searching for drivers

  hgrock 16:46 12 Nov 2006

I have 2 computers, on one if I add a new hardware and it cannot find the driver, I get the option to search the web, but on the other I don't does anyone know why?
I have a little skype phone which installs on the desktop xp pro, but for some reason it refuses to install on the laptop xp home, and I do not get the search for a driver on the web option, but I do get that on the desktop, any comments would be helpful

No idea why this happens hgrock so I can't help with that but I personally haven't found windows update drivers that useful anyway. I've found it better to go to the hardware manufacturers website to get the drivers.
