You'll have to find out what the brand / model of your motherboard / system is. Then go to the site then download the drivers

Is it a brand name PC, if so have a look at the manufactures website.

If its a custom build you need to find out what the motherboard is and download the drivers from the makes website and if you have a separate video card from Nvidia or ATI.

All your drivers should be on the mother board disk, if you have one.

Only if you are using integrated graphics, if you have a graphics card them you will need to obtain specific drivers for it elsewhere.

Concentrate on getting the network driver. Once that's working Windows Update will take care of the rest for you.

Or if you have a USB modem, use that to get online to Windows Update.

May not.

Best bet would be, find out the Brand PC's model no. or service tag # (look for the sticker on the box) then, go to their website and download the appropriate drivers.

Thats what I did, with my sisters PC, when I formatted her laptop. I installed the drivers for this mobile, connected it. Then installed the LAN drivers thru device manager / windowsupdate. Once, these had been installed, I connected it to the nieces modem/router.

And installed the rest of the updates
