Hello Lee, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Open Device Manager, right click the device you want to update, choose Properties > Driver > Update Driver, choose Browse my computer for driver software. Choose the folder you downloaded and saved, Windows should now install you drivers.

Good luck.

Thank you Kari

I did the process as you said and it worked fine but it says windows has determined that my driver software is up to date, im not sure if it is the latest thats installed already?? I guess it is? but the one I downloaded was meant to be the latest? Is there anyway of checking or would it have installed it if it was?
