    (Problem With Drivers / Devices) Please Help Me ~ October ~



    As you can tell from looking at this; there are Outdated Devices / Drivers.
    Problem that I have is that I apparently MUST purchase the Software in order to update them.
    So, can someone please help me? Because these 3 Drivers / Devices are causing BSOD no doubt.
    I mean I'm running Windows 10, and it seems to make sense that outdated drivers would make the BSOD show up.
    I've read many threads, many posts, and it all seems to lead to outdated drivers (Mostly) Please can you help me.
    I'm really sick of my PC crashing or Windows 10 BSOD taking over what I want to do.
    Thankfully, it only ever crashes when I'm on a Game (I think) or when I have Google Chrome running / browsing.
    Opera doesn't cause any problem whatsoever, so, can anyone help me solve this problem? Thank you.

    To be honest; I'm sick of it being outdated drivers, and I need to correct that. Anyone got ideas?

    I would be very careful believing anything a 3rd party device program reports to you. Their main objective is to try and scare you so you will want to buy their software!!! You should try and get your updates for your drivers either from the maker of your computer, or motherboard. Those can be trusted. Also from Intel site too but only IF you know exactly what driver you need and it IS made by Intel.

    Never trust any 3rd party device software. But the choice is always yours.

    Mike is correct you DO NOT need to buy drivers, as he said its scareware, remove that program.
    Just go into Device manager> select the driver>Right click on it > Update.
    The Sata driver may be updated, not so sure about the Realtek ethernet driver,
    But i wouldnt worry about the Firewire driver.

    Thanks, I appreciate the second thoughts, and I have now removed the ScareWare ~ Perfect for Halloween, Ha-ha, but yeah, it's not removed. I am starting to feel that the SATA one needs updating (I just don't know where to find a Legitimate download) ~ Please Help ~ As for the other two, again same problem. : (

    I completely agree with you. 3rd party device programs have failed in my opinion, I mean they work because the (Free) ones actually update your devices. I don't like the ones that lie to you so you end up buying the software PRO edition. I just need to know where I can find the devices I've listed in that image. Can you please help me find the links to all these devices? : (

    Download the AMD SATA driver directly from AMD's site. Maybe it is a component of the chipset driver rather than a stand-alone SATA driver, give us your hardware specs to guide you exactly. The IEEE 1394 (Firewire) controller will be updated automatically from Windows Update, or you can see at notebook's download site for a driver. Download the Realtek LAN driver directly from Realtek. After installing these, you should not have any problem. Also I fear that the software is actually a malware! Even if it was free, I don't trust third-party programs mess with my drivers and registry settings! Manually updating each driver is the safest route. And it doesn't take too much time. About half an hour to find and download the drivers. Installation is fast.

    Okay, is there anything you recommend to find all my Specs? I really need the help with this and I feel you and everyone else who have commented know how to help me. You said I should give you my hardware specs so you can guide me exactly.
    I just need to know where I can get these quickly? Is there a software or anything I can use to get this for you?

    A nice utility that gives hardware specs (computer->summary or devices section), software information (including lost installation keys) and also has benchmarks for CPU, RAM and graphics is Aida64. The unregistered version just hides some details, but it should do. You don't have to buy a registered version. Using that you can even monitor your temperatures (computer->sensors) if you have an overheating problem. It's a very good tool for us Technicians. I usually install it to identify hardware in a new Windows installation, before installing any drivers, so I know which drivers to download. There is an option to export a report as html, so you can include it here or you can just post a screenshot of the relevant window.

    Thanks. I really appreciate it. I've done what you said, downloaded the software and here we go:

    I hope this helps : )

    I also tried a BIOS scan and it seems that there is (1) that needs updating.
    So, I asked someone who knows a lot about BIOS updating, and apparenlty its very risky, and the consequences are very serious if the Update goes wrong. He said that it could cause the computer to no longer function due to FKed BIOS.
    What is it that you would recommend now guys? Should I risk it and update it or is it not a problem? : (

    Links for drivers:

    AMD 7 series chipset.
    AMD HD Radeon 6000 series graphics (32-bit)
    AMD HD Radeon 6000 series graphics (64-bit)
    Realtek HD audio (not sure if you also need the ATI HDMI audio driver in same page)
    Realtek PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet (LAN)

    These should be enough. If you need more, go to Devices -> Windows devices and check any device that has not driver yet. At the bottom you will see the model.

    One more thing LukeJR I would NOT update your Bios, this would only be a last resort if you were having problems with your bios, which you are not!!! This could make your computer completely useless, and you could end up taking it to a computer tech to get it fixed. Stay away from updating your Bios!!!
