Hi there

I have reinstalled windows 7 and looking for drivers for motherboard/ graphics card etc. When I go onto manufacturers website it comes up with about 30 different downloads. I aint got a clue what they are. Is there any free websites that I can do a PC scan and it finds the correct drivers for me and installs.

Thanks

You could try this one but you are better using your manufacturing website for the proper drivers.

I have used a few websites that give you driver update but I think Windows updates are a good start. Not sure if you still get updates for W7 any more.

Just a note of caution with driver updates. Watch out for malware. Let it get your latest drivers & update them, then I'd recommend uninstalling the program & running ccleaner to get rid of any traces of the program. Then run malware cleaner just to be sure. I got caught out with Iobit Driver Booster recently which cost me 2 days of my life to resolve a problem it had caused. Same applies to Slim Drivers in the link from Govan1x.
