Computer or applications running slow? Maybe your drivers need an update!

If you notice your computer has been running slower than usual, it could be due to outdated device drivers. Device drivers are an essential piece of software that helps different hardware components work smoothly with your computer. When these drivers are properly updated, your computer will run great. However, when they have become outdated, they can start causing problems.

Some issues caused by out-of-date drivers include:

  • Monitor display problems
  • USB mouse not detected
  • Webcam issues
  • Slower operating speeds
  • Crashing

Another key advantage of keeping device drivers updated is having the peace of mind of a secure machine. Outdated drivers are a security risk and can make your computer vulnerable to hackers and malicious software.

Updating drivers can solve many problems with both your hardware and software. Give the Service Desk a call to report performance issues and to have one of our skilled technicians troubleshoot and install updates, if needed.
