Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

HP Recommended
HPE-510t
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have been having problems with my Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Driver.
I ran DriverEasy (Free Version) and it stated I had an update available.
I have Window 7 Home Premium SP 1
RealTek version 2010-12-29 7.37.1229.2010   (Current)
Update version 2017-06-27 7.110.0627.2017 (Available)

I’m concerned what will happen if I update this driver.
If it fails I will no longer have any Internet connection to reinstall the version now on my computer.

 

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi,

 

Be sure to create a restore point prior to installing any driver update is the safest thing to do. If the driver fails to work then fall back to the previous restore point.  You can always download the HP posted driver for your PC and have it on the desktop in case the fall back to the previous restore point fails.

 

Check your BIOS level against the latest posted BIOS level.
