Are you constantly troubled by faulty or outdated drivers? Half of the Windows XP users are frequently bothered by errors or problems such as blue screen & freezing, unrecognizable USB device, not being able to access to printers, scanner and DVD player, systems slowing down and so on.
Why does those errors and problems happen?
A device or software driver is a special computer program that allows operating system to connect with hardware devices and control the routines of hardware. Only with proper device drivers, can your operation system gives orders to hardware and haves them implement the orders!
If yours are not installed properly or go wrong, your computer can not work properly and your computer may encounter a series of problems, like bugs and poor performance. What is worse, you may face continual device conflicts, system errors and even complete system crashes.
How to avoid and fix the Windows XP and Vista driver errors?
You need to find out existing faulty ones and uninstall them. Then go to the websites of the device manufacturers and find the latest versions. Most manufacturers like ATI, nVIDIA, Intel and so on, they frequently update and release new drivers of some models of their devices. You can download and reinstall them directly.
Please keep in mind that you need to be very careful when you look for the latest versions. Because if you install the wrong ones, you will make things go from bad to worse! You need to check out the exact models in your computer and find out the corresponding ones and download.
It’s not a easy job to manually update all the Windows drivers by yourself. If you want to keep your computer in high performance, you will need to update disk drive, sound card, video card, DVD, chipset, printer, keyboard, mouse driver and so on. It will take you a long time to complete all the work.
So I suggest you go and find a driver scan software to detect the faulty and outdated ones, then download and install. It will be easier to complete all the painful work and keep them up to date.
