No DRAM or SMbus drivers found when running dxdiag.

hey guys, new to the community. My computer has been getting frequent BSODs and my games seem to crash a lot, so I was looking for some help. I've run memtest and chkdisk a thousand times, always passing on both without any errors, so I thought maybe my drivers were out of date. I downloaded the drivers for my motherboard (Asus P8z68-VLX), however when my DXdiag report shows there are no drivers for the DRAM controller or the SMBus controller.

Here is the extract from the report

Name: Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family SMBus Controller - 1C22
Device ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C22&SUBSYS_844D1043&REV_05\3&11583659&0&FB
Driver: n/a

Name: 2nd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) Processor Family DRAM Controller - 0100
Device ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0100&SUBSYS_844D1043&REV_09\3&11583659&0&00
Driver: n/a


So my questions are, where can I get drivers for these and will this help stop the bsods and game crashes?

BSOD errors include
memory_management
Service exception
page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

Go to Intel's web site and look for their Chipset Software Installation Utility. That should install the drivers you need.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that fixing the BSODs, though. Take a look at your motherboard's settings and make sure your memory settings are correct.
