Thread: Share your driver download links

  1. #1

    Default Share your driver download links

    This seemed to be the best place to put this. I've been a PC tech for 30+ years and have saved every single driver I have ever come across. I uploaded my entire collection to archive.org last December to help others. However, even with a resource like archive.org and my personal collection I find that from time to time I need to find legacy drivers elsewhere.

    Please share the URLs to your personal favorite or preferred resources for legacy drivers. I believe having these URLs in one place may be beneficial to many.

    Also, if you have a collection of legacy drivers like I do please consider taking the time to upload them to archive.org. I am not in any way affiliated with the site. I simply noticed more and more people are doing this.

    Back in the late 90's/early 00's there were many driver sites where a tech could find drivers with ease. Over the years however most of these have turned into malware factories that can't be trusted. Companies also decided to start purging drivers instead of archiving them which is a shame.

    Drivers.eu definitely has some obscure older drivers, I was able to track down a working copy of a Compaq Armada BIOS setup disk from that website as well as the correct MS-DOS drivers for the Armada 7400's CD-ROM drive.
    Vintage computer systems and peripherals I'm currently looking for:
    IBM PS/2 Model P70, Compaq Contura 3/25, Any Toshiba Libretto laptop from the Libretto 50CT up to the 110CT, Commodore 1541 disk drive in working condition.

    Send a PM if you are interested in selling any of these items to me. Thanks!

    That site gets blocked from my work. So I am guessing there is something questionable about it.

    Here is a web site I use to find old software. I have also found a few drivers in the many CD-ROM archives found here:
