Reinstall XP - Device Errors


dogbreath1

Likes # 0

Have just reinstalled XP SP 2 on a Dell laptop that was seriously infected with malware.

Installation went OK but am getting errors in Device Manager, Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, O2Micro CCID SC Reader, PCI Device, SM Bus Controller and Video Controller. Another problem is I cannot find the device driver CD's.

Looking for advice on how to proceed!

Good job! I agree with what lotvic recommends and to save your drivers for next time. I use double driver to save all non Windows drivers and burn the folder to a disc. I don't save the video card driver either unless it is onboard.
