Hi,

Configuration:

"Intel Driver and Support Assistant" tells me that I do not need any update.

If I use Ccleaner or Driver Booster both tell me to update many Intel drivers:

My question is the subect of this post: do I need to update intel 200 Series Chipsets (whithout risk)?

Thanks for helping.

Best regards

If Windows Update has no updates for you, then leave well-enough alone.  Also, my opinion only, ccleaner and driver booster are garbage.   Do want you want, but I would never dump that trash on my machine.

 

Ands, if you do want to update the chipset, you get the chipset inf from ASUS for your board.   However, this is typically installed immediately after the OS is installed.   To late for that.

Hi,

I've uninstalled several not useful app.

Yesterday one BSOD.

Today none (for the moment).

It's not easy to know where is the problem, cause BSODs seem to be random...

I think this post can be closed.

Thanks.
