Depending on your hardware and OS, you can download device drivers either from here, from the manufacturer's webiste, or instead use your OS's package management system. See the "more info" link for help with the specifics

For an indication of what devices are detected by the OS of your onboard computer, use the System control panel if running Windows, or run the lspci and lsdev commands as root on Linux.

Contact support if you need help.
