Importance of keeping your drivers updated

 

Updated drivers allow you to use new programs and new hardware.

 

You should update your drivers if:

 

  • You have a new device.
  • You see an error message that tells you to update to a new driver.
  • You see problems while using hardware.

 

You may not need to update your drivers if:

 

  • Your system is working correctly.
  • You experience issues with the speed of your machine. Updated drivers do not upgrade slow computers.
  • You already have specific drivers for your device, and the latest driver is generic.
