Angry Problems With Win XP and Drivers After Format.......

Ok I have a problem with Windows XP Professional. I put the disk in and let it load from the cd and I reformated my hard drive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro. Now I am having problems with installing drivers. Like my sound car and my video card. When I try to install them it says access denied. Can someone please help me out this 800x600 resolution is killing me. And also I need my sound.

Can you log in as administrator to fix the problem? are you logged in as administrator?

What type of hardware are you running, XP is usaully really good about detecting hardware.

You could say I've been around.

Hi marcmdm, after you installed winXP, did it ask you to install your driver? If not, I think it installed all of the drivers successfully and perhap because of system files.
I came up against this problem and I solved it by this way. But I'm not sure so you should try to boot on by the CD and repair winXP.
