Hi.
I have scanned my system with driveragent, and it said that some drivers are missing (Intel, Dell's bluetooth, etc) After downloading them from manufacturer, additional scans still show that there are newer versions.
Could someone take a look ? My PC is DELL Latitude D820, Windows Vista Ultimate , Intel Core 2, T7200, 2Gb ram, 64 bit operating system.

First, the Driver Agent scan is only a suggestion based on what's in their database. I suggest using the scan with a grain of salt - and checking with the device manufacturer for the latest available version. Rely on that rather than a 3rd party interpretation of what you need.

Secondly, 64 bit drivers are a bit scarce - so are these beta drivers or full release version drivers?

Finally, with a proprietary system like a Dell, it's difficult to tell what's current and what isn't. Dell releases drivers for it's hardware, and they may be direct from the manufacturer - or they may have changes that are necessary for the Dell hardware. So it's somewhat of a crapshoot as to what's "current". Generally I advise that you get your drivers from the actual manufacturer of the hardware concerned - but with motherboards this distinction is hard to make (should you get the Dell chipset drivers or the Intel - and if you go with the Intel, is certain essential Dell stuff left out?).
