Suggestions About Where and How to Download Drivers

Before updating a driver, or installing a driver for a hardware device, you'll need to download the driver from somewhere in internet. You have probably downloaded files before. The problem is in finding the best and the right place to download the driver or those drivers. This is important for you to get the best and the most suitable drivers for your hardware.

There are many driver download and driver update sources and websites exist in internet, but they are not all created equal. Knowing the best place to download drivers (such as sound driver, and any windows drivers) could save you a lot of time and frustration.

Below is a list I suggest you about driver download sources in order of preference:
  1. Download Drivers Directly From the Hardware Manufacturer
  2. Download Drivers From a Driver Download Website
  3. Use Windows Update as a Driver Download Source
  4. Download Drivers From Third-Party Developers
May those tips and suggestions help.
