I recently installed xp on my friends computer and need to install drivers, but i have no clue kinda computer it is, how can i find out. Ive tried going into my computer properties, but no luck

For drivers, it would more useful to know the hardware rather than the builder. Use SIW or similar.

SIW??

Type SIW in google and download the free version.
SIW will tell you all you want to know about your PC>

Technoob.
You could also download Belarc Advisor. Does the same thing and its free.

"Does the same thing" - but not as thoroughly.

Kemistri.
I agree that Belarc is not as thorough but when you are dealing with someone who is unaware of such progs it doesn`t hurt to let them know what is available.
