Is there a way to reset things so that I get asked the questions again?

Hi lapetite66 -
Is this problem due to a reinstall of XP, or are you trying to add extra Audio Controll ?
If this is a new product / program, is it downloaded from the internet or loaded from a CD ?
Thank You -

Just click the Cancel button .
You don't need to reset anything...you don't have to use the Hardware Wizard...you need to install the chipset driver, the audio driver, and the video driver for that system.
FWIW: Never answer YES to the option to let Windows search to install a driver. Just browse to the driver location or use the self-install feature that most drivers employ today.
System manufacturer and model?

Whats the make/model of the system?
You need to install the chipset drivers (thats the SM bus) and the display and sound drivers.
Its much easier to just download them from the manufacturers website. If the drivers are in a compressed archive the technique you are using will not find them.

If it is a Compaq the model number is on the system somewhere.
Is this a laptop or tower?
If this is a laptop the model number is on a sticker on the underside of the system.
If it is a tower the model number is on the system somewhere, sometimes on the front, sometimes on the back, but it is there.
Compaq made millions of differend models of computers. Without the model number there is literally no way to tell exactly what drivers you need that are specific to your system.

Here you are
Look under Drivers - original & install the chipset first. Then get the graphics, audio, LAN and modem. You dont need the keyboard/mouse unless you want to use the buttons on the keyboard (assuming you still have the original one).
Should be a pretty straight forward installation.
Edit: The way I normally do this is to make a folder called hold on the hard drive. Then download the drivers & create a folder for each - chipset, video, audio etc. After the drivers are successfully installed burn them all to a cd in case you need them in the future.
