The only problem is with the communication and network drivers. The wirless does not work inspite of installing the drivers and the device manager shows issues on all the devices related to network. any suggesstions. cheers...

    Thinkadvantage will not find my wireless router. Even if I go through the eterhnet connection, it does not assign a valid IP address. So, I tried to disable the program and go through Windows (which had been the way I used to do it before). However, I have found that I cannot disable the ThinkAdvantage software to enable me to find my wireless router through Windows.

XP most likely did not have your sound drives. Go to and plug in your service code to download your specfic drivers.

go to above website and download your relevant, drivers, in fact download them all, and install and reboot, one by one, that way you have all latest drivers installed, as it is now, you only have Windows Generic drivers for all your things.
