Hi guys ..

Checked with the Microsoft Windows Update page and found a new driver available for downlaod. However, upon clicking install, a new page pops up and indicates the driver download innitiated. Instantly, it states fail. Tried couple of times and still the same result. Any idea why?

What is the driver for? I would say for the most part don't download drivers from windows update and instead grab them from the hardware maker.

nope the drivers from MS are usually crappy miminal drivers to make windows work.

The generarally are old versions by 6-12 months too.

Worst place to get drivers from.

Get the latest fromthe hardware maker :D

how come? are they not good from windows update coz i usally select the driver updates
Not that they aren't good. They work fine. It's just that the ones you can get from the manufacturers' sites are generally more feature-complete and more recent.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
