Hard Disk Controller Drivers Download

A Hard Disk Controller Driver is software which enables communication between your internal hard disk (or drive) and your computer. Internal hard disks connect to the motherboard of your computer using an IDE interface or SATA interface. Once your new hard disk is installed correctly, your computer should recognize it automatically. Problems such as hard drive not found errors could be due to missing or corrupt Hard Disk Controller Drivers. Also, older operating systems such as Windows XP/2000 may not automatically recognize the new hard disk if the hardware is newer than the operating system.

How to Update Drivers to Fix Hard Disk Controller Problems Quickly & Easily

If you cannot find the right driver for your Hard Disk Controller, you can request the driver and we will find it for you. Or, try the automatic option instead.

Once you have downloaded the new driver, next you must remove the current driver if it is installed. On a Windows PC, you do this by using a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices attached to the PC, and the drivers associated with them.

How to Open Device Manager

  • In Windows 8.1 & Windows 10, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager

  • In Windows 8, swipe up from the bottom, or right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "All Apps" -> swipe or scroll right and choose "Control Panel" (under Windows System section) -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows Vista, click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager

  • In Windows XP, click Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager button

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

  2. Click the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Uninstall button and follow the instructions.

  4. To reinstall, you can either insert the disk you have from the manufacturer, or run the installer you have downloaded onto your computer and follow the instructions.

If you do not have the skill level or time to update your drivers manually, or are having difficulty finding the correct driver, you can do it automatically with the Hard Disk Controller Driver Update Utility.

This utility is an intelligent program which will automatically recognize your computer operating system and device. Then, it will find the correct drivers for it.
