Drivers can make you crazy unless you take the easy way out. If your computer is acting strangely or doesn't seem to talk with your printer or other devices, rest assured you aren't alone. Even if you just bought a new computer, it's only a matter of time before you'll feel like pulling your hair out. To read more about drivers and what you can do about them, be sure to check out the latest NNT report online at http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs065/1101458487892/archive/1103609555727.html .
