I have a new-ish computer that my brother gave me. It is a 64 bit AMD Athlon that he used as a gaming PC. It runs Linux so my issues are almost always about drivers. I have been hearing lately the same issues have been cropping up with Vista * now there is a shock :-) *. I and other linux users can at least check the Synaptic Manager or cry on the shoulders of fellow Ubuntu users at the Ubuntu Forums for help in either locating or setting up our drivers, but who do users of Vista turn to? Do not despair Windows users, there is a place that holds all the drivers you can wish for, DriverLibrary.com.
At DriverLibrary, you can search for Widows Drivers, find out what each driver is for and how they are used. You can even update your drivers automatically from the site. I always say knowledge is power and when it comes to our computers knowledge is of absolute necessity. As we go from the days of a hard drive that was only 10 GB to the massive storage we have today of 500 + we need to be able to not only turn the computer on, we need to fully understand what care it needs to remain in perfect running order and drivers are an essential part of that care.
For instance, if you have Motorola USB devices such as the Motorola Smart Phone, you can now download the motorola usb drivers right from this website. This helps in the days when we are all geeks for more hours then we get to sleep, one place for drivers is a godsend. Now all I need is someone to include Linux and we are in like flint.
