Format Drive with no drivers disc

  Johny C 18:27 11 Jul 2004

Hi Everyone

right i have just been given a PC, but they didnt have the drivers for the graphics card or motherboard. I want to format the system but i dont know which drivers to download without actually going inside the system to have a look, (Dont fancy this option to be honest)...

is there a way i can reload the drivers after i have formatted? or can i back them up before i format the PC.

which sites are best for drivers?

Cheers Guys.............. John

If you run Belarc Advisor click here it will identify the mobo and graphics card.

A good place to start is click here

If you are going to format and install, windows should install a driver(at least compatable)for graphics and sound. When Windows is installed you can go to device manager to find out what makes your hardware is....TT

Try (don't know how to do the 'click here' bit) and click on Service (left side of page) and then driver updates. I don't see your particular one there but a 1300 might do - you could try it anyway and if it's not right delete it.

Sorry that did not copy very well! Look on Jessops site for card reader.
