Realize that manual device driver setups are not always simple. The installation of the device driver alone is not commonly that hard but downloading the correct device driver might very well be. You of course you already should know the producer and version of your device. If you know the website address of the manufacturing business you can go ahead and enter that web site. In many cases the manufacturer will provide a customer support or file download area. On some sites there will be a search form where you can type your device version to look up. Once found, the page for your product type should host the up-to-date device drivers for your device. If you are having doubts about which model your product is, I highly promote giving the automatic driver update utility a go first. If you are unable to locate a device driver, the producer may have stopped supporting the hardware. This tend to happen when the company stops supporting earlier products and expect that you are going to upgrade. You will need to utilize an automated device driver update application to gain access to driver updates in this situation.
