Drivers get old pretty fast in the computing world as manufacturers discover bugs and better methods to make their hardware work faster and better. USB Ports is a good example. I see the Intel Chipset Device Software is updated frequently too. ASUS usually posts updated device drivers on their website but not immediately upon release. That's why I recommend these programs that scans your system for out-of-date drivers. If you are familiar with Google or Bing searching, you can use those engines to find the drivers yourself and update or you can pay a small registration fee to have the program download and install the updates instead.

Most driver update tools are more trouble than they are worth, and free is nt always as it seems. You need to start learning abt your pc. In, ctr panel. device manager, it will show you all your installed devices. Each device has the date and driver version and device name, just search each one  and install as necessary. Remeber it is a learining curve and you are bound to break things, but that is how we all learn, one setp at a time.
