My Solution to Missing Windows Drivers
I hate when I have to reinstall Windows, but I can't find all the drivers.
Reinstalling Windows can be a real pain in the neck if you can't find drivers for all your components. In some cases, you can't even look online because one of the missing drivers is for the networking components. Even if you can get online, you may not even know where to look.
I think the solution to this is for computer manufacturers to have a small flash storage area built into the computer specifically for the purpose of storing copies of the original driver installers for every component in your computer.
If nothing else, it wouldn't be a bad idea for people to create their own version of this idea by proactively copying all their drivers to a USB flash drive. Having it built-in makes it even better, because you can't misplace the drive.
