How to find drivers that are missing from your computer

Is there a device that is connected to your computer that is not working properly, maybe you don’t have wireless networks or your Bluetooth isn’t working. You may have missing drivers. You should be able to find the drivers from the manufacturers website

To check to see what devices are connected to your computer you need to go to device manager. You can get there by typing “device” into the “search programs and files” search bar in the start menu, or you can right click on my computer and select the “manage” option.

You should get some links explaining more and then you need to sort through them and find out what the hardware is. Once you find what the hardware is that the driver is missing from then you need to download it from the “official” support page




Happy hunting hope this helps you find your missing drivers
