How do you update a Dell P 42l to Windows 8? If your laptop or notebook run Windows then you need to think about Windows Update. This is a free application that Microsoft offers on all their operating systems. It is available to all models and also for older computers if they are older. It needs to be checked at least once a week although it is rarely required.
If you have not installed any updates before, then the chances are that you will need to do this.
How often this application will need to update depends on various factors. For example, if you have been using Windows Vista then you might only need to update the program once in a while. There are other situations where you may need this update more frequently. For example, if you use a lot of programs on your laptop or if there are new features added to programs that you already have installed.
The Dell P 42l is no different to many laptops. It has the standard specifications including a memory capacity of 1 GB. That means that you will not need to go in and add any extra RAM. Other features that you might want to consider changing to include the screen size, graphics, processor speed, and hard drive size. Of course, if you do not have a lot of money to spend on a laptop, then you may not need to change these features at all.
One important question that you need to ask yourself is “how often do you update the operating system?”
This is actually more of a general question than a specific one. If you have an average of two updates a week (which is very common with most laptops), then you might want to consider having the update software installed. You can download the update manager from the manufacturer’s website. If you don’t have it, then search for the program on the Internet to find a download link.
Now that you have your program downloaded and installed, you need to update the system so that it will recognize all of the new settings. The upgrade manager will allow you to select the programs that you want to update and will then walk you through the process. First, you will be prompted to select the hardware drivers. Once you have selected the drivers, you can then go through and select the programs that you would like to update. Finally, you will need to select the operating system to complete the process.
If you are like most people who have Dell computers, you will be glad to know that there is not a whole lot of work involved. It is simply going to require that you highlight the particular program that you want to update, and then clicking on the “Update” button. After the program has updated, your computer should begin to recognize all of the changes. Of course, if you have any old drivers or programs on your computer that you don’t want to update, this process may not be necessary.
If your Dell has an automatic driver update feature, it is likely that it will update your hardware drivers automatically.
However, in order for your computer to recognize the new devices that you have added, you will need to manually add them. This can prove to be a time consuming task, especially if you have many different devices. Therefore, you may want to consider having your computer perform automatic updates whenever you have major device changes, such as adding new speakers or upgrading your camera.
When you have made all of the needed software and device upgrades, you can then proceed to the actual installation process. Just like when you install other programs, you will need to ensure that you have sufficient space. Although it may seem like a small upgrade, you may find that the space was not adequate to accommodate the new software and hardware. If this is the case, then you will need to re-install the software and then again, ensure that you have enough space. Then you should be good to go!
