Right click on the device in device manager and choose update driver. You will need an inf as well. But first, choose view by connection and see if the current driver has enumerated children. If it has and you replace it, all those children no longer exist

Hi Pei,

Thank you for your help.

The device driver I'm writing is for vendor=0x8086, device=0x1C4E

This is the south bridge of the Intel's CPU.

The problem is that my device manager already has such device, I guess for other purpose.

So if I "scan for hardware changes" no driver is missing.

How can I add a device manually ?
