Updating drivers?

  TommyRed 23:57 13 Nov 2003

I've tried only once to load an audio driver, without success. Is there a program that will tell me what updated drivers I need or will I just have to visit the sites to find out? I have no discs with my PC as it was given to me like that, but I do have 'Belarc Advisor' which identifies the bits I'd need drivers for. TR

aida32 click here any version

click computer/summary

any hardware highlighted in blue will be a link to the manufacturers website,hover the mouse over it and it should give you a link for drivers.

When you find your sound card site,look for upgrade instructions as well, some cards have to be installed in a certain sequence to run

There was a programme on one of the covers disc recently called drivermagic, it has free 30 day trial and it might be what you need,but always check that the driver they suggest is not older than the driver you already have . I belive this was the one click here

Tried aida32, but I know I have a SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio driver which I either want to replace or upgrade, as it crackles. This driver is not shown at all on the computer/summary. It is shown on one of the reports I did, any ideas why?

That seems to be what I'm looking for, are they the drivers they recommend on the right of the table.

login using



and you should see the page of soundmax drivers

Can you give me a link to the page of SoundMAX drivers, I can't find it. The one I did find didn't have a link to download it after I eventually got there, there were a few angry comments posted, not just by me. I always seem to have trouble with this driver, can't understand why.

Cheers TR
