Lots of drivers needed...

Hai Thair

I just took a look in my device manager and a rather unpleasent sight met my eyes...

As you might expect i would be eager to fix these drivers as my system wont be running at full speed without them,However if i try to update any of the drivers within the network catergory i get this error

And if i try to update either of the "Other devices" like my coprocessor or the unknown device i get this error

Was this a clean install or an upgrade?


This was a completely clean install from windows 7 build 7100 to windows 7 build 7100 x64 which requiered a complete reinstall as i couldnt upgrade from x86 to x64

This worked for me, drivermax, google it (yahoo, whatever). It will pull all the vista drivers, and some 7 drivers. But they all worked for my hardware. Hope this helps.

Last time i tried drivermax i got a BSOD after 5 attempts at using it,i am definately making a restore point before i use that pile of crap again....if it is the only solution i will use it with extreme caution but if it isint then i wont

I can understand what you are saying, I've had the same happen to me with other programs, that were suggested. There are other programs that do the same thing, I completely forget about belarc advisor. It is also a good program.
Best of Luck.
