Default updated BIOS-do I also need to update motherboard drivers?

Hi,

I am not sure which one is the correct subforum for my request, so pardon me if this is not the right place.

Just recently I updated my motherboard BIOS (Asus P6T Deluxe).
After this update I sporadically get a Windows (I'm using WinXPpro) message saying something like 'this USB device is a high speed UBS device but is connected to a slow speed USB port...', but I know for sure that all my USB ports are high speed USB 2 ports, and I also have the BIOS setting right (HiSpeed).
I was wondering if this has to do with drivers that need updating?

Also, today a friend advised me to always update the motherboard drivers after a BIOS update. I looked on the Asus website, but there are no motherboard drivers to be found.

Does anybody know where I cna find those drivers? And do those include an update for the USB ports?

Any help would be very much appreciated, since I'm not very knowledgeable in the PC field (yet).

Thanks,
Lars

Did you go here? I found drivers for that model.

I never had to update drivers after a BIOS flash.

Thank you.

Yes, I went to that exact site. I found the BIOS update file, but no motherboard drivers.

Look for it in the search. Type in "P6T Deluxe" That's how I got it.

Yes, did that, it gets me here:
http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us
But still, I can't see any motherboard drivers on the download page. Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Yes, I get the same screen, but where are motherboard drivers?

I expected a category called 'motherboard drivers'.....

Those ARE the drivers. It has all drivers and BIOS updates. Chipset, Audio, LAN, etc. Click on the + on left and there are the drivers.

Oh, OK, I thought there was like one file with all drivers.

Thanks, man !

So is the driver for the chipsets the one that would fix possible USB issues?

Yeah. Chipset controls all the I/O ports except video and sound. They have separate drivers, because they are made from different companies.
