Depending on your system you can get driver updates from the computer manufacturer. You can also get updated drivers for video cards, sound cards, etc. straight from the individual manufacturer's websites.
You can also just click on a component in device manager and choose update driver, it will ask you if you want to search the internet for a better driver than the one you are currently using.

I don't go in for "free" programs that will search through my hard drive and then find the best driver for me. It's like inviting a bunch of people you don't know to go through your stuff. I certainly wouldn't pay for a program to do that either.
You are better off doing it manually and then you know exactly what is on your system and exactly when it was updated.

U can try some driver updating applications like Driver Agent or "Advanced Driver updater". They will get you the latest updates 4 ur drivers so u dont have to search them they will download the latest updates and will install them. I prefer "Advanced Driver updater" as with it I have to just scan and it update all my drivers .u can download this from cnet .For me it is the best driver updater.

There are a lot of programs helping you to detect and find the correct drivers for you such as driveragent , driverscanner , drivershq.... but they are not free.

one of the good free programs that does an excellent job is MyPCDrivers , go to their home page ( http://www.mypcdrivers.com ) and get your drivers.
