windows have drivers set into the install already it just detects your hardware and installs the correct driver according to the find, however the drivers you install when windows is first installed are out off date so you have to update the drivers already.

You're better off manually updating your drivers, one at a time.

One at a time allows you a chance to spot anything buggy which may occur.

If you entrust the job to Device Manager you risk W7 installing the generic matches that W7 Setup can be fond of using.

Yeah, install from the purest manufacturers site you can... Intel or whetever for your chipset... ditto for your soundchip etc... bear in mind your actual manufacturer may not have the very latest versions on their own website
