You don't need to pay for drivers! Just goto the support page of the hardware manufacturer and download the newest drivers. They are all free or it is a rip-off.

If you have a dell computer dell.com will have all of your drivers.... Having older drivers is not such a big deal unless you are a gamer and need every FPS.

Jimmysgirl,

Just as everyone else in this thread has mentioned, you don’t need to pay for drivers. All you need to do is go to your computer manufacturer’s website and download and install the latest drivers for your application.

It is a good idea also to have Automatic Updates enabled so that you have the most current updates from Microsoft installed. More information on that can be found in this Microsoft support article.

Also, since you posted your question in the Windows XP forum, you should be aware of the upcoming End of Support date for Windows XP, which is April 8, 2014. After this date there will be no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates.

Making the move to a modern operating system such as Windows 7 or Windows 8 is strongly recommended and will ensure several more years of support.

A recent Springboard blog post written by Stephen Rose covers more about what end of support means and has many helpful links to the free tools you will need to migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

jimmysgirl - don't be fooled by dire warnings about the death of XP, or be bamboozled into buying an update you don't need. XP will go on with any support from Microsoft so long as they themselves don't send malicious code into it to upset it. Windows '95 has been "out of support" by MS for years but plenty of systems are still running well - many Hospitals in the UK are stil using it.

Also, the site that wanted to charge you for drivers is a scam and if your equipment is running smoothly, chances are you don't need any driver updates.
