    I'm looking for a program that I can use on newly formated computers that will detect and install drivers. I was thinking about Driver Genius. Is this a good one, or is there a better one out there? Thanks.

    What you should just do is go to the manufacutrer's website and install the drivers there. If you need help finding them tell us the make and model of the machine and we can go onto the site and post back here with a link.

    Just makes it easier when you're working on a few computers at once and the drivers aren't actually listed on the site. If I can just run a program that automaticallt detects all or most of the most up to date drivers for a computer, that saves me some time.

    You could also just burn the drivers to a cd. What is the make/model of the pc anyway?

    My experience suggests that none of these programs are worthwhile. Imagine the database they'd have to have to be truly up to date.
    It's not difficult to find the necessary drivers in most cases.
