Re: Hardware errors After Windows Update
Generally it is preferable to download drivers for manufactured PCs from the
manufacturers website or the device manufacturers website, they are more
specifically prepared for the model of PC/device purchased. The MS driver
updates are as they say generic & are not always reliable, on some machines
OK, some not.
Set you MS Update to download updates but not to install, then when you are
notified updates available select the ones you wish to install, generally
again MS driver updates are usually marked as "reccommended".
This is something I have been doing for several years now (XP/Vista) and
have had no problems with upgrades.
If advise given from anyone, solves problem or not, or if solved from
another source,post back & let us know.
Then we all benefit.
