Driver is the basic data for Windows to identify hardware devices, as well as help Windows exploit the power and features from them. Hardware manufacturers also provide driver packages that Windows can recognize when connecting devices to a computer.

In case you do not have any driver packages available, Windows will automatically detect and download it through Windows Update. Or users can visit the manufacturer's website to download. However, if the two methods do not work well then you can refer to this simple suggestion below. 

First, access the Windows Device Management feature by pressing the WIN + X key combination and clicking on the Device Manager option. If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, you can search for Device Manager from the Start menu.
