How To Roll Back a Bad Driver

  • Go to your Start Menu
  • Type Device Manager into the search box at the bottom of the Start Menu
  • Select Device Manager from the menu
  • Double-click Sound, video and game controllers (or the device type that is acting strangely)
  • Double-click on the device that you want to revert back to an old driver
    • Click on the Driver tab
    • Click Roll Back Driver and follow the wizard
  • If Roll Back Driver is not an option (it is grayed out), there are no older drivers available on your PC

If you automate driver updates with PerfectUpdater, you won’t need to roll back bad drivers.
