due to a malware overload and a subsequent windows crash, i was forced to reinstall windows xp. i had to buy the full version, :tazz: reformat my hard disk and install the entire thing from scratch. now i have numerous problems. it keeps wanting to reinstall hardware and firmware i already installed, my camera/mic doesn't work at all, my childrens' games that operate partially from cd just shut off in the middle of the game and have to be restarted. i have a partitioned hard disk. i have some things on my D: drive, and my OS on my C: drive. i really need help getting this tweaked so i can get it all installed and working correctly. once i do that, i can create backups and avoid losing everything again like i did this time. can someone please help me out of this NIGHTMARE??? ;)

The first thing you need to do is check Device manager to see if you have any yellow question marks being displayed.

Just go to Control panel>System>Hardware tab>Device manager.

If you see any yellow questions marks, please post the names here. Then we can move on from there.
