Update drivers in Windows 10


Driver updates for Windows 10 and many devices (such as network adapters, monitors, printers, and video cards) are automatically downloaded and installed through Windows Update. 

  • It's likely you already have the most recent driver, but if you're having trouble with a device, you can try fixing it by updating or reinstalling the driver. Here's how:
    • Select Start , in Search , type Device Manager, and select it from the list of results.

    • Expand a category (like Monitors or Network Adapters) to find the name of your device, then right-click (or tap and hold) it, and select Update Driver. For example, to update a graphics card driver, expand the Display adapters category, right click your graphics card, and select Update Driver

    • Select Search automatically for updated driver software.

    • If Windows doesn't find a new driver, you can try looking for one on the device manufacturer's website and follow their instructions.

  • If these steps don't work, try reinstalling the driver: Open Device Manager, right-click (or tap and hold) the name of the device, and select Uninstall. Restart your PC, and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver. If that step didn't work, try the Windows Update Troubleshooter.
  • If you can't reach the desktop and see a blue, black, or blank screen, see Troubleshoot blue screen errors or Troubleshoot black or blank screen errors.
