Sure, that is not a problem. Go into Device Manager, find the device you want to update, and right-click on it.

It is self-explanatory from there.

Good luck!

First off go to device manafer nd check and see what devices have a yellow triangle on them those you'll need to take care of first. then go to manufacturers site and look for those devices and download the latest driver avalibel. If vista or XP are only the ones use the correct bit of your OS system 32 or 64 then install in compatibility mode Vista or Xp like thishttp://www.sevenforums.com/ Welcome and lease post back. Fabe

but it say unknown manufacturer and the device type is other devices
the name is base system device
here is the explanation

The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.


To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
