Hi dear friends


I need to know what updates I need to download from the Dell website ? When I put my service tag and operating system details in, lots
of updates appear, do I need all of them or just some ?
I have put a link here so you can see:

My System: Dell Vostro 200, running on XP Pro



Hope someone can help me out there, many thanks as always

Welcome to BC
Updating just for the sake of updating really is a waste of time and unnecessary.
What problems are you having that you want to update?

I wouldn't The only updates to be concerned with are Windows Updates and for your security programs

You should, if you are a PC gamer, update drivers from time to time as well.
