Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA) is not Detecting my Devices as I get Error: "Sorry, something went wrong while trying to scan."


Operating System

Windows_10, windows7, windows81, windows8


Steps to re-enable Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA) to detect my device


When running the tool, there is an error message Sorry, something went wrong while trying to scan.

  1. Clear the browser cache and close the browser.
  2. Try rescanning Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA), ensuring browser being used is Firefox, Chrome, or Edge.

If this doesn't result in the Intel DSA scan working correctly, try the following:

  1. Uninstall the existing Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA) tool in the system using the Uninstaller tool.
  2. Download and install the latest Intel® DSA version

When Intel® DSA cannot detect your device, it's due to the following reasons:

  • You have an older component.
  • Your component is discontinued or isn't supported.
  • You have a component not produced by Intel.
  • You have a customized driver pre-installed by the computer manufacturer.
  • The component isn't in Intel's database.
