Default Driver Backup and Restore software

Hi guys,

As I've previously posted in the past, I'm getting problems locating drivers for laptops and desktops online when i do a clean install. Is either the driver does not install correctly or some signature issue. Most clients don't have the original installation disk

I've been looking into software that can save the drivers before I do a clean install. I've been looking at this link : Device driver backup, restoration, update and removal tool for Windows, drivers backup, backup drivers Probably you guys can give me some advise also in what u recommend.

It's better to identify the model of the desktop/laptop that you're reinstalling and find the manufacturers website. For example, if I reinstalled a HP G60 laptop, I'd go to HP's website to get the drivers for that laptop. For graphics drivers I tend to get the latest from Intel, Nvidia or ATI.

If the PC is a custom build, then just open up the PC and check the model of the motherboard (plus other devices in it such as GPU, Audio Card etc)
