Driver check utility from Lenovo-For missing drivers

 

Is there any utility available from Lenovo which will scan and alert me with name of devices whose drivers are not being installed? Or list of hardware available on current laptop ?

 

eg. DVD-R

      Intel Mother

     Bluetooth

     Fingerprint reader

 

This will helpful to confirm that all the device drivers are installed properly against the hardware, also system update can't show reports like this.

Go into Control Panel, then click on SYSTEM, then click on Device Manager, this will give you the full list of the hardware that is installed on the system. If there is any drivers that are not installed, it will have a yellow exclamation mark.

The crazy thing is didn’t notice any Yellow marks in device manager, however after several reboot seen popups saying" Installing drivers" but later it says fail to install device driver.

Expand the system tray at boot; it should have a Device Installing icon, which you can click to open the driver install box. It should say which device Windows is trying to driver.

This is not a solution, is there any tool available which will provide me list of available hardware- Say 10 items on this laptpo. Next step is to look for the drivers on the lenovo site for the corrpsponding hardware.

There is something like HWinfo32, which would list the detected hardware info.
