    My dad owns an old dell laptop which i am trying to revive it.

    Summary so far - Dad forget password. I format it via boot by
    thumbdrive. Halfway installing, there was a bluescreen. Next thing i know is the USB port is not functioning. So i had to take out the laptop harddisk to put the window installer.
    So now i managed to get window XP into the laptop but
    the wireless/lan and USB port is not functioning :wall:
    I do not know why USB is not functioning, so installing driver is my last resort.

    Attached is my screenshot of device manager
    which driver should i download ?

    This is the link to dell driver website under the laptop model.
    Drivers & Downloads | Dell US

    any help is greatly appreciated :wave:

    Latitide D400? Where's the link? I think you should be able to find all the drivers in Dell website.

    I would right-click those drivers and get the Device ID and Google it, it will help to find out the manufacturer and model of the device.

    Inspect the bottom of the notebook for a label with the Service Tag. Then use the Service Tag at Support for Home Users | Dell Malaysia to find out the exact specifications of your Dell notebook and the latest drivers for it.

    Alternatively, the Dell link above has a Detect Service Tag option, which allows you to download a mini app to scan your Dell notebook and look for the Service Tag.
