    What is the model of the motherboard? Try to check the model and the chipset (SIS, VIA, Intel, etc) it will give you information on what VGA driver to download and where to download it.

Usually the video card will run on one of the microsoft drivers that came with xp. There is the od one that will not work For those you need to get the driver from either the manufacturer of the video card or if integrated (built into the motherboard) the motherboard. On a laptop the video drivers are found on the manufactueres website.

From your description I would assume it is a desktop so the video card may be seperate or built in. If it is a common video card then you should have no trouble downloading it from the manufacturers web site. The problem is when it is a off brand those can be harder to track down. If it is a branded PC ie Dell, gateway etc then you can get the information or the drivers from thr website.

You will probably find other things that won;t work as well. Network cards and soundcards usually require the proper drivers and won;t work with the XP versions. You will want to also get any motherboard drivers which will allow XP to peroperlly detect any hardware and idenrify it instead of just getting the unknown device error.

To indetify everything if it isn't a brand name pc you will most likely have to open the case and look for markings. For an example if I opened the case and found the motherboard was a ASUS P4PG with video, network and sound then I would know to go to Asustek search for the downloads page for the P4PG and download everything there was. Then I would run the motherboard or system info drivers first. That will let xp know what it is dealing with. Then I would run video, set that up, then network. At this point you could get on the net and grab anyother drivers for sound usb etc that you need instead of having to copy them over.

This is a good excuse to buy or borrow a small USB flash drive. Even a 1 or 2 gb is more than you need. Then you can just save the drivers to the flash drive and when you have them all plug into the usb on your xp system you are setting up and run the drivers as needed.

When you have it all setup you should burn the drivers to a CD and save that someplace safe. Then if something happens you can just get it setup without having to hunt for anything.
