What is a reliable driver update software?

Nathaniel Fleur November 28, 2012

I’m also looking for a driver updater to update my PC’s drivers regularly, that’s why I looked into this forum.

I checked out Driver Max and it’s interesting, but I also came across a popular tool for updating drivers: Driver Detective (driverdetectiveregistrationkey.co). I want to try out this program due to its positive reviews, but I want to know which is better for me. Any feedback guys? Thanks in advance.

    I've tried several driver update software and none of them were really up to date with their drivers. It's still best to go on the website of the manufacturer of your hardware.

    Start with 3DChip, from http://www.3dpchip.com/3dpchip/3dp/chip_down_en.php
    It's very simple after you install this. Just give it a try.

    If you are dying to use a driver software then you can use driver reviver which on my opinion isn't bad...i'm using it...the best option would be to check the manufacturer website and download the driver updates from there.......go to the websites according to your motherboard manufacturers website....

    Actually no software is capable to manage all drivers. The best is to check the updates manually. Maybe more hassle and time-consuming, but it's more reliable to do it yourself.

    Windows 7 already does a good job of updating your drivers try running it first to see if any do need updates. Go to your vendors site to get any updates for the laptop/desktop, as Jan stated maybe your video drivers will need updating, but nothing should need updating regular.

    As i see your using windows 7, you really shouldn't rely on driver software, let windows 7 do this job for you, it will be better to mess around with your drivers update process

    The only drivers you should (have to) update regularly are the graphics drivers. All others only when necessary e.g. to fix an existing issue or if they provide benefits like better performance (see release notes).

    For example the Intel Chipset Drivers are updated regularly however the only change is support and updates to the newest (recently released) chipset. The only thing changing for "you" would be the version number.

    Also, any driver update could introduce new issues or an failed update render your system unstable. Therefor I can't recommend automating that process.

    I actually found myself in the position where I rolled back to older (network card) drivers as the newest one caused serious issues for me (regular connection drops, low speed)

    SlimDrivers is OK. Problem with many updaters especially for older components is you don't know where they get the drivers from. Most of them scan your system for free and then ask for your cash to do anything else.

    there is a review on Driver Detective

    it is up to you to decide, you can check few other driver updater, download them do scan see what they detect and also what they offer as special. I see Driver detective license is good for 10PC!

    also i think DriverMax PRO - 30 days free trial, you have time to decide on this.

    Here's the deal, a device's driver after the initial install probably will not be updated that often and even when it is, unless you are experiencing, you won't have to update to it. Basically things like driver detective do is update drivers, yes, but after you pay them however much $. If you are experiencing problems with a specific device, go to the manufactures website.
    Sorry if this doesn't directly answer your question, if you want something that takes care of driver updates I have heard good things about the aforementioned Driver Detective...
    good luck
