How to upgrade drivers on windows
This article describes steps to follow in order to upgrade drivers on your Windows system.
Installing new software could either cause conflicts with your hardware devices or create situations in which a hardware produced by a manufacturer would not work properly on your system.
That's the main reasons why hardware manufacturers release periodically upgraded versios of their drivers.
But how could you upgrade an old driver with a new one? The following instructions are for Windows Vista or later versions, but with some small intuitive changes they can be adapted to other Windows systems.
First find out what hardware you have:
by clicking on control panel
through a device manager
by clicking on plus sign to the left of the hardware you want to get information about
by right-clicking on it and selecting properties
by selecting the tab drivers
Neźt, from the tab drivers you should be able to get information about the installed driver. If you click on update driver you will be asked to select one of two options :
Find driver automatically;
Find the driver software on computer hard disk;
The first option will scan your computer and internet to search an upgraded driver for the device and if it is found, it is installed automatically. The second option is similar to the aforementioned but the search will be limited only to the computer hard drive.
