Title says it all. Does installing graphic card drivers for specific video card, replace the chipset drivers that you install for your motherboard? My chipset drivers for my motherboard look alot like the setup for my graphics card.

It should not. the Chipset drivers are the drivers needed to operating the SouthBridge / Norhtbridge chips on the motherboard. These chips are in charge of controlling the native SATA 6Gb/s ports, USB 3.0, Expansion slots (i.e. PCI-Express X16), USB 2.0 headers, etc.

We can help you better if you could give us more information about your system -- The make (brand) and model of your motherboard would help GREATLY.
