Hi all

I am dual booting XP and Windows 8 64-bit and for some reason in device manager in both versions of windows i have a whole list of base system device drivers that are not installed. I have installed all the drivers off the Asus support CD and updated ones from the asus support website. I have tried everything and cant find a solution 😕 Any info appreciated.

there's a few topics related to this... download the latest Chipset drivers from intel...

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=816&DwnldID=20775&keyword=%22chipset%...

put that file in a folder and open a command prompt by right clicking in that folder...

in the command prompt dialogue type: infinst_autol.exe -overall

reboot and go to device manager then scan for hardware changes there just to be sure you got em all...

you will have to install MEI drivers to collapse the PCI simple communications controller, but it's not necessary if you do not use AISuite.

I tried what you said and installed those chipset drivers which was an (older) copy of the chipset drivers already installed, but my problem still remains. It is not the chipset drivers, as i mentioned in my first post iv installed all the drivers on the motherboard support CD and updated most of the drivers from the asus website. Thanks for your input though.

That looks like youve put in an ivy-e to your mainboard. The latest version of the chipset driver on the asus support page fpr the mainboard installed everything fine.

@hatross

I followed the steps you provided and I still have one Base System Device left. Are there additional steps?





I figured I'd add these images on the off chance they help.

You might want to try google Intel ME: Management Engine Driver, it could possibly be that and make sure you install the one for ur operating system. If that doesn't work you might want to put your asus support cd in and go to ASUS instAll button, then choose customize the installation of drivers and untick the top 2 option which is just to install some google apps.. and choose the drivers to install that are not already installed, make sure you don't overwrite the current intel chipset driver installed or you might have a bunch of base system devices again. Hope this helps if not you might need to wait for hatross to get back to you.
