If you can roll back the driver, and it does not resolve the problem, try installing the updated version a second time. Sometimes drivers can get corrupted and cause conflicts. To re-install the driver, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start Menu
  2. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  3. Click Manage
  4. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  5. Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
  6. Right click the device
  7. Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
  8. Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  9. Do not restart your computer
  10. Install the latest driver for the device.

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user.
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. Click Hardware and Sound
  5. Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
  6. Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
  7. Right click the device
  8. Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
  9. Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  10. Do not restart your computer
  11. Install the latest driver for the device.
Normally, it is a good idea to restart your computer after a driver uninstall, but for network drivers, Windows will often install the driver again on restart and reject any driver updates. Windows has trouble with network drivers from time to time and tends to give messages that the driver is already up to date during updates. The above steps prevent this from happening.
