i purchased driver detective, but i not a real fan of it.
yes it will update your drivers, but it doesnt put genuine drivers in, it finds drivers from a alternate brands and uses them. (it uses a lot of Real drivers)
you can do the same thing yourself by knowing whats in your computer and going to the manufacturers website, and get the proper driver updates.
here how in xp and vista
XP or Vista click run and type “msinfo32″ will give a comprehensive listing of devices in your computer
The problem is, that your description is not accurate enough to get good results in Google.. To get around this we hi-light the proper description and numbers of the device and copy it. Then paste it into Google with the word driver.
:To find out what is in you computer do this
I find the google search are successful using the text and part numbers displayed in these results.
click – start – help and support
type in the word “processor” in the search
in the results you can find out the hardware and what Microsoft software you have.
You can print it as well.
Hi-light the card name and model etc and press control +c to copy it.
Go to Google and paste it in and add the word driver.
In the results choose one looks like the manufacturer, download the latest driver to your desktop
If its an exe file double click it to install it.
If its driver dll or cab file extension
click empty desktop >hit F1 key >type in device manager
open device manager >expand the device >right click and update driver.
Point the wizard to your file.
Find the drivers
