I recently needed to reinstall XP home to get a PC back to the "as new" condition. This gave me a few problems, and I eventually deleted the existing partitions and allowed XP to create a new one. All went well - windows loaded up - everything fine. But now windows claims my internal dial-up modem is not working (i know it is) and also claims I do not have a sound card installed - i know i have. I also have a second internal hard disc and this has also disappeared. I assume that when I deleted the partition information i deleted some vital stuff that i should not have done - but this is a guess. I have reinstalled all the drivers - but no luck. Any clues on what I might have done and how i get windows to see these devices again? The "add new hardware" wizard is no good as the PC does not admit that there is any hardware. Help!
