Re installing XP

Postby moanersRus » Sat Dec 29, 2007 3:40 pm

does anyone have any tiny drivers?

i am re doing reds laptop after looking on the net it says xp should install most drivers back in after SP2 has been put on.

i have just turned it on and if her laptop was human it would be dead with all the viruses that came up so we decided to start a fresh, also some idiot decided to take of the legit xp home and put on a copy xp pro which would not help matters . so it will be installed back with xp home (the original activation code is still underneath) and then go from there.

ahh sounds like a job for driverguide google it make an account search them up and ull be ok =D> (hopefully) good look i know how you feel, bought windows 2000 and installed it on an old melenium edition laptop (evil melenium) 2000 did a much better job for me altho it was rather slow and i ended up getting used to melenium witch was worse then 95 and 98 (but as far as 3.11 goes its brilliant!!!)
