Updating device drivers from time to time is good as it could improve hardware performance, add features or controls and improve stability and life. The Device Manager in Windows will let you change hardware settings, identify device drivers for each device, view and change settings and properties, and install, uninstall, update, roll back, enable, disable the drivers. Microsoft Updates will also let you install or update device drivers required for your system. And then again, freeware like Device Doctor or shareware like Driver Scanner will automate the process and help you identify, download, install or update drivers easily.
The recommended option would however be to go to the manufacturer’s website and then search for and download the device drivers your system requires.
