Angry HELP NEEDED bad!!!!

ok, the comp is an Insignia D400 (piece of crap) I have just

installed a new OS WinXP Pro... yes it happens to be a pirated

copy however i have used it several times so I know thats not

the problem...furthermore...everytime I install the drivers that I

recieved from the company itself the darn thing freezes within

about 3 mins. of use. Now of course the first thing I would

suspect would be the drivers...cause if i dont install them it

doesn't freeze...so the question is...is it the drivers? If so where

can i get the REAL ones? Not insignia.com OR Intel>>???

Unhappy

Intel P4 2.8ghz Northwood core

512Mb ram

Intel D845GVSR motherboard

Sony cd-rw & dvd-rom

Media Bay which isn't recongized

WD HD 60Gb

Kernel Build 5.1.2600.0

This part is a little confusing to me...the case says Insignia all over it however...the system manufactor according to this Excellant System Info program I used called SIW which can be found at majorgeeks.com on the front page...says it's VPR Matrix, Inc. ????
