What is a DLL?
'DLL' is an abbreviation of 'Dynamic Link Library'. A DLL file can be part of a program or of the Windows operating system. When you miss a certain DLL, or have the wrong version of a DLL installed on your computer, your system can crash or behave strangely, or a program might fail to function.
Solution: download the right DLL and install it on your system!

What is a driver?

Find Bios upgrades
What is a BIOS?
The BIOS (= 'Basic Input Output System') can be considered the "startup" software for your PC. It also controls several important functions, like input/output, and without it your PC will not run. A bios upgrade can be advantageous if you experience device compatibility problems, or other more general non-tracable errors. When everything seems to cause problems on your computer, think of a BIOS upgrade. See also this Wikipedia article.
Most systems allow you to update the BIOS by running a small program you can download freely. To find the software that can upgrade the bios for you, you usually need to know which motherboard is inside your computer.
