    Drivers from 2006


    hi,
    I did a clean install of windows 10 and i saw that in device manager most of the drivers of microsoft are from 2006!! When i update them automatically says that they are up to date. So there aren't any newer drivers from then?
    thank you

    Are you having problems with them?

    I have some of those too, I don't think the date matters if it works.

    If you're looking for a reason why, I'm sure someone will enlighten us.

    It is normal all the drivers that come with Windows 10 are dated 2006 (I was curious if that was a mistake at first myself ). If you look at the driver version for each of those drivers though you will notice that the driver version actually corresponds to the build number of windows 10. Here is an example:

    As You can see the driver version is 10.0.10240.16384. (The 10.0.10240 is the build number, the .16384 is the version number, and it is the version number from a fresh installation before any updates. Running msinfo32 shows that we are actually up to version 16392 ). As to why they labeled them this way I have no idea. But back to your original question yes it is normal!
