Share the most standard way to INSTALL DRIVER for LAPTOP and PC

In the process of using computers, I believe you have heard a lot about the term DRIVER, right?

Not only that, you have many times encountered the system asking to update the Driver to the latest version. So what do you already know about Driver?

Well, in this article, I will help you better understand the concept of Driver, as well as the main function of Driver in your computer…

#first. What is a computer driver?

A computer driver (also known as a driver, or device driver) is a set of files that make a piece of hardware work, by communicating with that computer’s operating system.

Or to put it more easily, drivers help hardware and software to communicate with each other, to perform a certain task.

All hardware links require a separate driver to work, such as Video Cards, Sound Cards, Wi-Fi Cards, etc. or peripheral devices (mouse, keyboard). , or a printer…

As you all know, we humans are composed of a body and a soul. It’s the same with computers, with hardware and software.

And the driver is the bridge between hardware and software, the driver helps the operating system to control and use the computer’s hardware.

Without drivers, the operating system will not be able to recognize hardware devices, thereby leading to the hardware being unusable.

For example, when you buy a WiFi USB to receive WiFi signal for a desktop computer (PC), for example, this USB WiFi will not work if you do not install the driver for it.

Or the video card is the same, when you add a video card to the computer without installing the driver, this video card cannot be used. This results in blurred images, vertical stripes, or even not on the screen.

#2. How to check if the computer is missing a driver or not?

Some signs that can immediately know that the computer is missing a Driver are:

  • Cannot use touchpad on laptop.
  • The computer does not recognize the mouse and keyboard.
  • Unable to control the brightness of the computer screen…. (most likely the driver is faulty or too old to need to be upgraded)….
  • The computer does not catch WiFi, this is very common for Windows7.
  • The computer has no sound, when I turn on the Ziut, there is no sound at all
  • ………… and so on and clouds and other causes.

In addition, to check if your computer is missing any Driver, you can check in the section Device Manager of the Windows operating system.

There are a few ways to quickly open Device Manager:

Method 1:

Right click ThisPC (Computer) => choose Manage => choose next Device Manager. The column on the right will show you all your devices, which one is missing the Driver, it will have a yellow exclamation mark as shown below.

Method 2:

You open the Run dialog box (use the key combination Windows (Share the most standard way to INSTALL DRIVER for LAPTOP and PC | Driver) + CHEAP) => then you use the command devmgmt.msc for quick opening.

You can right-click these drivers to temporarily disable, remove, update drivers, etc.

In some cases, for example, Wi-Fi error, sound not up… then you can go here => open the corresponding driver => select Uninstall device => then select Scan for hardware changes, or restart the computer so it can search for the driver again. That’s very effective.

In general, basically, if you use Windows 10 operating system, it is almost as if you do not need to install any additional drivers. Because the Windows installer has integrated almost all the necessary drivers.

As for the specific drivers such as additional graphics cards, additional WiFi cards, printers, etc., of course you have to install them yourself.

#3. Why is it important to find standard drivers for your computer?

Currently, there are countless software that support the installation of drivers for computers quickly, including some popular driver sets such as: WanDriver, DriverPack Solution, etc.

There are also automatic Driver search tools such as DriverEasy Pro, or Snappy Driver Installer… These are toolkits to help you install Drivers more quickly.

Of course, after using 3rd party tools to install the Driver, the computer can still work OK, the software will recognize the hardware… However, it is not the most optimized.

Because the driver that these 3rd party software installs for the hardware is only at the level of running, compatibility… but it cannot take advantage of/exploit 100% of the power of that hardware.

Instead, you should search and install the official drivers, provided by the publisher. Only then will the operating system maximize the power that the hardware has.

Don’t underestimate this, it’s also because Apple’s hardware and software work together so well that the power of the new iPhone is so terrible. Although the configuration of the iPhone when compared to SAMSUNG always loses the segment.

#4. How to find standard drivers for your computer?

Please note that for Windows 10 operating system, updating to the latest Windows 10 also means updating the driver to the latest version.

Therefore, if you are missing a driver, update Windows 10 to the latest version first, then install any missing one.
