Re: wireless not recognized after windows xp clean...

I'm seeing two different wlan drivers on the site, Intel WLAN, and Ralink WLAN. I would verify you are trying to use the correct one.

I need to re-install Windows XP Home Edition

Contact Averatec and order recovery media, if they are still available.
If you cannot get a Windows XP OS to install, you can always try Linux. The Ubuntu distribution, and most other ones are free.

Memory installation

With the way computers are setup now it is plug and play and it will be recognized the very next time you reboot your PC. Find the appropriate memory based on your PC. Make certain to get the right memory based on your PC specifications. It takes a philips screw driver, locating the memory slots removing the old and placing in the new! If you need more help just let me know! It is really quite simple!
