    Hi all! There is a opensource/freeware software to find the newest driver for your pc and detect automatically what drivers you need to download?

    Simplest and safest thing is to know what devices you have, then do it yourself. I know thats an oversimplification of things, but its a good thing to know and saves the extra clutter of a driver finder. Some manufactures make it really easy. ATI for instance have monthly driver releases, based on year.month. This months release when it comes out will be 10.5!

    A driver finder may be beneficial if there is a device you simply can not work out what it is - but then of course, if something isn't working then its probably that! ;)
