subfolders and find the right driver. Click Next. We'll wait a minute, and notice once again in the background, that device disappeared from other devices, and it tells us now that the audio capture portion is working properly. So now under sound, video, and game controllers, I have my video capture device and my audio capture device, and the device is working properly. So that's one option for troubleshootingmisbehaving devices. In this case, we didn't have the proper device drivers loaded on the system, so we downloaded them and used Device Manager to install the newer device driver that supported a newer version of Windows. There may be other situations however when you have to use other tools to troubleshoot a malfunctioning driver. For example, you may load a new driver that you downloaded from the manufacturer's website, only to find out that that driver is no good and it's making your system unstable. You can try to use Device Manager to uninstall that driver if you want to. Restoring the System to a Restore Point 5:55-6:56 But sometimes the easiest way to recover is to instead, revert the system to a prior restore point.There are two different ways to do this. If the system is stable enough, it'll stay up and running long enough, you can right-click on the Windows icon, open up system in Control Panel. Go to System protection and then click on System Restore. Now we can use either the recommended restore pointor I can click this option down here to use a different restore point. And then pick which restore pointI want to revert the system to. Right here, I have a restore point that I created manually right before I installed the new video drivera little while ago. And if I wanted to, I could click that and click Next and restore the system to that restore point. And that would be a good option. I'm not actually going to go through with the systemrestore because it would mess up the recording of this demonstration. But that is a great way to get the system back to a working state really quickly. Let's go ahead and cancel out of here. Now again as I said this only works if your system is stable enough to get to this point. Booting into Windows 6:57-9:11 If it's not, another option is to boot the system off of your installation media and run a repair. Now be aware that there may be times when the system will not boot far enough for you to get to Control Panel to restore the system to a restore point. Now all is not lost if this happens. Now what you can do is to instead boot the system from your installation disk. Your Windows installation disk. And then in the Windows setup screen here, click Next. But instead of clicking Install now, come down here instead to repair your computer. And in the Choose an option screen, click on Troubleshoot. And then click on Advanced options, and then in this screen you can click on System Restore. And we've clicked the target operating system, Windows 10. And when we do, we see the same screen that we saw when we accessed system restore from Control Panel. We can go through the wizard to select the restore point that we want to restore the system from. I'm going to go ahead and click Cancel here.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
