Probably, but if that is the case, they will direct you to the driver or a site that might have the new driver. They of course have more contacts than most of us, and if the new driver is out, they will know where it is.

It really doesn't. Not to your Computer anyway. What it does do though, is tell Microsoft about Faults. Then of course, they set about sorting them out so that next time somebody sends a fault like that, they direct them to how to fix it

Sometimes, though, if you do send it, they link you to some sort of page in the Microsoft database to tell you what might be causing the problem.

Yeah; direct you to how to fix it :P I can't remember but I think it is ce.microsoft.com... maybe something else... Eitherway it has helped me on a number of occassions.
