Tips on Smart Computer Updating

One of the biggest questions for those people who do not have a lot of computer knowledge is to understand what are the drivers and what they are used for. Being this one of the most relevant topics in the computer world I have decided to write this article to make it clear for everybody.

A driver or controller is a software (program), made up of a code that allows it to perform a specific function, i. e. it is more than a set of instructions developed to fulfill a task.

If I Don’t Have Them, How Can I Get Them?

In most cases, drivers are delivered when you buy your computer, they are delivered on CD`S included in the boxes. If you don’t have them on your CD you can consult the bitdrivers.com website and in many cases, they give you the option of downloading the drivers you need, but to do this you must be very clear about the exact reference and model of the machine you have.

In the latter, you can search Google to find out for sure something or use some of the tools to update drivers that are so abundant on the network, later I will share some of these utilities for them to use.

I hope that this article will make this issue a little bit clearer.

3 Tips on Smart Computer Updating

TIP 1: General rule for drivers: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Avoid updating drivers simply because new versions are released. According to our personal experience, updating the drivers involves much more risks than many other operations that we have seen in the Computer Optimization Course, much more risks than updating programs or operating systems through Windows Update.

TIP 2: If you are dealing with driver updates reported as important by Windows Update, please proceed with the update.

In this case, the updates are tested and do not cause any problems for your computer (at least this applies to all updates also to the operating system managed through Windows Update).

TIP 3: Always talking about driver updates coming from Windows Update, set the automatic drivers updates through Windows Update, doing this way you will automatically update the recommended drivers.

Also, periodically check the list of optional updates to see if additional driver updates appear in the list to install.
