What else do I need to reinstall apart from XP ??

  PinkFloyd 16:41 14 Jun 2004


I wiped my hard drive and have reinstalled XP, and I have also installed the network drivers. Just wondering if I need to install any other drivers or anything ??

I have a Dell inspiron 5100.

When I scroll down the page in internet explorer it is very slow and shaky and it looks really weird.

windows update might be a good start ,what about all you hardware drivers i.e graphics card , sound card things like that ecc

only drivers for any specialist components you put in your self really, graphics cards etc.
for everything else, windows will automatically put the drivers on for you

anti virus software, firewall, sarss patch

Yes, you need to reinstall any programs you had. Reinstall all drivers, and update XP. (Particularly the worm patches for Blaster and Sasser)

If you have the hard drive you will have to have to reinstall all the drivers for graphics sound modem if you have one and above all SP1 and updates these mount upto large file downloads a pain if you only have dial up.
