tumzie first off download cpu-z and run it. it read your mb info for you. then go to your mb vendor web page to get the right drivers. if the pc is a dell or hp or another pre build go to that vendor web page for the drivers.
the first driver that needs to be downloaded is the intel or amd motherboard chipset drivers.
the video drivers can be install be running nvidia or amd driver search tool from nvidia or amd web page.
the audio drivers if your mb uses the stock sound chipset can be found here.

when you wipe windows it loses the inf driver info that was loaded when the pc was new.
