Good programs for finding and updating drivers?
So this computer that was in storage for a little while wasn't working so I reinstalled the OS (Windows 7) and I've been reinstalling the drivers, but I can't find the Graphics card driver. For some reason the Toshiba website doesn't even have this particular model number... (Maybe this computer came from a different world-line!)

To the point (as you may have guessed from the title), anyone know a free program for finding and downloading drivers?

So am I correct to assume that this is a Desktop with a separate graphics card, and not integrated graphics? Can you specify the model and serial number of computer?I find the best way is to download and run CPU-Z, here: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html look under the Graphics tab for the manufacturer and model and then go to the manufacturer website...i.e. AMD, Nvidia or Intel. Most driver searching applications I have used have either been proprietary or turned out to be spyware so I don't bother with them.

Laptop. And I checked the manufacturer website, it doesn't seem to have the model number for this computer. Which is why I was looking for a program to detect the hardware and search for the drivers for me. I use to have one, and now can't remember the name..

Driver genius is alright. I've used it and it's good.
