The download is an .exe file - did you run it? Same applies for the other missing drivers, install the chipset drivers first for the SM Bus controller, then the Audio Drivers.
downloaded the vid drivers for XP and pointed the driver up date to it but to no avail

Gooday all. I am reviving this topic, reluctanrly, as I am having an issue loading the VGA compatible driver. I have followed all the previous steps that got me where I wanted to go but this time I cant get the VGA compatible driver to work. I have tried everything I can find to finish this but to no avail. Any help appreciated

Well it's not actually the VGA Compatible driver you're wanting to install, that's just what Windows calls its own "always works" internal driver that it loads when there's no other driver present or something wrong with the installed drivers.
Do you still have the unzipped driver folder from last time, or have you downloaded the driver package again? Is the problem exactly the same as before, and what steps have you followed this time?

Gooday Platypus. Firstly, this is exactly the same machine as last time, I installed XP from the same disc and when the installation finished I had exactly the same issues re Ethernet driver, resolution,sound etc. I went back to your post and I believe that I followed your advice to the letter. As can be seen from the last time it worked a treat, so I cant figure what is different. As the sound is the only issue, ethernet and resolution work fine, I have tried just installing the sound driver again in lots of different ways. I have downloaded it direct from the website to the computer, I have downloaded to this computer, put it on a usb and tried that way. The machine has a sound card in it too. I tried to download the driver for it from the sound blaster site but cant get that to work either. Also, I am unable to instal Java. I will go over to the other computer and post a speccy. I have removed the SB card.

Here it is. I just tried Java again and I got a screen advising windows updater was unavailable. I have read up on this and thought I had fixed the problem. Could end up being a clean install and start again.
