If you are not experiencing display or sound problems, and do not play intensely graphic games, you can probably not worry about updating your drivers. If, on the other hand, you have never updated your drivers, it would be a good idea to do so, as well as to save them to disk in case of later computer problems.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Go to the website of the manufacterer of your graphic/-sound card and check whether there are any updates. If you are not sure, go to the freeware link in my sig and search for Belarc Advisor. Download and insall and run it. It will tell you what you have on your computer. If you have any doubts please feel free to post overhere so that we may assist you..

Attention : In the Belarc report also serials are included please erase these before posting here
