If for any reason the above does not give you what you need, try this:

To identify the drivers required for your laptop (or any other pc) do the following:
Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the first oline of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First port of call is the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

http://www.driverguide.com/

Once downloaded, the driver will almost certainly be a zip file. Right-click it and click on "extract here". The extracted folder will normally contain a file named "setup" or somesuch.  If not, install the driver via Device Manager (Rt. click on My Computer, click "properties"-"hardware"-"device manager". Double click the device's entry, click the driver tab, and click on "update Driver". Specify the location of the downloaded and extracted file, and Windows will load it.

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
