I have reformated my Dell dimension 8400 and now it doesnt see "other devices" in the device manager. I am running xp pro but bought it with xp home and even tried installing that with same...
If your missing devices are built into the motherboard (like sound, Ethernet etc.) then you need you install the setup CD that came with your computer and install the devices. This CD may also be referred to as a utility or driver CD. If you don't have this CD you will have to go to the support section of the manufacturer's website and either order a replacement CD or download the drivers for your MB.
If you missing devices are on plug-in cards or printers/scaners/ cemeras etc. that you installed after you first setup your computer then you need to install the driver CD for each missing device and run the setup program that is on the CD. If you don't have these CD's you will have to go to each manufacturer's website and either order the CD or download the drivers for the model number of the device.
