Drivers/DLL's/BIOS

Freebyte's guide to drivers, dll's and bios upgrades  
 
Last updated at september 18, 2000
 

Introduction

This page lists some useful links for finding Windows drivers, files, PC BIOS updates, support and technical information.

  

What is a DLL?

'DLL' is an abbreviation of 'Dynamic Link Library'. A DLL file usually contains a library of program code which is used by other applications. There are applications which won't run until you have the correct DLL's installed into your Windows or System directory.

  

What is a driver?

A driver is a program that controls a device, e.g. a printer, keyboard or a soundcard. If your system does not contain the correct the correct driver for a device, the device will not function at all, incorrectly or your computer might even crash.

  

What is a BIOS upgrade?

The BIOS is a very fundamental piece of software which takes care of the the basic control tasks inside your computer. 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.
To find the program (or ROM memory CHIP on older systems) which can upgrade your bios, you usually need to know which motherboard is inside your computer. A ROM memory chip you have to buy, but most newer systems allow you to update the BIOS automatically after running a small program you can download freely.
