Stupid drivers!!!

#1 Post by CastorTroy81 » Mon May 18, 2009 10:42 am

Reformatted my laptop last night and used the system restore disk but turns out instead of restoring it to how it was when I bought it, it just reinstalls XP. So no sound drivers. No broadband connection. Windows help telling me to click icons that aren't there and to check online for more help. :el:

So this morning downloaded Driver Detective and Aida. 1 of those should let me know what I need drivers for.

If it's a Dell or HP just go on their support sites and there will be a list of drivers specific to your model.

Had them back up and running on tuesday evening but just got sidetracked from really using it.

Just wanted to clear all the crap that had built up over the years. Even went and installed windows 7 as well last night, so may get to play with that a bit this weekend
