"there is always the odd driver that has a problem being detected"

That's normally because Windows does not necessarily contain drivers (software) for all the devices (hardware) in your system.

You will have to find and save drivers (on a CD is best) for such devices, then have them ready when asked for when you reformat.

There's no way around that.

PS - the place to find such drivers is normally on the web-site of the device manufacturer.

If you are more specific, maybe we can give you some more specific help.

These sites are free, and will help if it is Dll files that are required.

click here there is a trial period where you can copy all your drivers to disc before you reformat etc. It will also find drivers you haven't got.

Sounds like you do it a lot, but why ?

It is usually not necessary.
