Hello all, the other night i went into my device manager and updated some drivers on various things, like the cpu, motherboard, graphics card, etc. Some needed updating, others didnt. My question is, by doing this, does that mean i wont need to go to the various websites to download updates or are the updates and driver updates two seperate things entirely, does that make sense? Also, i have a Phenom x3 processor, which shows up has 3 seperate lines in device manager. Do i need to update each one individually or by just doing one, does that do all of them? Thanks for any help anyone can give me with this!
I see what your getting at. when you do it via device manager you just have to wait til something downloads or its not needed! The question i'm asking is, are these driver updates the same has going to the website and downloading from there or do you still need to go the website to download any additional stuff?
I can see how you did it, I just tried with a ATI Graphics Card. By using device manager your just getting the updated driver but by going to manufacturers site you would also get the updated software to get the best out of the new drivers features etc.
