    Device Manager can't update drivers from the Internet


    Hi, I just recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Win 7, with 2 GB Ram and 1.8 Ghz processor. Windows runs fine but my display isn't too goodGraphics card - ATI Mobility Radeon x2300. When I went to Device Manager, it shows Microsoft Basic Display Adapterand not my graphics card name.

    When I tried updating drivers, there's supposed to be an Internet update option "Windows will search your computer and the Internet to find...", but on my PC, it doesn't show the Internet update option.

    Can anyone suggest a fix that preferably doesn't involve reinstalling Windows?

    :)

    device manager drivers/update/fix help

    I need help with my drivers as they aren't showing up right in Device manager. I have double or triple entries in some of the categories; I have provided a link or file so that you can see what mine looks like. If anyone could direct me in the right path that would be awesome! I think the reason for my mouse studders/issues and also performance issues in the many games that I play is the reason behind these Drivers. Below is a image that I captured with gyazo that lists my devices.

    https://gyazo.com/825cc09e1f38ba409bd23bd839c8aa08 <- (Device manager and problems w drivers)

    -BenQ XL2420Z 144hz
    -Logitech G403 Prodigy
    -Corsair Vengeance K95

    -When I fix the drivers that I need will the grayed out devices fix themselves/disappear in Device manager? Also, if/when I get my drivers all squared away and updated.. let's say I have some grayed out devices that are still in those sections.. is it OK to uninstall those or not?

    -I also don't have any idea what those Microsoft streaming devices in Sound are!??! Could it be something I need to turn off in BIOS or?

    -Lastly, what's the deal with the WAN Miniports?


    Thank-you!

  3. Device Manager Un-Hiding Hidden Devices

    When you connect a plug and play device, Windows Plug and Play manager detects it, finds and installs the driver. Device Manager lists the device with a solid icon.

    The driver is only removed when you uninstall the device, not simply by disconnecting the device. When the device is disconnected, its driver is still installed. By default, Device Manager only displays connected devices. When you show hidden devices, note the Bluetooth icon you see is semi-transparent (not opaque). That indicates a "non-present" device. Sometimes also called a "ghost" device. The driver is still installed but the device is not currently detected (i.e. not connected).

    Device can be disconnected when
    • Device unplugged (e.g. removing a USB device)
    • Turning a device OFF
    • Disabling the device in BIOS (then windows won't detect it) or
    • Device failure

    So
    • Check BIOS as suggested
    • Check board connections
    • Can b/t be turned off by a switch? or keyboard combination?
    Also possible the b/t h/w failed

  4. Device Manager can't update drivers from the Internet

    Why does driver update software disagree with device manager?

    On a whim, I installed IObit's driver updater. to my surprise. Instead of blindly following its suggestions, I used the device manager to update the drivers. Yet some updates that IObit's software listed were not found by device manager. Why is this?
