Default Please Help

I've just installed a new hard drive and reinstalled windows XP on it. Everything worked fine on the old drive but stupidly I formatted it after I had backed up all my important documents and stuff

Now all seems well except that the computer is not recognising my graphics or sound cards. I think the motherboard has built in sound as there is only the graphics card in a pci slot.

I thought it might just be a driver issue but I don't know what make or model the vid card is to try downloading a different driver.

Anyone got any ideas what the problem might be.

Cheers
jon

You need to reinstall all the drivers.

How can I reinstall the drivers though if I don't have discs that came with them and don't know the make and model?

The only info I could get from the video card itself was:
