How to locate Missing Drivers for Older Laptops and Computers

It’s not an easy life dealing with older folk, many of whom harbor this notion that they brought the “best Computer” at the time only for me to tell them that PC’s get old every 2 human years.

In most cases I’m lucky to even shoehorn Windows OS be it Windows XP or 7 onto these very slow devices as described in Tips and Tricks on how to make your Computer run faster.

This is because the keyboard, also an analog input device like the Mouse (even the Optical Mouse is analog!), doesn’t require the use of the Graphics Card to carry out its commands; it communicates directly with whichever program that’s loaded into ...
