    Do we have to install drivers in Windows 8 Consumer Preview OS? Where to get the drivers as only Windows 7 32/64 bit drivers available but not for Windows 8?

    I am planning to install Windows 8 Consumer Preview OS in my system, but before that I want to know if we have to install drivers also in Windows 8 Consumer preview OS? Where to get the drivers as only Windows 7 32/64 bit drivers available but not for Windows 8.

    NO drivers are not available for windows 8 os yet bause it is still in its testing phase,microsoft has not released the drivers for windows 8,they will be released with final version of windows 8.so wait till that time.

    Hello,

    You can download the drivers from the internet.
    There are drivers provided for different mother boards for windows 8.
    You simply have to download them and install them just like you did in windows 7.

    Regards

    From windows vista onwards Windows started to provide the drivers along with the OS.
    There is no need to install any driver for your PC or Lap.
    I am using windows 8 CP in my lap and I didnt install any drivers for my lap.
    Mic, Speakers, Webcam,USB ports, Wireless switches, DVD all are working well.
    Just install the Windows 8 CP.
    No need to worry about the drivers.

    Hello,

    If you are in search of all drivers then do as i mentions.:

    Open the Device Manager

    Select the driver that you want to download & right click on the driver

    Then go to Details tab and copy the driver

    after it open your browser and in it

    open a website "www.devid.info"

    Coming from glass windows landscape onwards Windows 7 begin to deliver the drivers combined with OS.
    You do not have to put in virtually any motorist to your PC or maybe Lap.
    I am employing glass windows 8 CP around my lap in addition to We didnt add virtually any drivers to get the lap.
    Mike, Loudspeakers, Webcam,USB plug-ins, Mobile turns, DVD they all are operating well.
    Simply just add the actual Windows 7 8 CP.

    Hi, Dear friend

    Actually, There is no need of any drivers about the WINDOWS 8

    Because All the drivers..... are already included with OS only

    So, there no need for the Extra drivers ... ... And if you want to install ... any optional drivers .. Simply insert the Mother Board Utility CD in to the ROM and install them

    But most of the times ... you may get the ... Compatible error

    IN that case ... only search for Latest DRIVERS Depending on you Mother board MODEL No ... and download and install them

    And to know you mother board Model ..simply press Windows key+R and type dxdiag and click OK and then click YES if prompted

    Now tap on GENERAL tab....and see the Mother board model and type ... and others ....

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
