Driver & support assistant don't work

Hi. 

My diver & support assistant won't work it says:

"Sorry, something went wrong while trying to scan."

I've been searching for this and many have the similar problems, but I can't find a working solution. I've  been trying to reinstall the assistant but that doesn't work either. 

Hope there is someone who knows how to solve this,

thank you.

Hello Alex31,


Please try the following steps to try to solve the issue:


  1. Clear the browser cache and close the browser.
  2. Try rescanning Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA).


In case this doesn't work, try the following:

1. Uninstall the existing Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA) tool in the system using the Uninstaller tool.

2. Download and install the latest Intel® DSA version


https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html


In case the reinstallation doesn't solve the issue: 


  1. Ensure the Intel® DSA Service shows a status of Running.
    1. In Windows Search, type Services and scroll to find Intel(R) Driver & Support Assistant.
    2. Confirm the Status shows Running; start the service if necessary by right-clicking.
  2. Check to see if any Windows* updates are pending.
  3. Restart the system.

Hello Alex31,


Thank you for posting on the Intel®️ communities. In order to have a better understanding of the issue, please share with us the following information: 


  1. Was it working before?
  2. When did the issue start happening?
  3. Were any recent changes made to the system?
  4. Which browser are you using?


Also please download and install the Intel®️ System Support Utility (Intel®️ SSU):

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- 

Open the application and select "Everything" click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel®️ SSU will take you to the "Summary View". Click on the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".  

Click on "Next", save the report and attach it to your response.

Hi and thanks for the reply!

1) It was working before that's why I think it's so wierd. 

2) If i remember correctly the error happend when I didn't update my drivers for a while, I had a lot of updates to do. It was during 2021, in the summer I think. 

3) I haven't made any changes to my systems except for the updates through windows. 

4) I'm using chrome as my browser. 

I'm attaching a file here. I can also mention that for example my webcam can't be found. It works sometimes for about a minute before it disappears again. I think I had a driver update to do for my webcam, this was during the summer. 

Thanks again, Alexander.

I tried that and it still will not work:  I get this: 

Sorry, something went wrong while trying to scan.

What to do now after I uninstalled and downloaded the updated app?
