I'm looking to update drivers for my computer but, having bought it second-hand and being a complete beginner, I don't know every piece of hardware that's in it. Is there somewhere on the net where I can scan my computer to find out what hardware I have? Preferably one that doesn't ask me for a subscription since, I may be able to find the drivers myself... I think???
As johndrew says do not update the BIOS in particular unless you have to. Theres no advantage in updating the BIOS unless its to do something like add support for a new processor and if you get it wrong the PC will no longer run.
Cheers lads; I'm not getting any problems with my computer so I'll definitely be taking the advice of "if it ain't broke...". Just looking to update my soundcard. I use my computer for making music mainly; running from a soundmax driver alone. The software I got with the computer doesn't install properly. Luckily, I've managed to get a driver, from the disc, to operate my soundcard. I'm, without a doubt, a complete beginner when it comes to the technical side of all this. Again, thanks for your help.
