Update Drivers In Windows With Easy Backup

Every laptop comes with a folder that contain drivers. If you have a PC, then must have a bunch of driver installation CDs lying around. When upgrading a system or doing a fresh installation of Windows, installing drivers is usually a headache.

In Windows 7 you can use Windows Update to install the basic drivers, but not all of them. DriverEasy is a free app that performs a deep scan of your system to detect the hardware and find their drivers. Using this app has two benefits; finding latest drivers and installing the drivers in case the CDs are lost or the driver folder has been mistakenly deleted.

Using DriverEasy is dead-simple, it contains three steps making it one of the most easy-to-use app. Run the program, hit Scan Now and it will start scanning for the hardware and their drivers. The result will be shown in the 2nd step, while you can download and install the drivers from the 3rd and last step.

The app uses a huge 1 million plus driver database and can find drivers for almost all software. Apart from Windows 7, it also works on Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Download DriverEasy


  1. You need to be a little careful with this one. I ran it on a Toshiba Sattelite laptop. It informed me that my USB hub and ports had an update available. What it downloaded was the a Sony/Erikssom software pakage for cellphones to allow you to copy from the phone to your hard drive via a USB cable.

    I've never plugged anything into this laptop other than an external Maxtor hard drive so I'm not sure why it identfied a Sony/Eriksson anything.

  2. not working i`m using windows 7 x64 but working on windows xp on other pc
    so if there any similar free program working on windows 7 x64 plz post it ^^

  3. Another similar program is Device Doctor, I use it, it's very good sometimes and there is a portable version.

    Notice I say sometimes because occasionally you get the wrong driver or an older one.
