Updating pc device

07 Mar

Because PC device drivers help devices and programs communicate with one another, they are integral to the performance of your computer.

They help programs run quickly, and often help your computer decide which program may need the most attention at a certain time, depending on the various functions you are performing at once.

Test, and then approve or reject, specific updates for deployment to your organization’s IP phones to make sure that all updates are valid and functional, instead of having to troubleshoot after deployment.

Rolling back an update Roll back a defective update and retain a tested prior update as the latest update.

In general, we don’t recommend updating hardware drivers unless you have a reason to.

The driver for the SD card reader that came built into your computer is probably just fine.

A device driver is a piece of software that tells the operating system (Windows XP, Windows 7, etc) how to communicate with a piece of hardware.You can also use Device Update Web service to roll back devices to previous software versions.We recommend that you check for updates every three months.However, after some time, your PC drivers may become outdated.This may happen gradually as you install additional components, or as the device's manufacturers continue to improve their own coding.For details about viewing updates for device in your organization, see Getting Started with Device Update Web service.Testing and deploying updates Retrieve updates from Microsoft and upload them to Device Update Web service.It is essentially a way of translating between the programs and applications your computer runs and the actual devices (both internal and external) that your PC uses to run those programs. When you add new devices, they may not speak the same language as your computer itself.The PC device driver is a mini translator that usually comes with a device, and it explains to the computer how these otherwise separate components can communicate with one another.Microsoft Lync Server 2010 includes the Device Update Web service, which is automatically installed with Web Services.You can use this service to download updates from Microsoft, test them, and then deploy the updates to all the IP phones in your organization.
