    Windows drivers


    Hei. I have just installed windows 8 and Windows automatically installed my drivers like sound..graphics and so on. Should i install the drivers from the manufacturer's site too? or let windows install my drivers?

    It is always best to check the manufacturers website for drivers 1st as Microsoft tend to lag behind a bit as I have found out in the past....you could be missing out on newer drivers !

    MS drivers are also usually just very basic and devoid of programs that usually come from OEM. First check at that particular manufacturers site for newest drivers but start with the MB and chipset drivers.
