If you don't have the CD, you can usually download it from the model and the type of computer you have.
My laptop is Toshiba
. At the bottom of my laptop there is a model name. If your using a desktop, it may be at the side of the computer. Not exactly sure, however.
You then need to go to your computer's website. Mine is toshiba so I will need to go to the "toshiba website". You can usually find that with a quick google. Then at that website you need to find the download location. Click on it and you will need to fill out a short "form" asking the type of computer you have and the model name etc... Then select Go and you will be brought to a page with all of the different drivers you can
Make sure you download the appropriate one because there are drivers for XP and Vista. If I remember correctly you were using an XP. Also you may not need to download all
of them, as some are not necessary. Some of the important
drivers you need to download are: Chipset
Graphics Adapter (This may be part of the chipset)
Ethernet / LAN card
Sound Card / Sound Adapter
For my computer I went to this website: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp
On that page near the top you can see downloads
. Click it and you will be presented with the "form" I was talking about that you need to fill out, but you would need to go to your own website for the type of computer you have.
Hope that helps. I need to go, so sorry for my bad computer terminology and grammatic errors. When I come back, I can explain in more details and explain it better if you have any questions. Others here can also help you as most of them know more about this stuff then I do.
