    It's better to check your drivers yourself by going to the manufacturers' websites, and stay away from any crapware you may find on the Web.

    I personally don't trust third-party driver-scanning websites, only the actual computer or device manufacturer websites which have a "scan my system" utility.

    In any case, for laptops & brand-name computers you should be getting the drivers from their respective websites, not from anywhere else. The well-known laptop & computer brands often have proprietary components inside them which require custom-made drivers. Only the appropriate manufacturers have these.

    Hi Joss,
    You need to use the "report" option to the right of your question and ask a mod to move your unrelated question out of this thread and to a thread of its own
