How to save software drivers on a seperate partition so the system can read them? - 10-15-2010, 09:25 AM
Now I'm not complete computer newbcake here.. so I have an issue that I think I know what the problem is... it's just I wanted to know if there was a quicker and easier solution then just reformatting. I believe the problem is my computer isn't paritioned correctly to be able to download system files like drivers from a seperate partition... let me explaine...
I have an issue w/ the sound on my computer, and the problem is blatantly obvious... I have no sound device installed because the driver that I have is corrupted or is the wrong one. To my knowledge there is no physical issue w/ the hardware that I'm using.. I believe the hardware is onboard sound, not PCI soundcard... but I'm not sure. It's a laptop so I can't physical pop the case open to figure out what sound hardware I have... if I remember right BIOS sucks so it doesn't say anything about plug and play or doesn't list the sound device... tried to Google to find my systme spec's but no sure answer because my laptop was manufactured w/ many different types of hardware on the same chipset.
The system has installed a generic Audio Codec that isn't functioning.
***** Now I think what the problem is is that I just plain have a corrupted driver or the wrong one... so I can just go and get the right driver from the software manufacturer and re-install it... easy fix right? Well my brother is the one who wanted 2 go ahead and redo my last system format, so I think he partitioned the system wrong.
Long story short there's not enough room on my C-parition (primary system) to download it, and I tried saving it on the seperate partition and the driver install STILL tries 2 download it to the system drive and/or just plain won't work if I try to save it on the seperate partition.
I'm gonna reformat again soon, but for the time being I want 2 get my sound working and I want to figure this issue out just for experience w/ computers.
