Hi, I just reformatted my Dell inpiron 1520 and downgraded from a windows vista 32 to windows xp 32. I was able to install all drivers except for a few. in the device manager under other devices there are 4 yellow question mark/exclamation mark points. 3 of the 4 are Base System Device and the last one is SM Bus Controller. Can someone help me determine what drivers i am missing? Thanks in advance

Sounds like you might be missing the chipset drivers from here
In the beginning there was the command line.

Good job!

Just for future reference, I typically install the chipset drivers first
In the beginning there was the command line.
