    My dad has been having problems with his pc. He talked to his ISP & they suggested looking for driver updates for his system. Is there something on his pc that tells him what to look for? I did a search for drivers for myself the other day (I'm having problems too.), and found drivers, but nothing to tell me which ones I needed personally. They had some components of my system listed, but didn't tell me if I needed the updates. Is there some way to tell. If we install drivers we aren't sure we need are we gonna mess something up?
    Thanks!

    If its a wondowsXP system then do a system restore backup before updating any drivers, then if there is a problem you just restore to the point before you did the driver updates.
