dont know about the first problem but if you click start and up to my computer then right click on it and go down to manage. then a box should pop up on the left hand side find device manager and lcik on it. then you should see a list of all of your hardware. right click on whatever you want and then click on update to update stuff.

Default Re: windows cannot find system information

Pop your XP disk in your rom drive, cancel auto run.

Go to Start > Run and type in sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and the /, if you don't type it correctly it will not run)

Hit OK

This is Windows file checker it will replace and/or repair corrupt Windows System files.

It may fix your problem, if it doesn't the post back
