I recently installed a new hard drive in my computer (Pentium 4, 3 GHz, 512 Mb Ram) replacing the previous one (see my last thread!) and have installed the OEM Version of Windows XP (SP1) that came with the original computer. I have not been able to connect to the internet, have no sound, one of the DVD drives is not recognised and cannot reassign drive letters to the various components (the new hard drive is listed as Drive I?? with nothing listed as C). Looking at the Device Manager I have the following items listed as not having drivers installed: ethernet controller, Multimedia Audio controller, Multimedia controller, Network controller, SM Bus controller, Unknown device (?), USB Receiver, Video Controller and Video Controller (VGA compatible). They are all listed under Code 28 in the Device Manager. The Communications Port (COM 2) is also yellow with the device status saying that the device cannot find enough free resources it can use (Code 12).
I don't have any other disks that came with the original computer (other than a few software programs such as Nero that I have already installed).
Can anyone give me an idea of what is wrong and what I might be able to do to fix the problem?
