Every hardware introduce itself to an operating system by its own driver software. The driver software is an interface between operating system and the hardware. Usually the hardware vendor is responsible for providing driver software along with the hardware part and the installer is distributed via CD/DVD and the download link vendor’s website. For some hardware the driver software is inbuilt which means it come along with the OS installation.In some special cases, suppose consider that you have purchased a new hardware devices. But for that hardware, software driver is not known or available with some third party vendors (multiple Vendors). In this case, it is difficult to finalize the driver software provided by third party software Vendor is compatible to your hardware device. Searching of compatible or matching device driver software is tedious job and sometime it is risky. You may end up with searching compatible software on the internet, downloaded and installed. Some cases it works quite smoothly. But, suppose if it found incompatible, then anyway the hardware will not work and there is a high chance of damage or may corrupt your operating system. This is quite risky.
In such situations, either you should have a sound knowledge on list of compatible device drivers available in the market. Or else, you would need an intelligent utility software which help you to identify and suggest the compatible driver software for your hardware device. In this article, I will introduce a system tool which makes your life ease.
