The drivers need to be installed on each computer because, the installation process copies certain DLL files onto your computer and may add some entries into the registry.
There are no programs that install drivers from one computer to another, there are just too many variables and the various devices that are installed in the computers vary between models and even in the same model computers.

Once you have setup and installed the drivers and the programs on your computer you can make a image of your hard disk and restore that image onto an existing or a new hard disk without having to re-installing Windows, the drivers and your programs again.
Symantec Ghost is one such program for this job.

How do you wipe the compaq presario m2000


I'm not sure if you are wiping it to start over or to sell/give away.

Many newer machines have a Recovery Partition, usually your "D:" drive.

Access the System Recovery partition from the Start-All Programs-System Recovery-System Recovery Menu. Following the prompts will allow you to reformat the computer and reinstall the operating system and all software as it came from the factory. From that point, if you don't want any of the factory junk, you'll need to uninstall it yourself.

If the Recovery partition is missing, (usually a D: drive) , then you'll need to have the original Recovery discs which were created when the computer was new.

If you simply want to wipe it, use a disk wiping tool. Many hard drive wipers, cleaners or shredders can be downloaded at no cost. Visit Downloads.com to search for these programs that are designed to wipe your hard drive. Once you have downloaded a disk wiping program, install it on your computer. Each program will have a unique graphical user interface (GUI) and directions for use. Follow the directions for your selected disk wiping tool and run the program to wipe your hard drive. The program will make sure that all files and data have been completely erased by overwriting the entries multiple times.

USB DRIVE NOT SEEN


If your usb drive is not seen, then its one of two problems, you have a network drive interfering or you have a device taking over the drive letter like a cd or hard drive.

To manually set it, start control panel. click on administrative tools. Then computer management. Finally, click on disk management. It will show all your attached drives. Right click on the drive and click Change drive letter and path. Remove the existing letter and add a new one. It should show up.

If that doesn't work, your usb drive is damaged or possibly the usb system.

Toshiba qosmio g15 hard drive #2 not showing up on explore


First ensure the drive is seen in the BIOS, if not seen there, it will not be seen in Windows.
If detected and Identified in BIOS, then see if the drive is seen as Drive 1 in Disk Management. CONTROL PANEL, ADMIN TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, DISK MANAGEMENT. If it is listed in Disk Management but not assigned a drive letter, then right click the Disk 1 and INITIALIZE the Drive, then format it (Note: any data on the drive will be lost when initializing a drive)

Greetings my friend, regarding on your problem try to see if you have installed and update an anti virus software in your computer/Laptop then if is it installed then run the anti virus and scan and clean all your drives in your computer otherwise install and update your anti virus software. Also try to check also the files that you have stored in your drives. Delete those files in the recycle bin. Also defrage your drives.

Windows program shut down Laptop problem model-no-XPS M1530


it sounds like the hard drive might be failing or it might be a software problem. Try starting in safe mode and running a full system scan to see if it's sometihngi n the software. If not go to the Bio's screen and run drive self test. you do this in bio's by scrolling with your arrow till you get to a tools menu and then it will say hard drive self test. Your computer then will do 3 tests to determine if you have a harddrive problem. If you do then you will have to have the hard drive replaced. If you have a warranty on the computer call them as they will cover this issue.
