right click my computer,properties,device manager, and click the drivers of the devices you want from there location. its much easier if you download them from the site if its a manufactured pc you can get them all from there websie.

Default Re: How do you back up drivers to removable storage device?

I thought you said (ace 777) to back them up through device manager?

Yes, is manufactured (Dell PC).

Although aas you said will probablt be easier to do through website (manufactueres). I have gone too there site and specified my make and model but it is now giving me a huge list of drivers to download. See below:

applications = 4
audio = 3
bios = 1
cd/dvd = 39
chipset = 1
communication = 5
diagnostics = 3
ide and eide controllers = 1
input device drivers = 2
network = 7
system utilites = 2
system manangement = 9
video = 5

The numbers after the title
e.g cd/dvd = 9
means there is 9 drivers to download. I have only one cd drive so which one do I choose from list? I thought that if Ityped in the model number then the website should know what cd drive it has and then supplies the one relevant driver to download. Or is it the case that there are several different cd/dvd drives availbale for that m,odel number?
