I suspect this to mean that you have a name brand computer such as a Dell, HP, Gateway, etc.
I also suspect that it is not a XP cd. Usually the recovery cd (if that is what it truely is) will load the OS and the drivers.

Please Go to

1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation ! marks or Red X's

In your next reply please include those results

Also please give us the make and model of the computer.
Is it a desktop or laptop?
