If you want to keep your computer in tip-top shape, you should keep all your device drivers up to date.
There are two ways to update your drivers: manually and automatically.
Update your drivers manually — you can update your driver manually by going to the hardware manufacturer’s website and searching for the latest driver. But if you take this approach, be sure to choose the driver that’s compatible with the exact model number of your hardware, and your version of Windows.
Update your drivers automatically — If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update all your drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
