Windows 7: want to send drivers to a friend in Oz

want to send drivers to a friend in Oz

hello. I have a chum in Australia who reformats his computer every time he gets a problem. Trouble is, he doesn't install any drivers and so the system isn't working as it should. The computer is a Dell 5150. He hasn't given me the service tag as yet. I have been up to the Dell site (UK) and just downloaded the chipset driver package for that board for a start, but I want to send all the drivers to him if I can. What would be the best way to do that please?

it isn't an issue for me, but I have tried, and failed, to get him to download the driver-detect tool from nVidia, and he just bottles out and says something isn't working and gives up - simpler if I get the drivers and send them to him

Next time he does a Clean Install, have him make a image of it using Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download This way he can restore the image in 15 minutes instead of having to reinstall everything. He should them have Macrium make an automatic image weekly.

I would put them into a zip folder and upload to OneDrive or any other good upload site.

Hi I don't see how :/
Even a cd or flash drive would need some installing
You might find it better to look into team viewer ?

Team Viewer, now there's a thought... OneDrive - yes I will look into that as well, thank you.

Well, if he formats it every time he has a problem, he should already have all the drivers he needs from Dell by now.

All he needs is the network driver to get started.

And there must be a reason he keeps having problems. ( downloading garbage comes to mind )

AddRAM, did you not read my first post? He DOESN'T download the drivers from Dell, that is the problem. His solution to everything is to reformat - that is all he knows to do. He didn't know about Dell, or that drivers were needed - nothing. Anyway, thank you all for trying to help, and your suggestions. I will give him the link to the Aussie Dell Support and hope to guide him to the correct drivers and download them one-by-one. If he can give me the service tag that wil help, but we will see. If that doesn't work I will try Teamviewer to put the correct files on his desktop. I assume I can do that. I have used other remote viewers to help folk in the past and suppose TV is much the same.
