Checking driver versions

2016-11-15, 13:53 PM

I try and download driver updates from the support site soon after they are released. However, sometimes it feels like the updates install after going through the installation process. There is no confirmation box or dialog box telling me to restart my computer. Is there some way to make sure I have the latest versions currently on the support site installed on my computer?

Hi tuhin , 

 

Greetings.

 

Checking on the listed devices on device manager then right click to choose properties. Driver tab would list the version of the driver that you may compare with the drivers offered on the support site. 

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

I also searched for a driver updater and have started using Driver Booster. Turns out all those drivers were not installing directly from Lenovo's website so everything was outdated. After using Driver Booster though, my computer is all up to date. In case anyone is having issues with updating their drivers, I recommend searching online for a program and installing it.

Hi tuhin , 

 

Third party software is not recommended for OEM machine and is the same reason why they would provide disclaimer to check with manufacturer first to avoid liability.

 

OEM supported drivers on the official website are "certified " (legally certified and tested by manufacturer) that should be considered highly specially if the machine is under warranty as uncertified drivers may lead to potential damage that may void warranty. 

 

Calling in tech support would be the best option as online search would rather attract malwares/ ransomware and possible dubious callers pretending as tech support claiming issues in your pc. 

 

Regards
