Just to make sure there's no confusion, Windows XP and not Windows Vista is currently installed in that computer, correct?


Double-click each device that's listed in the Other Devices heading.

That will bring up a properties window for it.

Click the "Details" tab.

Look for a string that has VEN_####&DEV_#### as part of the string.

Advise what the characters are that follow VEN_ and DEV_.

Be careful not to make any typos.

These vendor and device codes will allow the devices to be identified so their drivers can hopefully be obtained.

lucidity- TSG Rules tell you that we allow only one thread for each computer problem. I've closed two others.

Closing thread. You have had 3 threads going about the same subject, and have changed your request, so the threads about making a recovery disk of XP are no longer valid.
