    Hey !

    I check out this site... http://www.drivershq.com/ and they got an engine that is supposed to check the drivers on ur pc and tells you if they are updated or not. It told me that I got " Correct Drivers Installed: 65%

    WRONG Drivers Installed: 35% and to download the "so called" correct drivers I need to pay 30 $.
    I won't pay and I wanted to know if there is a software or other site that will do the same work and check my drivers instead of checking each site of each company and downloading the drivers..

    Thank you !

    Most of the "new" drivers that scan recommends on drivershq.com are betas and they cause more problems than they solve.
    In fact most of the drivers on that site are betas. :twisted:
