backup laptop drivers

  shauny36 22:16 27 Sep 2006

am wanting to back up the drivers on my advent 7016 laptop as i havent got any drivers for it if anything happens to hd.

do i just go into program files and copy the driver folder or are the main drivers somewhere else (eg: vga sound etc)

The best option is to get a program that will ID all the components and use it to find out what's in the machine; then go to the individual manufacturers' sites and get drivers from there.

You can back up the drivers folder but they are not necessarily all there.

is there no way of copying them directly from the laptop.
