Anybody who's ever owned a bargain notebook already knows that digging for drivers in the depths of the World Wide Web can be an exercise in wasted time and frustration. That's what makes a simple, easy-to-use driver update tool a genuine treasure, and this point is clearly not lost on the engineers at LG Electronics. If, for example, you install a fresh copy of Windows XP on your notebook after a drive crash, all necessary drivers and tools are available from the LG Intelligent Update CD with the push of a few buttons. The service is easy to understand and use, even for novices who have no idea about how to set up and configure notebooks on their own.
The LG Intelligent Update program runs unnoticed in the background and keeps all drivers on the notebook current. It connects to and searches LG's Internet support servers for new and important updates. If that search produces any results, it informs the user of what's available.
As always, which updates actually get installed remains under the user's control. After downloading a driver, if you don't have time to wait for its installation to run to completion, that's no problem. Drivers are automatically stored on the hard drive, ready for you to install later on.
