First it was running without that unofficial service pack and so I installed that to be able to use my usb flash drive but when I plug it in it does not seem to recognize it still.
Second I have the two CDs that came with my home PC that runs Windows XP and I thought I would be able to use the CDs to install Windows XP on the laptop but when I pop in the first CD that installs the necessary drivers it will not complete the installation b/c it is not a Dell PC. So my question now is there anywhere on the internet I can download the necessary drivers to install Windows XP on it? I thought also I could just reformat the hard drive since nothing on the laptop is of importance. I really have no idea where to go from here.
Alternatively if I cannot install Windows XP on it I'd like to know if it is still possible to connect it to my wireless home network which is currently shared by a Dell PC, Playstation 3, and Dell notebook.
Thank you for any help possible.
