Never rely on Windows Update or Device Manager to update your drivers until you've exhausted your PC Mfr., Motherboard Mfr. or the software/hardware Mfr. resources. Win Update is well known to "backwards Update" your current drivers. I wouldn't recommend 3rd party driver updating software either, although they can be useful for giving you an idea of what may need updating. Which you would then do, manually, yourself. i.e. Hunt down the proper download locations.

Hi master91090, visit the device manufacturers website ,Or use windows update catalogue , But always use the manufacturers first , If the device is pre win7 then you may have to install the drivers in compatibility mode Compatibility Mode hope this has been of help to you
