I do not want to download driver downloader to this computer.

I wish to download internet,sound,and,graphics drivers to this computer,then,transfer them to a thumbdrive,then to a computer which cannot be hooked up to the net,because,it doesn't have internet drivers,the ones i want to download.(catch 22)!.i wish IT people would think about this problem when they set up a site.YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD A DRIVER IF YOU CAN'T HOOK UP TO THE NET !!!!!. same problem applies if you have embedded boards that need these drivers with these chips,and only USB access to the boards,because of space limitations on prototype usage.i hope this "nasty" reaches the IT people that set up these sites?!.

    Ranting here is pretty useless, since we're just a bunch of folks who like to help, but we aren't the manufacturers or sellers of the products.

    Drivers for hardware built into a system board are supplied on a CD with the board when it's purchased. On a preloaded system they are often to be found in a directory on the hard drive, usually with a name like "drivers" or the manufacturer's name. If you don't have the CD and there are no drivers on the disk then you have to go online to get them. No choice, not the fault of "IT people that set up these sites," just how it is.

    When you go to a site to download drivers, all you need to do is save the downloaded files, put them in your thumb drive and take them to the other computer. This should not be presenting any problem for you at all. What trouble are you having? Or do you you just like to vent?

The Internet drivers as you call them are called LAN drivers and may be part of the original chipset drivers. Use the "Download only" option for your thumb drive, run the SPxxxx file for the chipset drivers which will create an "hp" folder on your target computer, then in Device Manager look for the exclamation marks next to the devices that require drivers and point them to that "hp" folder if restarting does not automatically show "new hardware detected". Please repost if you have any further trouble and I will help. Steve Medley

Hi there!
If you don't have the disc for the driver and your only option is to download it from the internet then you'll need to use another computer to download the driver and transfer it to the computer that needs the LAN driver.
Hope this helps.

Hard drive went on my laptop. Put in new hard drive and downloading all the disc but can't get the internet to connect wireless or hookup.

Use a computer that is connected to the Internet, download the drivers and copy them to a USB memory stick and then copy them to your laptop and install them from your hard drive or just install them from the USB memory stick.
I suggest you burn these drivers onto a CD so you have these device drives when you need to re-build your hard disk again.

How to update my system drivers without an internet controller


You can download and save all the latest drivers for the machine using another computer that has an internet connection.
All you have to do is visit the computers support website, download the drivers to a file. Then transfer the files to a CD or a removeable device like a flash/pen drive.
Plug the device with the drivers on it to the computer that has not got an internet connection and update the drivers for it.

How to install the video drive

I'm sure you mean how to install a video driver. If you want to do this manually, you need to know what kind of graphics card, the computer has. Then, search and download the specific graphics card driver from the Internet. Or if you have the graphics driver disc, you can install the driver from there.

Another easier method is to download and install this free driver scanning tool from here: or directly from this link:

After you install it, answer yes when it asks to run. It would scan your drivers and tell you which drivers need to be updated, and will let you update them from the Internet. You need not even know what graphics or video driver you have. It's simple. Try it out.

Hope that helps,

I have Dell e521. I can't find disks. It came with Vista. (license tag is attached to top of computer) But I loaded XP Pro on it. Now I can't get on Internet, no sound and lousy graphics. Help. My kids are...

There must be some disks with the PC. Your internet provider should have supplied you with drivers when you bought your modem, else you wouldn't have got it to work with Vista either. If you install these drivers you should be able to get on the internet, and download the rest. If you can't find the disk, please post what provider and modem you have, so I can find the drivers for you.

I unistalled the ethernet driver from my sons computer

If the ethernet port is on the motherboard (if it is near the keyboard and mouse plugin) you should find the make and model of the motherboard, go to the manufacturer's website on another computer and look for "Driver Downloads".

If the ethernet port is on a card that plugs into your motherboard (if it is down towards the bottom of the computer in a slot area) you should find out the manufacturer and model number of the card and proceed to their website from another computer.

Once you've downloaded the appropriate driver, you can use your flash drive to transfer it over to the computer in need.
