Hi -
This site has the latest drivers for your Vision Tec Radeon HD 2600 card - That can be one problem -
The others should be able to be found by normal driver search in control panel -

Thank You - :thumbsup:

@noknojon - Thank you
@Broni - how do i fix that
@Hamluis - I went to that site, got the audio working but still says found new hardware for Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus. I downloaded the .NEt drivers and installed them fine. Some of the drivers on the page u referred me to needed it. I really need help getting it back online mostly, im sure i can get the rest taken care of from there. Plus i have 29 days left to register windows.

Next time make sure all your drivers are updated first before applying any service packs or updates to Windows.

@cryptodan - I reinstalled XP..do you know if its even possible to keep the drivers you have and still make a fresh install? Im wondering if there is a folder or something i can put on a seperate partition before reinstalling windows, so i can just copy that folder into the new install partition and have all my hardware working?

You can download them all and burn them to a CD then when you get done with the install pop the driver CD in and install them all.

I usually get that driver from (gulp!) WINDOWS UPDATE. Something like KB888111 or something like that....?
