I have Windows XP SP1, and decided to format my hard drive. Basically, everything went fine until I had to install the drivers. I have all of the original disks but I couldn't install from there. Then I decided to visit Dell.com and download their latest drivers and install from a flash drive. Same exact problem. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so here are some pictures of what's happening (or not happening).

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated. I'm completely lost now and have no clue what to do. I've also tried to "reinstall" drivers through device manager while the CD and flash drive were inserted and still no luck. Thank in advanced.

There is no such operating system as "Windows EX 2003 SP1".
Do you mean Windows XP or do you mean Windows 2003?

I am going to assume that your OS is Windows XP b/c of the theme you are using. By the way, thank you very much for the pictures as they help us a lot. :)
If my assumption is wrong, please tell me which OS you are using.

Give me the make and model of your computer.
Also post an Everest Report. Click on "Everest Instructions" in my sig, and follow the steps entailed.

One more thing, can you connect to the Internet?

Wow thanks for replying so quick. Yeah sorry, I meant Windows XP FROM 2003. It's a Dell Dimension 4550. And no, I can't connect to the internet, that's the problem. If I'm not wrong, I'm missing the driver that detects the internet signal, or at least that's how I understand it. Here's the report:

I downloaded and installed it but it only fixed one of the missing drivers. I'm in school and photobucket is blocked so I'll post the picture later but the ethernet one is still missing.

Wow, thanks guys for all your help, it seems like you put a ton of time and effort into helping me. That broadcom link you sent me didn't really have an effective download (there was no file to actually execute) but I ended up finding a solution. I uninstalled my intel driver, and installed this http://downloadcente...s...al&lang=eng

At least for now, it seemed to do the job. But once again, I really can't say thanks enough. :)
