    I got my machine second hand ages ago and it didn't come with any driver disks or anything. I checkd the motherboard and all that and installed what I thought was the right drivers (it wouldn't work at all otherwise would it?) but do any of these apps like Driver Magician and Driver Wizard work? It'd be nice if I could just run an app that scanned my setup and checked that all the drivers are correct and up to date. I'm a bit shady about actually running one just in case it fucks my system up but if others have run them and they worked I'll give it a shot.

    On another note I've been searching for a XP driver for a Belkin Wireless G PCI card (ver 7021uk) but not had any luck. The Belkin homepage doesn't have them. Is there a good site that anyone can recommend where I might be able to find them?

    They do work. I used one (Uniblue driver scanner) to update everything it could find and the computer works a bit better now. My internet connection is more stable at the very least.
