Thank you for your prompt reply onthelimit. I do have the use of another computer running Windows 7.
I don't know where to go to get the latest versions of those drivers..I don't even know what they drive! Do they make the internet work?
The XP CD doesn't have SP 3 on it so should I d/l on to a CD and then put it in the laptop?
You might have guessed that I'm not too good at this stuff and I have been trying for 3 days to work it out.
