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.

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 7, click Start -> Control Panel -> 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

How to Install drivers using Device Manager

The hard disk controller driver should typically be located under a category called "Disk drives" or "Storage controllers."

  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.

  5. If you want to just update the driver instead of removing it, you can click the Update Driver button on the Properties window, and follow the instructions.

Option 2: Update drivers automatically

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. There is no need to know which specific operating system you have, and there is no risk of downloading and installing the wrong driver. Automatic driver updates eliminate mistakes when installing or updating drivers.

You can scan for driver updates automatically with the FREE version of the software, and complete all necessary driver updates with the premium version.

  1. Try the Hard Disk Controller Driver Update Utility.

  2. Run the driver update utility and click the green Scan Now button. Your system will be scanned and automatically detect any problem drivers.

  3. Click the Update Driver button next to the out-of-date or missing driver. The correct version will be downloaded and installed automatically. Or, you can click the Update Your Drivers Now button to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
