Driver Update: Notebook
Installing Drivers On Your Notebook
Notebooks are currently one of the most popular items you’ll see being lugged around by tech professionals. Smaller and more easy-to-carry than laptops, notebooks are driving a portable revolution. You can see people, mostly students, carry these little laptops around. Though weak in some areas, they perform admirably well in their main purposes: word processing and the ability to surf the Internet. You won’t be buying these for their ability to play games – you’re buying one for comfort and accessibility.
Like all computers, you’ll need to have the hardware on them running perfectly. Which means installing the proper drivers. Having the appropriate drivers for your CPU, graphics card and, most importantly, WiFi can make sure everything is running smoothly for your notebook.
Installing drivers on a notebook is often a non-issue. A lot of them come already pre-installed. This is because a lot of them come without optical drives, mostly to save on space. This can be a problem when something goes wrong – but there are convenient USB ports for you to plug in the appropriate drive or to install things from.
Problems Associated With Notebooks
Notebook drivers are more important for a notebook’s operational health than that of a desktop or a laptop. This is because notebooks are pretty closed systems, with their lack of optical drives. A single driver problem can put your notebook in serous trouble. Graphics and CPU drivers are pretty important, but what’s really important for your notebook’s operation is that its network drivers, mainly its Wireless LAN driver stays up-to-date and operational.
Another time when you need the correct drivers is when you’re installing into a newly formatted notebook. This is because you’ll need to install all the appropriate drivers and you’ll need a way to install them properly so your notebook works as intended.
