Free Background Stock. Windows 10. #How To Dance Around The Replacement Of Faulty Device Drivers On Your Computer.
Failed device drivers may be more of a common problem for us than most of us may realize. What do you do when your computer notifies you that an important device driver has failed after a reboot? Device drivers perform very vital functions on your machine if a device driver fails you may not be able to restart your Windows Operating System, causing your computer to crash. Here is a quick tutorial on how to ‘dance’ around a solution to curing the problem of a stubborn device driver that will not update on your computer.
The ‘dance’ that I am referring to are the steps that are taken after you discover that an important device driver has failed on your computer. First, you will be notified your operating system will inform you that a device driver has failed on your computer. Why is it important to address this issue? Because failure of a driver can cause your entire computer system to crash necessitating a reinstall of your Windows operating system.
The first step after you discover a problem is to go to your Device Manager on your computer. In your Device Manager, you will see a small yellow pyramid that will mark the device driver that has failed on your system. Right-click on the failed device driver and a drop-down menu will appear offering you several options about how to fix the problem. Choose ‘Scan For A New Device Driver’ option. Perform the scan and see if your operating system can download an updated device manager, more often than not this will fail to solve the problem. Choose another option ‘See If Windows Update Can Find A New Driver’, choose this option as your second choice once again, this second option may fail to produce the desired result (Did I mention that there was a ‘Dance’ involved earlier on in this article?)
Alright after the two options that I provided have failed what do you do next? Take a deep breath and choose the option to erase the affected device driver using your drop-down menu. Then reboot your computer to see if Windows automatically replaces the faulty driver. After the reboot, if you do not receive another notification that the same driver has failed again, you may be alright – but don’t take my word for it. (The ‘Dance’ begins again).
What has happened is that you have erased a faulty device driver that on the reboot of your computer has automatically replaced that faulty driver with the original driver that had failed. If this is appearing to get more confusing as time goes on please allow me to simplify the process of what has happened – Your computer did automatically replace the faulty driver with the original driver that may still need to be updated! Are you following my logic now? The ‘Dance’ continues because your original problem is not yet resolved.
You now need to download two free driver updater software programs that will help you resolve the problem of your original faulty driver that has not been updated to the necessary new driver that will keep your computer running as smoothly as a child’s new toy. I recommend two programs that seem to compliment one another when ‘Dancing’ with a driver update program, please download both of these software programs to your computer ensuring that they are compatible with your OS system. Please download Driver Booster 5 and a second program called Driver Max, both are Free Versions so they will cost you no money.
Run each of these programs one at a time and they will identify the missing driver that you need to update to your computer. Why will this work smoothly? Because you followed the previous steps in the ‘Dance’ to discover which driver was faulty, kickstart your computer out of it’s ‘Driver-Awareness Sleep’ and what you have done is effectively taken the necessary steps in order to ensure that all of the device drivers on your computer are properly updated. Don’t take my word for it, follow the steps that I have outlined and you WILL solve most of the updating of device drivers that remained a mystery to you in the past. One warning please only replace device drivers that your computer informs you that you have a problem with. Enjoy your computing and please keep all of your device drivers updated in order to avoid crashes in your system.
