    I have a DELL computer
    I've had it for 2 years
    recently i used the windows XP backup cd to reinstall windows XP
    and it works fine
    except for two things
    The speakers dont work anymore
    I think it is because of a couple of drivers
    If i go to device manager
    there are 4 driver things such as PCI device, SM BUS controller, Video Controller, and VideoController [VGA compatible].
    Im not sure what these are but they arent working.

    And after i re-installed XP
    when i minimized windows
    or dragged windows
    it laggs sort of
    im not sure why

    Both seems to be a driver problem, audio and video respectively. I cant' figure out why your backup CD didn't install the drivers properly but you can determine you audio and video chipset with a hardware detection tool (like PCWizard or HWinfo32) and download the drivers from the correspondig webpages.
