    Auto-driver installer/downloader/finder

    So after a very annoying lockup and windows boot failure afterwards i had to format the pc.
    I am so mad right now and not in the mood to download everything manually, is there any safe and nifty driver detector and/or downloader?
    Sorry for the sloppy writting, on my phone atm, and thanks in advance!

    A lot of these programs tend to be scams/spyware. I'd go with the manual download. It's a pain in the butt, but to ensure you don't have anymore lockups and whatnot, having all your current drivers will be instrumental in eliminating possible problem-causers.

    The best option you have to automate the driver process would be manufacturer driver wizards, which tend to be bloatware at best. Just manually download them. -the drivers, that is.
