Oh yeah I installed uniblue driver scanner and scanned my driver and says that my drivers are outdated and are 8 years old oh my... driver scanner says its ancient lol, well these are my outdated drivers:

Terminal server keyboard driver 5.1.2600.2180

Terminal server mouse driver 5.1.2600.2180

Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator 5.1.2600.2180

Microsoft System Management BIOS Driver 5.1.2600.2180

Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC 5.620.1202.2004

They need to be updated to

Terminal server keyboard driver 6.0.6000.16386

Terminal server mouse driver 6.0.6000.16386

Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator 6.0.6000.16386

Microsoft System Management BIOS Driver 6.0.6000.16386

Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC 5.659.1012.2006

Driver scanner said these drivers have not passed the windows logo test to verify its compatibility with windows xp except for the Realtek...I wanted to know if I should update all of these drivers to their updated state except for realtek, well should I? or Should I leave it like that? Are these drivers compatible with Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2006) ? Please! I want the answer to these questions badly!!!

Mind realtek later I want to work on my system drivers...

You should never use any tools like this one.
Drivers shouldn't be updated in bunches, if at all.
Basically, you update a driver, if you have some particular issue.
Do you have any computer issues?

I agree with Broni, updating drivers should take place...when it's apparent/possible that system functionality is impaired by the drivers currently installed.

It's the old "If it ain't broke...".

Depending upon the system manufacturer and/or motherboard model, drivers should be downloaded directly from the appropriate site.

If I have an HP system...I should get my drivers from the HP site, support section. Ditto for all those 'brand-name" systems (Compaq, Dell, Toshiba, etc.).

If I have a self/custom-built PC where the motherboard manufacturer supplies drivers for onboard functions....I get my drivers from the manufacturer of said motherboard.

If I add a piece of equipment (video card, sound card, etc.), the manufacturer of said item provides the drivers.

When a given system function (audio, video, USB, etc.) seems problematical...uninstalling the current drivers and then replacing them with fresh copies (original drivers which worked) or updated drivers...is the way to go. Remove the troubled, install the ones which should work.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)

Can you elaborate on the above?

my antivirus is malwarebytes


Malwarebytes is not an antivirus program so I hope that is just an error and you are running an actual antivirus program

Your lap top is limited by RAM, and I always recommend to anyone I help with computers to keep their drivers and software as updated as possible. I always keep my machine well maintained, and I have no issues with it.

<<...oh yeah and well...should I update my drivers?>>

<<yeah yeah yeah now can you just give me the answer to my question "can I update all my drivers except realtek?" just answer!?>>

You have received several answers to this question...so I don't really understand why you keep asking it.

Are you waiting for an answer that says something that the others don't?

FYI

FWIW: Just because a vendor is a Microsoft partner...that doesn't mean that the products offered by such partners are necessary or desired installs on a given system. IMO, it only means that MS indicates that such program will run properly within Windows...nothing more. It's not that Windows users need every program developed by a certified Microsoft partner.

RealTek Drivers

For the others contact the manufacturer of your computer and/or motherboard.

Obviously you can update any driver you want to, whether or not you should, is an entirely different matter.

I agree with Broni and Louis.

In my opinion, unless there is a problem with the device the driver is for, leave the driver alone.

Btw, it appears from your other topic that you have an infected system. Unless you have cleaned the infections, that is probably the root of your problem and it is not a good idea to be replacing drivers until your system is not infected. Were you ever able to get the programs working that could clean up your infections? Did you get your system free of infections?
