My computer is a Dell Dimension E510. I used the reinstallation disk (dvd) labeled "Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Version 2005 with Update Rollup 2"
I was able to get Windows back up and installed my Linksys wireless adapter so I could get to the Internet on my computer (and not use my family's).
While online I noticed that I could not see video, so I had to install Adobe's Flash player.
Anyway on to the main concern.
I am unsure of what drivers I need to install. Looking at at the "Device Manager", it appears that the "Other devices" is in question.
There are five items in the category all which have yellow question marks and an exclamation mark:
"Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
Also when I go to "Sounds and Audio devices" in Control Panel, I can not play any of the sounds under the "Sound" tab. Also the "Volume" tab does not allow me to adjust the volume (it's grayed out) but this may be because I do not have the speakers plugged in and I also have headphones plugged in. When I got this computer a while ago, I eventually unhooked the speakers and just used headphones.
So I at least know sound/audio drivers are some drivers I need.
I am in desperate need of assistance. Once everything for the most part is resolved and all the drivers, etc are located, I will copy the drive .exe files and any other important things on to a flash drive. Then I will once again reinstall Windows then install the drivers again just to make sure I start out fresh.
