Dubious about needing new drivers

Go to your laptop manufacturer's website. Somewhere on it you will find a download drivers section. Put in your model number & that's it.

Incidently, I hope that you're not relying on some 3rd party software to have done your driver scan. These pieces of software are usually trash! Stay away from them. They are designed to make you paranoid and shell out on new drivers (which as I have said, are free anyway).
Is your laptop working OK? If so, why update anyway? Remember, if it ain't broke, why fix it?

I agree with Mikeanders, sounds like a scam. First rule of thumb, stay away from ANYTHING that alludes to fix your registry and/or update/upgrade drivers...
