    Is there a program that will examine what hardware you have on your computer and automatically check the internet for any new drivers?

    Yes, it's called Windows XP. Windows Update will let you know whenever there has been a new driver added under the WHQL program.

    If you want beta drivers or uncertified released drivers there are programs available. Do a google for "driver update program".

    I would suggest not getting drivers from Winupdate as 99% of the time they are nice and old.

    Everest (based on Aida32) is the closest thing that will do the job you want. It recognizes several manufacturers of several components of your PC and provides you with a link to their website, where you can download drivers.

    http://www.lavalys.com/ is the link. Enjoy. xD


    Edit: Seems Everest now supplies driver download links as well. Good for you, I guess. :D
