Computer drivers from a third-party
Updated: 05/24/2020 by Computer Hope
Unfortunately, the company you need drivers for has gone out of business, and their website is no longer available or no longer provides drivers for this product. Therefore, we cannot provide a direct link to the manufacturer's page or their driver page.
However, there are third-party companies and individuals who have made many of the hardware manufacturers' drivers and information available through their web pages. We recommend visiting our driver sites section for a complete list of these companies and a brief description of their services.
When downloading drivers from a third-party company, it's important to ensure you're downloading the proper drivers. Below we have listed our recommended steps of what to verify.
- First and most importantly, verify the manufacturer, make, and model number of the hardware device. Because you are not downloading the drivers directly from the manufacturer, the driver site may not list the proper device for your computer. Below is a listing of methods of how to determine a hardware device connected to your computer.
- Second, verify the drivers were designed or compatible with your operating system and not another operating system. For example, Microsoft Windows 98 drivers will not work with Windows 10.
- If instructions for the drivers are found on the driver web page, or the drivers include instructions, follow those instructions. Otherwise, follow our steps for installing computer drivers.
- Make sure the computer virus protection program is up-to-date in case the third-party drivers contain a virus.
