I have a laptop but have lost the mobo disc. It has been formatted but I am missing the following drivers - Network controller, SM Bus Controller, Video Controller (VGA Compatible)and Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus which all have yellow ! . I dont know where to look for the drivers. Thanks.

Make, model and operating system of the laptop would be helpful, [email protected]©.

On the laptop manufacturer's website; a more up to date version of them may be found on the motherboard manufacturer's website and the same for the HD audio drivers (is it a Realtek chipset?)
