  1. hello all,

    I`m totally new here so I will introduce myself first.

    My name is Wilco and I live in the netherlands (amsterdam).

    now my question :

    -I have upgraded my computer with XP pro (windows) I used windows 98 ! :p
    now my computer is telling me that the audio system and video system have to be reinstalled.
    my problem is that I dont have a disk that contains drivers to reinstall !!!

    is there another way to reinstall those drivers ?

    btw I`m not somebody who has many knowledge about computers !
    so if there is a solution....try to bring it simple

    thank u all
    grtz,
    Wilco

    First, you will need to know what audio card and video card you have installed. This way, you can go to the manufacturers site(s) and download the most recent drivers for those products.
    The easiest way to determine what you have is to right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop (assuming you have one there.) Scroll down to properties and click on it. Then another window will pop up. Click on the hardware tab and then click on device manager. This will list all installed hardware in your computer.
    Scroll down to the video display and click on it. This will tell you what video card you have.
    You can do the same for the audio card as well. Scroll down to Audio and click on it. It will list the audio hardware installed.

    Once you've determined the types, let me know and I'll get you the websites for the manufacturers.
