- Installation and Precautions
Know your Operating System
Before installing or downloading any driver from the Internet you need to know the operating system you are using like Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, Windows® 7 because each one of them has different driver’s compatibility requirements.
Now, when you know the operating system you must install a good antivirus for your system just to avoid any unknown error or virus attack on your system while downloading the drivers or maybe while installing them to your system.
There are few like Norton, AVG, avast!, etc. that are the best in the market so far. But this is your choice completely so be careful while choosing an antivirus.
Keep The Product Information Ready
Now when you are all set with the OS information and antivirus is installed now it is time for the drivers downloading, well you have to provide your product information to the site so that the website will give you the exact drivers list for your laptop. Generally, it will ask for a product number, Model number, etc. just for checking the system configuration for your laptop. There are different drivers available for the different model number so be ready with the model number.
After providing the model number, the site will give you a list of drivers like for sound, video, HDD, etc., or sometime you will get a bunch of all these drivers.
One more thing you need to take care of before installation of drivers is to set your recovery point as if something went wrong then you can anytime go back to the original state without losing any data or important information.
Now when you have all the drivers downloaded on your system it is time to install them, follow the instruction given on the site and install each driver one by one. After installation, reboot your system and check whether the system is running on Windows® XP or not and after successful booting try to run some application and check the functionality, play some song, and check the sound, play some video, etc. If any one of them are not working properly then you must go back and check whether the particular driver is the right one or not as in some cases some hardware do not support some drivers but do not worry you will get the driver on the Internet, you just need to check for the exact one.
