thanks very much for your replies. i recently needed a driver for my tv tuner card. i don't have the model anymore coz i already put it away after i got pissed looking for the driver. i sometimes do pc reformatting and installation for some of my friends and there are old pc's that don't have cd drivers anymore. i usually look for the manufacturer's websites for driver support just like sir Ryan's advice but sometimes i encounter parts that don't have brands. just models. so i'm trying to look for a great site that lets you download the drivers for free without having to download their software. I tried viewing FileHippo and it was nice. tnx sir batravishek!
