    No need worry about it. Check manufacturer official website and download driver for windows 7. Windows 7 Driver will comfortable with windows 8.
    If you know when windows 7 is launched on that time it is also take windows VISTA graphics driver. Now also same case is done.

    Reason to choose WINDOWS 8--
    1. GREAT USER FRIENDLY.
    2. HIGH SECURITY(DEFENDER AND FIREWALL IS STRONG).
    3. HEAVY FIRST.
    4. HIGH GRAPHICS.
    Negative side of WINDOWS 8--
    1. HIGH CONFIGURATION IS REQUIRED.
    2. HIGH RAM WILL REQUIRED (MINIMUM-6 GB)
    3. 1 GB GRAPHICS CARD IS REQUIRED TO SET ALL HIGH END PROCESSOR.(GRAPHICS CARD SHOULD BE NVIDIA)

    After all advantage and disadvantages windows 8 is popular in fancy man.

    You can find all the drivers of the windows 8 if it is installed in your computer and those drivers will be pre installed with in the OS but you can add external drivers which improves the systems performance so you can download those drivers from the internet so as to get the drivers into your system and install them.

    Friend, all the drivers which are necessary are in built in the Operating System. You need not install them separately. They are installed during the Installation of Operating System.

    If you want, you can add extra Drivers. You can download them from the Microsoft Web Site or you can buy them in the Market.

    Re: Are drivers available for windows 8 available?

    If you install windows 8 on your windows 7 then there is no need to download and install any drivers.
    If you install a fresh copy of windows 8 then you have some of the built in drivers for your system.
    But that depends upon your system configuration.
    Intel graphics card and other extra hardware drivers wont be available.
    But windows update may find some drives for your system.
    If you wait till windows 8 official release then all the drivers will be available.

    HI,

    Yes drivers are available for windows 8.

    To download Windows 8 drives, you should firstly know what brand of your computer is.

    Check the following steps to download and install Windows 8 drivers.

    1)check out the brand name of your computer.

    2)Go to the official site of your brand. For example, if your laptop is Dell, then go to www.dell.com

    3)Get the driver download page for your brand model, try to see if there is Windows 8 driver for this model. If they exist, then download Windows 8 drivers package, and install them all. Remember, if you are using Windows 64 bit system, you must download 64 bit Windows 8 drivers.

    4)Thats it your query will be solved.

    At last, again, I don’t recommend you to install Windows 8 immediately when Windows 8 is published. The only reason I said just now, if there is no proper Windows 8 drivers for you to download and install, then wait for their publication.
