Restore your driver with Roll Back in Windows® 7 PC


win7 device managerWindows 7 is ready to use and you must be thinking to install various hardware devices like digital cameras, video cards, and scanners. Windows 7 knows how to work with thousands of different hardware devices.

Because each of these devices is unique, your operating system needs a unique way of communicating with each one. It does so with a program called a driver.

If you’re installing a piece of hardware for the first time or if you’re suddenly having issues with a trusty piece of hardware, the first thing you may want to take is to update your drivers. That means replacing your current driver with a new one. Unluckily, an updated driver may not fix the problem and in some cases, it may do more harm than good.

However, whenever you update a driver, Windows 7 automatically saves a copy of the previous driver on your system. If you think a recent driver update is not suitable or compatible for your machine, you can use the Driver Roll Back feature to get rid of the new driver and replace it with the last one that worked. This feature is available for all device except printers.

Follow these easy steps to roll back a driver in Windows 7:

STEP 1. Open Control Panel and click on Device Manager.

STEP 2. In Device Manager, choose the device that you want to roll back the driver for.

STEP 3. Right click on device and open the Properties window for the device, click the Driver tab.

STEP 4. Next, you need to click on the Roll Back Driver button on the Driver tab.

STEP 5. Click the Yes button to the Are you sure you would like to roll back to the previously installed driver software .

STEP 6. Click the Close button at the bottom of the device properties screen.

STEP 7. Next reboot your system to bring changes into effect.

●    This tool allows you to roll back a driver once. In other words, Windows 7 support only keeps a copy of the very last driver installed. It does not keep any record of all previously installed drivers for the device.

●    Depending on the device driver you’re rolling back, it’s possible that you won’t need to restart your system.

●    If the Roll Back Driver button is disabled, this means Windows 7 does not have a previous driver to roll back to, so you won’t be able to use this feature.

●    This feature is available for all device except printers.

Windows 7 Migration


    When I roll back the driver form my wireless card it works fine until I reboot. Windows 7 then re installs the later faulty driver and I have to click roll back again. Any ideas?


    I have the same problem. My wireless card is a Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter. I’ll see if I can work around this by “hiding” the driver update in “Windows Update”. Still it is anoying.
