The computer will ask you for two options i.e. search automatically or install custom drivers.

It will take a while for downloading and installing drivers but I am quite sure it will resolve your control panel’s issue. When your computer has done the downloading and installation progress of drivers, you will need to click on close. When you hit the close button, a small bar appears which asks you for restarting your pc, this bar will appear if your drivers are done.
