Why can’t Driver Booster find out the old drivers?

  • First, the driver database includes only official drivers. Unofficial as well as beta versions are not considered.
  • Secondly, to guarantee the system security and to reduce the probability of a potential crash, drivers are tested on the importance of updating a particular driver. Consideration is given to compatibility with Windows specific version, possible conflicts.

As noted, all driver updates are collected only from official websites of hardware developers (Nvidia, Intel, AMD), or PC manufacturers (HP, DELL, Lenovo, etc.). Immediately after the official release of drivers, we include them in the list of potential drivers, which will be added to the database.

For the final decision on whether to include them in our database, we check the drivers for WHQL certification and conduct additional tests to exclude problematic drivers from the list. This is all to ensure that only official and quality versions of the software are available to you.

It is also worth mentioning that only PRO version of Driver Booster users can get the full version of driver database.

Identifying and eliminating the true causes is sometimes difficult. It can be either incompatibility of the computer with the driver, or due to a malfunction of the driver itself. If you encounter a problem, it is recommended to go to additional Driver Booster tools, which can fix the most common errors.
