    My friend has a Compaq notebook, Model 1800, P3, 128 ram, we want to install XP Pro on it ( has ME). I went here to try to get drivers, Modem, Bios and such, Not much there. Will I have to install a 3rd party software to see what He has and download drivers from there? Or do you think thr stuff will auto detect and be ok?, Mouse and Input Devices

    Note: this computer is just for net and business docs.

    I think if you insert the xp disk when ME is loaded it will come up with an option for it to look at your systems compatability with xp.

    I'll give that A try and then try the AIDA if that doesnt work. Hopefully XP will have the needed drivers.
