Greetings, Mikeal88, and welcome aboard.

Your report is showing a VIA P4X400 chipset, so I suggest first loading the Hyperion 4in1 driver. Install the package with the defaults, reboot, and then check your Device Manager for any remaining flags.

Since you're running XP SP2, you may have to load the MS UAA Audio patch before installing any audio drivers, but let's get the chipset out of the way first.

The drivers Caliban pointed you to are out of date. I suggest you get your drivers directly from VIA at

No Problem. You just assumed the ones posted were the latest. I sometimes make that mistake myself. Nowadays, I always go straight to the vendor's pages.

ok thx you guys.i have installed the chipset drivers.i've searched and searched for the right lan driver.seems like thats my only issue.sound was never important becuz this is a work computer and my work doesn't involve anything in which i would be in dire need of sound.this pc was really outdated and i just wanted to see if i could get it to run like new again.if the lan would work all would be well.audio wouldn't hurt i don't guess since i've came this far to fix it.anyways if you guys could keep giving me your input maybe i could solve this issue.thanks everyone

Hi.

You're listing the Realtek RTL8139, so try the XP driver from this page, see if you can get the LAN cranked up.

For Audio, try the VIA AC97 audio driver.
For network, try the 8231 Integrated driver
