Install new drivers

  Hetti 12:57 18 Jan 2008

I ran a scan to tell me which drivers needed driver updates on PC Pitstop website.
It tell me I need quiet a few updates and ask fo me to buy the software, can I maually do these if so can some kind person help me?
The drivers are for
Nvidia ge-force FX 5700LE
Reaktek RTL169/8110 ethernet NIC
Realtek Ac 97 audio for Via (R) audio controller
there are several more but I will see if I can get drivers before I type the others.

Just because there are updates it does not mean you need them if your PC is working OK leave it alone, you would be surprised how many updates can cause problems..

As far as buying software NO NEED you should be able to get whatever latset drivers you really need from manufacturers website...

Don't be too put off, sometimes installing updates is necessary, all you need to do is give your PC the best chance of accepting the new software...
