Troubleshooting: Drivers

If you have trouble connecting to your laser, you may need to install or update the drivers that allow your computer to communicate with the laser's controller software.

We've done our best to list the driver requirements for a variety of devices and operating systems, along with information on how to install the drivers. If you have a device with a driver that isn't listed, we'd appreciate you letting us know by clicking the envelope icon next to the header below to send an email to our support and documentation teams.

Some lasers that come with their own software may require you to install that software to install the drivers.
