    I'm gonna go out on a limb here mr hagimostafa and say why don't you try to (one) Go back a restore point or several to get beyond where you installed the drivers OR (two) find out where you can roll the drivers back. Usually there's a place where you can undo new driver installation to the original drivers. BUT, other's here may chime in differently and I'm only a wannabe geek!

    i do install lot's of apps addons and drivers daily and i'm not sure which one of them may cause the problem if i wanna restore or rollback!
    meanwhile in win8 restoring results in data loss! usually everything u have in download folder or downloaded in whole restored period will lost!

    I'm not sure if you are thinking I'm talking about the Windows 8 partial OS restore, that does result in some data loss. But I am talking about a simple restore point, recent. When I have problems I might look to a restore point in the last couple of days. That's not that much of a loss usually. Then as I begin to add back things that "might" have been the problem I check after each install, whether driver or application. Sometimes applications cause problems, sometimes drivers. But I know of no other way to eliminate or focus on the issue.

    Good luck, Jack ":-D

    You have a lot of package opening failures in that log, you may have done an update that was a beta. If you have your device drivers saved, try re-installing all drivers that have to do with your Chipset.

    I'd try a system restore to a date you knew it was all working, Using Drivermax probably caused it. I can't tell you specifically which ones because there are hundreds of package open failures. Usually that happens when a driver is not made for the OS you are trying to use it in. But you can still get it in, ytou have to add it manually. That's what I did with the HDMI Audio drivers for a Gateway Laptop I had - I downloaded the Vista drivers and took them out of the EXE, then added them manually and it worked.

    If your system is old, like mine is you may have to do that for most of your main drivers.

    Most likely Drivermax downloaded some Drivers that were not specifically for your MB. So I'd do a system restore, and then stop using that.

    Actually they have it listed in Major Geeks and if it were bad, they wold not list it. But it probably sent you a few bad drivers. Windows 8 is pretty good at finding your exact drivers. If you have to, take out all of them and put them back in one by one starting with the ORIGINAL drivers for your Motherboard from the disk you got with the board. If it is an OEM puter, the original drivers will be in a folder named "HP" or 'Dell" or "Swdrivers"

    I just downloaded Drivermax and tried it - It's a racket. It told me I needed new drivers for my nVidia 8400 and I just INSTALLED the latest non-beta driver. Then it said the update files were unavailable.

    I'm quite sure any drivers you got with this are totally the wrong drivers for your system, I'm convinced of that now.
