How do you back up drivers in vista?

by zero3son / August 30, 2007 10:05 AM PDT

Any ideas on how to do it?. You see my dad bought me a pc from Japan the problem is the OS is in Japanese ( Vista). I will buy a English version of Vista and attempt to reformat it to English. Now my problem is the drivers. The DVD that came with it is only a recovery DVD. Any suggestions on this one? Thanks!

English and it will be in English. All Microsoft OEM DVD's and CD's come in the different languages.

Download them and save them in a folder labeled "back up drivers". Make sure you know where they are in case you ever need them.

They're pre-installed in the PC so I can't download them.

Find out the make, model and serial number of you PC and go to the manufacturer's support web site and download ALL the drivers from the same page.
