Note: The drivers for notebooks can be found with similar method.

Generally speaking, you could find the drivers that you desire based on the configuration and operating system of your computer. But since some drivers share some similarities, if you meet any of the following situations, please follow the instructions:

1. If you find two drivers that could be applied to the same part, you should select the drivers applicable to the operating system of your machine.

2.If you find two brands of drivers that could be applied to the same operating system, such as Intel Wireless Driver and Broadcom Wireless Driver, you should make the selection according to the configuration of your computer.

3. If you find two drivers that could be applied to the same part and the same operating system, you should select the latest version, which usually is released lately and placed at the top of the driver list.

It's better to install the Chipset Driver first, and then other hardware device drivers such as Ethernet Driver, Audio Driver, Graphics Driver, and lastly, external device drivers.

Run the ".EXE" file that you have selected and install the driver according to the directions in the popup menu. The files will be installed under the folder C:\Drivers by default.
