Go into Device Manager and write down all the devices such as video adapter, audio, network card(s), etc. Then go here:
and input the machine specifics, then get the drivers and burn to a CD. Upon installing XP you will get a basic screen with no sound. Install the drivers you downloaded and you should be good to go. Since you say you're infected, DO NOT do an "over the top" install, or upgrade. Do a full format and clean install.

Hi, I have a compaq presario v2000 and it has many problems. I think it has a few viruses and things like that. It currently has Windows xp home and i was going to upgrade to Windows xp pro. The question i have is if I need to install drivers when i reinstall (lost the driver cd). I was wondering if it will even display anything, if it needs some display driver or something. Should i make a cd with all the drivers on it, Where can i get these drivers?? Or after i reinstall can i go on the internet or something and get it straight from there?? I am just worried that if I reinstall and dont get the correct drivers my computer wont work at all
any advice or help??
