Question about Gateway 310S (2900621) PC Desktop
Hopefully you have not tried to reload XP yet.
Back up the current drivers with Driver magician lite.
CD/Floppy disk/Mem stick.
Then have at it. :)
Majority of the INF files are found under C:\Windows/INF
Even then installing OVER your existing XP the drivers should still be there. Unless you tell it to wipe and start from scratch.
Some viri and spyware programs can be so difficult to get rid of or cause so much damage. It is easier to wipe the system and start over.
If this is the case:
Ounce of Prevention is worth a pound of cure:
Spybot search and Destroy
(Basically anything but the windows firewall)
Tip: Only run one firewall!!!!
AVG Free virus protection
NOD32 Virus protection (excellent but not free) 30 day trial however.
IObit360 (Highly recommened and fast!)
