Can some one help me to sort out a problem with setting up drivers for the Windows XP harddrive I have just put in my sons Vista Advent laptop. Reason being is that his Windows Vista harddrive is none usable and I had an old Advent Windows XP laptop and I placed that harddrive into his laptop and it started up great but cannot access internet because of drivers not being same..
I have found the folder I386 which I assume will contain the XP CD-ROM image on the hard disk. I have gone on system properties-device manager and it is highlighting in yellow a question mark on all devices and Ports (COM & LPT)
I dont want to uninstall the drivers and port and then restart laptop to hopefully allow Windows to detect them just incase it knackers up anything...So I want professional advice as to what to do.....So can anyone advise me as soon as possible so my son can have his laptop back working. I do not have the original xp installation disc.
