Can I download my dell drivers to my laptop,

Dell / Demension 4550
March 4, 2011 at 08:51:33
Specs: Windows XP, 512
My dell crashed and I got a new hard-drive, but I have no reinstalling disc. I found all the drivers on Dells website. Can they be down loaded to a jump drive from my laptop. I wasn't sure if it would just load them onto the laptop.

Yes, you can copy them back to the crashed machine once you've reinstalled windows (you do have an xp install disc?) - then install them. I'm not sure from your post your level of expertise - do you need more help?

I have the operating system disc for xp, but it has no drivers for Ethernet. I found driver on the dell site, and thought I would download them to a jump from my laptop and them port them into the desktop. I just wasn't sure if when I would do that if it would just install them on my laptop. Kinda gun-shy to press the button! It's not my laptop, and I didn't want to override something. Will it give you an option list of how you want it stored?
