  1. Not possible.

    Why can't you just download the video card drivers on the desktop and install them that way? If you can't boot into Windows, you can't install from a CD anyway, because driver CDs aren't bootable (typically only operating system CDs are bootable).
  2. A CD/DVD burner is like $20 and you can pick them up almost anywhere.

    And you should be able to install your video card drivers as long as you're connected to the internet.

    Install the video card. Power on and boot up - Windows should find 'New Hardware' and will likely have a driver it can use.

    You can either visit AMD or Nvidia to get an updated driver or you can let Windows try and find one.
    Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly
    They mention the automatic and manual methods for updating drivers.
  3. copy from cd to flash drive...but the drivers on the cd are probably out of date..so I would just download the latestfrom nvidia or amd
