    you'll need to provide some information as to what the actual hardware is that you're seeking drivers for:)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    All of them, but mainly USB

    I don't see why you can't get all your drivers off driver guide?

    If not do a google search for the nam of hardware you want to drivers for

    Edit: Motherboards manufacturer site mate

    Indeed.

    Lately had to format a mates laptop and guess what, he had no cd with drivers. But I easily managed to download them from the manufacturers website.

    Erm....how did you manage to lose all your drivers?
    Windows XP normally installs them automaically anyway?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I simply go to download.com and get a program like "mydrivers" automatically backs up all drivers then when your all done just run it again and it puts them all back, perfect :).

    Just google the names of the stuff you want, motherboard manufacurers site too

    I've recently purchased an app called driver detective which whill scan your pc and download the drivers automatically - was $19 or somethign around that but it was worth it as I build / rebuild alot of PCs at work

    best bet is to use google (everyones best friend) or goto the vendor webpage and most have driver downloads in the support section - usually grouped for particular models!

    good luck
