How to Update Windows 7 Drivers
Download Driver Easy to Update All Drivers Instantly

You may want to update drivers for your Windows 7 to fix some hardware issues or get better PC performance. For whatever reason, you can update drivers easily. There are two ways you can update the drivers: manually & automatically. 

Manual driver update:  

You can update the drivers manually via Deivce Manager. Follow these steps.

1) On your desktop, press and hold the Start button and right-click Computer then click Manage. This is to open Device Manager.


2) Click Device Manager in left pane. 


3) Double click the device name that you wish to update the driver for to expand the list of the this device.

For instance, if you wish to update “Realtek High Definition Audio” driver, double-click Sound, video and game controller branch then you’ll see the “High Definition Audio Device” under this branch. Then right-click the device name and select Update Driver Software… 

Note: For some devices, the device name displayed in Driver Easy is different from the device name displayed in Device Manager.

In Driver Easy, you can click on the driver and get the name of current driver. Then locate the device in Device Manager using this name.

4) Click Browse my Computer for driver software.

6) Click Browse to find the location of the downloaded driver file.


In Driver Easy, click on the Down Triangle button then select Open File Location to get the location of the downloaded driver file.

Alternatively, you can copy and paste the location address of the downloaded driver files to the box.

the location address:

7) Click Next  to install the driver.


Automatic driver update:

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy Pro ( You’ll get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee with the Pro.) With Driver Easy Pro, you just need to click your mouse two times to update all drivers.

1) Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

2) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.

        im having this same issue, when im on the very last step of installing the driver it quickly brings me to the next page and says,”windows has determined that your driver software for your device is up to date”. if you could help me it would be greatly appreciated

          When you go to find the driver, do not click on find in the right, click on allow me to choose in a list of drivers, then you click on the driver that will appear and install it.

        • Lona (^.^)

          same thing here. i guess there is nothing wrong with those drivers, and driver easy is just offering updates that are not that needed. if windows thinks everything is up to date then it 99% is.

    Hi pauloandes,

    Updating drivers manually is a little complicated. Why not try the Driver Easy Pro which allows you to update all drivers with just one click.
    Driver Easy Pro provides 30 days money back guarantee. If it doesn’t solve your driver problems, just ask for a full refund.
