    You will need to copy them from the Drivers folder on your C: drive to a disc.:thumb:
    Hope you enjoy your ownership of a mesh computer.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for the reply murdoch.
    The c drive was the first place i went to but all there is in there are folders for antivirus and cybalink no drivers for the pc hardware.

    This is a quote from Mesh given to another user when the same question was asked on another forum:

    Sounds like all Mesh machines should have a C:\Drivers directory, and also documentation explaining what to do.

    Yep i have the sheet telling what to do but its not very clear it says
    ( we strongly recommend you copy your drivers onto a cd using cyberlinks power2go. to locate the folder open my computer double click C local disk and should see a yellow folder called drivers.)
    I see the folder called drivers but like i say when i go into it the only 3 files in there are antivirus, cyberlink and isp.
    The anitvirus folder is enpty the cyberlink folder has a folder inside called DVD_solutions with a lot of stuff in and the ISP folder has Isp icons in

    As its a new PC - I suggest you contact Mesh and ask them - or post over at the Hexus forums where someone called 'Davey' will apparently try and help you.

    Good luck!!

    Did you already load the vista?
    I loaded windows vista ultimate on my computer and it loaded all the driver itself.
    Since it was used hard drive from another computer and i am sure that driver was not the right one. I slide the dvd in and start installing the vista. i had the option to formate and delete the driver. i did both. once it loaded the OS. i had all the driver loaded itself except the video card driver was not the right one ( i have thread regarding the video card issue couple days before).
    I had to add a agp (or pci) card and it is working fine. It seems like windows vista does not support some onboard card.
