If you have upgraded your PC to Windows 8, or purchased new Microsoft hardware and find that it is not working properly, you may need to update your drivers. Like every other Windows operating system, Windows 8 requires drivers that have been designed and developed specifically for it.
After upgrading to Windows 8, some users report having issues with network connectivity, unstable WiFi connections or problems with their video card or graphics processor, particularly on gaming systems. In some cases, the PC fails to detect the printer, or reports that their printer is not working. Sometimes generic messages such as Windows 8 cannot load the drivers appear after an operating system upgrade.
The problem is that all connected devices, including Microsoft devices, need updated drivers to work properly under Windows 8. If you have recently updated to Windows 8, or your new Windows 8 computer, laptop or notebook fails to recognize your old devices, you also need to update all Microsoft drivers in order to fix problems related to your Microsoft hardware.
On Windows 8, not all Microsoft drivers and updates are available through the built-in Windows Update feature. That's why it is important to check the Microsoft website for drivers or to use DriverGuide to keep up with the latest drivers for your devices.
