I should get my new hard drive today. I have the XP disc but i cant find the Dell drivers disc. Will it load the drivers i need automatically ?
I cant see it will but i am hoping it will.
Thanks guys

You may well need drivers for motherboard, graphics card(s) and similar items all of which should have been on the drivers CD. If you identify tour PC you could search online for a download of the CD required, e-mail Dell or ask here for further advice.

Last time I used an XP disc to format and reinstall it found drivers for everything without having to resort to the specifics.
The only one I changed was the graphics to get the versatility, but all others were fine.

For non-Dell machines I've used Drivermax click here. The free download includes a tool whereby existing drivers can be saved to a flash drove or CD.

Sometimes SP3 has problems (hanging on install or others)

If that happens, don't panic. Google or re-post.

I had to use network version (one solution).
