Welcome to Geeks2Go!

If the problem persists, you might solve it by "rolling back" the driver if it's currently using the latest one. You do this in Device Manager by double-clicking the device and clicking the 'driver' tab. Sometimes new drivers contain bugs or cause problems which the previous driver didn't suffer from. It's not compulsory or even desirable to think you must always have the latest drivers installed -- and that applies to any device. Drivers should only be updated if they address a specific problem you're having. Your new driver seems to have had the opposite effect -- introducing a problem where none existed before.
