    If you look on the left side of the page you'll see drivers and downloads, I think you'll find them there.

    does windows 8 need motherboard drivers?


    i met a computer solutions guy for getting the motherboard drivers for win8 ... but he said that win8 doesnt need any MB drivers..... they come pre-installed and get updated through windows updates...... is it true?....

    I don't know whoever told you that. You should always install the chipset drivers after any Windows Install. The hardware built into your motherboard depends on the chipset to make it go. The USB frequently will not function properly. Chipset drivers may also improve the performance of your IDE/SATA bus, improving data transfer speeds, systems power saving features. If not installed, sometimes can cause a system to hang on entering or exiting hibernation or sleep mode.

    Windows Updates does not install/update chipset drivers and without chipset drivers installed. You'll see "Unknown Device" with yellow exclamation mark in the Device Manager

    Hi topgundcp,

    Your advice is always "spot on"; however, I don't think the chipset drivers are "always" required anymore. I started to detail my reasons why but (fortunately) I found this article that pretty much says it for me:

    The Proper Way to Fully Install Intel Chipset Driver

    In summary, I haven't installed the Intel chipset drivers since my initial XP installation (circa 2005?) and I have not experienced any negative impact on Windows 7 and/or Windows 8 (thus far). Moreover, if the above article is accurate, you would have to "force" the installation of the inf files if you attempt to install them "after the fact" (eg, after the device drivers have been installed). So, case in point, my Windows 8 installation correctly identified and auto-installed all device drivers so installing the inf files (after the fact) would do me no good. Food for thought...

    Hello salim96,

    My first though (regarding your question) would be that the motherboard is common to both OSs in a dual boot situation. Now, with that said, I would strongly recommend that you "back up" and start again by fully identifying your system specs (including the name of the manufacturer/model number if prebuilt or by listing individual component IDs). Moreover, if prebuilt, you need to visit the manufacturer's website for updated Windows 8 drivers for the (unknown) LAN, Intel HD Graphics, and Sound Card Drivers. IMHO, I would go for the LAN driver first, then access Windows Update and apply all updates to current, and you might be delightfully surprised to find that all of your problems have been solved.
