Hi,

Has anyone got any decent programs that actually do what they are meant to, ie update your drivers. Ive seen alot that just give you shitty false info.

Im able to pay about $30us for a decent program as long as its good.

I just figured it would save me from searching the web if ic an gert a program that can cross reference my drivers with a database and allow me to auto update or something

Cheers

jack

Save your self the money, google is your friend. Browse to the manufactures websites and save the URL's in your favorites. Examples for me are Nvidia driver page, Gigabytes DS3P P965 page and Realtek Audio driver page.
Then each month, or when I remember, download the latest driver.
I've just update my Audio and Network drivers by about 6 months of revisions.

It saves your $30 and you avoid the 'crappy' software.

I find "Everest" works wonders..
Doesn't exactly download drivers for you, although it tells you exactly whats inside the machine, which is all you really need.

I really hate having to open a system just to find out what the dvd drives are, or what motherboard it is etc

Good luck!

For finding hardware Start>Accessories>System Tools>System Info.
Even lists the driver versions.

Then as jack said go to the manufacturers website to get the latest.
Sod paying someone to provide the already available info.

aliali: Don't you find sysinfo can be a bit cryptic when you haven't already installed drivers? :)
