Right before I say what's wrong I just need to say im not sure if this is the right forum for this? When I had my Dell Inspiron 8600 I think I had five diffrent disks for using when I want to delete everything on my hard disk and re-install Windows XP. The disk I think I am missing is the one for the Drivers allthough I cannot remember if I had one in the first place I think i may have binned it by accident. I need to re-write everything on my hard drive to what it was like when i first turned it on and was wondering if can download the drivers needed from a website or order a new disc from dell. I have had a look around the Dell website but is very confusing and when you go round in circles with all the links on there site. Anyway I would be very grateful if anybody could help me with this.

ThankYou In Advance
Tom

I have got to this page before but I am unsure which ones to download? Also if I were to put these onto CD would i re-write my hard drive and install Windows XP once that has done would I then put the disc with all the drivers on and install them one by one?
