Although new Toshiba products likely include the latest instructions, owners of devices manufactured by the electronics company can download free hardware updates. These updates fix flaws discovered in the operating software or hardware firmware. To ensure optimum performance, owners should visit Toshiba's support website. There, the latest hardware and software drivers are available. Manufacturers develop drivers to translate native commands into a language understood by various devices, such as a monitor or other peripheral.
