Recently formatted my pc:

Advent T9202
Intel p4 3.4ghz
400gb hdd
1gb ram
x600 pro 256 pci-e

Gone into mirc and done /sysinfo this is what i have according to it:
x86 Family 15 Model 3 Stepping 4
Socket 478
Micro-Star International MS-7046


After formatting i received errors with windows. Errors popping up saying system restarting bla bla in so many seconds. I then re-formatted and re-installed windows XP again.

I no longer get these errors, however when i go into device manager and try and get drivers for my shizzle it doesn't let me / can't find any.

I also cannot download SP2 now and my sound card is 'none detected'.

XP Home Edition Vers: 5.1.2600 SP1

Boot device: DeviceHarddiskVolume2

I have got the internet and my modem working (as you can see)

Anyone have any clue of how i can fix this/ if there are CDs that have all drivers for certain PCs on them etc ?

Thanks for any help in advance !

So you were having device manager search for your drivers? I've never been successful with that. I'd go to the manufacturers website and download them from there.

As far as SP2, you should be able to get that through windows update.

You can download the full redistributable for SP2 here.

As for the drivers, dmroeder is correct: download the drivers from the manufacturers website instead, you'll be sure to get the right drivers that way. In my experience the Device Manager has never successfully located a driver without help.

Typically M$.
