Updating drives dell automated tool
After installation, Driver Update ran a scan and informed us that our computer had 14 out-of-date drivers, many of which are considered “ancient.” This is on a fresh Windows 8.1 system — installed just a few months ago — with the latest drivers available from the manufacturer’s website at the time.
There’s no possible way we have “ancient” drivers from 2006 installed.
Just visit the company's support forums to get a hint at customer issues.
Any one of these issues can cost you time and money in not just lost productivity, but on tech support calls and shipping labels as well.If you try to update your drivers, you’re told that the installed drivers “can cause problems, system slowdowns and bluescreen errors.” This is technically true, but very unlikely.It’s also technically true that updated drivers could cause problems, system slowdowns, and blue-screen errors by introducing new bugs. The tool wants you to pay a year to “Fix current device driver problems,” “Benefit from new driver features,” and “Prevent future system problems.” It’s very unlikely any driver will offer new features, and it’s very unlikely your current drivers could cause “future system problems.” Some reviews on allege that if you actually pay , you’ll receive a phone call from customer service informing you that they found problems on your computer during the driver update scan.Today, Dell is seeking to make the process even easier with the release of the Driver Pack Catalog into beta.
The Driver Pack Catalog is an XML file that contains metadata about newly released Dell systems and Win PE Driver Packs.
