Subscriber William wrote me to ask about updating his computers’ drivers.
What are drivers? They’re software that allows Windows to talk to your computer’s hardware – like the video card, the printer, the USB ports, the Ethernet port…
Thanks for the newsletter. Please tell me the best way to update drivers. I have a Sony desktop with XP and a laptop with Windows 7 ultimate.
Happy New Year.
I wrote back to William to tell him that I used to update drivers by going and getting individual drivers when I decided I needed one.
Now, I use DriverScanner from Uniblue. There’s a free scanner which will tell you which drivers are out of date, but you purchase a license to have it do the real work of finding the drivers, downloading them, and installing them.
