The usb ports are most likely onboard so as long as you have all of the drivers for the motherboard then that should be all you need.

If it's a usb add-on card I can't say if it will work or not, it may need it's own drivers it may work without......

Flip a coin to decide:

As far a I see it you doing exactly the right thing, take stock of what hardware you have and get all the drivers(preferably burnt to a cd), before you reformat.

By far the most important driver to get would be for whatever kind of network device you have, that way if you miss anything at least you could download afterwards.

You need to make certain of exactly what hardware you have to get the drivers for.

If you have pre-built(that hasen't been changed) pc from a major company(dell, hp, ect.) then you can normally get all of the drivers from their support sites with either a model or serial number.

If it's been put togther by someone else you will need to get the drivers for the motherboard and it's onboard components, graphics card drivers(if is a stand alone card), any other expansion cards and other hardware. The manufacturer of each component should have drivers available.

There are two main ways to find out who made what in your system, hardware ID software(can't recommend anything because I don't normally use them) and opening up the system(while off), taking note of the part numbers then searching them on the net.


Just remember you need to know exactly what hardware you have before you can get drivers for it. Also remember to backup all of you important files before formatting!
