Installation of the driver may cause problems beyond the device being installed. It is recommended to select No to avoid installing the driver.

Check the driver vendor's website for a driver that is specifically compatible with your version of Windows.

If no other driver exists, and you want to try it, be sure to have a good backup of the OS prior to the attempt.
