Between different versions of Windows that support for older hardware passes or kinder ceases to be good, and if for example you install Windows 7 on a modern PC that comes with Windows 8 or 8.1 pre-installed, it is possible that you suffer to get compatible drivers, even from the same manufacturer website. Sometimes the problem is more ridiculous still, purchases a new PC and the drivers that come are so bad that your brand new computer does not work well until you update them.
InstalledDriversList This application offers the easiest way to check all and each of the drivers that we have installed in our computer at any time. You can download InstalledDriversList for free for any version of Windows from 2000 onwards.
It is a secure software that won’t fill your computer of spyware and malware, spam, and works flawlessly. Does not require installation just run the .exe file that you must unzip first. Once started, the program shows you all the drivers that you have installed with a light green, yellow or red. Green means your controller works fine and it runs with the Windows kernel. Yellow means that the driver is not running with the kernel and is not in operation. Red means that the driver is not loading the kernel but should, therefore something is malfunctioning with him.
If you get 2 drivers from Microsoft in red that are operating system, it is because you are using Windows 8/8.1 and only in this case is normal.
Solve and resolve conflicts and errors caused by the drivers installed on the computer. As test its operating and know whether some they are damaged or incompatible with the system. Identify drivers causing Windows blue screen errors. Windows includes a tool called “Drivers Checker”, to verify the functioning of the drivers installed on the computer and its compatibility with the operating system.
It allows us to know if any of the drivers is causing conflicts and errors. We can test all those installed, those who are of above systems or any in particular. Drivers Verifier is configured using the Driver Verifier Manager. It is a very handy tool to detect the cause of the famous “blue screen error” messages, also known as “screen of death error” or BSOD.
Detect if you are drivers who cause problems
A great tool that we’ve already covered before in Bitelia, is WhoCrashed. This program allows us to analyze errors that occur when our PC suffers a critical failure and ends up rebooting alone, it shows a blue screen, or simply shuts down or crashes. WhoCrashed analyzes Crash Dump file and reveals what the cause of the problem.
If the culprits are drivers that are malfunctioning, WhoCrashed will show you what exactly and will also let you do a web search with the name of the error or errors directly to try to find the solution. Not only that, until can show you drivers that have caused damage in the past.
With these two tools, you can diagnose with certainty if they are the drivers of your team who you are causing headaches. You can also isolate the defective drivers individually to find out if you must replace them. Most of the time we don’t have to worry much about this, and unless you have a very powerful graphics card that you use for games, you won’t have to worry about hand to update your drivers, because the Windows updates take care of that for you. But sometimes, either change the version of Windows or simply by bad luck or a lazy manufacturer, problems occur and the first step to solve them is to discover the cause. [banner_abajo]
