I am using Compaq Presario CQ41-110AU and Windows 7, but I have no idea whether any drivers already installed or not :(
because I asked my friend to re-install my laptop.
How to find out what drivers have not been installed yet? and I also need MS Office for Win 7, how to install it?
Thank you in advance.
This guide will show you how to check your computer device driver so that you can identify which driver you need to install. This guide apply for windows XP, Vista and 7.
1. First we use device manager to check our devices. To open device manager click start and on the search box type DEVMGMT.MSC
2. Then a device manager will open. There you will see list of devices of your computer.
a) A computer with all the drivers installed will show no yellow mark in the device manager
b) while the computer with incomplete driver will show yellow mark. But for your graphic (Display), it will show Video controller with yellow mark or under the display adapters it will show Standard VGA Graphic adapters.
3. So now you can identify weather your computer driver is missing driver or not. So the problems is how to get the right Driver.
a) If you know yor computer model say Lenovo Ideapad s10, so just type "Lenovo Support" on google and enter the support site. So browse for your driver there.
b) If it appear that you didn't know what is your model. You can get the hardware ID for the devices and search the hardware ID on google.
c) Lastly, You can request your driver here in Request section.
