Your Dell recovery discs will have the drivers you need - you should be able to just use them to install XP and everything should be fine.

Sounds like motherboard chipset drivers. What chipset is that Dell using? If you don't know get CPU-Z. From there get the appropriate chipset package, i.e. Intel, VIA, SiS, nVidia, ATi.

Example.

Go here... http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product ... 5&lang=eng
and download the set for your OS. See if that clears it up.

The chipset drivers are on the link I gave you from Dell - EVERYTHING you need for drivers is there, unless you changed something.
