Um, Windows XP does not normaly require special drivers for CD-ROM drives, so I don't know what you're talking about. If you can boot the machine and get on the internet, you should be able to fix a lot of this simply by going to Windows Update. It should have updated XP drivers for your hardware.TJack said:Most of my drivers are incompatible with WinXP, including my CD-Rom drive(cannot read discs). How can I resolve this problem? I have no problems with losing all my data if I need to reformat, but I'd like to know when all is done that the discs will be read.
Go to Windows Update, click "Custom" and then examin the "Hardware, Optional" section. It should have some XP-compatible drivers for you.
If that doesn't work, find out what the make and model-number of your video card, motherboard, sound card, modems, NICs, etc. are, and then go get the XP-compatible drivers from the web sites of the various MFGs.
