Rolling Back a Device Driver

Windows XP has a built-in feature to 'roll back' to a previous version of a device driver. This feature comes in handy after you install a new version of a device driver and it starts making your system unstable.

To roll back a device driver:
  • Right-click on 'My Computer' and select Manage.
  • In the Computer Management console, open the 'Device Manager'.
  • Double-click the device that is giving you problems.
  • Click the Driver tab.
  • Press the 'Roll Back Driver' button.
Your system will revert to the previous version of the driver after you restart it.
