How important is it to update your drivers?

Q: How important is it to update your drivers?

Hey

Sorry if this sounds like a really amateur question, but on some websites I see links to update your drivers via a download, and since you're not installing any new hardware, what's the significance of downloading something onto one of your drivers? How does your computer run better after updating? When do you know to replace the driver you have with a new one?

Preferred Solution: How important is it to update your drivers?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

ive had my laptop for 2 weeks now and with the dell instruction guide, it told me to update all the drivers, sound,audio etc etc but i never done it...so is it important and is their a way of checking if its auto updated by itself cause with a new machine you would have thought everything would be up to date.

thanks all...

Hi guys,

I'm wondering why this security patch for a zero day flaw in IE 11 is not checked by default? Surely it should be.

A:KB2964358 Important update (but not that important)

Don't know why.
I usually manually check one or right click on one & hide it.
I hide all bing desktop updates.

be truthful to the public. I have been reading a lot about people ditching windows and going to Linux. I wonder why. wow I used to love and trust windows. now I don't know anymore. you all have become something other than wonderful like I used to think.
too bad. maybe I should learn Linux too. windows is probably a habit lots of people will learn to break. scary. Be honest about your updates. ty.

I am trying to update those drivers above, and every time I try to update them through the device manager, it tells me: "Windows could not find driver software for your device"

I am not sure what they are either. I know the LG CDMA one is for my phone, but the others I don't have a clue and they look like they should be important.

Hopefully someone can help me out .

Here are my specs:

Hello, stoked to see a forum like this exists!

I was given a super old notebook that still runs but is way out of date. Intel driver utility did not work so ia m not sure what to do next. Here are the most important, as i see them, drivers I need to update.

Processor: ~Intel? P9500 45nm "Montevina" C

Bluetooth: Internal Bluetooth 2.0+ EDR
Wireless Network: Built-in Intel? PRO/Wireless 510 Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)
am i missing anything else? I do not care about the stock hardware drivers for the webcam and fingerprint etc.. and i already updated the Nvidia card

A:Which drivers are most important and how do i identify them?

Welcome to the forum,

Yeah, it looks like all the drivers from Sager are XP or Vista.

If you want to do this and upload the file,

System Information File - Create in Windows

We can see if anything is needed.

That being said, to answer your question about importance, by processor above I guess you are referring to the chipset?

That would be the first, the network and sound drivers, card reader.

It looks like this might be useful too, Intel Robson Technology Driver for Windows, if your laptop has it.

Hello all

When executing Windows Update, I experienced that one important update is not automatically selected to download and install.


I like to understand why this is?

Also I like to understand if I should always install all important updates, even the ones not by default selected?

In this example, the not selected update refers to MS09-054 security update. Is this a manual installed security update?
Does it not apply to me?

Thanks a lot in advance!

A:Windows Update, important update not selected

Not all users experience the issue that this update resolves. MS is providing you the oportunity to use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" logic.

I applied the update even though I have no evidence that I need it. Yet.

Some updates will adversely affect some users. Not applying updates may adversely affect you.

What can you do? My advice - apply all updates. Unless you have a good reason not to.

I am getting an Update message from my Nvidia Gforce Experience Software , regarding a New Game Ready Driver Version 355.60

I currently have a Game Ready Update , Version 353.62 which i updated on 20th July 2015.Just so you know , i also updated my Nvidia graphics Driver (Nvidia Gforce Experience forced me to update Cuz it stopped me from doing any editing in Nvidia Control Panel.So after i accepted the Updates installation , i was allowed to edit Nvidia Control Panel again) , which is now letting me play games at their MAX.For instance , i am playing Assassin's Creed Unity , with TXAA Anti Aliasing ON.

So , anyway , do i really need to install this latest Nvidia Gforce Game Ready Driver Version 355.60 update ?

A:Are Nvidia G Force Game Ready Drivers Updates important ?

You don't have to install it if your current drivers are running fine, however most gamers like to keep their graphics drivers up to date. If you decide to udate the drivers follow NVIDIA GeForce Experience: A Beginner's Guide to perform a clean install.

Personally I like to update my graphics drivers manually, but if Experience is your preferred method then that is the best route to take.

A:Fresh windows home premium 64bit install, important drivers are gone!

I'd go to Samsung support site with your good PC and locate the Ethernet driver for your particular model. Get it on a USB stick and install it to the PC with the driver problems.

I wouldn't be in a panic just because I had some yellow exclamation points in Device Manager. Instead, I'd investigate what expected functionality is missing.

Then possibly go back to Samsung and look for drivers to fix the missing functionality.

Hi everyone, I have been having problems installing the kb976932 update for weeks now. I feel like I tried everything. Im about ready to take a sledge hammer to this thing!

My main question, is this really that important?

I am mainly trying to install a printer to my computer which is unsuccessful and one of the troubleshooting suggestion by the printer manufacturer is to make sure the Windows updates are installed. Idk if this could be the problem or not.

A:Is the kb976932 update really that important?

This is Service Pack 1, so it very well could be the answer. I'm not saying that it is because I can't know.

Here's an official Microsoft website for Service Pack 1:

Source: Information about Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

The official Microsoft website for Service Pack 1 has a link to download Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center:

You'll see a big list of files to download. Here's some text that explains what each one is for:

Hello,
I'am downloading very important files but I'm afraid that my computer might switch off because windows update gave me a notice that the computer will switch off after an update and the maximum amount of time you can postpone the computer to switch off is 4 hours (That's what I done). I will not be able to use the computer for more than 4 hours.
So this is what I did>> I think I turned windows update off by choosing the option of 'Never check for update (not recommended).

Now the question is> Will my computer switch off within 4 hours after I leave it?
If it will, then how can I make it not switch off.

PLEASE NOTE: The download is NOT resumable.
EDIT: I'm using Windows 7.

Thank you for reading.

A:[IMPORTANT] Windows Update

In my experience if you are still using the computer at the end of that 4 hours it will give you another warning and you will be able to postpone it again for another 4 hours. Then repeat process until the download is done. I am not sure if turning updates off will have stopped the countdown.

I have Secunia on my Acer Windows 8 laptop. According to latest scan today it's telling me I need an update for Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 4.x That I don't understand since I've updated the laptop every time updates have been offered unless Microsoft failed to send it. (However, I haven't undated to Windows 8.1 yet -- I always hang back on that kind of major update to see what happens with everybody else.) I might be savy about a heck of a lot of things to do with computers but I don't know anything about that particular program.

A:Might Be Missing An Update That Could Be Important

Microsoft only publishes new updates for Windows on Tuesdays at 3am but unless if you don't install those updates those updates will be offered to you later if you choose to do so manually. Windows by default installs security important updates by automatically. To see if that update was installed go to the control panel select "Windows Update" then select "View Update History" Windows is great at managing updates on it's own you can also select not to automatically install Windows updates, and choose which ones to update and install. There is no need for 3rd party software to do this for you.

A:wd ses device in the important update

I didn't get one. Did you install the SSD or did it come with your PC? If you installed it, it could be that the drivers from your old(possibly a WD?) and any registry keys are picked up by Windows update. I've noticed with Ccleaner, it shows a program that is already uninstalled sometimes in Cleaner Applications tab. I then have to go into the registry and do a recursive search for left over keys so it will stop showing up.
Or are you using an USB HDD?

Good morning,

Several weeks ago I received an update for Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5. Unfortunately when WinPatrol asked permission to accept these new updates, I mistakenly clicked no.

I have looked for ways to undo my mistake: I checked my list of installed updates and found 2 Hotfixes for .Net Framework 3.5, KB953595 and KB958484. Also the Firefox addons window shows a new addition: .Net Framework Assistant 1.0. I have searched for the appropriate updates on the Microsoft Update website, but only became lost and confused.

I believe these .Net Framework updates are important for my computer and should be reinstalled correctly. However, I do not know which updates to uninstall nor the correct .Net update to reinstall.

Will someone please advise?

Thank you,

Follow the instructions below please.System File Checker (SFC)Follow the instructions below to run a SFC scan on your system and to provide the CBS log in your next reply;On Windows Vista & 7, click on the Windows Start Menu, then enter cmd in the search box, right-click on the cmd icon and select Run as AdministratorOn Windows 8, drag your cursor in the bottom-left corner, and right-click on the metro menu preview, then select Command Prompt (Admin);On Windows 8.1, right click on the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner and select Command Prompt (Admin);Enter the command below and press on Enter;sfc /scannowNote: There's a space between "sfc" and "/scannow";Once the scan is complete, enter the command below and press on Entercopy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"A file called cbs.txt will have appeared on your Desktop. Upload the file on Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive and post the download URL for it here;Note: Please note that the CBS.log is volatile, which means that if you don't upload it after the SFC scan is completed, it won't contains the information from the scan anymore. So archive it and upload it as soon as you can.

I know this isn't the 'Email' section. However, more people watch this section so I'm posting here. I started to experience 'Mail' problems in my new, (Jan.), notebook with Win8. The emails I sent were going into the Outbox folder & remaining there. I figured out how to delete them by turning off the Wi-Fi connection. But then someone in the forum told me about updating my apps. I hadn't physically updated any apps since I bought the notebook. Suffice to say after the 'Mail' app had been updated everything started to work ok plus new features which made it easier to operate. So important to update all your apps!!!!

A:Important to update 'MAIL' app & other apps.

Hello Robin,

Yes indeed. It's important to keep one's Store apps in Windows 8 updated to keep them patched with the latest bug and security fixes. As you discovered, they may even stop working properly if not kept updated.

Hi Desmodus


You could:

1) Ignore the failed update for a while & expect a patched update to fix it in a week or so, or -->

2) Try shutting off the Windows Update service, clearning WU temp files, and then restarting the WU service, as in the Microsoft procedure quoted below:

Quote:

1. Open Administrative Tools --- by clicking Start, Control Panel, System and Maintenance, and then Administrative Tools.
2. Double-click Services. Administrator permission required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3. Right-click the Windows Update service, and then click Stop.

To delete temporary update files

A:Cannot Install 'Important' Security Update

I have no idea what may be causing your problem, but you could try getting the update from the Windows Catalog site and see what happens; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323166/en-us

If this works, you will be able to download an .exe file which you just doubleclick on to install. Be sure to read the instructions before using this method.

Alternatively, you could check your Add/Remove list first, just in case the update is already there, or you could run the Secunia Online Inspector, which will confirm whether or not the patch is missing. You will need an up to date version of Sun Java before the Inspector will run; http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/

Hello Forum,

One of my Windows updates (one of nine) failed earlier, but when I opened up my Update window again to see if I could retry, it doesn't give you the option to do it (first time in five years with this computer it has happened - ALL my updates have been successful). It shows the failed update in the Update History, but does not give you the option to install it again. How can I try to install that update again even though I can't locate the option to do it? Thank you.

A:vista wont download and important update

In order to fix this failed update, we must first clean up your .NET framework installation. Download and run this file. It will remove the .NET framework from your computer so that we can reinstall it later (and solve the non-installing update). My sister's laptop did the same, as well as our home desktop (failed update). But don't worry, it is very easy to fix.After running this cleanup tool, it will ask you to reboot. Please do so.Next, download and install this file. This will reinstall the .NET framework onto your computer.After another reboot, download and install this file. This will update the .NET framework to what it should be (what the automatic update was failing to do).Now, check Windows Update again, and see if anything shows up.

A:changing update settings to important updates only--help?

First of all, you don't need to Install Windows optional updates.
Secondly, you should change your Windows Update Setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them".
 
After you have changed the Windows Update Setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them", Windows Update will search again for available updates.
When the search is complete, look for KB3035583, and hide this update.
 
The Disadvantage is that you have to manually search for Windows Updates.
But the Advantage is that you have more control of which of the Windows Updates is being Installed on your Laptop.

Hi,

I have a problem with updates that try to install every time PC restart.
They give me everytime error code 80070490 and if I try to press Try again then give me error code 8024AFFF.
I try to solve the problem with Microsoft FixIt, then update was installed succesfully, but after restart they try to install it again (everytime the same update) and give the same error.

I found some solution on the net that not work for me:
1. Windows Update error 80070490
2. Error code 0x80070490 when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates
3. Code Error 80070490 checking for Windows Updates - Microsoft Community

I not use first option becouse I not have original DVD, I have a PC with preinstalled system Windows 7 Home Premium.

Anyone have any ideo how to solve this problem?

Hi,

On my updates settings page it is stuck on "Install updates automatically (recommended)". The box is faded out and I am unable to click on the drop-down. I'm sure my updates never used to be automatic...Is there a way to change this setting?

A:trouble changing my important update settings

Welcome
First make sure that you are in an administrative account. If you are create a new administrator account yours may be corrupt. If that does not help.

Disable the UAC and boot. Then enable it again, see if things are better. If they are not try the hidden administrator.

I was doing a clean install and during the updates, I had one, KB2965788, that failed to install and hasn't reappeared for a second attempt.

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64. The error code is WindowsUpdate_80070308.

I'm not sure if this update is required for my system configuration or if there is some issue that needs to be detected and resolved.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello all,

The Action Center from Windows 7 has an important message:

Update avast! antivirus (Important)

I updated the avast program, and I updated the definitions, but still the red cross appears in Action Center.

I would like to know if there is a solution to make this message go away.
I do not like to turn off this message, I rather like to make it work properly.

Thanks a lot in advance!

1. I get the message "Windows can't update important files and services while the system is using them. Save any open files and restart the computer. and then try to check the new updates." and I am asked to reboot
2. Update history says Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition 1.139.1946.0) Successful Important Date installed 14/11/2012 (today)
3. After restart: update history still indicates the above installation was successful yet there is also an indication that "most recent check for updates - never, updates were installed - never". Red x message tells me to check for updates again but then loop back to no.1 message.
4. Tried unchecking all services that were not Microsoft and restarted but problem remains.
Any way out of this loop? Thanks.

A:can't update important files and services while the system is using

First of all - reset the services to their normal settings.
then


Open Windows Update
Click on Change Settings
Select 'Never Update...'
Click OK
exit Windows Update
Now open Windows update again
Click on Change Settings
Select 'Update automatically'
Click OK

My laptop currently has all the default update setting checked so it installs important changing settings only--help? updates update to all optional recommended and important updates Is it okay to change the setting to install only important updates What are the recommended and optional updates I will not be getting What are the pros and cons of changing this setting I am wanting to do it because I do not want windows I do actually already have the windows update installed in my update list It apparently downloaded in December However my laptop never upgraded to windows I have read that for some people their computers randomly upgraded to windows without them telling it to but for some people that never happens I am hoping I can keep it from happening by changing my update setting to download important updates only But I only want to do that if it won't cause any problems I do know I can uninstall and hide the windows update number but in all the research I did nearly everyone who said they did that said the update changing update settings to important updates only--help? installed again anyway and there is actually no way to get rid of it Thank you

A:changing update settings to important updates only--help?

I don't let it download anything myself, and I uncheck the box for give me recommended updates the same as important, these are my settings,



And with this tutorial I've set it to disable OS upgrades,

Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

Not sure if you have pro version, if you do you can use either method, if you just have the home version then you can only use option one.

I haven't had anything forced on me and I am in control of what gets downloaded, I install them all anyway except for silverlight and skype.

You have to do it manually but at least you know when and what you are installing.

I'm not sure there is setting that you are looking for, only install important updates doesn't seem be an option.

Separating the recommended from important by unchecking that box in the blue outline will give you only important updates in the important section.

As for the W10 update already downloaded, I think there is a way to get rid of it, I can't remember right now I'm sure someone else will come along with more info.

DO NOT let windows update dl and instal drivers for hardware devices such as video cards, sound cards automatically. If it detects an update for a device, go download it from the manufacturers website directly, (nvidea users, nvidea has a nice little auto-detect feature on their site so you cant get the wrong driver). only let windows update dl and install updates for microsoft products only.

I don't use Skype. I uninstalled it. Windows Update keeps sending updates and marking them as 'important.' If I run the update I find I need to uninstall the program again.

I'd like reassurance that I can safely ignore these updates.

It makes sense to me, but software has gotten complex enough that I want to be sure that this update only updates Skype for Windows and that failure to implement it does not leave a gaping hole in Windows 7.

thanks

A:Error 800B0100-Important update categorised as not applicable to PC

Windows Vista(tm) is Windows6.0
Windows 7(tm) is Windows6.1
Windows 8(tm) is Windows6.2
Windows 8.1(tm) is Windows6.?

The version numbers, rather than the trade name reveal which version of the Source Code forms the base for the OS.
This was fine up to Vista, because they weren't similar... and then MS went silly and started TM'ing apparent version numbers

It does get confusing - and I really can't offhand remember what the version number for Windows 8.1 is!

....back to your problem.

It's likely caused by corruption in the SoftwareDistribution folder.

There are two ways to attempt to deal with it - the clever way, and the quick way.

One preserves most/all your Windows Update history, while the other trashes it (but updates are still installed) - neither are guaranteed to work.

Your choice - how much of a tearing hurry are you in to get back to what passes for normality?

Let me know and we'll work on it

I was notified today of one important update, KB2881030, but checking shows this to be for the 32 bit version of Office 2010. I have only MS Office Home and Student 2007 on my 64bit computer. Further, the update has a prerequisite mentioned, i.e., Microsoft Office 2010, Service Pack 2, definitely not on my computer. Finally, the update's "more information" did not mention any files in Office 2007 that were involved. I won't install this update unless I learn I need it, but I'm wondering if there are others being offered this apparently inappropriate update. Anyone else involved?

Hey All,

There seems to be an issue with MS latest security update for IE 11 on Windows 7. For MANY, not just me. All the other updates installed fine, last "patch Tuesday" but this one did not go through the automatic update process. Others are having the same issue. If you read here, it seems to be more of an "optional update." but MS did not push it through automatic updates on last Tuesday's patches. See here:

http://www.landzdown.com/security-a...ID=0c64b9d53ca25bbe63526e3968971320#msg165985

What's going on? Is this patch expected to go through at a later time, moved to optional, or what? I thought that ALL Windows Updates classified as important as long as Automatic Windows Update was turned on, went through?

A:Windows Update INCLUDES Motherboard Drivers and BIOS Update on M2A-VM?

I have the same board on another pc.

You only need to download and install only that which would make your setup current.

You really only need to update the bios if you will be moving up to a newer processor that is not currently supported by the current bios or if the newer bios fixes a known problem.

You need the latest motherboard chipset driver. (I would install this first if you haven't already)

You need the latest LAN driver.

The audio driver you can either download from Asus or from RealTek.

A:Any way to hide "you have hidden important updates" WGA nag banner in Windows Update?

Description of Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA)

It's pretty basic. The core of it is, they are a company that sells computer Operating System software and don't want to be ripped off. And to prevent rip-offs from updating beneficial security and other support they provide FREE, they require you run the WGA.

That isn't unreasonable.

Don't like it? Get Linux or whatever.

Presently, Skype 5.10 is on my computer. But I also have a window's update (Skype 5.10 for Windows (KB2727727)). Problem is that this update won't install and every time I go to shut the computer down, I have to scroll through closing choices (shut down, hibernate, sleep, etc) and as whether or not I want the update installed. As this update can't presently be installed and it's a PITA when going to Sleep as I have to choose between Install Updates and Sleep, how can I get this update to go away without installing it so that I can get to my closing functions without having to muck with Install Update now?

A:Deleting an "important" but unwanted window's update alert?

Hmm - I'd be inclined to uninstall Skype completely, and reinstall from a fresh download.

However, before doing anything that drastic....

A:Windows Update loops with a "Restart your computer to install important updates"

Thanks Alex
I had already tried the steps in the post you linked.
In the end I have had to reinstall Windows 7 over the top (keeping all settings) and this has fixed the issue with Windows Updates.
It is frustrating that I could not find a solution as I do not like glossing over the issues without first finding a solution but unfortunately it was not my pc and time was against me.
Thanks for all the replies.

Hello everyone. Just a small query. Is it fine if I update my ATI drivers via CCC update utility or should I manually download the latest drivers, uninstall the old drivers (driver sweeper and all) and then install the new ones?

My CCC downloaded and installed the new drivers last night. PC is working fine, but just out of curiosity, is it OK?

A:Is it safe to update ATI drivers via CCC update utility?

- can't see a problem, the AMD link will direct you to the latest and most stable compatible driver available for your card..

- I'm assuming that you aren't messing about with overclocking and the like..

KB3102429 (Aerbaijani Manat and the Georgian Lari currency symbols added) shows as "Important Update" but it is not pre-checked for install on any of my computers as are normally all the other "Important Updates". Anyone know why, or have any issues with this recent end-of-year update (that does not seem so important)?

A:KB3102429 "Important" Update ?

Hi
No I believe it is actually a recommended update which it might show up as important if the box is checked in setting to give you Recommended updates the same way as Important ones,
Uncheck the box and it will appear in the Optional section instead.

I was wondering whether everyone here updates their drivers simply with what becomes available on the Windows Update site or do you download them seperately from each of the manufacturers?

I'm curious whether Microsoft even updates Windows Update with manufacturer drivers when they release new ones. Curious what everyone's take is.

Thanks

Hi,

Is there an easy way to update drivers for your PC/Laptop?

I have download various Driver Update Software over the years to try and update my PC drivers but they all do the scan and list which drivers are out of date but then as usual you have to pay to download the drivers from their sites.

I have tried using the update driver feature in windows xp for the drivers that the various Driver Update programs say are out of date but it never finds an update and says that I have the latest version. I have been on some of the manufactures sites but can never work out particualr driver I need and how to install them.

Correct me if I am wrong here, are you saying that windows are asking you to insert your Xp installation disc, just so that you can update your drivers ?

Please can anyone help me step by step how to update all my drivers?
I m sory i m really lost with this updating drivers updating thing.
And i have some question for you :

how many driver there is in a computer?

i try to download this network adapter driver rtl8164c(p)8111c(p) PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC from realtek semiconductor Corp but i m not finding.
please any help will be apreciated.

thanks

A:drivers update

First question. How many drivers in a computer? A lot. There many software drivers for just about everything. If your asking about the network adapter, there should only be one driver.

As for your other question, where can I find it? Are you asking where to find on the web? If so, look at the manufacturer's web site. However, I have this feeling you have downloaded it and can not find it on your computer. If this is so try this:

For Firefox....Click on "tools" (at top), then options. A box will come up. Look under "Main" and look at downloads and where it says "save file to." This will tell where it is.
For Internet explorer: Tools, then internet options. A box will come up. Look at "General Tab" Look for Browsing History and click on "settings" button. It will show pathway to Temp Folder.

Another option is to update the driver. Go to Control Panel>system>hardware>device manager>network adapters, then find the driver for it and click on "update."

Hope this helps.

A:How do i know what drivers do i have and how do i update them?

If your computer is running fine, why update them? As long as you have the latest Microsoft Windows and anti-virus/anti-spyware updates, I would leave the rest alone.
