It depends on the computer. Exactly what brand/model do you have?

This is something that you do NOT want to do unless you have a lot of experience with doing it. It is very rare that you would need to even consider it, so I would advise against it, in the strongest terms.

If you are looking to update the on-board components, like the video or sound, drivers are available for those for all different motherboards.

Why are you looking to do this?

Oh right, I'm with ya, not too sure, but you you can try for nothing, as it seems you need to burn the downloaded files to the disk before hand, so do that, and if the program runs from DVD, great, if not, you know you'll need a CD.
