You need to go to the manufacturer of your computer or systemboard (if it is a custom PC) and download the drivers for your chipset, network, audio, and video. After you have them, install them in that order. The drivers should also be installed before any antivirus, printer, or applications so they will link to the correct hardware.
Even Windoze XP SP3 only knows about hardware up to about 2002. Any newer systems always need the hardware drivers installed.
