Drivers for HP machines & Win10.

After all of that (uninstall, install, WU, uninstall, rename folders, cCleaner, install driver only) things settled down.
In fact, WU gave me the correct AMD IDE and USB drivers
(or one of my attempts to get rid of CCC did ?????)
How is Win10 installed (VM, separate part, 2nd drive, or VHD)? I'm running Win10 in a VHD and on a separate part (different machines). A VM will virtualize the HW, so all bets are off for that type of install.
AS usual, if Windows screws up HW drivers - go to the source. You know my methods - start at a known base (HP downloads) and move up to newer drivers if issues occur (the OEM is the ONLY place I go - AMD, IDT (beats audio), Realtek, Synaptics, etc).
usasma, jcgriff2, writhziden, Laxer, and others maintain a great Driver Resource Table (should be the same information in both places):
Driver Reference Table AND Driver Reference Table (DRT)
The thing is with Win10 that Windows Update might try to 'update' the driver again
- you might want to turn of Driver installation in
Control Panel -> System - > Advanced System Settings -> Hardware tab [ Device Installation Settings ] button
