Necessary Details In Device Manager Examined

The “Installed on” column can help you find the update that started causing your computer troubles. Windows updates are listed in the “Microsoft Windows” section towards the bottom of the list.

Windows will “discover” there’s hardware on your machine it recognizes, but for which it doesn’t have drivers installed. It will then reinstall the driver from scratch.
