A driver is a hardware driver program on a computer. A hardware device can only function if we have installed the right drivers.

In Windows 10, almost all drivers will be installed automatically when we update for the first time after a fresh install. Windows will look for data on their servers during the update process, and if there is a suitable driver it will be installed automatically.

However, if there is still a device that cannot function, it means that there is a driver that is not known by Windows, then we must find and install the driver manually. This is because Windows doesn't have a suitable driver for this device on their server so it can't install it automatically during the update process.

List of drivers in Windows 10:

  • Audio inputs and outputs.
  • Biometric devices.
  • Bluetooth.
  • Hard drive / Hardisk.
  • Display Adapters (VGA).
  • Firmware.
  • Human Interface Device.
  • IDE ATA / ATAPI controllers.
  • Keyboard.
  • Mice and other pointing devices.
  • Monitors.
  • Network adapters (WiFi, Ethernet, LAN, WAN).
  • Other devices.
  • Portable Devices.
  • Ports (COM & LPT).
  • Printer.
  • Processors.
  • Security devices.
  • Sound, video and game controllers.
  • Storage controllers.
  • System devices.
  • Universal Serial Bus controllers.

To find the right drivers in Windows 10 is not a difficult thing, on this occasion bingGo will provide a tutorial on how to download unknown drivers from devices on your computer.

6. Open a driver search site

To find the driver based on the device we need the help of an automatic driver finder website. One pretty good site is driverpack.net, you can use this site.

7. Paste the device id on the site

Open the https://drp.su/en/catalog => paste the hardware id in the search field => enter.

8. Download and install the driver

After the results appear, you will see some recommended drivers for the device. Select a driver for Windows 10 and adjust the architecture version to your computer (32-bit or 64-bit).

Then download the driver in zip format, then install it on your computer.

Repeat the above steps until all drivers are installed correctly. You can check one by one in the Device Manager to make sure all devices are working properly, this will be very useful for speeding up Windows 10.

If the method above doesn't work to find a suitable driver for a certain device, then you need to look for it on the official site. Some devices may have closed source drivers or programs that are not available to the public, you can also check if the box has a driver CD that can be used.

That's the way to find and install unknown drivers that match the hardware in Windows 10. Hope this helps, if you still find problems, please comment below.
