Hi. I am a bit of a numpty when it comes to computers. I have had to reinstall Windows XP on my PC after an error on my hard drive. I couldn't access the drive contents by any means. So, a nice clean computer. However I am assuming I need to reinstall my drivers for my graphics and sound cards. Is this correct as I cannot find reference to either device under hardware manager. I have the installation CD's somewhere so I am hoping it is just a case of following the on screen instructions. Has anyone else ever done this and are there any pitfalls I should look out for.
Thanks for the replies. The PC was built for me by a friend using mostly "name" components. However this was 4 years ago and the graphics card is an NVidea from that time. I am not sure what the sound card is but I have the discs in the loft. I will get them out and try installing them tonight and will let you know how I get on. I am looking at getting a new PC anyway and giving this one to my mum so that is why I would like to get it up and running.
