Windows 7: Drivers for Dell Studio

Drivers for Dell Studio

Just after the October 22 release date, Dell posted some new graphics and other drivers for Windows 7. How can I tell whether they are needed, or should I assume that Windows Update takes care of making sure the latest drives are installed?

I like to work under the thinkg that if it isn't broken don't fix it. But if Dell has released specific 7 drivers for your system.You can check what driver is installed simply by going to device manager and clicking on that device and checking the driver detail tab. If your unhappy with the graphics prefromance now then I would probably install their new driver.

It's generally a good idea to get the graphics adapter updates from the manufacturer as opposed to relying on Windows Update.

Here are the drivers Dell uploaded on Oct 26 vs the ones currently installed:

Hardware Current Version Dell Version
Intel Graphics
Network Microsoft version Realtek version
Audio Microsoft version Realtek version

All three things seem to be running fine. I might give Dell a call; you never know.
