when i plug my USB stick in to my laptop it brings the little bubbles up saying that it is there but if i go to my computer it doesnt show up with an icon and hence i cant access the work on it. I know the USB stick works as i used it before my laptop went skitz on me and broke.

any tips guys

thanks

So if your memory stick works on your laptop, its your pc that doesnt work USBs?

Install tweakUI click here and make sure all the drive letters are ticked

I'd be utterly amazed if you haven't got XP SP 1 installed, particularly as Microsoft are shortly due to release SP 3.

Yes, it is very necessary to improve the security and performance of your PC.
