How do i get drivers and more free memory on my notebook, Thats what it keeps flashing up and im getting stressed ive just got windows xp pro installed after weeks of problems.?

Martin, this laptop is so old and has so little memory, it'll be difficult to get much to run on it. The fact that support for WinXP is over leaves you with little to do with it. Donate it and get the tax write off. Keep the external extras you bought - you may be able to use them. Have a look at eBay or Craigslist in your area for a used PC - desktop or laptop. You'll probably be surprised to see what you can get for short money on a machine that can run modern apps. Look for a a machine that has a processor with at least 2 cores (more is better), 4GB RAM and 100GB or more HDD space. Look for Windows 7 - a 64 bit ("x64") version is better than a 32 bit ("x86") version. Most laptops will have built in WiFi and desktops will have a network connection. You can buy a desktop like this for about $60. I know, because I did this summer. HP, Core2Duo, 4GB, 150GB, Windows 7 x64. You'll be eligible for a *free* Windows 10 upgrade IF you have Windows 7 or later installed.

I put my modem in and the ebook doesn't recognize it .do i need software installed to get on the internet. im trying to get internet on my smartbook.

Try buying a wifi router. That way, your ebook (which has built in wifi adapter) and what ever it is you're using now (another ebook/laptop/desktop) can connect to the internet at the same time.
