Check your device manager. Devices missing drivers will be listed under "Other devices". Items with a yellow exclamation mark next to them need updated drivers or are misconfigured drivers.

Install the drivers for them. Most of the ones listed under "other devices" are most likely from not having your chipset drivers installed. You did install all the drivers that came with the motherboard, right?

Can i install it from the Setup.exe after extracting the zip file ? i ask cuz i see many ways to install the INF driver and i don't want to make any mistakes and now i run Win 8 64


[Edited]
I installed it from Setup.exe and i i'm not sure if everything is alright ??? !! i just want to know what exactly drivers should i install ?

And plz i want to know if a driver is important or not and what it does before install it ?

Windows show me a message said :

Download and install the driver for your chipset
Your chipset is missing a driver.

The model name of your chipset is Intel Smart Connect Technology.

and by the way how can i update any driver in the future ?

Notice that now i can see in Device manager just one item with a yellow exclamation instead of two items after installing the INF driver

Thanks for your patience

All the drivers you'll need for your motherboard are on the link you provided in the first post. In fact, I can see the Intel Smart Connect driver ver:4.2.40.2439 that your system says is missing. Download and install it. Also, if a program comes with a setup.exe file, that is normally what you want to run to begin the install.
