    The site is a good idea in theory but I would not recommend anyone to a site like this one for fear that they could be downloading outdated drivers since the manufactures site lists the current ones anyway. Its really not that hard to find drivers for your hardware from the manufactures site anyway and its not like this site lists anything out of the ordinary or hard to find.

      the problem is right now that these can't be found. And, they may be linking to pages that are updated themselves.

      so, whent he problem that they cant be found is outdated, you wont have to go to this site anyways. i dont think this is intended to do anything but address the current problem.

        While I hate Windows, I actually wish this problem was not so easy for Microsoft to solve. Since they are signing all drivers, they could just determine device's PCI/USB/etc signature and fetch the driver from their website. The problem is that now all the hardware in the world can only be created with Microsoft's approval, which is way too much control for a single company.

            With all major OSes - Windows, MacOSX and Linux - you are mostly using drivers that come from the vendor. Only MacOSX lets you download and install a binary driver from an unrelated 3rd party and not worry about updating it after every kernel security patch.

          That's the same stupid nonsense people were saying when Microsoft introduced driver signing. It is only DRM-related drivers that absolutely require a free Microsoft-issued PIC (Publishers Identification Certificate), which in turn requires a class 3 Verisign certificate ($500/yr).

                In the unlikely case that I produced some custom hardware, and its drivers, I might be able to afford, but not willing to agree with MS certification. That doesn't say anything about the quality of my eventual hardware, I think.

      I would see that to be the case when buying whole systems from HP, Dell, Etc. Just as much the same if you buy Brand name parts all the time. But when you work on machines for people who go cheaper and buy off-brand name equipment, then you start spending Hours looking for a driver for their sound card. Also, as another Comment said here, This list appears to serve to point out a problem with the OS than a way for Consumers to easily find Drivers.

        Are people who buy cheap, off-brand equipment really investing the $100-$300 to upgrade their current computer to Windows Vista? It seems more likely that they'd upgrade in a couple of years, when the cheap, off-brand equipment is all running Vista. In that case, the appropriate drivers will be shipped with the machine.

        I updated my friends desktop (HP Pavillion) with Vista. There were no drivers for AC'97! They got to be joking!
        At least HP has shown they care and I was able to download them from their site. Plus ATI drivers that hardly worked, and some minor problems with WIFI (detected as something totally different, but worked!).
        I had less problems with Mandriva on my new laptop. Everything worked out of the box. Including Compiz and Xgl.

        • That's not true. Not only are drivers built into Vista for Intel audio (AC97 and HD), but most third party codecs are supported too (Realtek, NVIDIA, VIA, etc.)

          Certain AC97 codecs may not be supported, but it's misleading to say that Vista doesn't come with AC97 drivers - for the vast majority of users, it does.

      Yes, because no one ever has trouble getting a wifi card to work under Linux. Or printer drivers working under OSX. In fact, surprising though it may be to you, getting drivers to work is often one of the biggest difficulties of installing Linux. And sure, OSX comes with drivers for all the Apple hardware, but if you have some weird piece of proprietary hardware, there is a good possibility you won't ever find a driver for it.

      As for Windows Vista, I hope it falls on it's face or at least loses 30% market share, leaving the rest for OSX, linux, openbsd, solaris, and a beautiful world of open standards and interoperability. Or at least giving people more freedom to leave windows if they need to.

      Don't blame HP for that one. Blame nVidia's insistence that OEMs support mobile chipsets with their own "official" drivers (which the likes of HP/Compaq and Dell never keep up to date, of course). The thing is, mobile chipsets are generally no different from their desktop counterparts when it comes to drivers. For nVidia drivers, check out LaptopVideo2Go.com [laptopvideo2go.com]. For ATi, try DH Mod tool [driverheaven.net]. In either case, the "problem" is that the inf for the drivers don't contain the right information to detect mobile chipsets, even though the drivers will work just fine on them. The "fix" is to hack the inf so that the installers will allow you to apply the drivers to your mobile card.

    • I don't see why everyone bashes this so much. My Ubuntu install works in a very similar manner. Whenever anything needs root privileges it pops up a password dialog (unless, of course, I'm in a shell and have to sudo instead), but you don't hear everyone yapping all day about "Synaptix needs root privileges, please enter your password".

      Everyone's been barking about Windows running as root constantly, and now that they've changed that model everyone barks because Windows prompts you before it runs something

        Have you actually used Vista?

        I know they have dialed it down some since I last used it (I used some of the first public betas as my main Windows OS for a couple of months last year) but when I was using it, it would ask about _EVERYTHING_.... and I really mean everything. It was unbelievable how often it would ask... and was definitely really annoying.

        I know that windows needs to get more secure, and one way of moving towards that goal is to have these nag screens.... but after using it for a while I reall

          Quite honestly, it has changed a lot. I'm running RC1 right now, and (like I stated before) the prompting really isn't any more intrusive than on Edgy. To tell the truth, I was rather surprised.

          It's also a lot faster than it used to be. Beta 2 was pretty much unusable to me on my old machine (a 2.4 GHz with 1.2GB of RAM). That was almost enough for me to write it off for good. But a friend of mine just bought a Vista laptop with 1 GB of RAM, and it was surprisingly responsive (especially after the fiasco I

    Whoever is crazy enough to download drivers from places linked to by this site?

    I mean, all good intentions aside, but drivers are binary files, it's rediculous enough that most of them aren't digitally signed even when downloaded from the original manufacturer. But explain why exactly this site is sending us to "files.3dnews.ru" to download ATI drivers???

    Shit, I can't even come up with a hooker/unprotected sex analogy that's silly enough to describe this.

    In any case, if this is the way for Vista customers to get their new purchase to work, then yeah, glory days for Linux ahead...

      Well, 3Dnews.ru is a serious russian tech news, review, and analysis site which keeps a nice archive of ATI/NVIDIA (and other) drivers dating back to the Detonator age so there shouldn't be any problems downloading there. But I agree with you on the general principle (not the day of Linux on desktop part) that the things you're expected to install as admin should be digitally signed, and preferably come from the manufacturer's site.

      Oh, damn now that made me actually think of one. All OS driver sex is bad because you just can't find "clean" virgins out there. Ope
  • Apparently, listing the drivers in alphabetical order is beyond the limited mental capacity of the idiot running that site. So I had to scroll through 6 pages of randomly listed drivers just so I could find out that the one I was looking for isn't there.

    Thanks for nothing.

      If you're looking for a specific one, why didn't you hit ctrl+f and search for it?
  • At last we have a list of these vista drivers! There is nothing more dangerous than people driving around, not paying attention and looking off in to the distance! Now you can tell if your neighbor or one of your family members is a vista driver. People that drive like this are a traffic hazard and a menace to society! Why, just the other day, I was driving to work and beside me was someone - not paying attention - looking off into the dist...
