Question about Computers & Internet
I just bought a new hard drive to add some drive space to my computer. I installed the hard drive and then installed Windows XP professional. No error messages came up and everything seemed to be working fine. After fiddling around with it a little, I realized that no internal speakers were recognized nor was my Wi-Fi working. It recognizes my Bluetooth but does not enable my Wi-Fi. On top of that, when I drag a window across the screen, it is all lagged and jittery. Any help?
Here is likely what happened.. Your original Hard drive Probably had the Operating System and System Drivers/Software Embedded onto it from the manufacturer.....which uses a Restore CD set
You added a New Drive.. which comes Blank, Then loaded XP.. Now you still need your System Drivers... this will have the drivers for your Wireless and sound and the right display driver etc... You should go to the Manufacturers website of your Laptop and Download the default drivers from their website
