While I’d like to guess that over 98% of the computers that I have worked on that are privately owned; the drivers were out of date or missing critical drivers that other drivers rely on.
Here’s what I mean. If you decide to update your wireless drivers, don’t go to the manufacturer of the computer, look for drivers from the hardware website. Don’t download any program that offers to update your drivers. Update your drivers manually. Open the device manager, look for the device you want to update, navigate to the hardware manufacturer’s website, download the zip file, unzip the file, click update driver, select let me choose and point to the location of the driver.
Now which drivers should you update? Video, sound, network (wired and wireless), camera, mouse (synaptics if a laptop), and most importantly, the chipset. Why the chipset? It controls the peripheral equipment (e.g. video, sound, network). Updates usually correct problems or latency issues.
Remember, the chipset and BIOS (UEFI) control these devices. It’s important to get BIOS/UEFI updates along with what controls your computer…the chipset.
