Sounds like the install didn't finish when it was reformatted and you don't have some of the drivers you need. Can you get a hold of the discs and an external player?

It does indeed... your best choice is probably be a fresh installation of XP... or you would almost certainly find that you could even upgrade to Windows 7 directly from your existing setup... now there's a thought!

Just realised it was your first post 'sharkman', so welcome to MyDellMini... that doesn't of course mean that you aren't an experienced computer user already, but if not you will find plenty of help on here!
