I seem to have some outdated drivers. Is there any source out there where I can find or have a tool that will scan the computer and help me update any outdated drivers?

No luck with the scan.. it didn't detect any outdated drivers. Basically I have a "Multimedia Audio Controller" showing up in the Device Manager that doesn't have a driver. I have no idea where to begin figuring out what this hardware is or where to even go searching for a driver. Any ideas? Thanks for the help in advance.

Downloaded and installed but no luck on the driver. Device manager is still showing no driver installed for "Multimedia Audio Controller". I don't know how to even begin trying to manually find out what hardware is missing the driver and then what driver is needed. Is there anything I can use to scan the computer to give details on hardware and driver details (especially for the one that's missing)?

I need a little more information, what is the make and model number of you computer, or if custom built what is the motherboards make.<BR sab="315">Look again at device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers, expand and look for a listing that just gives sound, if we can identify the sound device we can get an updated driver.<BR sab="316"><BR sab="317">If you can't find this information download Belarc Advisor here [color=#000020]http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html[/color] <br/> <br/><BR sab="320">and post the findings.<BR sab="321">
