DRIVERS.
« on: 30. January 2015., 15:09:39 »
Hello,

In Terms Of Drivers, You Can Have Two Types Of Devices:

A - "First World" - They Have Already Some Driver Installed,

B - "Third World" - They Have None Installed Yet, And You Are Clueless Where To Get Even A Generic One.

There Are Several Utilities That ( Better Or Worse ) Help You Update The ( A ) Type With The Latest Drivers.

Is There An Equivalent Utility To Help You Find A Generic Good Enough Driver For The ( B ) Type, Finally Promoting That Device To The ( A ) Type World ?

Thank You.

Generally, I don't use the programs for automatic updates of drivers... I don't trust them. :-\

...but here you have an interesting script: http://scforum.info/index.php/topic,9608.0.html

Whenever I Want Software I Go To The VERSIONTRACKER DOWNLOAD CNET Site, Check The Original Developer Site And See If I Can Get The Most Recent Version.

SLIMDRIVERS Sometimes Installs Drivers Older Than The Ones Already Installed.

It Is The Only Utility I Remember Using, And I Have Not Used It In A Long Time.

Thank You For The Tip.

That is the main reason why I avoid using these type of programs... sometimes they do more harm than a good.  >:(

If After All Attempts, You Still Have A Device Without Even A Generic Driver, Then Try A Marriage Between This Program And GOOGLE:

For drivers SlimDrivers I use the program, but after using it and upgrade or install all the drivers on our computer, we must review the programs installed on my computer, because sometimes install unwanted programs ...
