesitate to reply :)

    Thanks in advance,
    Iluvhir

    The best thing to do is use Nvidia's auto detect option on the download page . If there is an updated driver availiable it will let you know. To be honest the fact Asus are not ogfering an updated driver tells me there probably isnt one availiable right now. What are your reasons for updating chipset drivers ? Maybe your problems can be fixed another way.......

    As ive already said, if the Nvidia auto detect tool is'nt coming up with any new drivers then i think you are stuck for now. All you can do is keep checking the Nvidia and Asus pages for new drivers. Its that good old story of a lack support from manufacturers.
