2] Install the Latest Driver from OEM
You can always install the latest driver from the OEM’s website if you get the Code 50 error for a specific hardware device. This will allow you to download the correct driver for your device without relying on Windows.
To download the latest driver, you first need to identify the specific hardware for which you wish to download the driver.
Then, you will need to visit the official website of the device’s manufacturer. For instance, if you are trying to update the driver of a GPU, then you can go to the manufacturer’s website and download the required driver.
The driver should be available under the support or driver section, so look for such on the manufacturer’s website and download drivers based on the model number and the version of your Windows OS.
Once the driver is downloaded, follow all the onscreen steps to install it on your system and see if it works.
You can run the hardware troubleshooters if both of these don’t work.
