  1. hi,
    I just recently installed Win xp back onto my dell laptop but I still have a few issues like:
    1.My wlan card isn't showing the network bars or anything in the toolbar.
    2. I also tried plugging in the network cable,yet still nothing.
    3. My speakers aint working either.
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    After installing on operating system like Windows XP, you have to install all the motherboard, sound, graphics, LAN and other drivers. They were on the hard drive and were wiped clean when you reinstalled.
