I have an XP computer that I have just reformatted, it's relatively new (6 months) and yet I can't find the drivers (cds) for it anywhere.  I have another computer which has access to the internet.

It seems you need an internet connection to update drivers using any of the available software solutions.  Obviously, without the ethernet drivers, I dont have an inet connection?

With the combination I have, how I can I update the drivers for my XP machine?  I'm not looking to pay anything if possible.

Can you recommend any software/solution that can scan for drivers offline (even just the names so I can dl them) and then plug into another computer to get the actual drivers?  I have tried Driver Robot and it didn't work.

Thanks in advance!
