How to Find Out What Driver Version You Currently Have Installed

Here's a quick way to find out what version of driver your hardware is currently using:

Windows Vista:

Right-click 'Computer' and select 'Properties.'
Select the 'Device Manager' and after that, select the 'Continue' button if you are presented with the much-loved user access control box.
After the 'Device Manager' opens, select the small plus sign adjacent to the device's listing.
Double-click the device followed by the 'Driver' tab.
Here you'll find the 'Driver Date' and 'Driver Version' info.

Windows XP/2000:

Right-click 'My Computer' and select 'Properties.'
Select the 'Hardware' tab, then the 'Device Manager' option, followed by the small plus sign adjacent to the device's listing.
Double-click the device followed by the 'Driver' tab at the top.
Here you'll find the driver's date, edition number, vendor, and other info.

Windows 98/Me:

Right-click 'My Computer.'
Select 'Properties' followed by the 'Device Manager' tab at the top.
Select the plus sign adjacent to your device's listing, then double-click the particular device.
The Driver tab shows the driver's date; and you can select 'Driver File Details' to get the version number.

Note: We always recommend users skip the hassles of trying to find their own hardware model numbers and use an automatic driver update tool like Driver Wizard.
