Driver Detective has proved to be a very useful tool for me. I have a Dell Inspiron laptop which I formatted and re-installed Windows 7 operating system. After re-installation, I was unable to find the sound driver for my laptop. Then after a long search, Driver Detective ended my search by providing the sound driver series for my laptop. Today my laptop sings by sounding aloud with the help of sound driver installed.
