Troubleshoot & fix Device Driver Problems in Windows 10


  1. I find that you NEVER want to install hardware driver updates from Windows Update.

    With the tech calls I receive related to driver issues, about 60% of the time Windows Update has installed an incompatible driver and a rollback is all that is needed to fix the issue. This even more prevalent with regards to audio drivers.

    Stick to the drivers from the manufacturer if possible.

  2. Yea, Windows Update is unbelievable to automaticvally install needed drivers. Sometimes, you would be prompted that drivers can’t be installed rightly. I know a totally free program called DriveTheLife that can automatically ftind and install suitable drivers for your hardware.

    Besides, it offers you with free drivers backup and restore. Try it if needed:

  3. Updating the Windows update regularly is important. After noticing certain issues and problems, I update the drivers and the necessary updates to resolve the issues.

  4. Thanks a lot! the wrong realtek audio driver led to I can’t hear anything. I followed the instruction and uninstalled the latest driver by Driver Talent, then I installed a different version of realtek driver by it with one click. After reboot, yeah, I can hear. You are a genius.

  5. Thanks was starting to get realy annoyed when my computer would lock up (it wouldn’t restart I had to crash it) because of that dang message. Dear, Microsoft make windows just shut up and work! I’m stick of pop ups, balloons, and stupid assorted messages just do your thing and let me finish what I’m doing, god.

    On the positive side I’m glad windows 10 acts more like windows xp this has been the only annoyance so far. 🙂

  6. So, how do you update a driver when you can sign in to your windows? It only works in safe mode with no Internet. This is the second time my sons PC has froze upon the log in screen. I thought the first time i fixed it something had changed his Boot line up. This time it is not working.
