Note: To determine the file version, use Windows Explorer and go to the appropriate directory where the drivers are installed. Right-click the file name and select "Properties." A dialog box will pop up with information about the files. Two tabs are located at the top of the dialog box, "General" and "Version." Select the "Version" tab. The "Version" tab will display a field with the "File Version" information. This is the version of the selected driver file. This information can be used to determine which version of the driver is installed on the machine.
