Question: "How Do I Update Drivers in Windows?"
You might need to perform a driver update in Windows for all kinds of reasons. Usually, a driver update is used as a solution to an issue with how Windows works with a piece of hardware.
Updating a driver can also enable new or updated features for the hardware.
Answer: Drivers are updated in Windows by using a driver update wizard from within Device Manager.
The driver update wizard walks you through the entire driver update process, making updating drivers a fairly painless task.
Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP all have slightly different processes for completing driver updates:
How to Update Drivers in Windows 7
How to Update Drivers in Windows Vista
How to update Drivers in Windows XP
Updating a hardware device's driver is usually the first troubleshooting step to any hardware issue in Windows.
In particular, a simple driver update will correct many of the popular Device Manager error codes.

I normally just delete posts like these, but just this once I thought I'd do a little bit of research and a follow-up post to warn people about what's going on here.

Yes you are right that Drivers are updated in Windows by using a driver update wizard from within Device Manager but i suggest you to download driver from your motherboard company official site. if you update your driver from device manager then it just update driver or if you download a setup its come with the driver supporting software and it will gives you better performance. so i suggest to download setup.

Really this is very informative post. Window 7 install all drivers itself while older version of window require driver installation from CD drive or floppy drive.
