scan your computer for missing drivers for free

Typically, when a Windows® operating system is reinstalled the device drivers need to be reinstalled as well. Devices manufacturers usually provide a CD or DVD with the necessary drivers on it, but the issue often becomes finding that precious disc after weeks, months, or years of nonuse.

There are two choices in this situation. The first one is to visit the manufacturer’s website, find the related drivers in the download section, and download them. The second option is to use a driver scanner/updater to determine what drivers are missing and suggest which ones to actually download. Many of these driver updaters are available for purchase, but there is one very smart application that installs your missing drivers for free! Read the instructions below to learn how to scan and replace your drivers at no cost to you.

Free Drivers Updater:

  1. Launch your Internet browser and go to the DriverEasy Online Scan section of its website.
  2. Click on the “Scan Now FREE” grey button at the top and save the installation file on your hard drive.
  3. Launch the downloaded file and click the "Scan Now" button to scan your computer. DriverEasy will find all unknown and out-of-date drivers.
  4. Once the scan is complete, click the "Get Drivers" button to get the latest drivers.
  5. Now you can download the drivers you want. Enjoy!
