Messed up XP

  jimteevan 18:04 09 Jan 08

My system devices are telling me that, Video Controller, (VGA Compatable), SM Bus Controller, PCI Bridge Device, Multimedia Audio Controller, & My PCI Simple Communications Cotroller are all disabled. The problem is that i can't enable them, or the files are missing. I have system recovery disk, but that does'nt work either, can anyone help.

What make and model computer ?

Do you have the motherboard driver and utilities disc,if so run this to install the drivers.

Also check to see if you have a recovery/restore partition,normally tapping F10 or F11 on startup will give you access to three options...if the partition exists.

Hi there, my pc is an Emachines E3201, system recovery wont work, i also have a system recovery dvd, but its about as much use as a chocolate fireguard, iv tried everything i know, which is not much, so if you can tell me anything that would help, that would be great. Ta

As its an Emachine i would be pretty confident it has the recovery/restore partition.

Restart the computer and continually tap F11 to access the partition.
