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

Is there a transferable drivers download for a machine not online ?

Use another computer that has Internet access to download the drivers, then copy the drivers onto an USB memory stick. Use this memory stick to install the video driver onto your computer.

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,

We need to download drivers for our emachine, but we cannot connect to the internet with that computer. Is there anyway we can download drivers to a disk from another computer and install them that way?

Many drivers can be downloaded and burned to a CD or transferred to a external memory source. They are usually compacted files that need to be extracted which can be done on your PC that doesn't have internet after downloading them on a different computer and transferring them to an alternate memory source. Simply download the drivers and transfer them to a jump drive or burn them to a CD and then run them from the other PC.

Installed but no sound at all. Sound card disapeared.

You must install the sound card software driver. If you have the CD installer, put the disc in, click open, and
get it installed. However, if you don't have it, you can either buy it or get a download for sound driver software from the internet. Get connected to the internet and type at the search engine blank (Free download for sound driver software). And left click on
it, to begin the search. Once it is done, you can have
the choice for the right download. Just follow the ins-
truction for you to get the download. Once you have
the download at your computer, left click to open
and install it.

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.
