I was told that you can download replacement drivers, in case you have a problem sometimes, and store them in a separate directory. How do you do this. I haven't any idea as to where to start. Hope somebody can help me. Thanks. Ann

Depends what drivers you want. Go to the manufacturers web-site and download but save rather than run. Save to wherever you want.

Use this click here to find out what hardware you have in your machine, it provides links to the manufacturers websites in many cases - find the Support,Downloads or Drivers page on the relevant site and download the driver, then copy the downloaded file into a specific drivers folder or burn to CD.

Create a suitably named downloads folder in Program Files specifically for the purpose and use sub-folders to identify which drivers are for what purpose.

You will need to configure your download manager to Save to this Folder and/or one of its sub-folders.

Create a Folder on your C: Drive with an appropriate name. click here and register and, you can search for mostly any driver you may require.

To create a New Folder, Open My Computer, Double click the C: drive and then select File/New/Folder. Give the File a Name and press Enter on the keyboard. The file/s will now be in the C: in alphaetical order.
