Windows Update? (I don't trust third party tools in general; they miss things, or often install incorrect or incompatible drivers. Do it by hand - this is a bad idea.) –  Shinrai May 12 '11 at 14:20
    
amen to that, Shinrai –  Blomkvist May 12 '11 at 14:23
    
Most of these tools and websites are spammers. Do not trust any of them. Just rely on Windows Update –  BBlake May 12 '11 at 15:30

http://www.devicedoctor.com/ looks free. I can't vouch for these types of programs, because I don't recommend them at all. It's usually not very hard to update the drivers manually, and most hardware manufacturer's websites have links to their most current drivers for their products. That along with Windows Update, should get you up to date in no-time at all.

Agree that using Windows update for drivers is not a great idea. Have seen a Windows update video drive create no end of grief too may times. Many vendors like Lenovo and HP and I belive Dell have a tool that does this.
