Hi avismile10

Getting the drivers from the manufacturer's site is highly recommended for Notebook PCs.
For Desktop PCs, I'd say get them from the vendor site (or using this method here from our sister forum: PC Help Forum)

Hi,
Yea not sure where that link is supposed to go but it requires login :/

Either way 10tp has been known to over ride drivers installed by the user and replacing them through the windows update system,
Is 10tp loading drivers seems it would during install and constant updates if changed.

But normally you get them through the manufacture of the device if a more recent one exists.

Windows 10tp = 10 technical Preview,
The computer manufacture but 10tp will override those drivers via the windows update system most likely.
