 Update Drivers via the Hardware Update Wizard
Article Sometimes, Windows insists on using certain drivers because it is a signed driver, which Microsoft prefers. This, however, prevents you from benefiting from certain features that the hardware manufacturer (e.g., SiS, VIA, HP, Realtek, etc.) intends for you to have.

You can still update to new device drivers but do this via the Windows Hardware Update Wizard. This way, you are telling your Windows PC, to use the new drivers you want.

Note: The steps below assume that you have already downloaded and installed the new driver recommended by DriverFinder.
  1. From the Windows menu, click Start.
  2. Click System, choose Hardware, and then click Device Manager.
  3. Click the device whose driver you want to update.
  4. Right-click the device and then click Update Driver. This will open the Hardware Update Wizard.
  5. Click No, not this time and then click Next.
  6. Click Install from a list or specific location (advanced) and then click Next.
  7. Click Don't search. I will choose the driver to install and then click Next.
  8. Select the NEW driver you downloaded from DriverFinder under the list of available drivers.
  9. Finish the Hardware Update Wizard.
  10. Reboot your computer.
