  1. Year-Old Driver Tries to Install After Every Reboot


    For about a year now, a Synaptics Driver /has been installing through Windows Update nearly everyday, or every time Windows checked for Updates. It is the same driver every single time, dated 8/16/2017.

    At some point it began restarting my computer every night, but with the latest Insider Build it has just been waiting to restart. I have hidden the update, I have uninstalled the Synaptics device and its drivers, I have emptied/cleaned the software distribution folder numerous times. I'd just like to be rid of this.

    Failure to load detection driver

    mid driver install i shut down my system as i wasn't sure if the install manager had deleted the old driver or not.
    I rebooted in safe mode, downloaded 11.4 and tried to install.
    When it tries to detect my hardware, that message comes up.
    What would you suggest doing?

    Year-Old Driver Tries to Install After Every Reboot

    Radeon Omega drivers help!

    did you uninstall the old drivers before installing the omegadrivers? i suggest the following:

    1. uninstall all gfx drivers --> reboot
    2. run DriverCleaner --> reboot
    3. install new drivers --> reboot

    good luck! *Toast :toast:
