Downloading Drivers

I have a disabled computer with Xp on it just recently installed. How can I burn a CD to download drivers from my working computer to the disabled one?  Thanks

You need drivers specific to the disabled computer unless it is exactly like the other computer.  Generally, drivers are available for download from websites and most OS installations do a good job at providing the basics.  Please define "disabled".

Not sure what you are asking here.  Am I right in thinking:

You have just installed Windows XP on a computer and now need to install the drivers but cannot connect it to the Internet.

You indend to download the drivers from the Internet using a second PC that can connect to the Internet and burn them to a CD.

You then plan to put the CD in the newly installed computer and run the driver installations from the CD.


If so can you provide the make and model of the newly installed PC?

Yes, exactly. I want to just download drivers for my Dell Inspiron 530 because I just installed XP over Windows Vista and cannot get an internet connection. So, I want to know how I can burn a CD from Dell's support site, or wherever, from my good working computer to upload to my down Dell computer. Thanks.

Just download the drivers from the Dell wub site and copy them to a folder on your working machine. Once you have got them all select the drivers, right click and  choose copy to CD. (or copy them to a USB flash disk instead).

Go to the Dell site
Move your cursor over the Support and Help icon and click the Drivers and Downloads link
Click Choose by Service Tag
Enter your service tag and click Go

A list of drivers should now be shown.

Or try the following link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_D530&os=WW1&osl=EN
