Hello CHAMELEON


In this case, the updates from Windows could be generic versions of the drivers, in order to know if these updates apply to your system it would be better to check with your system manufacturer. Based on the screenshots you provided your system seems to be an HP laptop/desktop so you can go to the HP website and use their tool to get your drivers updated or download them and update them manually from their site.

Hi Hugo

 

Yes, I have actually installed the drivers from hp's site directly already, so if I did this I guess I will ignore this on the windows settings.

Hello CHAMELEON


Yes, since these updates are optional, they might no affect the system functionality or they could be newer drivers not validated by your system manufacturer, so in this case, if you updated your drivers through the system's manufacturer website this updates should not be needed.
