    Hi
    Ive just re-formatted my pc and because the windows home cd was scratched it came up with a file error and would not let me continue. I borrowed another xp cd but it was xp pro which installed perfectly, however I cant get the cpu to pick up anything usb ie:printer, camera, mp3. The usb hardware has been detected and device manager says it is working properly. But in other devices I have a big yellow question mark saying usb drivers not installed. Ive tried installing service pack 2 but at the end of the installation it comes up windows xp conflict verify?? Can any one please help?

    Have you installed the drivers of the motherboard?

    I re-installed windows xp pro then installed all drivers from my support cd inc usb 2.0. Im sure the motherboard driver(s) was 1 of them. I have no other obvious problem with any other aspect of the pc, just wont recognise any other devices inc usb. Would it maybe have anything to do with installing a different version of windows than the 1 that came with the pc?

    Right-click anywhere in the hardware list, and then click on Scan for hardware changes.

    Ive tried the uninstall and reboot. The wizard search's for the drivers and dosn't find them. I have a small partition of my hard drive with recovery drivers but it dosn't find anything on there. Also on the windows cd, nothing in there. Ive contacted the manufacturer (medion) and they are sending me a new recovery disk. So hopefully when that comes through I can solve the problem.

    Ive been offered the use of an original copy xp Pro to install on my medion cpu. However, can i do this and validate it as it came with a dell pc or would I run into more problems?

    If it's a straight copy of XP and not a restore disc, then yes. Microsoft doesn't care about the CD's as much as the liscence key. You use the same CD on 100 PC's so long as they have different keys.

    Its a re-installation cd, is this a problem? If so what do I need to do? buy a new copy of Windows Xp?
