    Systemdriver for old Compaq

    A friend of mine could install winxp on an older compaq desktop without installing MB-drivers. he could also get internet-access.

    Since we must resinstall winxp anyhow on a bigger drive i would like to find the proper drivers.

    in a first attempt i used a systeminformation tool on ultimateboot-disk to get the proper modelname.
    but i am not sure if i have enough informations.
    which is a good system-informations-tool?

    What is needed is like this example:
    Presario 2522

    Then we can go looking for drivers. But if all the items in device manager have drivers, the XP had them. Nothing else is needed. Yes drivers are one reason the OS installs are so large.
