Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Device drivers are specialized software that allow a computer system to interact correctly with a piece of hardware. Many device drivers come pre-installed with Windows XP, and you may have added more when installing new video cards, webcams or CD drives. Updating a device driver helps the hardware remain compatible with newer software and often fixes bugs and other performance problems. Windows XP can automatically update device drivers from the Internet using the Device Manager Utility included with the operating system.
Open the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Open the "Administrative Tools" icon in Classic View, or click "Performance and Maintenance" and then "Administrative Tools" in Category View.
Double-click on the "Computer Management" shortcut. Click on "Device Manager" in the "System Tools" section.
Click to expand the section containing the driver you want to update. Right-click on the drive and click "Properties." Open the "Driver" tab.
Click the "Update Driver" button. If you have performed this action before, the system may automatically start searching the Internet for an update. Otherwise click the "Yes, this time only" or "Yes, now and every time I connect a device" radio button to authorize the Internet connection. Click "Next" to continue.
Leave the "Install the software automatically" radio button selected and click "Next" again. Wait while Windows searches the Windows Update website for the correct software.
Click "Next" and follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the update. If you already have the newest version of the software, windows won't present any update options.
