Automatically Find and Install Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Drivers using DriverFinder

When you only need the USB drivers to be installed, either because they are missing, or you want the latest version of the USB drivers, you can use DriverFinder.

  1. Download and install the DriverFinder software.
  2. Acquire a license for the application and activate the software.
  3. Run a Scan to check for updated drivers.
  4. Download and install the recommended Foscusrite Scarlett 212 driver updates.

The benefit of this approach is that ALL your device drivers can get updated! The USB controller drivers and other audio drivers are also checked and updated when required.

Error Message: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 No Hardware Connected

When you start the Focusrite Control software, you might see a black screen with the message “No Hardware Connected”.

Focusrite No Hardware Connected

Firstly, ensure the drivers are correctly installed. If necessary, open the Device Manager, uninstall the device and then reinstall the drivers. You can find the Focusrite USB Audio device under Sound, video and game controllers.

Secondly, check all connections. All physical connections need to be properly attached. Try a different port if you can.

For the USB audio interface, it is important to connect the USB cable from the Scarlett 2i2 directly to the computer. The USB port needs to be USB 2.0 or higher. It is also important to be aware that the device is powered through the USB port. So connect the USB cable to a USB port directly on the PC motherboard (back of the computer for most desktops). For laptops, it is recommended to plug the laptop to its power cord.

Do not use a USB hub unless it is really required. And if you do, make sure it has a separate power supply, to ensure it can feed the Scarlett 2i2 USB interface sufficient power.

Lastly, make sure you selected the right version of the Focusrite software. The latest Control software will not detect older versions of the Scarlett audio interface.

 

Install an AOC Monitor Driver in Windows

Is your AOC monitor not recognized by your PC? Then you need an AOC monitor driver for Windows.

Monitor drivers in general are the same across Windows versions. Drivers for Windows 7 will work in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 as well. In many cases even older drivers will work fine. The reason for this is that monitor drivers only contain information about the monitor’s characteristics, like supported screen resolutions and color profiles. So a change in Windows versions does not mean  your monitor is no longer usable.

In this article we’ll explain where you can find drivers for your AOC monitor and how to install it.

Manually Install a Monitor Driver for Your AOC Monitor Model

  1. The first step is to identify your AOC monitor model. Simply look at the back of your monitor for the type indication.
  2. The next step is to find and download the appropriate AOC monitor driver. Go to the AOC driver download site. Enter your AOC monitor model number in the search field and click the search icon (1).

    If you are not able to find the AOC monitor model using the search bar, you can locate it by browsing the size options below the search option (2).
  3. Next, click on the monitor icon on the webpage to download the driver file. Depending on the browser you use, you might need to choose a download location and confirm the file save operation.
