On this page, we will share the information we have on the latest Broadcom Crystal Drivers for Windows 10.
The link given below points to the official driver repository where you have to select your device and download the drivers.
Crystal HD is the Broadcom’s hardware SIP core that performs video decoding.
Crystal HD has been available as single chip high-definition advanced media processors BCM70012 and BCM70015; these chips are found on mini PCIe cards for purchase.
The BCM970012 supports hardware decoding of H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, VC-1, WMV9 and MPEG-2 and the BCM970015 additionally supports DivX 3.11, 4.1, 5.X, 6.X and Xvid. VP8, Daala and HEVC are not supported.
Broadcom Crystal HD is found in a couple of products, such as the Dell Inspiron, HP Slate 500 or ExoPC, ASUS Eee Keyboard.
So usually the best way to handle hardware issues and install Crystal drivers is through the Device Manager.
Let’s walk through the steps.
Now a computer restart is usually not needed, but if it is necessary, do a reboot and your drive will be installed, and the hardware ready to use.
If that doesn’t work, it’s time to look for other solutions online.
Look through the forums, questions and Google and see if you can find a solution.
If all of the above doesn’t work for you, you should use a third party software solution.
We recommend Driver Reviver.
Considering all of the individual components on your PC, not to mention external devices such as printers, scanners, web cams, Hard Drives and more, keeping abreast of all the latest Drivers can not only be a time consuming and tedious task, but also one that can be terribly confusing.
Driver Reviver solves this problem by allowing you to scan all of your hardware to identify the current Driver that is installed on your system, and determines if it is the most up-to-date version.
Once the required updates are identified, Driver Reviver then allows you to quickly and easily download and install all these updates from one central location.
Driver Reviver ensures you are getting the maximum performance from your PC, its components and its software.
