Chapter 14. Hardware > Driver Signing

14.5. Driver Signing

Every now and then, when you try to install the software for one new gadget or an-other, you'll see the warning box shown in Figure 14-5. It's telling you that Microsoft has not tested this driver for Windows XP compatibility and programming solidity. (Technically speaking, Microsoft has not put its digital signature on that driver; it's an unsigned driver.)

If the message shown in Figure 14-5 appears before you, your first instinct should be to contact the manufacturer or its Web site to find out if a newer XP-certified driver is now available.
