How to get Windows 7 drivers for your motherboard

What to do when your motherboard won't recognise Win7

QUESTION I recently built a PC around an Intel Core i7 950 processor, 3GB of RAM and an Asus Rampage II Extreme motherboard. But the motherboard refuses to recognise Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Tony Hall

HELPROOM ANSWER Windows 7 is still relatively new and some older motherboards may recognise earlier versions of Windows only. You should
be able to find the correct drivers here, however.

Under General Download, choose Motherboard from the 'Select Product' drop-down menu, LGA1366 for 'Select Series' and Rampage II Extreme for 'Select Models', then click Search. In the pop-up window choose Windows 7 64bit to see a list of drivers available for download.
