    Questions about driver troubleshooting.


    If I were to say that I accidentally uninstalled one of my "PCI-to-PCI Bridge" drivers, would Windows be able to re-install them?

    This question is asked just in case something like this happened in the future.

    Should be able to. Right click on the very top entry for the computer name and click on scan for hardware changes.

    How about automatically, can Windows do this by itself?

    Maybe on a full cold reboot.

    Alright, a few more questions. Aside from the two aforementioned methods, is the "PCI-to-PCI Bridge"driver restorable through any drivers made by my computing device's manufacturer?

    I also installed Windows 10 via Upgrade, is their anyway to re-install Windows 10 again, without another digital and/or physical copy?

    Without all the pci-to-pci-bridge drivers, what do I lose in stability, functionality, and performance? Also, how do I know they're all there?

    My last question would be, are you certain that either of the two processes you mentioned to recover said drivers would work 100%?

    Please respond.

    While the tutorial is immensely helpful, I'd still like to know if scanning for hardware changes, or doing a cold boot is a full-proof set of methods if not in the very least, a likely solution for the potential aforementioned problem.

    Please respond.

    Fool proof - no. Likely, yes.
