Sometimes when we make a Resettlement SystemHappens that some drivers is not installed by default (usually drivers NICs) Or not found and installed via Windows Update. Also, when you connect a external device (Or terminal) to the computer WindowsThe system tries to install drivers for its correct functioning, but there are cases in which the drivers are not found. In such situations, the easiest would be to have a disc with drivers necessary for the system or external devices used, but if we do not provide these drivers, the next option is to search onlineon official pages but by hardware manufacturers requiring such drivers.

Most often, media devices containing the drivers needed for system configuration allow its installation in the form of setup. Also, each driver separately is usually a setup file you can install it as executable. But the fairest way to install drivers in Windows is:

  • in Search site from Start Menu or Start Screen enter device manager and give Enter
  • then right click on each component for which you have a driver (both those who already have drivers installed, and those who do not have drivers installed) and select Update Driver Software menu displayed


  • then select Browse my computer for driver software

update driver software

  • and navigate to the media device (or folder) that contains the drivers, then click on Next
