version and make of ur required device, and then search for the appropiate drivers either on
the manufacturere site, or u can also find them on ( username: driver,

heres all the drivers including the XP ones
of course you can allways do a fresh install then use Everest (the application formally know as aida32) to interrogate the system and tell you where to get the drivers :)

Thats what I do cause Im lazy like that

Everest Home Edition

If it didnt tell you where the drivers were at least it would give you a list of the hardware and you can get them from  username: drivers password: all

This probably wont help, but I tried to rebuild my Sony VIAO PCG-FX501 laptop a while back and couldn't find most of the drivers for ages. Then, when I used SOny's repair CD, I noticed a folder on the root of the C: drive called 'Drivers' and they were all in there. Doh!!

Nothing seems to be working for XP Drivers. This was a Windows 98 Laptop
