Good Evening deneka
OK let us look at the last few points you raised
I re-read the tutorial and the part about not having the driver cd, it gives options for various Dell, HP etc but mine isn't on the list.
Don't worry I have found another way that you can obtain the correct drivers, see below.
Also with regards to your mentioning of the "hidden recovery partition" I don't get that.
If it does not say Hidden Recovery Partition
then that is what we want so do not worry.
Right then, we now need to backup all the drivers on your system and place them into a Folder.
When we have done that we can transfer the folder onto a CD or flashdrive/USB Pen Drive.
The folder is then placed onto the desktop of the newly formatted system and Windows will then find all the drivers from that folder.
To do all that please follow this instruction:-
Save Driver List and Backup Drivers
- Click this link to download Double Driver - Double Driver Download Link
- Click the Save button, in the Save in: box select Desktop, click the Save button bottom right
- Find a clear area of your Desktop right click and highlight New then click Folder
- Name the Folder DRIVERS
- Double click the dd100 icon on your Desktop
- Click Run, click Next
- Check or tick I accept the agreement radio button
- Click Next, click Next, click Next again
- Check or tick Create a desktop icon, click Next
- Click Install button and click the Finish button.
The program will now open, proceed as follows:-
- Click the Scan button and wait for the scan to finish
- Next click the Backup icon/button
- Click the Browse button
- In the window click the folder you created called DRIVERS, click OK
- Click the radio button All drivers click OK
You have now backed up all your drivers to a folder.
I now need you to either transfer the DRIVERS
Folder onto a CD, USB Pen Drive or Flash Drive.
For the following example we will assume that you are going to transfer the DRIVERS
Folder onto a CD
When the format/reinstall is complete place the CD into the drive of the newly formatted PC and then transfer the DRIVERS
Folder from the CD onto your Desktop
Windows will start looking for the drivers to run it so a message will ask for the location of the correct driver
Simply direct Windows to the Folder called DRIVERS
and Windows will find the relevant driver and install it.
This message will appear several times until Windows has found all the drivers it requires.
I advise you to print a copy of this massge so you can reference it after the format/reinstall if necessary.
Do you have any more questions deneka ?
