What's the make and model number of your motherboard? I have not come across a site that lists all the drivers for every make out there. Normally the OEM maker's support page has drivers for all their hardware manufactured listed.





Do whatever you want to do man.

Driver Genius Pro does an exceptional job, we ended up buying a few copy's for the workshop as we were sick of hunting for drivers too.
You could install it and find out what drivers your looking for, but without a registration i dont think it will let you download.
Then there is sites like driverguide, but they require a registration too.

I wouldnt trust any program that claims to find drivers for you unless it is made by the official web site of the product you are trying to get a driver for.

Best bet is to get it from the makers website. Unless its realy old  or its a packardbell you shouldnt have a problem find them. If you have problems post the make and model of the hardware you are trying to get a driver and i will find it for you.

BEWARE alot of driver finder programs screw your system up get money off you and dont actually get a driver that works correctly.




Hu? did i do that?

Does the motherboard manufacturer's site not have drivers? If not you should at least be able to see what is required.

If you're using something like Windows 7 there is also very little need in many cases to install any additional drivers.
