Having problems with your Dell Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

I need help updating drivers.

\015 I downloaded Driver detective and found that I had 13 outdated drivers.I downloaded the first 2 sets of drivers but I am a little unfamiliar with the instructions. In the Read me text for the drivers it outlines installation instructions for instance in silent mode. I am unfamiliar with the process of installing drivers. The instructions indicate the command infinst_autol.EXE -b -s. I don't know where to enter this command in the command line window. When I open the window I am in users.The computer is not recognizing the command infinst_autol.zip which i tried first when I had downloaded zipped files. I think that i have the files open now but i still don't know which installation coammand to enter and where exactly to enter it. is this something that you can help me with?\015

Hello there

\015\012I am all too familiar with Driver Detective. It should not be used for the maintenance of drivers on your system as in most cases, your system will (more often than not) end up very unstable. It is a program to be used (although advertised otherwise) for emergency driver acquisition when you are solely unable to find a specific driver for hardware which is either obsolete or very rare.
\015\012
\015\012The best way to update your system is through Windows Update, and through the manufacturer's site of your system. I am more that happy to provide the latest drivers for your hardware if you would like me to. This would be the safest way as the drivers would come directly from the manufacturer of all the hardware in question, and be the latest stable releases.
\015\012
\015\012Those sourced by Driver Detective are collected in signed, unsigned and beta form and compiled into a database, and can be very dangerous to use.
\015\012
\015\012I highly advise against Driver Detective as the manufacturer's will provide the most stable drivers for your components and motherboard chipset.
\015\012
\015\012Please let me know if you would like me to assist with best-practise driver updating, and let me know the make and model of the computer, and the operating system it is running.
\015\012
\015\012Please avoid the Driver Detective software.

\015\012Kind regards

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?
