Hello. My name is Daniel. Just recently, I reformatted my laptop successfully. However, I noticed that many things are missing in it. After searching on the internet about this, I would think it would be the drivers. I would like to access the internet with its built-in wifi, but I cannot because I do not even have the wireless connections driver. How can I install all of the laptop's drivers (or at least the wireless connections driver to download the rest online) without a drivers CD and without access to the internet using the laptop itself? Here is some specific info of the laptop:

Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP3 32-bit
Dell Vostro 1400
IntelCore Duo CPU

Please help me to the best of your knowledge. Thank you for your time.

Note: I am currently using a desktop computer to type this entry.

use the desktop to go to the laptop manufactures website...download ALL the drivers for the make and model of your laptop...copy the drivers to a usb flash drive or burn them to a cd...use the cd or flash drive to install the drivers on your laptop
