Hey, is there by any chance a program that lets you update everything or close to everything in bulk and finds the drivers for you? For example, the sound driver, track-pad driver, graphics driver and so on?

 

And also, since I've never done this before, how do you update BIOS?

 

Any help is appreciated!:)

Oh, yes, sorry, I forgot to add it. It's an Asus X555SJ laptop (Intel Pentium N3700 quad-core @1.6Ghz, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM @1600Mhz, Windows 10 Pro). :)

Asus has software called Asus Manager, that should update drivers and BIOS.

There are a number of 'driver managers' on the market and the general concensus about these on BC is that they are 'snake oil'.

 

Drivers seldom cause problems and the best place to get them from is the manufacturer's web-site. For the laptop you list, then ASUS. For a desktop it is a little more complicated because you may well have components from different manufacturers which means visiting more web-sites but the principle holds.

 

In general, if it's working don't fix it remains good advice, but if a device - such as your trackpad - is giving problems and re-installing the drivers doesn't work then the manufacturer's web-site is the place to go. I don't know of any way of automatically updating more than one device's drivers at aa time but you would very seldom need to do this.
