What is a good website for examining hardware drivers and downloading updated versions? I have seen driver dectective as well as driver agent.
There’s no substitute for going directly to the hardware’s maker for drivers. Most download sites are out of date, and may even install the wrong driver for your system. There’s also no reason to update a driver unless you have issues you need to fix. Possible exception might be video drivers which can sometimes offer a slight boost in performance, but all driver updates have the potential for introducing new problems. If it ain’t broke…
Thanks for the info. I am having some driver issues. I haven’t been able to exactly pinpoint the trouble, but the problem involves a usb 2.0 cardbus for the pcmcia slot.
Bye the way, this is a great forum.
… all driver updates have the potential for introducing new problems.
If you’re going to be updating drivers, even if you are confident with what you are doing, at least make a backup of essential files first.
