driver updates question

Banned
when you update drivers is the date supposed to stay the same? sorry if this sounds dim, but just updated the wireless card as it keeps losing connection, think the new driver is on, after some faffing about, but date is the same as it was, she gonna go nuts if i messed something up

Hard to follow what you are trying to say??

If you update any driver the only change you will see is in device manager the device will have the new driver number and the date it was made other than that there will be no changes to everything else.

Or if really new the symbol/icon might have changed too

Just do windows update and dell updates or put your TAG number into dell`s site and let it update then it will sort itself out

thats what i did

You should be fine then may have to reboot a few time.

But to check go to Device manger then hardware in there will be a list of all hardware and there should not be any ? marks or ! symbols on any item

everytime i rebooted it said it could not find a file, so i have restored, there is no ?/! marks, its just it keeps dropping my connection and it isnt the livebox, so thought ide check drivers via dell site, who show an updated version, so did them both as it said, think its best i stop meddling now :oops:
