  1. Hello, I have just upgraded to a new graphics card and have decided to completly start fresh, installing XP home edition Sp 2 onto a new HDD so my PC is virtually brand new. up on doing this the same way I always have I went into device manager, and noticed I have PCI slot 1 and 2 drivers missing, the thing is slot 1 and 2 are being used, one by my soundcard, the other by my humongous graphics card., I know I have installed every drive I was given with my mother board, I am begning to think i am having some conflict between my graphics card and mother board. also at start up, when windows starts and i get onto the home page, i get a dos screen with 'updating usb'...why is this doing this? please help...

    Go to ASUS's support website and download and install the chipset driver once more, for your motherboard

    Glad to hear that it is sorted out. My advice was going to be to re-install the OS. I am veryconscious of how often an OS install can have problems.
