I mean there are two different download choices, the driver or an Auto Installer. But if I'm going to do it myself don't I have to navigate and find the driver file and uninstall it before I install the new one?

As Rich said, download to your desktop. You can download the Auto installer. Go to device manger and uninstall the current driver. Then go to your desktop and install the new driver. Reboot and you are done.

I thought I reinstalled that driver properly, so you guys can tell me if I did or not as I just had two back to back crashes.

Type cmd in search.

In cmd, type driverquery. Check the driver out. Is it a current date?

It wasn't meant in a condescending way and I never resisted instruction. I'm just frustrated thinking that I fixed the problem and wasn't sure if I installed the driver properly. I was merely asking for confirmation as I didn't know how to properly check that info.

I was afraid that you would take it in the wrong way. I want to teach. Sorry if you misunderstood

I'm happy to learn but most importantly I'm thrilled getting help trying to fix this problem on a barely 1 year old system. Any new information stored in those two latest minidumps from today?
