my comp crashed not too long ago, so I used that as an excuse to upgrade my hard drive. Unfortunately, I didn't check to make sure that I had all the XP installation disks that I'd need for the new HD. I called dell and they sent me all the disks that came with my laptop originally. Now comes the difficulty...after reinstalling XP, it's become evident that I'm missing a LOT of drivers for the internal hardware of my laptop. Ethernet controller, Multimedia controller, and more than a few others. The result, I can't get onto the internet using my cable connection, I apparently don't have any audio devices, and I'm forced to push my cousins off the computer at their house. PLEEEEEEEEASE HELP.

I'm running an Inspiron 600m

Thanks in advance...beast
