Help with re-installing Windows.

Hi,
I would like to re-install Windows and start over fresh. My manufacturer said that I have to back up all of my drivers onto a jump drive, and load them in whilst I'm re-installing. Can someone have a look at my specs and tell me what exactly I need to back up? Thanks so much.

We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD.

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?



You can order OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.
Most OEM's will ship Recovery DVD's for FREE, (may be a postage fee)

As it says in the tutorial above, drivers are automated in Win7 delivered via the installer and then quickly updated after install when you run all Important and Optional Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3).\

Only import drivers still missing in Device Manager after all rounds of Updates are finished. Do not change out any drivers Win7 prefers unless performance problems point to them - we can help you determine this.

The Manufacturer hasn`t got a clue, but this member was banned so maybe we should close this thread ?
