I just had to reinstall XP on my old computer and now the visuals are low resolution, theres no sound, and I cant get on the internet. I think I need the drivers for the network card, sound, and monitor but I dont know how to find them. Where do I look on my comp to find the names of the cards? I think there is a site that has drivers, driverguide or something.

Are the original components still installed...none have been replaced?

Hi mastershake100 -
First - Can you go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and check whether there are any Yellow or Red ! marks beside any items -

Thank You -

Download either Belarc Advisor or Everest. Check the specific hardware you have then go to the websites of the hw manufacturers and download and install the current drivers. Start with the chipset driver for your motherboard.
