Ok have you tried to install the drivers from the cd yet?
Let me know and I will try to find updated drivers if needed.
Also when you booted up did XP say it had found new hardware?

Yes it said a new hardware has been found and then popes up the driver installation wizard and i try to get the drivers installed from the cd and at the end, after the setup finished it said: "Cannot install this hardware. The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find necessary software".

After some research I finally found the website for Foxconn Here

Fill in the drop down boxs and you should be able to get the newest drivers from there. There are several versions of that model so I would suggest you get the first one in the list as it will be the most generic for you.
Download it and and save it to your Desktop and if it isn't a self installing driver then you will have to go thru the update driver again and this time point it to the newly downloaded file you saved to your desktop. Let me know how this works for you :)

You are welcome. Let me know as I'm watching this topic to make sure. I'm hoping this is the problem and you may have a damaged drivers disk.

OK it's time to go :) on this. I need you to follow the next steps in order and let me know what the results of each step are.

Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results


Lets see what you have in your startup services area

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Services
Click on the Hide All Microsoft Services
Then uncheck everything and restart.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results


If your attachment is to big to attach then upload it to your screenshot site and supply the link.


We will continue after these steps are done
