clean install of xp problems

November 10, 2010 at 07:27:20
Specs: Windows XP
I bought older dell inspiron 531 running xp home (no disks) and had many problems... no restore or recovery worked. So, I did a clean install of xp with disk from another computer running xp home and it worked great - only thing is now, modem is not listed in control panel and many yellow tags in device manager (drivers not installed) - internal hardware is still connected but not listed any more. Went to dell site and saw lots to download but nothing would download. Is there a dell operating disk or something available: can an xp disk fix this - any help please???

you need the motherboard chipset drivers. See if you can find out the make and model of the mobo.

There you can download....for free a complete set of drivers. Program will look at your hardware and install any needed drivers. Download....burn to cd...cd has autoplay.


Or you can do a search on your own for driver packs.

You have to download it and install it. It contains all the drivers for your mobo, like modem / nic card / audio and onboard video plus all the controllers.
