I seem to have some outdated drivers. Is there any source out there where I can find or have a tool that will scan the computer and help me update any outdated drivers?

There is, depending on what drivers !

Try PSI -> To find out what programs need to be updated, please download and run the:

Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI)

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 it didn't detect any outdated drivers.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.

I assume it is Realtek AC'97 audio driver you need, then go here to Realtek http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false

download the (Excution file) save to desktop, double click to install

The site is slow

Hope this helps ;-)

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.
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.

If you can't find this information download Belarc Advisor here [color=#000020]http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html[/color]


and post the findings.

Try Driver Max or Driver Genius to check for out of date drivers




I've used both and they pick everything up




Hope this helps
