    I am thinking about reformatting and doing a clean installation of XP Home on a Dell PC that is 1 1/2 yrs. old. This Dell came w/ XP installed and with integrated sound & video cards - will I run into a problem w/ either of these cards with a clean installation?

    Thanks for your thoughts - Monique:D

    Hard to say you may need to download and install the drivers from www.dell.com - but this isn't a big deal and you may want to download them prior to reformating so as to have them ready. The drivers on the Dell site will also likely be better and newer than those included with XP or those included on the CD's.

    If you have the recovery CD'sand driver CD's then that make it even easier. They'll have all the drivers/software for the computer - it will be just a matter of putting in the CD's.
