Chapter Three Usage
3.1 What is a driver? Drivers are programs that allow your operating system to communicate with hardware devices. They tell the operating system which devices have been installed as well as their function.
3.2 Windows has already installed a driver for a device, why need I update it? Drivers provided by Windows only offer basic device performance. To get optimal performance, you must install the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The most important thing to note is that the drivers provided by Windows do not contain a control panel for hardware configuration. For example, if you don't install the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer for video cards, you cannot configure the video card's OpenGL and Direct3D options. This can noticeably lowers the quality and FPS of 3D images in games. Similarly with sound cards, Windows drivers cannot offer EAX sound effects, 3D sound effects, or Dolby multi-channel surround stereo. Installing a suitable driver enhances device performance.
3.3 Launch Driver Genius and Find/Update Drivers You can launch the main program of Driver Genius by the ways as bellow: Double click the shortcut icon of Driver Genius on Windows desktop. Please check that you are running under an Administrator account before loading Driver Genius.
Select the Windows menu of "Start" / "All Programs" / “Driver Genius (you can also find the 'Driver Genius icon' in the new start screen of Windows 8/10)"
Please click 'Start Scan' button to scan for driver updates. Driver Genius will check the driver database version automatically when scanning driver updates. Driver Genius can recognize over 160,000 devices and offer their latest version drivers. It can recognize the devices even you don't know their model and type. A last scan driver updates log also shows here, click a driver name to view the driver update details. You can find all the updated drivers by clicking 'View update history' button, click the 'Reinstall' button beside each driver name to install the driver update again.
Click 'Update All ' button to automatically download and install new drivers for your system. You can also click the 'Update' button besides each driver to update some drivers individually.
To view a driver's provider, date, version information, click 'View driver update details' below each driver. Click 'More details about the driver update' to check the driver release notes that detail the corrections, changes or enhancements made to the service or product the hardware company provides.
If an update procedure failed because of a network problem or because it was stopped, you can resume updating where it left off. Just click the 'Update' button besides the driver to continue updating it.

Hiding driver updates
Please right click the driver update and choose 'Hide this driver update' if you don't want to update a driver. You can also click the 'Restore hidden driver updates' button in the lower right corner to restore it at any time. The hidden driver won't be listed in the update driver list until there is a newer version driver is available.
To restore hidden drivers, click the 'Restore hidden driver updates' button and select drivers, then click 'Restore' button to restore driver updates.
Click ‘Options' --- ‘Auto Update' to define a schedule for the driver auto update.
Driver Genius can scan driver updates and download, even install them silently in background automatically when they are available. The Auto Update scheduler will run at scheduled intervals. When Windows loads, it will automatically run the driver update process according to users' will.
3. Commonly, most of drivers can be installed silently and automatically by Driver Genius after clicking the' Update All' button. But some drivers just can't be installed silently because of their own reason. For example, the Qualcomm Atheros network card driver. This driver can't be installed silently by Driver Genius, you have to install it manually. Click the 'Install' button after the driver was downloaded completely, then leave the rest to Driver Genius. The program will install the driver automatically at this moment.
3.3.1 Roll back drivers Driver Genius can roll back a driver to its previous version independently now. If the device can not work after updating the driver, roll back to the previously installed version one.
To roll back drivers
1. Click the 'View update history' button in home window.
2. Click the 'Roll Back Driver' button beside a driver update to roll back to its previously installed version one. Besides, you can click the 'Reinstall' button to reinstall the driver update again here.
3.4 Backup drivers You should back up your drivers before reinstalling the operating system or updating drivers. To back up your drivers: 1> Click the 'Backup Drivers' icon. The program searches for all drivers installed in current system. A list of installed drivers appears in the right window pane. To view details of a device driver, click the device in the list. The details are displayed in the window.
Current used Drivers These drivers are currently being used on your computer. They need to be backed up.Original Windows Drivers These drivers are included in the Windows installation CD and are installed automatically during the Windows installation procedure. They normally do not need to be backed up.Disconnected Devices Drivers These drivers belong to devices which are not currently connected to your computer. If you want to use these devices in the future, their drivers must be installed on your PC. Therefore, you need to back them up. This is very important when installing drivers on a clean, newly-installed operating system.
1> Select the drivers that you want to back up and click 'Next'. By default all drivers will be backed up. This will take more time and disk space, so you may want to back up only the currently used drivers. 2> Select the Backup type. Driver Genius can back up drivers to a ZIP file, a self-extractor, or an Auto-Installer. Click the drop down menu -> Select the Backup type. Choose from the 4 options available. If you want to install drivers on multiple computers with the same configuration, we strongly recommend you should back up the drivers to an auto-installer. You can use the Auto-Installer to install drivers on a new system very quickly without Driver Genius, and thereby save lots of time. In addition, the trial version Driver Genius can't backup drivers to an Auto-Installer.
3> Choose a location to save your driver backup files and click 'Next' to start the backup process. Warning! Do not save the backup files in the partition where you install Windows. All data in that partition will be lost during the Windows installation process.

These drivers can't be installed silently and automatically by Driver Genius, you have to install them manually.
Click the 'Install' button after the driver was downloaded completely, then leave the rest to Driver Genius. The program will install the driver automatically at this moment.
4.3 Driver Genius does not boot up properly. If you are using Windows 2000 or XP or Vista and 7/8/8.1/10, please check that you are running in Administrator account.

To check the version of current program used, click 'help' menu and choose 'about'. Please keep in mind that the license code are case-sensitive, you'd better copy the license information then paste them to the registration form just in case.
4.7 What systems can Driver Genius work on? Driver Genius can works on Windows 2000, Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 (32bit & 64bit), Windows Server 2003/2008(32bit & 64bit), Windows Server 2008 R2/2012 R2. Driver Genius doesn't support Windows 95/98/ME/NT, Macintosh, Unix or Linux. Notice：Driver Genius does not support Windows 98/ME anymore since version 9. You can use Driver Genius 8 in Windows 98/Me system.
4.8 I have backed up drivers on Windows Vista, can I restore them on Windows 7/8/8.1/10? Unfortunately you can't. Although there are some drivers that can both work fine on Windows 2000 and Windows XP, most drives can not work on different operating systems.
4.9 I have backed up my drivers to an EXE Auto-Installer on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10, why I can't execute it? You must run it as administrator. Please right click the EXE Auto-Installer, choose 'run as administrator'.
4.10 Windows has already installed a driver for my hardware, should I need update it? Drivers provided by Windows can only offer basic device performance. To get optimal performance, you must install the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The most important thing to note is that the drivers provided by Windows do not contain a control panel for hardware configuration. For example, if you don't install the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer for video cards, you cannot configure the OpenGL and Direct3D options for the video card. This can noticeably lower the quality and FPS of 3D images in games. Similarly with the sound card, Windows drivers cannot offer EAX sound effects, 3D sound effects, or Dolby multi-channel surround stereo. So installing a suitable driver will enhance the full performance of device.
4.11 I have downloaded and installed the most recent version drivers provided by Driver Genius all, but the program still prompted me to update drivers. In our previous version Driver Genius, if you have installed the latest drivers for a device but this driver will still appears in the update list. This problem is caused by those big driver packages. The driver package contains multiple device drivers. Driver Genius determines whether the drivers should be updated or not by comparing the driver date and driver version in our current drivers database. But, there is more than one driver in some big driver installation package released by the hardware manufacturers. For example, Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility and VIA Hyperion Pro Driver include AGP controller, IDE controller and USB controller driver and so on. In this situation, Driver Genius is unable to determine whether the drivers are installed correctly or not. To prevent downloading repeatedly, we hide those drivers after users install them by choosing 'install' button in Drivers Download Manager since Driver Genius version 9. The program won't prompt to update those drivers until their newer version one released. Of course you can also restore them manually at anytime by click 'Restore Hidden Driver Updates' button.
4.12 I can't download driver update. 1. Please change your firewall settings to ensure Driver Genius can access internet correctly if you have firewall software installed. 2. Download server may be busy. Please try again later.
4.13 I've shut down Driver Genius before downloading drivers completely. How can I resume the unfinished download mission? Click 'Start Scan' button in the Home window of Driver Genius, the program will scan and list all driver updates for your computer again. The previous driver will be replaced if a newer version driver has been released during this time.
4.14 Driver Genius prompt that there are 8 devices drivers need updating, only 4 drivers left in download list after choosing them all to update. Why? Because some driver packages contain multiple device drivers such as motherboard driver, it contains AGP controller driver, USB controller driver and IDE/RAID controller driver. So the driver packages you download contain all drivers you need.
4.15 Some 7z packed format drivers can't be downloaded successfully or download repeatedly after reaching 100%. That may be caused by a certain damaged system file. Driver Genius can't get the 'MD5' code of your system. You need to fix Microsoft Cryptography to solve the download problem. 1. Rename the folder 'RSA' C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto to 'RSA.bak'. 2. Load Driver Genius to update the driver again.

* Не много о СБОРНИКЕ:*
Как-то мне надо было установить дрова на старую машину под Windows 7 и перепробовав, несколько сборников с драйверами у меня ни чего не вышло, вот и пришли на помощь эти программы. Одной программой не удалось найти все драйвера, тогда стал искать каждой софтиной по очереди и в итого через час другой установил все драйвера. Всего в сбонике 22 программы которые я разделил для удобства по назначению:

Итоги и комментарии:Удивительная способность программы к быстрому нахождению и полностью автоматизированному обновлению устаревших драйвер пакетов, оставила во мне самые приятные впечатления от работы с ней. При подключении к интернету, находясь в трее, она автоматически обновляет драйвера с нулевой точки, одновременно с тем подтирая концы старых пакетов. До встречи с этим потрясающим приложением я долго мучался со звуком, а также имел ряд проблем с постоянным вылетом флешки. Буквально за десятиминутный отрезок [Читать далее...]

Да, так как с сайта скачивается только программа, а вот драйверы, которые необходимо обновить, она определит в процессе работы и должна будет докачать.
Интернет соединение обязательно?
Дрянь полная. третий раз пришлось переустанавливать систему. не успев запуститься, пишет завершение работы. Вдобавок платная(версия Pro)
Плохая программа, находит не те драйвера что нужно. Ставит какие-то старые драйвера и разрешение с 1366х768, становится 1024х800.
Хорошая прога. Даже для старого железа. Обновила мне 8 драйверов. А по факту- больше. Контроллеры всякие. Была проблема со звуком. Трещал. Драйвера от Микросовт- кривоватые.. Все обновила. Сейчас не трещит.. рекомендую!
у кого кривые руки или нет элементарных навыков работы с компом эту прогу не ставить! для остальных это Вещь!
