Default Reinstall of Windows XP - 02-09-2011, 05:17 AM

Hey Guys,

My wifes Dell Mini 10v has been VERY slow as of late. I bought the Dell Mini 10v Summer of 2009. Apparently this Dell Mini 10v is one of the lucky few that didnt have a restore partition on it. I tried "CTRL + F11" as well as F8 on the startup/boot up screens. I can get into the F8 but nowhere does it say anything about system restore. I have a copy of Windows XP Professional on hand and decided to reinstall using the USB method. I got Windows XP Pro on it with no problem but now. I think I have driver issues, cause it doesnt see the NIC card, Wireless card as well as the web cam and sound card. My question I guess is. Where do I need to go to get these drivers so I can install them and get everything working?

Thanks for any info!

I have located the website in which to download the Dell drivers, I'll chime back in if I need further assistance! Any other input is welcome however!
