If you are confused on why you should do this then read on and I will tell you why you should get your drivers updated immediately!
Why should I update my drivers? How do I do it? Does it cost any money? What hardware should I update?
The most important reason to update your driver is bug fixes. There are a lot of bugs in almost any sort of software made. Your driver manufacturer surely has caught some of these and fixed them then released them in the form of drivers. There is also the manner of compatibility. Some hardware just won’t run without a driver.
You do it by going to the manufacturer of the hardware’s website and downloading the driver. It should have installation instructions on how to install it.
The download should be free from the manufacture’s website. I am yet to come across some which are not.
The hardware to be updated include your video card and other accessories like your sound card. Also, you need to update your disc drive and anything else of the sort.
That is how you go about getting your drivers updated!
