Others will disagree with that, but just ask anyone who updated BIOS or a driver just to keep "up to date", only to discover that it introduced a problem that didn't exist earlier.
Problems such as recordings freezing up, difficulty in selecting the correct, working input source or having the full range of input sources available, usually mean your sound device has faulty, outdated or inappropriate drivers.
While most of these allow us to explore new features in our music library or help software run with more security, there's also the need to update so your computer can run what you want, period.
In a computer, a driver is a piece of software that tells hardware how to run on a certain operating system.
Before we discuss how to download and install Gateway drivers, let us first take a look at the different situations that may cause driver-related issues: If you have reformatted your Gateway netbook, notebook, or desktop and don’t have the original driver CD or DVD, you will need to check the types of drivers you need.
Otherwise, you would need to download all the available drivers for your system.
Device Manager can also try and update the drivers for you itself, and Windows users are strongly recommended to try this update facility as a first step - see Extra help for Windows users below.
When I downsized my speakers, I did it because the speakers I had required a certain distance to the listening position before they would converge together and form a cohesive image.
Do you need really huge speakers, and are they worth it? If you want to understand anything about room acoustics, remember this: Loudspeakers always interact with the room in which they are placed. While THX acts like its definition of a small, medium and large room is proprietary knowledge that they’d rather drag to the grave rather than divulge, the following definitions are going to get you in the ballpark: Another way to think of it is that a bedroom-sized listening room is going to be considered “Small”, a larger living space will be considered “Medium” and a room the size of a small banquet room (presumably with tall ceilings) will be in the “Large” category.
Monstrous, gigantic speakers sitting three feet away from your face and pumping out 105d B of ear-bleeding sound is exactly what you need! You also don’t want to be sitting around listening to sound from a small jobsite radio either. The truth is, I once downsized my speakers when I went from a larger room to a new home where my theater needed to shrink.
If this occurs it is important that the drivers are updated.
Drivers are the piece of software that tells your computer how to talk to the specific hardware you have installed or connected to your computer.
Using a Driver Update Tool can be a simpler and more effective way of fixing driver-related errors.
