Exclamation Calling all nerds!!

I've got a friend who bought a laptop from someone. He has a partition drive on his Gateway laptop. I've been trying to re-install Windows XP but I can't because he doesn't have a windows xp cd. If he buys a new Windows XP cd do I have to do anything else to install it or will it work just with the XP cd alone?

Yes you can do a fresh install from an XP cd. Do yourself a favor and go into Device Manager and write down what harware you have (i.e. nic, video card, sound device) and then download the drivers and burn them to a CD before you blow away the partition and reformat. Usually you can find all the drivers from the manufactures website just by entering the machine model number. But most have variations of what hardware they offered in that model. That is where writing down what you have in Device Manager comes in handy.

you will need to have all the drivers for the installed hardware in the laptop.

if you want to do a fresh install on a sony vaio fs notebook for example..you have to have all the hardware and device drivers and they have to be loaded in a specific order.

it's going to be a job.

i would go to manufac. website and see if you can download what you need, better yet find out if there is a load order.

have fun..
