Hi -
Do you have the CD for XP -
Go Start>Run , type or copy/paste in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK .
Have Windows CD handy .
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD.

Thank You -

Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter.

Click plus-sign in front of Sound, Video, Game Controllers.

List the items reflected.

System manufacturer and model?

FWIW: Chkdsk doesn't remove files...it may repair or move them from bad portions of the hard disk...I've not known it to remove anything, least of all drivers.
