Note: If Windows fails to find a new driver for you, go for the device manufacturer’s website to try finding one. 

However, downloading and updating drivers manually is not for everyone even some computer experts are unwilling to do that. That is why I recommend Wise Driver Care, which can automatically scan your computer and list the missing and outdated drivers, so that you can download and update them all with one-click.  Have a try!
