    Dry loading the software again? Sometimes you need to.

    I love/hate Windows!

    Did you try updating all the motherboard drivers?

    Also did you do an 'upgrade' or did you do a complete reinstall. A complete wipe and reinstall is the best option for switching OS's.

    I would just play it safe and format the drive and reinstall the OS fresh.

    I just upgraded it I didn't to a complete wipe of the old OS. I think when you just uprade the OS, windows recognizes the old drivers...and skips over that process. At least this is what I get from reading other posts......

    any other help would be greatly appreciated

    What I would do:

    Go to the websites for all my respective gear manufacturers (mobo, audio cards, vid card, etc...) and download all the current drivers, then burn them to CD.

    Update the mobo, including BIOS.

    Completely reformat the HD and do a fresh install of XP Pro

    Load all the new drivers.

    All three of those devices you're getting errors on are probably on your mobo, the only one that looks questionable is your MAC, but it's probably the driver for your integrated sound card.
