How can i resolve this Installing/Updating a Driver Issue?

I've been working on the update of driver of my Laptop and it so happen that it does not complete the installation, for it keeps on saying that "windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it"

I want to look for this "ERROR" but i can't detect nor search for the real cause of this error

For Now I am just using my Laptop at its Least extent because I cant Maximize its usage for I don't have a Graphics Driver or (Display Driver) and Audio Driver

I am really worried for i cant solve this issue which i am presently encountering

Can anyone help me to get this thing Up?

First of all, if you had no video drivers installed, you would not be seeing a desktop -- so you MUST have some drivers in place already.

Second, why are you using the Computer Management to install drivers instead of Device Manager?

Go to each manufacturer and download the latest audio and video drivers for your devices to a Temp Folder. Turn OFF your antivirus and Spyware so it does not interfere with installation. Open the Audio drivers first (from your Temp folder) and right click on the .exe so you can use Run as Administrator. Follow instructions but do not Restart if asked. Do the same thing with the Nvidia (video) drivers and make sure you click on the Full or Clean installation and restart after everything is complete. It should restart and apply all the changes, it may even ask you to restart again after it finishes.

It may go to the Windows Desktop and not tell you that it is finishing installing so DO NOT touch it or launch any other application for a few minutes (5 mins should be more than enough), if it doesn't tell you to restart again, you can then go to Device Manager and check the dates of your drivers, it should say 2014 or at least 2013 and it should not say Microsoft as those are just the Generic Drivers windows mounts.
