One of the best manufacturers of computer hardware is Dell however; there are still some common issues that Dell products face. Just like the other devices, sometimes your Dell hardware will cease to operate and must be fixed. Fortunately, when hardware starts on malfunctioning, fixing them is quite as easy as making updates for the device drivers.
To understand it more clearly, when your keyboard starts on malfunctioning usually there is a problem on its device driver. So, after you update or replace your keyboard driver, it will be back on its normal operation.
If you want your Dell hardware problems to be fixed, you must find your Dell drivers CD. It is labeled as “Drivers and Utilities” or “Dell Drivers”. After you insert the disc, there will be a wizard asking you which driver you wish to install. So, if you know exactly which among the drivers you need to install, you can just choose from the selections of drivers.
If you are not sure or don’t know exactly, investigate first.
How will you know which driver is malfunctioning? To know which device driver is causing the stir up and chaos, just open the control panel and open up the device manager. The device manager will show all installed devices on your computer. If there is a yellow marking on any of the devices shown, it means that “that” device driver must be fixed or replaced.
After you have found the issue, go back to the window of your Dell driver. Choose the right Dell drivers and restore them. You may need to install just one driver or maybe multiple drivers depending on the problem device.
If the installation CD of the driver that you need to install is lost, you can visit the support page of Dell website. They have complete up-to-date drivers as well as firmware available for downloads. Just type the model number and operating system type of your computer on the driver download part of Dell website.
This will give you a better chance of obtaining the exact drivers that you need. Download it to your computer.
Click and follow the prompts and install them on your computer. Remember where you saved the file so that in the future when you have to reinstall it, you know where to find it.
