Hi Knight_Rider :)

Is it possible to have your laptop brand and model, and also exact version of Windows 10 (32 or 64-bit)?

This doesn't give me the model of your laptop. I can see that it's an HP Pavilion however. Launch the HP Support Assistant program, the model should be displayed in the bottom area of the program.

Press on the Windows + R keys and enter dxdiag then press on Enter. Accept to verify if the drivers are digitally signed. In the window that will open, your computer brand and model should be displayed (somewhere in the middle).

Alright. On my Pavilion G6 laptop, the product number can be found under the battery. Are you able to remove the battery and look under it (on the case) and see if you can find the product number and/or model?

I strongly advise you to uninstall DriverMax and to never use such programs again since they can damage your system at a point where a reinstallation of Windows might be needed.
  • Drivers are "middlemen" between your OS (Windows) and your hardware (computer). They control and facilitate the interaction between Windows and hardware components, to deliver a "message", nothing more;
  • Having all of your drivers up to date, all the time, will not improve the performance of your system, nor your computer. You cannot increase the hardware performance of a component over the current capabilities it have;
  • Driver updates are released to fix a bug or an issue with a previous release of that driver. Not everyone with the same drivers will experience the issue, so if you are having no problems with the drivers you are running, you don't need to update them. "If it's not broken, don't fix it";
  • You can download drivers for free from your computer/laptop manufacturers website, or from the hardware component manufacturers website. You don't need to pay for any of them, if you are being asked to pay for drivers it is likely a scam;
  • Only drivers from the computer/laptop manufacturers website, or the hardware component manufacturers website are considered official (legitimate and working). You should not download drivers from anywhere else;
  • Driver Updaters are a scam, they try to convince you that you need these programs in order to make your system perform well, which is false;
  • It has been tested and proven that these programs will detect outdated drivers on a system that have the most updated drivers from the manufacturer, which shows that they don't work and/or they try to make you install "newer" suspicious drivers;
  • The goal of the distributors of such programs is to make money by making you buy their useless product, or install additional software (PUPs) when you install their program. Your system will perform worse with these programs installed than without;
This being said, such programs could be seen as "pure scam" and should be avoided at all cost.

Here's some articles that talks about Driver Updater programs and why they shouldn't be used:If you can give me your laptop model number, I can give you the drivers. That's all I need. So take a look under the battery please :)

Use HP Auto Detect webpage:

http://h22213.www2.hp.com/ediags/gmd/about.aspx?lc=en&cc=us

This should give you your product model.

There's Windows 10 Intel drivers for your model:

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71920.exe

But no AMD drivers. However, if we go on AMD Drivers webpage and enter the information for your system...

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows%2010%20-%2064

Ta-da. Download Catalyst Software Suite and it'll install your drivers.
