First off, apologies if this is already posted someplace.
I'm relatively Windows-literate, but admit to being confused on how to deal with drivers
. I will be doing a clean install of Windows 7 on my laptop (Dell D631, 4Gb RAM, 500Gb HDD, currently Win XP Pro) and want to be in good shape re drivers required. I'm confused as to where to go to have the right drivers available before I start the install... what comes with Windows 7, what do I need to go to manuf websites for, what do I go to microsoft.com for, what about the Catch-22 of... "don't have the right (eg) network driver
, and can't get onto the web due to this, to GET the right network driver..." etc etc.
Apology #2 - this might be a real basic question. Thanks in advance for help. Nice forum!
