Update family Vista to Windows 8.1

I have a Dell Studio XPS, I bought in 2010. The original operating system installed on the computer is Windows Vista Home.

I want to upgrade to Windows 8.1. My system meets all the hardware requirements. I also know that I have to do a clean install to completely destroy my old files and OS until I can upgrade.

My question is do I can download drivers Dell, etc., on the site or should I take a backup of the driver installation files? For example, the CD/DVD drive drivers, etc.

Thanks for the help!


All of your dell drivers will be available from the support.dell.com website. Once you are there, type your service tag, and you will be taken to a page where you can select drivers and downloads. Once there you should be able to see a page with all the drivers for your computer. Make sure that there are drivers Windows 8.1 by changing the OS from Vista to 8.1 in the box labeled 'Operating System'.
