Greetings,
I am returning to Bleepingcomputer.com for a different issue my laptop is having. My issue with my desktop, involving trojans and viruses, was cleaned and fixed with your awesome help, which I am very grateful. I recently re-formatted my laptop. I downloaded some drivers that I thought were for my components, but not. My laptop has frequent freezes as I start up a program, roam the internet, etc. I believe some of the wrong drivers are conflicting and causing issues? Any help would be, once again, greatly appreciated. As a side note, I try to start a launcher for a game I play but as I do, the system freezes temporarily, and I can't access Task manager.

Laptop drivers should always (and only) be downloaded from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If that's not where you obtained them, go there and download and install the correct drivers - starting with the chipset driver. Uninstall the other drivers before installing the new ones (or format and reinstall the OS from scratch if you prefer, then install the correct drivers).

I understand that some drivers were installed that were not for my hardware. I went and installed the correct drivers for my hardware from the manufacturer website. I am curious if the other drivers, which i previously installed, are interferring with the correct, working drivers. If so, I do not know how to get rid of the wrong drivers, even if that is the issue.

Look in device manager. Are there any yellow or red symbols?
