"Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date"
All I want to know is how to disable this. I have the correct drivers on my desktop, but Windows 7 will not let me update it.
Seriously, that's ALL I want to know. I've looked quite a bit for the answer as I assumed it would be quite simple.
First thing - Never assume a computer answer will be simple. I've been in this biz for 9 years, and just because the issue seems simple doesn't make it so. That's probably the Cardinal Rule #1 when dealing with PC issues.
Now, if Windows says your driver is up to date, I would listen to Windows. As long as the device is working correctly, don't change it. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". If you change the driver forcefully, you may cause more harm than good.
