Tools to Troubleshoot Vista system drivers

March 26th, 2008 No comments

You have probably experienced problems with your drivers if you are running Microsoft Windows Vista. Most of these problems have to do with the drivers on your device being incompatible with Vista. Although it seems that many companies are coming out with driver updates to solve this problem, you might still have problems with this. Here’s how to troubleshoot your driver problems:

If you are looking for detailed device information on a specific driver, you can go to your Device Manager, select the device from the list, and then view the device’s property sheet. This works great if you know which specific driver you are having issues with. However, if you are not sure which driver is causing the problems, this way is very time consuming. Instead,  you can use a command-line tool called Driver Query.

Using Driver Query

Driver Query (Driverquery.exe) is a command-line tool  that is designed to provide you with a detailed list of all the device drivers installed on a local system or on any system on a network. To do its job the Driver Query provides you with a series of command-line parameters. (You can use the Driver Query command without any parameters, but using them allows you to get more specific details as well as format the results.)

For example, using the /si parameter provides information on just the signed drivers. Using the /v parameter (verbose mode) provides more details. Using the /fo parameter allows you to format the results as a list or to save the results in a CSV file (Comma Separated Values) so you can open them in a spreadsheet application such as Excel. (If you want to do any type of detailed analysis, you should save the results as a CSV file.)

To create a spreadsheet file containing information about only the signed drivers, you would open a Command Prompt window and type the command:

Driverquery /fo csv /si > signeddrivers.csv

To create a spreadsheet file containing detailed information about all the installed drivers, you would use this command:

Driverquery /fo csv /v > alldrivers.csv
