I have personally answered driver issues people are not able to find drivers for their hardware installations. Even with Win 7 which has been great about providing the drivers needed during an install more so than prior operating systems. Still there is one stray driver that may not be covered. If is most important to make sure you save your drivers to disc or store them where you can resource them if you need them. Drivers will make an install or break one. This is how important they are to your computer functioning properly.
Even purchasing a driver program can be helpful for the upgrade or just keeping up with the Joneses. I use Driver Genius there are a few of them to to had to solve driver upgrade matters or for gathering driver information and finding the proper drivers to install. Other methods are P2P programs such as Ares or torrent programs from the Internet which can get those hard to find drivers.
The best way is to keep all of your software that came with your computer for all of your drivers which are installed when you purchased the computer. Or purchased upgrade devices they come with the software drivers to install them with. Hold those like gold because they are your easiest way to reinstall having these on board will save you loads of time and frustration when something happens to your computer.
Most manufacturers of devices will have a Web Page you can access to get those drivers as well. Make a list of the drivers you have on board your computer. Spend the time to make a back up of your drivers which can be done using a driver software program will offer a backup so that you can get them later if you need them after a crash or an upgrade or a driver fails.
Most people do not like to pay for drivers, who does?
I will go to great lengths to have my drivers available this is the last resort I will go to is a pay for driver site. To many resources out there to not have to go that route. I have downloaded over 1 million drivers one because I need them to repair peoples computers. Two I have them on a DVD disc I insert into computer drives and get those hard to find drivers installed. Three you can obtain that many drivers from btjunkie.org
just type drivers in the search for any operating system you need a driver for.
There are over 1 million or more drivers out there to be had just from one torrent site. You will need a torrent software download program to download torrents. I have found two that I use the first is Bitcomet.com
and the second is Utorrent.com
. Search for the largest driver files can get for all operating systems just use the search box to find those downloads. They are free everything explained here is free no charge for any of it. Just your time and a few discs that is all.
So when you need that driver for your computer you will have it when your software is calling for them. Slip them into your DVD ROM drive, then go to devices, hardware, point to your disc more than likely the driver will be found. It is rare that those large drivers discs I downloaded will not have the drivers I need for any computer. Hope this assists you with driver issues in the future.
