    I had an amazing program that would find all the missing drivers by scanning your system then letting you download the missing driver. This was a free program and I can't remember the name of it nor can I locate it on google.. any ideas what it could have been? if not do you know of a similar program? don't want to waste anymore time downloading a program only to find it no to be fully free.

    You're brave! i'd be very reluctant to use one of those systems, never know where it's downloading from or what it's getting.

    If there's something i don't know what it is driver wise, into properties of the item, hardware ID and look it up on http://www.pcidatabase.com/

    I think this would be a great app at identifying what drivers are missing... but if the sources of the app are pointing to vendor drivers, I don't see it as being a problem. I would only load it on to a desktop, wouldn't use it for servers ;)

    TBH there haven't been that many bits of hardware that weren't discovered by the OS, those that didn't work correctly actually didn't take that long to get working with a quick google.
