How to overwrite the chipset drivers
« on: February 08, 2013, 02:32:24 PM »
Occasionally there are instances where you will want to overwrite the chipset drivers.  Running the installer by itself doesn't always do it.  For example, if you reinstall the chipset software and the installer detects that the same version it is trying to install is the same version already on the machine, the installer won't install and just say it is finished.

To overwrite the chipset software no matter what, from the command line run this:

[name of installation file] -overide -overall

You have to spell override incorrectly for it to work.  So if the installer was called Setup.exe then the command would be:

Setup.exe -overide -overall

There might be a delay before the installation software shows up but when it does, that software will overwrite every chipset driver.
