    Default Is a Good Program to Update Drivers?


    I am attempting to upgrade my GraphicsDriver for my HP Compaq 6730s laptop to be certain I am running theSims 3 Showtime the best I can. But Intel says they do not know anyof the drivers they automatically found and when I go with Hp'swebsite to setup few of the drivers they offer, my PC tells me that Ialready have a higher version. I have just updated my drivers onceapplying few Tune -Up Program that I detected it I did not as.

    Everythe websites look to be acting moronic thus what can I do to assure Ihave all my latest drivers, because I experience there must have beenfew kind of update in the past two years. Please create fewsuggestions like I have had this trouble for almost as long as I havehad my laptop, and please stay on subject. Windows Vista Business32-BIT. Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family.

    Most of those "driver tune up" programs are cozenage . . Your best source of drivers for a laptop is the producer support site. Laptop hardware is much more proprietary as compare to desktop hardware and frequent the drivers are written not by the device producer, but the Laptop producer.

    Which for few reason is in Asian writing, and all of the pages that are listed are to. I apply Google Translate to translate the page and that is where I downloaded the driver which affords me the message "This driver is .. which is lower as compare to your current version ...."

    Attempt avoiding the automatic detection and only enter you model number/serial no. What creates you think the driver requires to be updated?

    Considerable I acquired Sims 3 Showtime lately but known few random hangs to the point where I would have to restart my PC because CTRL+ESC would not acquire me out of the game. I decided to download a little program to read my crash logs and give me a rough diagnoses, and my diagnoses was.
    "Insufficient Graphics Capability - Upgrade Your Graphics Card Or Get it Checked Out For Instability." My graphics card examine it at LetMeRunThis so I'm thinking there's a update somewhere I require to have.

    I went further and seemed up my laptop manually and acquired here, I downloaded the one at very top of the Driver - Graphics category, and the one at the very bottom. The bottom one told me that my present version was higher as compare to the version setting up it would afford me. Do you recommend the middle ones?

    You can attempt different ones and watch which work best, but it sounds as the graphics card is not up to the task . . notebooks a commonly not up to games. Does the card meet the needs for the game?

    Thus I have heard but according to my sources I am good. You referred that most Driver Update Programs are scams, but do you have any that might be a good one?

    None that I experienced of . . they will commonly detect dozens of out of date drivers and offer to update them for a price . . I do all driver updates manually . . from the manufacturer

    Considerable thanks for your help. I am going to go ahead and watch if I can do without it. I guess this can be closed or deleted.
