How to Find the Right Drivers 4

When you see this article, I think you are worried about the drivers. Maybe you have lost your driver CD. I would be happy to help you be looking for the drivers.  In general, there are a few which must be installed on most PC’s like: the motherboard chipset, grpahic card driver, audio drivers, and lan drivers. There are a number of ways to try and locate the correct drivers, Follow the methods, you will find your driver simply.

For very well known notebook brands, it should be much easier. The only thing to do is see the correct model number on your notebook, then go to the official site of your notebook brand and find the drivers there. Now, you don’t have to go to the website of the notebook, you just search the drivers on this But notebook drivers can be a pain to find for some not very well known notebook brands. Let’s try another method.

Now, let’s find the drivers for Windows Vista and Windows 7. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, you maybe can get the right drivers through the Windows Update.

1.Let us open start menu and select “Run.” Locate “Run” in the “Accessories” folder located on the start menu.
2.Type “devmgmt.msc” into the Run prompt. Click “OK” or press “Enter” to launch the Windows Device Manager.
3.Click “View” in the Device Manger menu bar and select the “View Devices by Type” option. The list of devices shown in the Device Manager will be grouped by device type, according to the connected device’s function.
4.Locate the device you would like to find the correct driver for. In many cases, the device may be listed as an Unknown Device, but Windows Update may still locate the correct driver. Otherwise, the device will be grouped by type. For example, graphics cards are located under “Display Adapters,” while sound devices will be found under “Sound, Video and Game Controllers.”
5.Right-click the device after locating it in the Device Manager. Select “Properties” from the menu. Click the “Driver” tab.
6.Click “Update Driver.” In the Update Driver Software prompt, choose “Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software.” Windows Update will locate the correct driver for your device.

I hope you find all the drivers, but there is no guarantee because not all device drivers are available in the Windows database.

If you are searching for drivers for an unbranded desktop PC or not very well known notebook brands, and you don’t know anything about your computer model, Don’t open your PC to see the exact model of your motherboard, graphic card or other PCI cards. Because since many of the PC assembling companies seal their PC cases with a warranty label and if that is your case, you could try and download a free diagnostic and hardware analitycs tool called: Driver Finder and see the exact models of your PC parts. Install it, and go throught the menu and look for information about your PC parts. You can check your motherboard model easy there.

Do you have not find the drivers?

At last, I hope you backup your drivers, or save this page.
