  1. Hi people,
    Would you give me the url(s) of the best website(s) that host drivers for all kind of hardware?
    I'm desperate search for the driver of a friend's motherboard... usb doesn't work anymore after complete reinstallation of Xp, etc.
    Thanks

    USB doesn't work eh? Did u skip any files during the XP installation? I did so once and it didn't install the drivers for USB at all. I had to re-install from my friend's disk to fix the problem.

    Well the computer is quite old but it still works fine with xp...
    But it had no reboot cd, so I installed Xp from another cd...
    So some drivers were not installed...
    I found most of them, but the one for the motherboard is quite difficult to find...
    Were can I find the most drivers on the net?

    Try DriverGuide.com. They have one of the largest collection of drivers on the net. They require registration but it's free. Check it out.
    I ask again though, when u were installing XP, when it was copying files in DOS, did it give u any messages like "Unable to read xxxxxx file." and then give u options to Retry, Abort or Skip the file?

    Well,
    my friend installed this windows himself... but she does not really know much about computers... So, if there had been such a message, I'm sure she would have called me to ask what to do...
    So no, I don't think that there were any of those error messages...
    Thanks for the website...
    I'm gonna go chek on it...
