Why is the hell would AMD remove the chipset driver download from there website? (http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/chipset)

They are required for my motherboard, and i can no longer find them anywhere. Someone please help me.

 

The drivers i need are "USB Filter driver" "AMD SMBus Driver" "AMD SATA Controller Driver"

I might add that even if the manufacturer of your motherboard doesn't provide drivers, there's no need to update them ever, so you could always use what you used before.

Agreed, AMD platforms are not as dependent on drivers as nVidia nForce boards were and Intel boards are.

Huh??  Of course you need to upgrade a new motherboard series.  Ater a period of time when the motherboard has become stable you won't have to upgrade.

Go to the motherboard manufacturer for upgrades.

Go to the motherboard manufacturer for upgrades.

 

USB: Yes, you may need those if you have USB663. Windows can handle commonly used USB versions just fine.

Smbus: It only gives a device name, not realy functionality. A text string cannat be buggy.

SATA: Vista and later can handle it. I hope you're not using good old XP if you have a "new motherboard series". If you mean RAID, well, that's a different story and is not really a chipset driver. To be precise, SATA and USB aren't chipset drivers either.

What you say is true for the BIOS. If your board is unstable, check for an update regularly.

I'm really trying hard not being a grammar nazi, but this sentence just makes no sense. Unless drivers now started flashing the bios...
