How often should I update my drivers?
The general recommendation is to update your drivers if you notice any hardware or performance issues. Device manufacturers create new drivers and update their functionality quite often, so updating drivers regularly has a positive impact on the overall performance of your computer and improves compatibility with new software and hardware.
What to do if Driver Updater cannot find a specific driver?
If the application cannot offer an update to a particular driver, this usually means there is no suitable version in the database for your device at the moment. The same driver can perform differently depending on the OS version and components used, so Driver Updater will show only recommended updates based on your system configuration. In such cases, we recommend contacting our PC Help Desk for live support - our technicians will carefully check your components and install the required driver manually.
How to make sure that drivers were actually updated?
To confirm that a specific driver was updated, head over to your Windows Device Manager (right-click on This PC → select Properties → click Device Manager), locate the corresponding category, find the device with the driver you want to check, click on Properties, and select the Events tab. If there is an event with the timestamp that corresponds to the date of the update and with the “Device configured” description, it means that the update took place and was successful.
Is updating drivers via a third-party tool safe?
Driver Updater updates your drivers the same way as if you updated them manually. However, thanks to its extensive database of drivers and special algorithms, the program is able to scan more than 100 devices connected to your PC in a couple of minutes, check their drivers, and update those that are outdated. Driver Updater installs only official drivers made specifically for each device being updated.
