Click the Download button next to the out-of-date or missing driver. The correct version will be downloaded and installed automatically. Or, you can click the big green Download All button to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out-of-date on your system. Drivers For Free quickly scanned our system and returned four drivers that were out of date: for our audio controller, our printer, our PCI bridge, and our universal host controller.
