Windows 7: None of my drivers are updating! Not even my new monitor!

None of my drivers are updating! Not even my new monitor!

I've no idea what's going on here, but NONE of my drivers are updating and anything new I plug into a USB port, windows 7 won't have anything to do it.

I'm certain something is missing. I don't know if it's a virus or some kind, but I can tell you now that my install shield (64 bit) is missing.

What on earth is going on? It won't even recognise a new mouse or keyboard!

There really HAS to be a way of fixing it. I posted a few pictures about it but it seems strange that it won't even install a monitor properly???? The monitor I'm using now is still usable, but it doesn't have it's own driver and as a result some software won't work on it as it acts as a secondary monitor (although it works fine and is actually pretty darn good).

Is there a way around this? I've tried an update and windows still won't detect it!

Please help, reinstalling windows is a real pain as I have a custom made PC that my friend built (who has now moved away really far) so I have no idea how to reinstall the graphics card, do a proper partition, etc. And I know NOTHING about this. If I did it I may screw things up and lose all the saved stuff on my partition.

If someone could help out that would be much appreciated.

Regards-

BOC.

Seems like corrupted windows.Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker test.

If it doesn't solve your problem you can try repair install Repair Install

If this fails then try re-installing the windows installer:
Download: Windows Installer 4.5 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

Hi there thanks for replying.

I'll try that soon but what concerns me is that maybe my hard drive might be failing. I makes a loud sound from time to time, I've run tests on it and it seems ok, but I'm just concerned that maybe one of the symptoms of a failing hard drive is that it won't detect new drivers.

I'll look into downloading that software asap but I am a bit concerned because I purchased a new USB external to back it up just in case but it won't even recognise that!

I'm thinking it might be a virus, I'll try the download but if that fails looks like I'll have to reinstall windows.

If you go to the manufacture of your hard drive , more than likely they will have diagnostic programs for the hard drive . Better to be safe ...

Hi there, thanks. I've downloaded Driver genius pro, so fingers crossed, that should solve things out.

Drivers Not Updating
I need to update all my drivers. I have tried to do it the traditional way through the control panel but my drivers claim to not need updating. Is there another fix? I would prefer not to download driver update software that requires me to pay them for updating my drivers. Thanks in advance....
