    Be advised that you can not reinstall any applications from that site. Those are only updates for installed aps. The drivers are all good though.

    did you reformat with the restore disc that came with the computer? If so then you may have more discs which have the drivers and applications on them. My Dell desktop came with 3 or 4 discs. the windows xp was only the OS and I had to install the other discs and then manually reinstall all the apps and drivers.

    If you have broadband available and can find at least the driver for the ethernet then you can go online to the manufacturers for the other devices and then download the drivers hopefully.

    If you do not know what your hardware is then a nice little program to get if you end up with the internet running is Belarc Adviser. it will tell you a lot about what is in your computer as far as hardware and programs

    I did a restore on my cousins Dell and she had lots of CD's from Dell. I did not want to use the restore CD because of the added junk. It waslike 4 years old but I called Dell and they still helped me out. I had the one windows CD and then the monitor CD. Then abother CD had all the drivers on it for the the hardware.
