What's my Chipset Version
Hello, pls. help me to find right chipset driver version.
In AIDA64 I have:
Chipset north/south bridge: nVIDIA MCP79
MoBo ID: ASUSTeK MCP79
IDE ATA /ATAPI Bus: NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller, it's MCP79/7A
I'm afraid I dlded wrong nForce driver, I guess this is nFORCE 900 series or not?

Sounds like you need ION chipset drivers

Are you sure??
How do I know wchich chipset driver should I install?
I'm quite confused about that since it's not clearly identified anywhere...I'm probably having installed wrong chipset driver now /wallbash.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wallbash:' />
Does DriverGenius safely recognize dowloaded driver? Since it looks like it again downloaded nForce driver for me...

DriverGenius? Never heard of it.

Just download the drivers for your OS from nvidia's site. Try installing the ION chipset package. Nothing bad will happen if it's not the correct one.

OK' I'm going to try.
My OS however doesnot recognize the driver and nothing downloads for ION/notebook/Chipset/Win7x64/English. Message: No downloads were found for your configuration.
Is there a manual pick of the driver?
I still think it's a nForce driver what I need, 'coz my chipset is MCP79/7A.
Anybody can help identify the right driver?

Try the ASUS website. Or check Windows update. I would think Windows 7 would automatically find the correct drivers for your hardware.

Yes at ASUS web I see the right driver, but it wasnot updated for ages (2009/09/07). So if I want updated I have to get it self from nVidia. This is the chipset driver name as it's identified on ASUS web: nVidia INF Update Driver for Win7 64 bit v15.46 (Chipset_nVidia_WIN7_64_1546.zip)

bundle contents:
Ethernet Driver (v73.10) WHQL
Network Management Tools (v73.13) "Sedona"
SATAIDE Driver (v11.1.0.30) WHQL
SATARAID Driver (v11.1.0.30) WHQL
RAIDTOOL Application (v11.1.0.30)
SMBUS Driver (v4.69) WHQL
SMU Driver (v1.71) WHQL
Installer (v7.53)

Any idea what's the updated bundle name at nvidia.com ?


/edit:
does MCP79 stand for nFORCE 790i SLI ?

the MCP79 is most definitely an ION platform.

But if I search for ION driver, I get nothing:

[img]http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/8696/wwwnvidiacomdownloadind.png[/img]

If I search ION betas, I get a link to my GPU driver, not chipset.
This is cumbersome, if ASUS offered a standalone chipset driver in the past, I assume there must be a separate chipset driver on nVIDIA site too /confused.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':confused:' />

I really would appreciate if anybody found what chipset model is the ASUS bundle related to, and where is to find the nVIDIA.com counterpart.
The old ASUS driver can download from [url="http://www.mediafire.com/?auveta4io8xkbcj"]here[/url]

NVIDIA's notebook support on their website has always been a bit lacking. Instead, they mostly work with OEM to provide the correct drivers for hardware.

The desktop ION chipset package is the following version:

[quote]Version:
15.51 WHQL

Release Date:
2009.10.05

Ethernet Driver (v73.14) WHQL
Network Management Tools (v73.16) "Sedona"
SATAIDE Driver (v11.1.0.33) WHQL
SATARAID Driver (v11.1.0.33) WHQL
RAIDTOOL Application (v11.1.0.30)
SMBUS Driver (v4.74) WHQL
SMU Driver (v1.71) WHQL
Installer (v7.57)
Audio Driver (v1.00.00.59)[/quote]

As you can see, they are somewhat newer, but only by a month.

If you aren't experiencing any problems with your notebook, I would not worry about updating the drivers.
