:welcome:     Patrick Kazaryan

 

If you are having no issues with a previous driver then it is advisable to leave well alone, newer is not always better and you will find that driver updates are often released to address a known issue, if you are not having the particular issue that the driver update is intended to resolve it is likely that you will end up with the very same issue if you needlessly install the driver update, further information here

 

If you were trying to resolve an issue by updating the driver let us know and we will do our best to help.
