I have windows xp home edition service pack 2.. My model # is w3107 and it is a emachines computer.. I have went to my device managers and under other devices it shows other pci bridge device, sm bus controller and video controller[vgacompatible] and each one of them have a yellow question mark with a black exclamation mark inside of a circle on the question mark.. I have tried everything, i clicked on the reinstall and it comes up and says that it can't do it... Also each one of the devices says under there property a code 28... I have put another harddrive in and everything to see if it would help the problem but nothing has happened... What can i do?

you need to go to the computers manufacturer's website and get all the drivers for your make and model...

you don't need another hard drive....just the drivers for your motherboard and hardware
