    Hello Jaydog45,

    Since you installed a fresh copy of Windows XP, you are going to need to reinstall a lot of drivers.

    What is the make and model of the problem computer?

    Do you have the model number of your computer? Or is it custom made?

    You should never do a fresh install of Windows in a computer without first identifying its devices and obtaining drivers for those devices.

    Does that fresh copy of Windows XP Professional include the Service Pack 3 upgrade?

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Right-click My Computer, then click Properties - Hardware - Device Manager.

    I'm guessing there are one or more entries with a yellow ? next to them.

    Double-click each of those entries to open their properties window, then click the Details tab, then select Hardware Ids

    There will be one or more strings that has VEN_####&DEV_#### as part of it.

    Advise what the 4 numbers and letters are that follow VEN_ and DEV_

    Be careful not to make any typos because those vendor and device codes are what identify those devices.

    There should be a number written on the motherboard. Open up the case and take a look. That should be the model number. Just write all of the numbers you can find on it :)

    I need you to submit those 4-character vendor codes and device codes here so we can identify those devices and then locate drivers for them.

    Without the drivers installed, those devices won't work.
