Q: What are Drivers?
A: Drivers are helper programs for your hardware. They act as mediators or translators. Since different types of hardware components do different things, they need a special application to help them translate their tasks into data that the operating system (Windows) can understand. Printers need drivers to show them how to print your documents; network adapters need drivers to transform internet signal into web pages and online media; and USB ports need drivers to tell Windows how to sort out the data they're inputting.
Q: How can Drivers get Outdated?
A: When a piece of hardware gets installed, part of that process is installing the needed drivers. Over time, new technologies come out, including new media interfaces on the web, new data-transfer methods like USB, and new functionalities for old things like printers - enabling them to become smarter and faster. Instead of asking you to continually buy new hardware, manufacturers publish new drivers that can meet the latest demands. These are what allow old hardware to work with new versions of Windows.
Q: What is DriverUpdate?
A: DriverUpdate is an advanced Driver maintenance tool. It equips you with a way to easily see all of the drivers on your PC, what's called a driver profile. This profile gives you a head's up view of your computer's hardware configuration in a way that's easy to read and understand. It automatically tells you which drivers can be updated or if any drivers are damaged. Best of all, DriverUpdate will actually go and get the driver updates is you want it to. With just a few clicks, it will access the right new driver online and start the install process.
Q: How often do I need to Update Drivers?
A: If your goal is to stay up-to-speed with the latest features and technology, we recommend checking for new drivers every week. If however, you encounter any hardware errors like malfunctioning printers, scanners, keyboards or mice - then it's a good idea to check for faulty drivers right away. Driver errors in internal components can even cause PC slowdown, freezes and bluescreens.
