Compaq Drivers.

Anyone know where I can get drivers for a Compaq Presario Desktop SR1705UK other than their website?
I am doing a reinstall of XP home on a machine for a customer tommorrow and the ftp site has not been working since I tried yerserday. (ftp.hp.com)
I like to have all needed drivers to hand before starting a reinstall.

That is the site I was on but the actual drivers are on ftp.hp.com.
I have managed to get them downloading very slowly using wget on my linux server as it just kept retrying until it got them. Downloading at about 3Kb/s though.

Re: Compaq Drivers.

You would think they would have different mirrors for something as important as drivers?!

Re: Compaq Drivers.

Normally the drivers are built in to any O/S like all big OEM'S drivers unless you have added hardware
