What to do if I can not find update in server msi

MSI’s driver and app center is a great control panel for keeping all your drives up and running. In an ideal scenario, all updates are centralized there and ready to be installed.

But what happens if you can not find updates in MSI’s driver? This could be the starting point for multiple errors, so it’s best to resolve the problem quickly.

Why I can not find MSI driver update in server?

There are a few reasons why you can’t find any MSI driver updates in the server, and we will highlight the most viable of them:

  • You have an older CPU – You need to know that the MSI Driver & App Center app only supports CPUs newer than Intel Kaby Lake (7th Gen) so if you have an older model, this app won’t help you and will return that error.
  • Issues with the app – Maybe the MSI Driver & App Center app is simply not working, but this guide will help you fix it.
  • The latest drivers are already installed If your drivers are already up to date, it’s obvious you won’t find any new ones.
  • You don’t have MSI hardware If you installed the app, but don’t have MSI hardware installed, you won’t find any drivers.

Now that we know about the reasons behind this error, let’s go through the actual solutions to fix it.

What can I do if I can not find MSI updates in server?

Before getting deeper with the fixes, let’s go through a few easy fixes that might work:

  • Verify if you have a CPU newer than Intel Kaby Lake (7th Gen). To find out, open Settings and hit the About tab. You will see the processor information in Device description.
  • Restart the MSI Driver & App Center. Just close it, wait for a minute or so and open it again.
  • Make sure that your device is connected to the Internet properly. You need it because the app is looking for drivers online.
  • Install the latest OS updates because they also contain drivers.

Now that we’ve cross-checked these preemptive solutions from the list, let’s fix the problem using the solutions below.

1. Manually download and install the MSI drivers

  1. Visit the MSI download page.
  2. Enter your product data by using the drop-down menus and hitting the Search button.
  3. Select the Driver tab, make sure you set the right OS from the drop-down menu below, and finally, click the Download button.
  4. Depending on the driver, follow the instructions to install it.

2. Check the optional drivers in Windows Update

  1. Click Start and go to Settings.
  2. Select Update & Security.
  3. Now, click on View optional updates.
  4. Select the Driver updates section to expand it, check the box if you find an MSI driver, and hit the Download and install button below.

Sometimes if you can not find updates in your driver, you may actually find them in the optional updates section.

3. Reinstall the MSI Driver & App Center app

  1. Click the Start button and select Settings.
  2. Choose Apps from the menu.
  3. Look for the MSI Driver & App Center app within the list, click on it and select the Uninstall button.
  4. Now, use the original installer or download the app again from Microsoft Store to reinstall it fresh.

If the issue persists or you simply can’t find the right driver, you can contact MSI support directly.

You may either file a ticket with your request or call the hotline and talk to a representative to fix your issue.
