Clarification 18 outdated drivers

How can this be on such a new system? They say it's free but all they do is scan and tell you have a million problems and then want money to fix. It's cheap, deceitful and frustrating. I can't figure out each and every driver to update. Lots of things have never worked right. I feel I've been majorly ripped off. VISTA!

    Are you on the walmart fixa team? They want money just to email tech and I am under warranty.

  • anitamarm Dec 06, 2008

    Of course I have contacted Acer. They say they are only responsible for problems if I cannot use internet. Hardware. If it works they don't cover anything else. Sorry about the walmart question. Their site hooked me up with you. Fixya?

Vista has it's ups and downs, and it really has gotten a bad rap in general - some deserving and some not so much.

The important thing to remember is that you already bought your computer and nothing legit will keep asking you for more money.

You might have mal-ware on your system that I can help you remove.
Also using a different browser will help to stop pop ups and that sort of thing.

Download Spy-bot and run that to remove any mal-ware (malicious software).

I use Firefox as my browser and I get ZERO pop ups!

Let me know what I can do to help.

    No, I do not work for Wal-Mart.

    I am assuming you bought you rpc there?
    IF you are under warranty, have you called the manufacturer yet?

    Also, it looks like you have 3 threads open on this same issue - you
    should stick to only 1 thread for posting so the information you give
    and receive won't be repeated and make you more frustrated.

They might be outdated. I suggest that you install RadarSync and scan your computer with it. You can use the same software to update the outdated drivers in your computer.

Unlock gateway touchpad


Hello,
Your touchpad's driver might be outdated that's why it's acting like that. Drivers are small software which make the hardware parts communicate with the operating system. If the drivers get outdated, then it won't function well.
You can get the update from the website of your computer's manufacturer. If you want to cover all drivers, then you can scan your computer with RadarSync (www.radarsync.com) so that you will know which drivers are outdated and you can use the same software to update them all.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I hope this helps!

How can I update all the divers on the Aptiva E Series 240? Computer is very slow. I did a driver scan and it tells me there are 11 drivers to be updated. Is there any way I can update them for free, and...


What did you use to do a driver scan? A lot of times, those programs are a way to take your money. That PC is very old and probably does not have any updated drivers. It is not slow because of the drivers, it is slow because the technology is outdated.

if you are not sure what drivers are missing you can download a driver update tool which does a free scan to check for the outdated drivers on the system. for eg: http://www.liutilities.com/products/driverscanner/  and then either you can manually download the drivers or register with the software to automatically download the drivers if you have a working internet connection

Acer Aspire T690


Anita,

No one at FixYa sold you a warranty, as far as I know.

Please don't neglect a bottom-line idea here: If your drivers are working, you may have no real reason to update. Unless you're playing lots of games or something, it should not matter.

I strongly suspect someone told you have 18 outdated drivers -- who told you, and what did they tell you? Are they trying to sell you something?

An 18-month-old computer may have quite a few outdated pieces of software, and also some outdated drivers.

You can update your drivers and software in a number of ways. All have some ... problems, but they're worth a try. Secunia offers, for home users, a free product called PSI; that will look for outdated software and typically offer a download link. Please read everything it tells you carefully. Secunia PSI may default to running every time you restart the computer; that annoys me, and I've disabled it, but your mileage may vary.

A free product called RadarSync will also try to check for outdated drivers. I've had some up-and-down problems with this; sometimes I'll have version 10 of something and it'll tell me I need to update to version 5, for example. But sometimes, sometimes, the drivers are legitimate.

The only thing that should matter is that you're regularly getting Windows updates (see a Start: Control Panel) by the same name, and you've got anti-virus software (and probably anti-spyware software) installed that's of your choice. I use AVG Free Edition; others like it and others loathe it. There are plenty of options for you out there.

Scanned 18 outdated drivers. I have never been happy with this system, bought the extended warrant also. Still covered. I don't think I should have to pay for new drivers. Not when system is still so new.


usually this is a driver update service ythat "finds outdated drivers" and asks you to pay to fix it.  you are paying for the service not the drivers. <br><br> If you have windows service pack two or better installed just click windows key pause buttons at the same time then go to hardware then device manager.  <br><br>im there just right click the device and hit update driver.  This will update most devices to the newest drivers.<br><br> Although the only time yo really need to update drivers is when stuff isnt fucntioning properly.  Ive found updating sometimes causes undo problems.
