    how to keep drivers up to date?


    Hi I'm fairly new and just wanted to see if there is an easy way to keep all drivers up to date instead of manually checking one by one on the support site. I just wanted to ask what do other people use to check for updates to outdated drivers?

    Well when I installed a driver this is what I did. I went to asus support site and then to my specific computer and they have all the drivers there. Then I went one by one to see which were out of date. So for my touchpad it was out of date so I clicked on global to download it. Once downloaded it is in zip file open the one that says setup the type is application. I opened it and it told me I first have to uninstall the previous driver so I went to control panel to uninstall the touchpad driver and then I installed the new one and now it works even better. Check your manufacturers support site if you still can't figure it out call them up and talk to support. I was just looking for an easier way then checking one by one that's all.

    For me personally, I install the OS and if the hardware is working and functional, without major issue..I just leave it the heck alone. I don't frequently update the drivers. Only when I am experiencing a problem and it's clear a driver update fixes the issue.

    Oh OK yea I would leave it alone as well but I kept getting BSOD blue screen upon wake up from sleep mode with error message Driver IRQL not less or equal athw8x.sys
    I tried updating the wireless driver than any other driver that was out of date I just got windows 8 so they are fixing many bugs with it.
