Hey,

So I just did a clean install of XP on my system and I've been having some very difficult problems setting it up. The motherboard is an Abit IP35 Pro, and I keep putting in the disk to install the drivers and everything seems to go smoothly. I'm using XP Home edition. The computer worked more or less fine for several years and it began to have problems before I wiped it, but I thought they were merely software problems. I've installed Windows SP2 on the computer.

The issue is that even after installing the Intel chipset drivers from the CD, the computer doesn't seem to recognize either the USB drivers or the Ethernet cable that is plugged into it. This makes it especially hard to transfer files to the computer. I don't know if this is normal or not, but when I plug mice and flash drives into the computer that have lights on them, they don't light up as long as Windows is running (when the computer is in BIOS they light up fine). In the device manager screen, the PCI bus device is missing (it has a yellow error signal on it), but if I try to update driver from the CD, it has no effect. I also don't know if this is normal, but I cannot find any "Universal Serial Bus" devices throughout the device manager. I hope all this makes it simpler.

Thanks so much for your help!
