Hi,

Whenever I install the optinal update drivers(from Windows update) below, my laptop will lock-up and need to re-format.
I don't know which one cause the lockup and why, any idea?

✔ Best Answer
Drivers do not have to be updated just because they are available (which is why they are tagged "optional") Unless the device concerned is giving you problems you should not install driver updates.

In any case, you should only install drivers from your PC or laptop manufacturer's website as
the drivers offered by Microsoft may not be 100% compatible with your system (which probably accounts for the problems you're experiencing when they are installed).

So untick any optional driver updates offered by Microsoft in future. You don't need them if your devices are working okay.
