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?!.

Re: i do not want to download driver downloader to this...
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

Within the drivers you transferred to the computer there maybe files with .exe extensions use those if available. If not you will need to go into device manager. (Right click "My Computer" > Manage > Click Device Manager on the left pane. Right click the device, Update Driver, Select No not at this time for using windows update, "Install from specific location", browse to the folder containing the driver files for said device and click OK it should install correctly. If it doesn't try each folder (folder should have either .inf or .sys files in it)
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: http://xpdrivers.com/index.cfm or directly from this link: http://xpdrivers.com/download/download.cfm
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.
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.
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.
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.
