Where can I get free good software that checks my drivers and helps me find, download and install up to date drivers.  Like DriverMagic, but without the fee.

    Also, Windows Update (IE -> Tools -> Windows Update) will sometimes identify drivers that need updating. Click on the Custom button, and look in the left column for any "Hardware (optional)" updates.

    to my knowledge, there is no free service like the one you ask.
    Driver Magic is good, but not free    :-)

    Just as a side note, I did try using Driver Magic (Quite nice) but, it stated that my drivers for my video card were out of date.  I decided to check my control panel (Nvidia's) and they were up to date.  

    Just so ya know that apparently it does make mistakes. :)

    Side note, since video card are the most updated drivers, Nvidia website does offer a system scan to let you know if your video card drivers are out of date.
