    In this case:


    On your computer:

    Go into Windows Explorer, left click on Desktop, then File, then New and then Folder - name the folder XXXDrivers (where XXX = type, eg, AudioDrivers)

    Go to the site for your driver, find the RIGHT one for your mobo and OS,(click on the nearest site to you if appropriate) and then download button - when asked where to 'save' the download specify your desktop folder XXXDrivers and wait until the download is complete.

    Once it is done, clear your screen and click on the desktop folder and then on the file inside - copy that to your flash drive.

    Go to your friends place, go into Windows Explorer, left click on Desktop, then File, then New and then Folder - name the folder XXXDrivers (where XXX = type, eg, AudioDrivers) and then insert the flash player and copy the file to the new folder.

    If it is a zip or rar file it will need to be unzipped or unpacked - make sure if you are asked to specify where to unzip/unpack to tell it to do so to the XXXDrivers folder.

    Once you are done that, go to Device Manager and select the device and specify update drivers and direct the search to the folder you made (don't let Windows do it).


    If I missed something hopefully someone will say so.
