Finding Drivers

I am wondering where I could find all the drivers for all my devices in my computer. I have looked on the AMD site. But I could not find a driver or anything for my processor. Or anything else on my computer. What about my LAN card. Is there a driver or anything for that. Is there anything else I should look for a driver for on my computer. I would like to try and keep all my stuff up to date. I am kind of new at this. So I am trying to learn as much as I can. I would like any info at all about keeping my computer up to date. or Safe.

Download HWInfo32 and use the categories on the left to browse for your GPU, LAN card and any other drivers. Then look for those manufacturers via Google to find the necessary updates. That being said, last time I updated the driver for my Ethernet NIC it stopped working, so stick with your graphics and sound drivers.

You won't find a driver for your CPU, it doesn't need one. What you should be looking for is the drivers for your motherboard and other hardware. For the motherboard the primary driver needed is the chip-set driver. After that, drivers for any onboard sound, video, network etc. I'd start by going to the motherboard manufacturers web site and look up your particular make model. After that you do the same for any add-in cards like Video etc. The big thing is to know exactly what you have in your PC. Just make a list and save it as a text file for reference. Programs like Speccy - System Information - Free Download - can give most if not all the info you need to figure out what you have.
