Updating old laptop
If you’re a gamer, you will want the latest graphics drivers.But, after you download and install them once, you’ll be notified when new drivers are available so you can download and install them.While they are tempting, we recommend that you don’t use driver-update utilities.In general, we don’t recommend updating hardware drivers unless you have a reason to.The driver for the SD card reader that came built into your computer is probably just fine.Even if the manufacturer does offer a slightly newer version, you probably won’t notice the difference.This is also the place you’ll generally find BIOS and UEFI firmware updates, but we don’t recommend installing these unless you have a really good reason to do so.
If you have a laptop or a prebuilt desktop PC, go to its manufacturer’s website and look up the driver-download page for your specific model of computer.
You don’t need a driver-updating utility because Windows has one built-in.
On Windows 7, 8, and 8.1, hardware drivers appear in the Windows Update interface as an optional update.
For example, go to your motherboard manufacturer’s website and look up the specific model of motherboard to find your motherboard drivers.
Repeat this process for each individual hardware component.
