Does anyone know a free site that could tell me which drivers I need and where to find them?

Is driveragent.com worth the 29.95?

I have tried using everest to find the drivers but the sites dont have it or I am scared to pick the driver myself.
I need a program that will make it trickyproof and give me a button to click saying this is what you need, click here.

Thanks for your help and I wasn't sure if this is where this question went but it does concern audio and video.

If mods want to move it I won't be offended.

Thanks in advance for the help you might give me and the help you have given me.

TBH you should just go to the manufactures website and click on "downloads/updates" then input your card info as requested. It's extremely simple, and takes no time at all to do. This is for both sound and graphic cards.

IMHO, paying the $29.95 would be a waste of money, as you can get the info for free from the manufacturers website.

Alternately, you could probably google "newest drivers for Nvidia 7800 GTX" or whatever your card is (both sound and graphics).

What type of graphics card/sound card do you have (ie. radeon 9800 pro or sb! live 24-bit)?

SIS onboard cards, went to the site and used their tool to find drivers, downloaded what they said and got error messages.

I think the simpler solution is going to be to upgrade my sound and video cards.

Any suggestions?
