Hi, my name is Luke, and this is "how to re-install a driver." A driver is something that allows the hardware of your computer to communicate with the software. Sometimes, when drivers don't install properly, you might wanna re-install them. One way of doing this is by going to the start bar, going over to computer, right-click, and then go to manage. This will open up a prompt that will bring us to device manager. Go over to device manager on the left, and left-click. Here's a list of installed hardware, or devices, in your machine. Select the driver in question that you'd like to re-install, or isn't working properly, right-click on it, and click properties. In the tab at the top, you'll see one that's called driver. Select this. This will give you information on the driver, the signer, the version, the date. If you'd like to uninstall a currently installed driver, click uninstall. This will remove the driver. To then reinstall it, you will then click update driver. Windows will go out to the Internet, provided you're connected, and go and get the driver that you need, and that's it.
