"The driver was easy to handle in installing and I felt comfortable all the way (I mean user interface) for the setup somehow at the end of the installation I realized that was not the correct version I intended to pick. Now I have to search again for the correct version I needed.

Thanks a lot for the support.

  1. Locate the device and model that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
