And I doubt you are alone in that :
e.g. I typed "IPS Driver Error" into Google, and it returned 1,560,000 pages, the vast majority of which seems to be database/forums related.
A maybe over-simplistic analogy, but sometimes computer technology reminds me of an amazing house of cards, millions of cards, but if one of those cards starts wobbling, then the cards above are in trouble. The lower down the card, the bigger the trouble above. (And this potential for problems is exacerbated by the fact that no one single person created the entire house of cards, but hundreds of thousands of different people created it.)
