DriverPack Solution Online is a powerful and convenient tool that can help ensure that your PC has the correct and latest drivers installed.
Windows Update is a powerful tool that uses the Internet to keep your computer current. This makes a big difference in terms of the security of the average computer. When it comes to device drivers, Windows Update doesn’t excel. Just ask anyone who has had Windows Update seek to replace their correct audio drivers with the latest and greatest generic Realtek drivers.
DriverPack Solution Online is similar to Windows Update except that it focuses specifically on device drivers. It maintains a massive list and actually associates drivers with hardware based on manufacturer recommendations; installation is easy, the client has a very small footprint, and it uses very little memory. Also, it doesn’t run unless you tell it too.
When you run DriverPack Solution Online it scans both your devices and the drivers on your system. The scanning process is very fast, even if you have a lot of storage and many components. When it’s finished, it will indicate devices that are using the wrong drivers. It also indicates devices that are using outdated driver and drivers that exist on your system that are unused or unidentifiable.
DriverPack Solution Online can remove unused drivers safely and retrieve the appropriate or current drivers you need from the Internet. Once they’re downloaded, it will uninstall the old drivers and then reboot the system so it can install the new drivers. It’s very fast and convenient, and it has full compatibility with Windows 10. DriverPack Solution Online also works with Windows versions as far back as Windows XP and works equally well with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
The one downside to DriverPack Solution Online is that it can exacerbate problems. If you have a driver-related problem and that problem is being caused, for instance, by a component being misidentified due to a hardware or software problem, then DriverPack Solution may worsen that issue. Therefore, while this is a good tool to keep your PC up to date, casual users should avoid using it to repair a problematic system.
