the chipset software i installed was the most recent one avaliable on intel site. It might be that since my chipset Z77 is old, i should have not installed the recent chipset?

Their Intel Driver Update Utility doesnt update to it.


i didnt install the mobo support site, because I see them outdated outdated, instead of yet the new recent one lists my chipset as supported in release notes but generally the intel site doesn't see the inf file as made for my chipset and its update software would say its already upt to date. Ia sk because im getting BSODs from directx files so wondering if its related.

  • Z77 hasn't reached its end of support so Intel will continue to update its chipset drivers – Ramhound Feb 25 '17 at 22:08
  • But Intel's own update software doesn't list any updates for it and tells you with the old 2015 INF, it's already up to date. – Altoban Feb 26 '17 at 10:57
  • Why are you using update software, it takes a minute, to find the correct drivers on Intel's website – Ramhound Feb 26 '17 at 16:56
  • i havent, i just used it to see if i need to update or not. I dont know what the correct drivers are, since the newest ones dont list my hardware in the main page, but it supports it in the release notes. – Altoban Feb 26 '17 at 19:05
