Ok here's the scenerio, I had WinME that isn't a very stable OS so I opted and got WinXP, It was working great, except for AIM having the need to steal the focus for no apparnt reason, I upgraded to SP1, just cause it was there. I restarted my computer it worked fine the first time. And it started not connecting to my router with no error or anything, i try ipconfig /renew and says that it couldnt find a file, i uninstalled and reinstalled my network card, same problem it also takes a very long time to boot up when its doing this, if i keep restarting it, eventually it gets it right. I also get an error saying "Some of the configuration parameteres reported by the graphics driver are invalid. Windows will ignore these settings" everytime i hit Display properties->settings. any input in to any of these problems would be a great help, I updated my drivers to the newest version from geforce. i wasn't smart enough to do the back up before sp1.
