If you’re looking for a speed boost, updating your drivers to the latest version isn’t a magical speed enhancement that will suddenly remove the need to upgrade a slow PC.

Just like computer programs have updates and service packs to fix bugs and add features, drivers do as well.
If you’ve got a problem with a device, you should think about upgrading the drivers.
If you’re trying to eke out every tiny bit of performance out of your system, you should make sure that your video card drivers are updated using the manufacturer’s drivers, and you probably want to upgrade your chipset, networking, and sound card drivers as well.
Switching from the built-in Windows drivers for your video card to the official NVidia or ATI/AMD drivers will make a world of difference, and keeping them updated can yield huge speed gains.In case, the driver is outdated or missing, you can update audio/sound drivers following certain steps later.To obtain the status of the audio driver, go to ‘Device Manager’ of your system. If the device has a yellow mark next to it, means there is an issue with the device driver.If the driver fails to work properly, the connected audio device will not produce any sound.Hence, the drivers will have to be made functional in order to run the audio device smoothly.If a driver is not available or is not compatible with your system (as with some Sony notebooks), you may be able to install a modified third party driver using
