Just to let you know i had the netgear adapter disabled earlier, but it hasnt even become about that anymore. the whole comp seems like its struggling to do anything, Happyrck said he was still surprised it was still running with the amount of bad/corrupt drivers.

Let's see where happyrck is headed with the drivers and irq settings. He should be back on in a bit.

in post 35 wannab1 advised " Right click "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Click the "Hardware" tab, then the "Device Manager" button. Do any devices have a yellow ! or ? displayed next to them?"
you reply "funny. it has got a yellow ? next to "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)" under "Other Devices."
later you say you have multiple drivers missing....
in post 70 or so you want to know if getting the chipset drivers from there are ok...that link is to a desktop motherboard....
we need to know exactly what we are dealing with...unplug the external wireless ...get everest home ...run it and use print screen or whatever screen capture program you prefer and post PICTURES of the motherboard specs...
if this is a laptop...then go to the manufactures website and get the drivers for your make and model..
of the drivers that you say were not working..one was the memory controller...that will certainly cause system hangs and crashes....
at this point I want screen shots so there can be no typos or misunderstandings..

go here to get your chipset drivers......
you only have 256 MG of RAM...XP will run with that but it will be slow and you should limit the amount of things running to the minimum...throw in another 512 MGs...watch for sales and you can get it with rebates for about $25.00..I use and recommend ...newegg...zipzoomfly...tigerdirect...cyberguys...
you also only have a AMD Athlon XP 1800+....you can upgrade that to a AMD Athlon XP 2500 for about $40.00 if I remember correctly
you've overclocked it 2 %..if you OC your computer and things aren't running "right"...undo the overclock
looks like you played with your memory timings too...while this is not always a bad thing...you better know what you are doing or you WILL have problems...go to some of the overclockers forums and educate yourself before "tweaking " your system or be prepared for problems like you are experiencing now...
I haven't got the time now to go thru the rest of the report right now..
