You can install driver detective whether you are on the internet or not, by downloading it with an internet accessed computer saving it then copying it onto a disk or usb stick. Put it on your computer and install it, it will still check your computer for outdated drivers and drivers that need updating.. Make a note of the drivers that are needed, and use an internet based computer to download the drivers that you need and then copy them to a disk and install them on your computer

I hope this helps

    my apologies, I ran this program on my sons computer completely forgetting that i had already set up his wireless internet connection. It was because I manually downloaded individual drivers that he needed that confused me. I have however downloaded driver genious from here http://www.driver-soft.com/download.html it loaded and ran and just showed me the hardware that had drivers out of date. If you run this program then make a note of the hardware that has out of date drivers and then close the program. Because it will then rely on the internet to find and update the drivers for you. Instead of this you can make a note of the hardware that has out of date drivers, using your model and make of computer, graphics card, sound card etc.... you can then search for the drivers. If you have problems locating the drivers that you need let me know the make and model of your pc and any other hardware you may have and I will try to locate the correct drivers for you (please include your version of windows)

    I hope this helps

    when the program first opens it will say the drivers database has not been updated for 30 days. Would you like to update it now, click on no. This will then open the program. Click on start scan. This picked up 8 out of date drivers on my other machine that does not have the internet. But I will add though that my other machine works fine and i will not be updating the drivers on it. If you are having problems with your machine and need a particular driver please let me know

I dont have the disc how do i download brother lc61


I lost my cd for my Brother LC61 printer. I recently had Ubuntu put on my laptop by a co-worker because I having slow processing issues. I have clicked on download from the Brother site, but keep getting the following message:
Archive: /tmp/DriverDetective-3.exe
[/tmp/DriverDetective-3.exe]
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /tmp/DriverDetective-3.exe or
/tmp/DriverDetective-3.exe.zip, and cannot find /tmp/DriverDetective-3.exe.ZIP, period.

Can this software be downloaded to my laptop?

Where can i get my driver for my multimedia audio controller p4m266-8235


If you have a connection to the internet from the computer in which you need the driver the best method is to go to driver detective.

$29.95 for 1 year registration Driver Detective provides access to 27,000,000 device associated drivers including over 2,500,000 that are specific to computer manufacturers such as Dell, Toshiba, Gateway and Compaq.

$29.95 is well worth it. For a 1 year subscription not only can you use it on your current pc, but any pc that you may be work on over the period of your 1 year subscription. The site will save your registration key for you and a history with driver files for all downloads you use.
http://www.driverdetective.org/tag/driver-detective/

I have used driver detective on a approximately 30 computers of the past 12 months and I will never search or trust any other site again.

Final note; driver detective is not shareware, freeware, fakeware, or stupidware. Check out the site before anyone else sends you to a file that makes your problem worse.

Respectfully,

David

No internet on old computer lost disc to Soundblaster Model S80220


I'M NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND HOW YOU WERE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THE DRIVER IF YOU WEREN'T CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET? EVEN IF THE GAMING COMPUTER ISN'T HOOKED UP TO THE INTERNET, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO IMPUT ANY DATA FROM A JUMP DRIVE, IF YOU DOWNLOADED IT FROM THE INTERNET. WITHOUT AN INTERNET CONNECTION YOU NEED TO USE ANOTHER COMPUTER TO DOWNLOAD THIS DRIVER, THEN INSTALL IT ON YOUR GAMING MACHINE. OK? DOES THIS HELP?
