    Hi,

    Is there such a thing as a free Driver Checker, that will tell you what drivers are missing/incorrect etc, and will download them for you? Without having to pay?

    Thanks in advance.

    Basically -- NO. I can't definitively say that ALL of them are no good, as I haven't tried them ALL. But, the ones I have tried were worthless.

    They will tell you your drivers are out of date, and then offer to update them for you -- for a fee! And THAT is the catch -- the fee! They won't even let you download one update to check if it's legit.

    When I checked these, they told me several of my drivers were out of date -- and I know for a FACT that ALL my drivers are up to date.
