    I just reformatted and clean install of windows xp. In the device manager I have two yellow bangers.

    Universal Serial Bus (USB) Contoller
    Device Type: Other
    Manufacturer: Unknown
    Location: PCI bus 0,device 16, function 3

    and

    Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
    Device Type: Other
    Manufacturer: Unknown
    Location: PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0

    When I did the reformat and clean install I disconnected everything but power, mouse, keyboard, power.

    I tried the wizard to find the drivers from XP cd but didn't work.

    I have two usb's on the front of my computer that I used before clean install for my cd tower and my wireless mouse. I used my old PS2 mouse for the clean install.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure that the mobo that you have got USB 2. It means you need Service Pack one and if you do happen to have a via chipset mobo will need the 4-in-1 drivers. Also if you have a via chipset there is a small download which will let install USB 2 drivers..
    When it comes to the VGA, well you need the drivers from www.nvidia.com. D/L the lastest detonator one BUT before you install the nvidia driver go ahead and update mobo's chipset driver ( nforce 2, VIA , ALI etc..) then install nvidia display drivers.
