I can confirm this on Win 7 X64. How can AMD miss that lol?
I'm on an Intel Chipset, and I have to manually update my bus drivers as well. I have to extract the Intel INF and manually search that file afterwards for the updated drivers.
So it's not just AMD.
I've come to believe it's windows automatically trying to say the stock driver is good enough, and no update is needed.
It hasn't been updating for me for years which possibly means it's not intended to as an update will likely not help anything if the current one is working.
I found an easier way of doing that: create a shortcut of the setup.exe then right click and go into it's properties then where it says target at the end of the "target" add -overall
from the readme:
Updates ALL INF drivers on all available devices
even if third party drivers are currently installed.
This flag works in Interactive Mode only.
Thanks a bunch for the guide! I've been holding onto these old Asus 7 series chipset drivers for so long just to be able to use the 3GIO driver from them.
Now I can finally delete that old 2009 crapola!
I just cleaned my 7 x64 install, and then installed the new 13.1 southbridge drivers (using the method thehippo described with the -overall argument via shortcut). Rebooted a couple of times to be sure. Then came here to do this...and there is no amdkmpfd folder. The PCI Bus driver is the default Microsoft driver still. I've got an Asrock 970 Extreme 4 board, AM3+ chipset (9 series north and southbridges). Can you run the 13.1 and see if these instructions follow with that new install package?
I tried install Intel drivers with the switch -overall but it didn't update th PCI bus...
13.1 Chipset Drivers don't include the PCI Bus driver; I'd imagine the 13.1 CCC driver package has it though. 13.2 (leaked beta) driver package has the PCI Bus driver with the following version and date:
The version and date is same as in v12.11...
But now I'm thinking about doesn't better for AMD chipset instal this driver and for Intel chipset Intel drivers?...
i cant update this driver because i don`t have update driver button at that tab ,why??
im in win 764 ultimate
oh sorry this is in system devices and i got this pci bus updated,so can i remove this 3gio filter from hidden devices??
thank u , like most of u , i was on the 2006 driver version , and now it's updating to 9.0.0 folowing this post ...
it's realy amasing why the AMD support does not fix that probleme ! it's dated from 2006 !! what they are doing !
anyway thank u again
yeh , by the way , the monitor plug-and-play look also in an old version (2006) , is there any trick to update it ?
Monitor driver can be updated if the manufacturer released drivers, although even then they might not be updated (Acer has an updated driver for my S201HL monitor that says 2010, but still uses the 2006 PnP monitor sys file)
What I found, the 3GIO driver is automatically installed on AMD chipset motherboard (BTW in PC is nVidia GC).
So I think that for Intel chipset it's useless...
First time I tried manually installing the drivers (from 13.3 Beta 3), my Windows 7 (32-bit) didn't boot up.
Second time (from 12.11 Beta 11), it worked fine..
Didn't try updating the PCI bus driver again (from 13.3 beta 3).
Thanks for this. I'm on Win 8 now but I'll go and check this out and try it once 13.3 is WHQL'd.
The Pci Bus driver has been updated.
The Pci Bus driver has been updated.
With the release of AMD Catalyst driver version 13.4, the Pci Bus driver has been updated.
The new version number is 184.108.40.206 and is dated 2/12/2013
Time to perform the manual update for this driver as described in the first pages of this thread.
I am aware of the thread that was just started asking how to perform the manual updating.
I believe this thread will be of help in answering those questions.
No idea if it's been mentioned yet or not, but you can just go find the Pci Bus inf in AMD's folder, right-click it it, and Install. Don't even have to open up Device Manager
It should prompt to restart if it installed. Might also notice the screen flash, or in rare cases, system lockup for a few seconds, which would also mean it installed.
nice, but how come it works on intel chip?
It shouldn't, unless you have some very weird Intel CPU AMD Chipset combo...
Its a windows thing, intel has it too, unless you manually update it.
But why all this worrying about PCI bus driver? Its for pci slots anyway..
By intel im stuck at default windows one - i use pci XFI sb atm and i would really want to update that too, but just cant -_-, good thing XFI HD is on the way which is a pcie card.
