    I personally do not recommend third party driver software.

    Have you downloaded the drivers you need or did they come pre-installed?

    OPTION 1:
    Download Driver 4.1 Backup Download . Unzip and run to backup all current drivers in your PC to a folder of your choice and later on you can restore from it, saving the trouble of having to re-install every single driver.

    OPTION 2:
    Use Windows built in DISM command. Open Admin Command Prompt. Copy and paste the lines below and run. It will save all the drivers to a folder: C:\Drivers
    md c:\Drivers
    Dism /Online /Export-Driver /Destination:C:\Drivers
    @echo Done

    Copy CodeBox into a notepad txt file and Save As > GetDrivers.cmd
    then just run the cmd as admin

    Script will export either On-Line or Off-Line Windows system drivers

    Code:
    @echo off
    title EXPORT SYSTEM DRIVERS
    color 17
    ECHO.
    ECHO ===============================================================================
    ECHO.
    ECHO.              (A) EXPORT CURRENT WINDOWS INSTALLATION DRIVERS
    ECHO.
    ECHO.              (B) EXPORT OFF-LINE WINDOWS INSTALLATION DRIVERS
    ECHO.
    ECHO.              (X) EXIT THIS GET-DRIVERS PROGRAM
    ECHO. 
    ECHO ===============================================================================
    choice /c ABX /n /m  "PLEASE ENTER YOUR SELECTION"
    IF %ERRORLEVEL%==1 GOTO :CURRENT
    IF %ERRORLEVEL%==2 GOTO :OFFLINE
    IF %ERRORLEVEL%==3 GOTO :QUIT
    :CURRENT
    echo.
    echo ===============================================================================
    echo. EXPORTING CURRENT WINDOWS SYSTEM DRIVERS
    echo ===============================================================================
    md "%~dp0DRIVERS"
    Dism /online /Export-Driver /Destination:"%~dp0drivers"
    goto :end
    :OFFLINE
    echo.
    echo ===============================================================================
    echo. YOU HAVE CHOOSEN TO EXPORT DRIVERS FROM AN OFF-LINE WINDOWS INSTALLATION
    echo.
    set /p path="PLEASE ENTER THE DRIVE LETTER FOR THE OFFLINE INSTALLATION: "
    echo ===============================================================================
    echo. EXPORTING OFF-LINE WINDOWS SYSTEM DRIVERS
    echo ===============================================================================
    md "%~dp0DRIVERS"
    Dism /Image:%path%:\ /Export-Driver /Destination:"%~dp0drivers"
    goto :end
    :END
    echo ===============================================================================
    echo. THE SYSTEM DRIVERS HAVE BEEN EXPORTED
    echo ===============================================================================
    pause
    goto :quit
    :QUIT
    exit /b

    They are preinstalled. They get installed with the OS.
