Hi guys,


This is my first build so please forgive me if this question is rather stupid,


I've just installed the Vista Home Premium 32-bit with SP2 and I'd like to install & update drivers.


Now, the motherboard I'm using is Gigabyte 78GM-US2H with an onboard ATI 3200HD VGA


Here are the two things I just did,


#1. I just downloaded this "AMD chipset driver" off Gigabyte website (linked image here; http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3021/picture2oro.png ) and the file name is,

motherboard_driver_chipset_amd_7series-v2.0_vista32.exe


#2. I also downloaded this "Display Driver" off the AMD/ATI website (linked image here; http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/5463/picture1zmm.png ) and the file name is,

9-7_vista32_win7_32_dd


-------


Now, what I'd like to know is this,


Do I have to install these two? Again, if you see this image I linked ( http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3021/picture2oro.png ), it says under "AMD chipset driver" - includes chipset/sata raid/vga driver) - So, it means the AMD chipset driver is not only the chipset driver but also is a package that already contains the display driver? Does this mean that I don't need to install #2?


After installing the AMD chipset driver, is there any other way where I can check what version my integrated 3200HD is using? If the version is still old, can I install the "Display Driver" or #2? Wouldn't this crash the system because I overwrited the display driver?

I am currently using the 9.7 drivers from AMD/ATI with my HD3200.


Not sure what that 9.3 comment is about, but when I use the amd driver finder for hD3200, it leads me to 9.7, possibly 9.8 by now.


The gigabyte drivers are 9.8ish. I recommend trying these first, and you shouldn't need both, just one or the other.

The chipset driver and the graphics driver are two separate drivers for two separate chips. Get the most recent off both the chipset/motherboard and graphics manufacturer's websites (which it looks like you laready did). Install the chipset driver first, restart if necessary, then install the display driver.
