Having the motherboard upgrade from hell - is there a way to force XP to discard all its drivers and search again?

..or should I say forget what hardware it thinks it has and actually look and check!

yes, in device manager right click on a sepcific device and select scan for hardware changes.

Or you can install each individual driver manualy. Instesd of using the "Let windows find the best driver" option. click on, "Let me choose".

From there insert the CD containing the correct driver for your hardware, then direct windows to the drive containing the CD.

Sorry I wasn't specific enough - I needed to change the lot as XP refused to boot even into safe mode so I needed to remove the HAL - and found out how thanks!
