Device Drivers For Windows XP
Locating Windows XP Drivers
Many times it can be a daunting task to find a driver for windows xp. I've probably located over 10,000 drivers in my career. In many cases, you can use the manufacturers website. Sometimes, you can even go to Google, Yahoo, or MSN and search for drivers and weed through 100,000 results to find the one you need. I would like to present an alternative way of updating PC drivers.
If I could go back in time, and have something like I'm going to tell you about in this hub, I would have probably a years worth of my life back! This software is so simple to use, I believe I could teach my 8 year old to do it! I'm very confident in this software and how simple it is to use.
First, let's talk about what PC Drivers are.
What are PC Drivers?
PC Drivers are little programs that tell Windows XP (or any other operating system) how to interact with different devices attached to your computer. These microprograms translate commands sent by your computer into a language that the device understands.
I have seen many printers start printing a garbled mess that's not understandable to anyone. This is usually due to corrupt drivers. A modem that can no longer dial into a dialup ISP. I've seen network cards that could not communicate on the network. These are all because there is miscommunication between the operating system and the devices usually caused by corrupt drivers.
Automatically Update Windows XP Drivers
There is an alternative now to manually hunting down PC Drivers. I found a software called Driver Detective that is the most simple way to update Windows XP drivers that I've found. You simple download the software, install it on your PC, and have it scan.
It finds all the drivers on your system, then it searches through it's database to find the most recent updates for these drivers. Once it finds them, you click another button and it updates everyting you choose to update! How simple is that?
I was truly impressed with this product and I think you will be as well.
