Hi again. I'm trying to update my drivers. I used DriverAgent to scan my PC and it gave me a list of all the stuff I have to download. Then of course it asked me to pay to join which I don't want to do. Is there any way to get these drivers for free? I'm specifically after the graphics card updates.

TIA

DriverAgent flags everything up as out of date. Please don't pay them anything, all drivers downloadable from the Internet are free.

Graphics drivers here for your setup:

Ah yes, I'm just on that site now. Saving the display driver just now. I'm going to put it in the drivers folder and hope for the best. Should work shouldn't it?

Okay, I downloaded the driver on to my desktop and ran the setup.exe file, then restarted my PC. I still have the updated driver folder on my desktop, should I now put that in my drivers folder? And delete the old data?
