Step-by-step: How Driver Robot fixes your drivers
Preparation & initial hardware scan
To prepare for this test, we put a fresh install of Windows on a system with a built-in sound card. Then, we turned it on and installed Driver Robot.
The first thing Driver Robot did was scan our computer's hardware. Sure enough, it flagged the card for missing its driver.
Driver report and details
After the scan, Driver Robot showed us the status of our computer's hardware and all of its drivers. The driver for the sound card had a big red "X" by it.
We clicked on the driver and Driver Robot offered to update it for us.
As the final step in the process, Driver Robot contacted the driver servers and automatically downloaded and installed the latest driver for the correct model of our card.
After we restarted our PC, all of the sound card's inputs and outputs worked with crystal-clear quality.
