To check for any missing drivers on your laptop:

1.       Go to the Start Menu.

2.       Type Device Manager in Search and then click Enter.

3.       Once the Device Manager pops into the screen, Check for any yellow or red icons, These icons mean driver issues or problems.

4.       To update or install drivers, right click on the component you want to update or change and select “Update Driver”. You have the option to update via Windows or a disk that came with the device. You can also select “Scan for Hardware Changes” to check if you have made any changes to the hardware.

5.       Or you can download third party software like DriverMax. DriverMax is free software that you can install and it will search, fix and download for the drivers that you need.
