msconfig problem, i disabled system i ini and win.ini

The reason for this was to make pc run and load faster, it does but i have lost all my drivers.

I go into device manager and nothing appears.

I cant use system restoe becase i have low harddrive spase and the monitors were turned off.

i have a 500gb external usb harddrive but usb drivers are malfuctioning.

I also lost my networking drivers, I i could only get online i could get my drivers back by downloading

I have a wireless usg interface, i installed the driver cd and it still dont work,i just need help toget my drivers back on for that i can atleast listem to sonund, music and surf the net.

You might try running repair from the Windows XP install disk, if you have one or can borrow one.

Insert disc in cd drive, start computer and it should boot from disk, if not restart computer, go into bios and change boot order to have cd drive ahead of hard drive.

When the screen comes up asking if you want to run the repair console, select no. The next choice will be to reinstall or repair current os. Choose repair.

This should install at least basic drivers for everything, at least enough to get you onto the Internet to dowload updated drivers for those devices that might need it.

One question, how much ram does your computer have? If you are looking to speed your computer up, adding ram is always something to think about. It's cheap these days.
