    Windows Update is a common way. It will give Microsoft the task of telling you if new drivers are available for the stuff that's on your computer. Otherwise, look at whatever hardware and software you have (brand names, model numbers, etc.) and go to each manufacturer's website for driver updates that you can download.

    How do you know this ?
    What makes you think you need to update the drivers ?
    Which drivers do you need to update ?

    There is a simple rule that holds true most of the time - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. if you have a compelling reason then be more specific in your post about what and why. if you are just updating because you think you should, perhaps you shouldn't.

    BTW, when I mentioned Windows Update, I was not suggesting its Automatic Updates feature. I do it manually and rarely. But like Guns1inger says, you may not need any driver updates. Driver Doctor is a ripoff, money-making scheme. Every hardware and software manufacturer offers free driver updates on their websites. Don't get swindled.
