Finding Required Drivers Before Fresh Install?

hello guys

is there any way to download and store (on a usb stick) all the drivers I need for my laptop to do a clean install?

I have installed windows 7 a few times and I am happy with the process of doing so but just want to know if i can detect the drivers that will be needed as it has been a hassle in the past.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi ... Windows Update should supply you with most of the Drivers ...


Any that are missing can be got from the Acer Website ...


They are Dated 2012 ..

Run DoubleDriver to save a backup of all your current drivers on a USB stick before the reinstall.

Is good to have all your current drivers comfortably backed up and just a USB away if Windows Update doesn't behave as expected to get you all the drivers (i've seen that happen from time-to-time)
