First, what are the problem(s) ??

Second, are you talking about re-installing windows when you say "i really need to format my computer" ??

Third, what specific driver do you need ???

Gives us the make and model of the computer and we can link you to the drivers. Do you have a XP CD or a repair disk for the computer?

Download and install SIW System Information for Windows - http://www.gtopala.com/ , this will give you much useful info about your system.

You don't have an owner's manual for your system? No sales receipt, invoice/receipt?
