Hello,

I have reset my computer fully so that there are no programs what so-ever. When I first logged on to my computer it had come with a set of programs. I am using windows XP professional. I just wanted to know if I could get that set of programs back...

Thank you for your help! :)

You may have gotten a CD when you bought your computer containing software that your computer came pre-loaded with.

Other than that, I fear that there may be no hope for your lost programs unless they are freeware can be downloaded again.

Yep, sometimes finding a particular CD can bring you right around the house.

If I was an organised person I'd store them in one compartment, but, I'm not that type of person :)

Also after fully reseting, do the sound cards disable themselves because im not able to hear anything...

Looks like you to install the drivers for them.

Go to Start > Run

Type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter

Do you see any red or yellow alert signs?

If you do follow this procedure:

Download Everest Home Edition from here

Install and execute it.

Expand "Computer" and right click on "Summary"

Now click on "Quick Report"

Copy and paste the report not including anything under "PCI Debug"

Yep, I see yellow alert signs for; Other PCI Bridge Device, PCI Simple communications Controller, SM Bus Controller, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller, and Video Controller. When I click on them it says it's not installed but gives me an option to reinstall it.

Do you have a driver CD that came with the computer?
You will need to install the chipset drivers for the board that is in your computer.
With the Everest report we should be able to get the info that we need to get the drivers.

What type of computer? Is it Dell, HP, Gateway, home built?
If Dell we can use the service tag to go directly to what you need.
