I do a lot of work on Windows PC's.
When I am installing a new HDD on a computer I frequently play a hit and miss game trying to install hardware drivers.
For example on my Dell laptop, when I go to the Dell support site, I get a choice of a Richo chipset or an Intel chipset driver. I also get choices for the wireless card driver.
I am aware that the various vendors have programs on their sites that will tell me the model number, etc about the computer i am working for but that does not help me much as far as telling me what specific driver chipset driver i need.
A client of mine has a generic PC with an Asus motherboard, The USB ports aren't working. I would like to be able to run a program that tells me what chipset driver I need to install to see if that is the problem.
My question is:
Is their a program, preferably free, that that i can install on a client's computer that will tell me what hardware is on their computers so that i know what drivers to install or tell me what drivers are missing.
