  1. Which necessary drivers to install from optional updates?


    Usually when I clean install Windows 10, I manually install graphics drivers which I download from nvidia and intel, and I just let windows updates install the rest of the necessary drivers. Version 20H2 was different, however, as it put a lot of the drivers in the optional updates so I have to choose which ones to install. I have 5 exclamation points in device manager.

    Driver updates

    Hello GregVerstegen,

    My name is and I'm here to help you.

    Windows 10 should automatically install all the necessary drivers, but if that does not happen, you have two solutions.

    1. Install the necessary drivers from the Internet/official websites of computer companies such as ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, etc.
    2. Install the required drivers from Device Manager.

    How to install drivers from Device Manager?

    Step 1: Open Dev. Manager. Click start (WIN button) and type Device Manager.

    Step 2: Choose a section of the component parts. Ex: Keyboards, Sound Video and Game Controllers etc.

    Step 3: Up, you have the option "Action". Click on it. Hit "Add Legacy Hardware". Click next. First, I suggest you choose the first option ("Search for and install the hardware automatically"). If it doesn't work, than choose the second
    option ("Install the hardware that I manually select from a list"). Click next. There, you have a list of all existing drivers.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Which necessary drivers to install from optional updates? :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
