Hi, I haven't got a Dell but try this site for the USB driver that is missing. With XP there is no support for USB2, an updated driver is required. Did you download the drivers from Dell? If not, that could be why as they may be old drivers.

Hi, I have reformatted the disk & reinstalled Windows XP home edition on my Dell Inspiron 1300 (passing it on to family), but function key(s) including disk drawer open and battery level no longer...

yeah sounds like a driver problem. I dont tinkj its the keyboard driver though as dell sometimes uses the main board drivers to control Function Elements..

Update the drivers from here..

Just update all while your at in in case your using a generic driver.

Wireless card wont work

the problem may be that the WLAN-device (which is on the motherboard, no extra card!) in device manager appears listed as unknown PCI-device and windows may have problems in finding it.
When doewnloading the driver software, please make sure you are selecting the appropriate driver fitting both the motherboard-based device (see the exact model of your laptop, not only the 1300 series)
and the windows version you are using, sometimes it is helpful to install an older winversion like WIN XP or WIN 2000 Professional instead of Vista and pick the still available driver, I don't know if Win2K still is supported by DELL, but WIN XP may.
WIn VIsta is not ripe yet, rely on older but approved software instead. Good Luck

My Laptop Dell Inspiron

Check the disc for scratches, this could be a bad disc. However, I'm leaning towards another issue besides the hard drive being bad. Tell me what initially happened to make you buy a new hard drive. Hard drives aren't effected by the heat produced by the machine, so tell me what made you think it was heat that caused the hard drive failure.
