"i have even removed and reinserted the battery"

That certainly won't help & it may make things even worse. Did you run through all the BIOS settings afterward & correct all the values that you reset by removing the battery? Did you try reinstalling the moptherboard chipset drivers or USB drivers? Are you really only running 256MB RAM for XP?

"how is the motherbord chipest driver driver installed?"
It comes on the motherboard CD that is supplied with a new comp.

If you don't have it, download SIW & find out your MB details & then google that number or go the Dell site.

I use SIW for Licenses & Passwords.
1: Left hand column. Software > Licenses.
2: Software > Passwords
3: Top bar. Tools > Win 9x Password Cracker.
The Freeware SIW is a Read-Only / Display-Only System Information tool that gathers detailed information about your system properties and settings. A standalone tool that does not require installation.
A utility that includes detailed specs for Motherboard, BIOS, CPU, Devices, Memory, Video, Drivers, Ports, Printers.
It displays information about Operating System, Installed Programs, Processes, Services, Serial Numbers, Users, Open Files, System uptime, Users, Network, Network Shares, and more, as well as real-time monitors for CPU, Memory, PageFile usage and network traffic.
SIW also displays currently active network connections, Passwords hidden behind asterisks, installed codecs, and more.
