What does updating drivers do

24 Mar

Updating your computer's drivers and other updates can resolve problems, improve the performance, and increase the stability of your computer.

Computer BIOS updates should only be run when you are having compatibility issues with your hardware or you feel that your computer hardware is not performing as it should.

When NVIDIA releases a new product, over time software developers learn more about the architecture, and are able to gain better performance from this architecture through updated drivers.

Visiting your computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer page allows you to see if any BIOS updates are available for your motherboard and what the updates will fix.

Updating the drivers for your CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, or other CD device may help with the overall performance and compatibility of the drive.

I have been reading about the importance of updating, if required, the various device drivers within in a system.

As I understand it, I can update drivers by identifying the driver that may require updating and then, by accessing the manufacturers web site, and determining if there are any updates.
