What are Drivers?

December 13th, 2008 No comments

Drivers are needed for operating systems to communicate with the hardware that makes up the computer.

Windows and Linux are examples of operating systems, and the hardware is anything physical that you can take off your computer or replace, such as video cards, keyboards, hard drives, the mouse, DVD player and so on.

Drivers (also called controllers) are small software programs that explain to your operating system how the hardware works. The driver is like an instruction book for your operating system. It tells the operating system what signal causes what function and explains the capabilities of the hardware (like the screen resolution or how fast the cd-writer can burn).

When you buy a new printer, you must plug it into your computer to link the two together. You also must install the printer drivers to link the two together. The drivers are located on a CD that will be in your box.  Often it will be bundled with all sorts of other software (probably image manipulation programs in the case of a printer) Keep track of this CD in case you need to reinstall the drivers, or install them on a different computer. You can also download the drivers from the manufacturer’s website.   Many manufacturers update their drivers on a regular basis and will add fixes to specific faults they hadn’t foreseen, and it’s definitely worthwhile to update your drivers for better performance.  New drivers can be added and old drivers removed reasonably easily through the Windows control panel.

Driver problems are often responsible for system problems. If your computer or device isn’t working as it should, usually it’s a driver issue. It’s important however to use the right driver. This means knowing the brand, model, and sometimes even the serial number, for your hardware. It also means installing the correct driver for the operating system you are using – don’t try to shove a windows 2000 designed driver onto an XP system because it won’t work properly and will probably damage your system.

How to upgrade a device driver

December 10th, 2008 No comments

Sometimes driver problems can be solved by updating the drivers. Updated drivers are more secure and also improve performance.

The first step is to identify the hardware.

  • Log on to your computer as an administrator
  • Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage
  • Under System Tools, click Device Manager
  • In the right window, expand any category to find the hardware. The name you find here identifies your computer hardware

To find the update for the driver, visit the manufacturer’s web site. Under their support section, you should see a driver download section. Identify your product and you will be able to download the latest driver from the manufacturer’s web site. After downloading the driver, install it and restart your machine.

If you just got a new network device on your PC, you might get the following errors after you install the driver:

  • You have purchased a new hardware, but it was not able to get the driver installed properly, causing the device not working
  • You have installed driver but then it showed “unsuccessfully installed” and “Problem code 10″ or the device will not show up
  • You have reinstalled or updated the operating system but it has difficulty in finding the driver for the existing system.

System failures due to driver errors are some of the most frustrating and probably the most complicated issues to troubleshoot and repair manually. However, anybody can resolve this driver error as easy as updating the software with the appropriate driver updates.

Since this driver update comes in a zip file, see to it that your PC also has the appropriate application, such as WinZip or WinRar, in handling compressed files.

This driver update can be downloaded from this site for free, so don’t have to worry on paying anything for getting the right update for your network adapter

Apart from this, you might as well check the other hardware for their updates using this driver scanner in order to avoid compatibility issues or system failures in the future.
