Question

I just formatted my PC and i need some help finding the right drivers for my motherboard, it is a nVidia nForce 520LE from Gigabyte Technology, systemmodel M52L-S3.

I have been searching on nvidias homepage and other pages but i only find drivers for the 520, i need for 520LE. I don't think this is what i need because before i formatted i tried installing those drivers just to see what would happen and nothing weird happened but i did not have those drivers before.

I also don't find drivers for my network card. Which is a nForce Networking Controller (probably built into the motherboard) Help please.

I'm not sure if i should get the BIOS update though, they warned that 'flashing' BIOS is risky and not recommended if the current one works, so I don't know, what do you think?

Unless the update fixes a problem you are having, I would skip the BIOS updates. Risk /Reward ratio is too high
