I re-installed W7 and my drivers are still here?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey this isn't a problem but I was just wondering something. When you re-install an OS do your GPU drivers still stay? because I only recently formatted my HDD and re-installed W7 and when I came on it seems the drivers for my GPU are already installed.

PS: It seems I still had to re-install my LAN drivers but for some reason not my sound drivers... this is weird.

EDIT:

LOL never mind that's the first time that has ever happened. I just checked and apparently windows auto updated the drivers. please lock,delete or ignore this thread.
