  3. Sounds like you might be trying to grab the wrong driver. Have you tried running the auto update utility?

  4. The problem appears to be that Minecraft itself installs and uses Java 1.8.0_25 unless it is told to do something different.

    Open minecraft, I take it you can get to the launcher? That shows the profile in the bottom left corner. Click edit profile and the profile editor will open on the latest profile.

    Near the bottom under the java settings you will see the Executable field and it is probably unchecked but has the following greyed out:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft\runtime\jre-x64\1.8.0_25\bin\javaw.exe.

    You can see here that Minecraft is getting Java from its own version in the Minecraft folder. But Mojang doesnt update this!

    Check the box and replace it with the following if you have just updated java (this may be incorrect for your system but if it works it will always point to the latest version):

    Save the profile and press play. This ensures you are using the latest java 64 bit for minecraft.

    If it doesnt work you need to find java in the Program Files folders and then look through the java folder for the correct javaw.exe file. It should still be in the \Java\jre VERSION\bin\ folder. The problem with this method is you need to do it manually each time you update java.

    Give this a go and see how it works. If it still fails then it is more likely your pc needs the driver update.

  5. If people are trying the path and it is failing we need to find the actual path. I am basing the above off a Windows 10 64 bit computer. If you are on an earlier version and havent updated Java, that path may not be there.

    Open up Windows Explorer, My Computer, This PC, so many different names. It's where you can view the drives and folders on your computer. We need to get to the C: drive (my C: drive is named System-SSD in the pic) and look for two folders, Program Files and Program Files(x86). You will not have the Program Files (x86) folder if you are on 32 bit Windows PC.

    If you have a 64-bit machine it will have both of those folders as shown in the pic

    For either machine you need to open the Program Files folder (not x86) and find the Java folder. If you don't have a Java folder then it isnt installed. Go to and install it. UNCHECK ANY EXTRAS LIKE ASK.COM It "should" install both 32 and 64 bit versions. If it asks to uninstall old versions then do it.

    You should see something like this depending on how many versions you have installed.

    You can see the path in the address bar: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_91\bin
    The file you need is javaw.exe so the full path to use is C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_91\bin\javaw.exe

    The big problem with this method is you will need to update your Minecraft profiles everytime you update Java. But at least you have these instructions.

    If you can, the other path should always point to the latest version.
  6. Some people may not be sure which Bit version of drivers to use on a 64 bit machine. (32 bit can only use 32 bit programs and drivers).

    For Programs you install like java, MS Office, games, etc, you can use either 32-bit or 64-bit but to allow them to use more memory and increase performance the 64 bit version is preferred. There are cases like MS Office where it makes no difference to performace but it can be better to stick with the 32-bit for compatibility.

    For Drivers, you must use the same Bit version as your system. So 32 bit drivers for 32 bit machines, 64 bit drivers for 64 bit machines.

    Now this is where it can get complicated. Drivers are the special programs that allow your OS to "talk" to devices like printers, hard drives, monitors and of course graphics cards. As an example, if you install a Full Installation package for a printer it will have the appropriate 64-bit driver for printing and scanning but it may have 32-bit programs for managing the printer or doing the scans. As long as you chose the 64-bit version for the driver you should be ok.

    A lot of packages will have both versions of the driver included. Drivers are usually a lot smaller than the programs that come with them so it makes sense to have one package that will automatically choose the right driver and install that along with the programs.

  7. 8u91 is the latest :p
    Also do you get an error along these lines? :

    If so you need to go to that site. Your computer manufacturer updates the drivers/adds new features and the site will basically tell you to manually install the driver. That page is :
    (I know all this because i had the same problem)
