Sequence to update MB drivers
Have just downloaded updated drivers for my P5N-E SLI 650i MB.
[b][color="#0000FF"]15.53_nforce_win7_32bit_international_whql[/color][/b]

Have already upgraded to WIN 7 OS.

Device Mgr shows no conflicts or problems, but now my front panel 'card reader' is dead.
Is there a posting/site that will walk me thru doing this update?

Intel Core 2 CPU 6400@2.13GHz
5 GB RAM ( 2-2GB Kingston sticks, not sure where the other GB is from???)
32-bit Windows 7 (home premium)
GeForce 9500GT 1GB graphics card

Your front panel card reader is usb? Win7 should have found it?

You can run the nvidia drivers, but they will probably detect only the ethernet drivers to install, since Win7 does a good job? Does device manager show your card reader? Or go to [start][computer] and see if the card reader shows up as multiple drives? If it does, open the case, unplug the cable to the mobo (system ON), wait a few seconds, then plug it in. Windows should 'detect new hardware'.

If NO, have you been in the case lately? The cable might be pulled out? Try reseating it? If still no luck, go into the bios and look for 'legacy USB' and turn it on...

This is really strange? My Win7 installation was the smoothest, most trouble-free since I began using Windows back in Win3.0 days!

One thing I've noticed is that Win7 likes LOTS of restarts to finish installing everything? If you've restarted it 6-8 times since installing Win7, it should have done it?

Thanks, I will give the BIOS a look.
I noticed after the upgrade the MB driver was a 2006 Microsoft driver. Just ran the update program, still no card reader.
How will the card reader show up in the device manager?
