Device drivers Found lots of software to scan my PC for up to date drivers, but though they all claim to be 'free' none of them are. Yes they'll tell you which devices need an updated driver but then require you to pay for the new driver. Are any of them honest and free means free, to check and to update. update device drivers download

If everything works the way it is supposed to, there is no reason to update your drivers. Don't fix what's not broke. If a website is telling you to download new drivers, they are just trying to scam you.

Is there anything that is not working? You can download the newest drivers here.

If you don't have the disk then let the wizard find the correct drivers for you,point the wizard at the c drive or search the internet with windows assistance.

Remove & reinstall ist the only way sometimes,,,,,

A format may take care of this issue also so back up your stuff and start again

Hope this helps ,please rate me thanks

How can I fix my mouse. I have a gateway laptop and the mouse has begun failing. It stops working even though the drivers are up to date. The device manager says working fine. I even installed Driver...

I am sorry for the issues your are experiencing. In most cases you have to be VERY CAREFUL when using third party Driver Programs as there are a lot of them that are not legitimate and can actually cause more problems than they help. I would recommend first checking with the Gateway website directly to see if there are updates on their site. You may want to start by reverting back to the last driver that was working correctly and I could be wrong but I do not usually truest third party driver programs so I would recommend uninstalling it first, reverting back to the initial driver and then visit the Gateway website to download the updated drivers if they have any. It is sad there are so many of these software programs that claim to help when all they do is cause trouble and in some cases lead to even worse problems with your computer. If you are unsure on how to revert the driver and uninstall the program you installed (especially if it gives you trouble) feel free to contact me or reply and I may be able to help you walk through this or other members may also have solutions for you that are beyond my expertise. I have had this issue with client computers in the past and found that uninstalling the software, reverting back to the initial driver, and then doing an update though the manufacturer, in this case Gateway is the better option and much more safe as they support their hardware on their computers. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions if you run into trouble and I do hope you are able to resolve the issue. I always work with the Manufacture of the laptop or other device as they are much more trusted and have updates, bug fixes, and typically know of the problems that their software and or drivers may have especially when Microsoft does many updates which they have to keep up on and update their drivers and other software on a continuous basis. I hope this helps.

Try scanning it with free version of RadarSync (driver updater) so that you will know if the driver is out-of-date. Out-of-date drivers especially the keyboard will cause a lot of problems.
You can upload RadarSync from here:

Acer aspire 5920g blu ray doesn't work

I don't mean to insult you or anything like that, but does your ROM drive actually say "bluray" on it? some company's advertise that they include it and some don't. If you're sure yours does, Try using different Software like VLC to play the media, maybe test the disk in a different device to see if it's the media or actually the drive.

How can i adjust my screen resol? coz there is only one option in the list that is 800x600 only.

you need to download new drivers/software to upgrade your laptop/pc, i find the best way to do it is to log on to the manufacturer of your laptop/pc and look for support/software/downloads for your model, some manufacturers are very good with their support some have none at all! Dell are very good with their support for example, try and download a piece of software called "speccy" as this is a very good piece of software that tells you all you need to know about your laptop/pc! or driver doctor as this will tell you what drivers you need to upgrade and what ones are out of date, It will ask you to pay for the drivers but just look about the net and you will get the drivers for free! Hope this helps, Also, Have you tried windows updates?

Some of my drivers are out of date and I want to get free driver scanner software so I can scan my notebook at home.

I would not even waste my time with that. If you don't have any problems with running software or games, then I wouldn't even update the drivers. Driver scanners just scan for free but cost money to have them update. How do you know your drivers are out of date? They could be years old but still be the latest driver. Also, if you want to see if there is more current driver then yours, just go onto Compaq's website and check with your laptops model number.

Internal and wireless NIC missing from device manager

Yes try this, go into device manager, start,control panel, system, hardwar, device manager
and uninstall the card, reboot, it should tell you it found new hardware and if you have the proper software installed, it will say it is installing the software for your device, try this first as it will reinstall it as long as the software is there, or you can at that point install from disk,
