Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hardware Drivers Backup

\015 I am about to either replace or reformat the HDD on my laptop.Anyway the HDD need a clean up.I purchased this laptop(secondhand) a few years back but did not get the drivers cd.I also know I can get them from the Dell website but which ones, there are 64 of them and I don't need them all.I know I need to backup the hardware drivers, but do not know:1.: How to find/locate all of them?2.: How then to proceed to back them up to an external HDD?I know I can buy recovery disks from various suppliers, but by backing up I will know I have the correct drivers for this machine.RegardsMike Vaughan\015

Answers :

You can find all the necessary drivers for your laptop here "http://supportapj.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=in&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3C_C600&os=WNT5&osl=en&catid=&impid=" select the Operating System you use, download the most common or important ones like "Audio,video,LAN" to some external drive like pen drives or so.
Then you can proceed with reformatting your HDD.
If the above link does no work , try this one "http://www.dell.com/"

click "Drivers & Downloads" located below, choose your appropriate product then the OS and proceed with the downloads..
I doubt there are 64 drivers, if you read the descriptions carefully there will be applications and services, ur right about there being more drivers than you need as dell usually have a few diffrnt versions of each model, it wont cause any problems to download the wrong ones and try it will simply tell you it cannot find the correct hardware, shouldnt take you too long to download all the drivers, if you do all your windows updates before you look for drivers windows will probably find and install most drivers for you! if its an oldish laptop i wouldnt be supprised if windows found and installed all of them.
