How to update drivers using Device Doctor?




How to update drivers of a computer running Microsoft Windows Operating System using Device Doctor (a freeware).

First of all, download and install Device Doctor {Click Here to download}. Once it's downloaded, install it by double-clicking the downloaded setup file (see below):



A new window will pop up similar to this:



Click "Next" and on the next page, select "I Accept the Agreement" and click "Next"




Again on the next page, click "Next"



This will take few seconds...




The Device Doctor will automatically open up, if not go to desktop and double click the "Device Doctor" icon.



Click the "Begin Scan" button to start scanning for outdated drivers, wait for few seconds:




The final screen should look more or less similar to this:



The lists shown at the bottom of the window are the updates available for those devices' drivers.
Click one of the button "Download Update" to download the latest available, in this demonstration, I've clicked the "Download Update" next to "Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC...."




A new page will open up on your browser, locate this section:



and click the "Download Driver Installer" to begin downloading.

Download and install the file, that's all, your Realtek Ethernet driver is updated to the latest version.

Repeat the same process until you update all the drivers of your devices.

There are many more tools like Driver Genuis, Driver Max, Driver Magician etc.. but since this Device Doctor is a freeware, anyone can use it and I am sure that it's very effective for critical updates.
Enjoy with the Freeware and stay updated... I will update with more free tools...

Your comments are highly appreciated.

    could not find media device


    Updating audio drivers Select one of the options below to locate the available audio drivers if you already changed the operating system and you are experiencing sound problems.
    • Go to the HP Drivers and Downloads page and search for updated drivers for your model. Be sure to select the correct operating system.
    Or download Conexant High-Definition Audio Driver » ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp40501-41000/sp40762.exe
    • If the computer is upgraded to Vista, use HP Update to scan for updated drivers. To use HP Update, click Start , All Programs , HP , HP Update , and then follow the on-screen instructions.
    • If HP has not released specific audio drivers for your operating system, use the Microsoft Windows Update utility, or search the Microsoft web site for generic drivers for Vista. To use Windows Update, click Start , type update into the search field, select Windows Update from the list when it becomes available, click Check for updates , and then install any available updates.
