Default Drivers Not Working

Does anyone know how to download the specific drivers for a laptop when I don't know which ones I need. I'm missing audio drivers, video drivers, etc. I was able to get the wireless on fixed but that's it.

Windows Update. Find out the model number or just give up.

Usually you can go to the laptop manufacturer's website and get drivers. Or you can download Aida32 or Belarc and run them on the laptop to see what your hardware is. Then you can go to THAT manufacturer's site for drivers.
