Question

How can I find out what hardware driver is installed inside my computer?

Answer

Go to Start, go to My Computer, go to View System Information, click on the Hardware tab, click on Device Manager to see a list of all hardware devices running on your computer. When you locate the hardware device Right click the name and select Properties. You can then click the Driver tab and view all of the driver information.

You go through each hardware device and update drivers also, however this can be very time consuming. There is a free program called the DriverAgent, available for free download at www.driveragent.com. The DriverAgent software will provide you all sorts of information on which drivers you need to access certain hardware and keep you up-to-date with all the latest releases. We highly suggest trying this first as it can be frustrating to hunt them down manually.
